Vijaya Ekadashi

Vijaya Ekadashi falls on the Krishna Paksha Ekadashi (eleventh day of the waning phase of moon) in the month of Phalguna (February – March). Answering a question by Yudhistira, the eldest of the Pandavas, Lord Krishna says, Vijaya Ekadashi is a rare one among all the fasting days. It is sublime in washing away the sins of those who fast on this day and engage themselves in worshipping Lord Vishnu. Also, Lord Brahma says Sage Narad that befitting its name, Vijaya Ekadashi bestows victory upon the observers.

Vijaya Ekadashi story

The story of Vijaya Ekadashi is associated with Sri Rama, the incarnation of Lord Vishnu. When Ram, Sita and Lakshman were in exile, the wicked demon Ravan abducted Mother Sita and carried her to his country Lanka. After a great ordeal, Rama discovered the whereabouts of Sita with the help of Hanuman. Rama prepared to wage a war against the demon Ravan and hence wished to cross the ocean with the mighty monkey army headed by Sugriva.

Obstacles cleared

When they were confused on how to cross the ocean with the big army, sage Bakadalabhya advised Rama to perform the Vijaya Ekadashi vrat which can clear their worries and confusions and also make them win the war against the demon.

Vijaya Ekadashi Vrat benefits

Sri Rama organized a grand puja and fasting commemorating the Vijaya Ekadashi and got clarity of ideas and the means to win over the demon and released Sita from his captivity. Thus, having been observed by Lord Rama himself, the Vijaya Ekadashi vrat is said to be the most powerful and popular vrat observances for the Hindus.
