Varuna being disappointed and angry, ordered seven clouds to go and pour down their contents for the destruction of Madura. Accordingly these clouds came, with threatening gloom, lightnings, and thunders, and produced a deluge by sending rain with drops as large as pumpkins. The god seeing these things, ordered the before-mentioned clouds to interpose; which they accordingly did; and by spreading a covering above the town and beneath Varuna's c;ouds, prevented any more rain from falling. Varuna, now discerning the intervention of the god, went and bathed in the golden lotus tank, when his inward pain immediately ceased; on which he besought pardon of the god for his aforesaid misdemeanours and thanking the god for the removal of his pain, he returned to his own city. From that time forward Madura acquired the title of "The assemblage of the four clouds."
