Balarama tried to kill that lion, but it disappeared and he by mistake killed a cow. Ghohatya dosham had come to him. Balarama asked krishna what to do?

Krishna told him to go round the earth once to get away from this dosham. So Balarama left his weapons on the spot and left to go round the earth. It took 18 days for Balarama to go round the earth, by the time he came the battle was over. Their is a mark of balaramas weapons on the stone.
