However, the same night Nairatmya manifested for him, and said:
Noble son, do not act in this way. Pick up your rosary, clean it, and take up your practice again. I am the deity which whom you have a karmic connection to, and I will bestow my blessings upon you".
The following evening Nairatmya appeared to him again in her own mandala of fifteen goddesses, and she bestowed upon him the four specific empowerments, and he reached the first bodhisattva bhumi level including the Path of Seeing. On the evening of the twenty-ninth day he became a bodhisattva of the sixth bhumi. The monastic community at Nalanda monastery knew that something strange happened, but they were dubious about the strange behavior of Virupa, and he left the monastery.
