In the honor of Lord Vishnu, durvasa had nothing to give him so he presented him with the garland of Vilva Patra given by Lord Shankar. Lord Vishnu accepted this offering but put it on the neck of Garuda. This made durvasa realized that Lord Vishnu has insulted Lord Shankar. In such a situation, Durvasa cursed Lord Vishnu that all his things will be taken away from him and he shall become Lakshmi vihin. Not only this, the Sheshnag and Kshirsagar should also so be taken away from him.
