Lord Brahma created universe and decided to test one of his creation. This creation increased by manifold and covered entire earth and ate everything that came in its way. The two other gods Shiva and Vishnu requested Brahma to do something as this creature destroyed everything that came on his way. Brahma regretted and called Astha Dikapalakas i.e. god of eight cardinal directions. With all their might they controlled this monster. Astha Dikapalakas brought this huge monster flat against the earth. Then Brahma jumped in the middle of the monster and brought him down. Other 40 gods helped Brahma to bring monster down. Then the monster pleaded and argued in front of Brahma that he was being punished for his creation. Brahma made monster immortal with a boon that he will be worshipped for any structure erected on earth. He was called as Vastu Purush.
