Once Narada was so immense in meditation, that Indra grew suspicious. He sent Kamadeva to tempt him into breaking his meditation. A beautiful girl emerged from Kama's arrow and began tempting Narada, but in vain. Kamadeva accepted defeat. At this Narada said, "Go and tell Indra that Shiva is not the only powerful one, I too have conquered all temptation." Narada then began bragging about his achievement. He went to Shiva and told him the story. Seeing him showing off like this, Shiva advised him not to say anything to Vishnu, but Narada did not take his advice. He boasted before Vishnu, but Vishnu only replied. "Be on guard." Narada's pride had blinded him so much that he could not read Vishnu's warning. On his way back he spotted a beautiful city and discovered that a king by the name Sheelanidhi ruled there. When Narada visited the palace he was informed about the swaymvara of Sheelanidhi's daughter, Shrimati. Seeing Shrimati Narada was captivated. He instantly recognised her as Laxmi's incarnation and realised that only a man as glorious as Vishnu could marry her. Wanting to marry her himself, Narada began planning how he could get Vishnu's glory. Narada and ShrimatiHe went to Vishnu and prayed for a face resembling Hari. Vishnu granted his wish. Unfortunately Narada did not know that Vishnu's other name, Hari, also meant a monkey. Thus vishnu actually bestowed a monkey's face on Narada. Unaware of the monkey face, Narada asked for the princess's hand at the swaymvara. Every one mocked and laughed at Narada and showed his monkey face.
