Significance of Rama Ekadashi
Rama Ekadashi is a beautiful festival celebrated in the Kartik maas of the Hindu lunar calendar. Once, a king called Muchukunda was incredibly devoted to the mighty Lord Vishnu. He had a daughter Chandrabhaga, who was ultimately married to Shobhan, son of King Chandrasen. One day Shobhan and Chandrabhaga went to Muchukunda’s kingdom. There Muchukunda announced that everyone would keep Rama Ekadashi fast. Chandrabhaga knew that his husband would not be able to complete the fast as he was ill. But Shobhan kept the fast, but he succumbed to death due to various illnesses. But the blessings of the fast brought him back to life, and he started ruling the kingdom of Devapur. Shobhan received kingdom, riches and blessings because of Rama Ekadashi fast.
