Story of Ekadashi Vrat

Story of Ekadashi Vrat happened during the Satya Yuga and is mentioned in the Puranas. Legend has it that Bhagavan Srihari Vishnu was engaged in battle with Demon Mura during the Satya Yuga.

The battle went for several days and feeling tired Bhagavan Vishnu decided to rest.

However, Demon Mura decided to attack Srihari Vishnu while he was sleeping.

Suddenly a young girl appeared from the body of Bhagavan Vishnu and she annihilated demon Mura.

She was the primordial mother and pleased with Her, Srihari Vishnu called her Ekadashi as she appeared on the eleventh day of the fortnight.

He also granted her the boon that anyone who observes fasting on Ekadashi Tithi will become free of all sins and will attain moksha.
