Importance of Ekadashi

Fasts hold a lot of significance in our country. There are defined directions for every religion and fast observed in India. Fasts help in your internal purification, or you can say the purification of the soul. Observing fasts also increases the purity of heart and mind, and there is a development of good qualities. To get the blessing of Lord Vishnu, the Ekadashi Fast is considered supreme. Every month, there are two Ekadashi’s (Eleventh days). When it is Adhik Maas or the extra Month, there are two more Ekadashis. In this way, the total count of Ekadashi’s happens to be 26. As per their names, these Ekadashi’s are the ones to give positive results. If we observe a fast on the Ekadashi Day, reading or listening to the tale or Katha and worship Lord Vishnu with utter devotion. In that case, there is the attainment of various auspicious results, and after leaving this mortal world, a person finds himself in the Vishnu Lok.

The Fast of the Ekadashi is principally divided into Nitya and Kamya. Suppose the Ekadashi fast is observed with a selfless spirit. In that case, it is termed as ‘Nitya.’ If this is observed with the wish of fulfilling any worldly desire, it is termed as ‘Kamya.’ Now let us tell you the authentic and classical method, doing which you can get auspicious results.

Ekadashi vrat Katha: 

There are many ways to observe Ekadashi, and there are different types of Kathaye. All stories have the same meaning, i.e., the Ekadashi vrat Katha was for King Yudhisthar, narrated by Shri Krishna himself. Like, e.g., Jaya / Bhishma Ekadasi:- According to the ancient tales, Indra dev was listening to Gandharva Music with Pushpadanta and Chitrasen. There were others present in the court as well, like Pushpadantas, daughter,

Pushpavati, Chitrasen’s wife, son, and grandson. When she saw Malyavan, Chitrasen’s grandson, Pushupati fell for him. They got carried away with admiring each other and distracted the musicians by adding the wrong notes in between. Indra Dev got angry due to their behavior and cursed Pushpavati and Malyavan. Due to this, they lost all their powers and were sent to Earth to live life as humans. 

Pushpavati and Malyavan tolerated the problems of life on Earth for many days. To get rid of this curse, they did fast on Ekadashi Tithi of Magha, Shukla Paksha, under the Peepal tree. Lord Vishnu, impressed by their devotion, relived them from Lord Indra’s curse, and they gained their powers again.
