According to the mythical story, this is the time when Goddess Lakshmi asked Lord Narayana that, ''when you are awake you remain awake all the time and when you sleep you sleep for millions of years. During the time of your sleep, all the grazing is destroy because of which you should sleep from time to time every year. This will also give me some time to rest''. Sharing the words of Goddess Lakshmi Shri Hari smiled and justified the words of Lakshmi Ji saying that if he is awake then the Gods, Asuras and Lakshmi suffers a lot as they do not get time to rest so now he promises to sleep every year. He promised Lakshmi Ji that he will now sleep for 4 months every year so that all the Gods including Lakshmi can get a chance to rest. This sleep is known as Alpa Anidhrakalin Mahan Nidra. He said that this will be very good for his dear ones.
