एरे गांगु डोटी को रौताग छीये,
छै पालिया दीवान छीये,
बाबू भवैचना को कुंवर छीये,
बुबू केसरी चना छन
गांगू कि उदेख बैराग लागो त्वींकै ।
डोटी गढ़ में गाँगु तेरी पूर्वा जनम कि
बैरी निकली भाना बामणी।
दन्या कुड़कौली बटी दुल जोशी की चेलि
भाना जोश्याण भान बामणी
स्वैणी स्वप्न में ऐगे डोटीगढ़ में।
भूली डोटीगढ़ रौ छीये , खाट तुला सेर छीये
गांगू काटी हानी रवीण आब,
कुमूँ कुम्याण ऐ गे भाना जोश्याण
ज्यूण मैय को च्योलो होलै,
म्वार ध्वाका आये दन्या कुड़कौली मैय
दुल जोशी की चेलि छूं मैं।
मरि मैय को च्यलो होलै त
डोटी में पडि रये भुली ---- 

                 Maharaja Bhavaichand the king of Dotigarh was prosperous king. For many years he did not father the child. He goes to Haridwar. Then Fyunli queen becomes pregnant. When she delivered a son there was sudden darkness that was sign of auspicious child.
 The queen advised the king to know from astrologer about the future of child. The astrologer told that the child had exclusive stars. Astrologer told that the child would rule for twelve years but later on some odds would happen. The child was Gangnath.
     Gangnath was flirt too. His father received complaints of his son flirting.

            One day, Gangnath was sleeping. In dream, the daughter of Bhavani Pant and wife of Kishan Bhana come in his dream. Bhana put a blood written letter below his pillow. Gangnath awoke and saw the letter. After reading letter, Gangnath became restless. Gangnath started playing his nine tone flute. The first one reached to Indra in heaven, the second tone reached to the hell and third tone reached into palace. His mother asked the reason to Gangnath for his flute play in that dark night.

  Gangnath told that Bhana came in his dream. Fyunli queen became worried and asked his son that she would bring seven wives for Gangnath. She cautioned Gangnath not to visit Joshikhola where Bhana was there. Fyunli cautioned her son that there were twenty two brothers of Bhana who would kill him.
   Gangnath took the gold from palace and asked the gold smith to make ornaments for a monk. The goldsmith requested Gangnath not to renounce. However, Gangnath did not listen the goldsmith. In monk dress and ornaments, Gangnath went to Sitavani. There he bowed before his Guru.  Gangnath took renouncement.
  Gangnath went towards Joshikhola. On the way, plough man Jhakruva met him who informed that husband of Bhana Kishan Joshi had gone to Haridwar.   
           Gangnath reached to Joshikhola and visit Bhana’s house. Bhana offered tasty food to Gangnath. Gangnath lived there for months. 
  Joshi brothers came to know that Gangnath was hiding inside house with Bhana. Joshi brothers threw stones. Gangnath ran from there. Joshi brothers ran after him. They killed him by stones in Vishwanathghat. Joshi brothers killed Jhakuruva too. They brought out the child inside Bhana. They killed the embryonic child.
   It is said that on third day, Gangnath took rebirth along with the child. The child took rebirth as Barmi. As soon as they took rebirth there was earthquake and much unrest in Joshikhola.
 Later on Joshis bowed down before Gangnath. Gangnath became deity.
