2. Cosmic Gods were suffering so much that they had no other option left but to see Lord Vishnu regarding the matter, seeking help. They had to defeat the demons to protect themselves.

3. Once in front of Vishnu, the Supreme Lord, they told their situation to Him. But, He replies to them that he lacks the required powers to destroy Asuras. He knew that only Lord Shiva can help.
