Significance of Saphala Ekadashi
Saphala Ekadashi is one of the most significant festivals observed in the Pausha month of the Hindu lunar calendar. There is a notable legend linked with the celebration of this festival. Once there was a king called Mahishman who had an evil son, Lumpak. After getting tired of Lumpak’s evilness and harmful activities, Mahishman sent him to the jungle and isolated him from his kingdom. Luptak lived a miserable life in the forest and suffered a lot. One day, Lumpak was extremely tired because of the bearing toughness of the forest. He woke up after a while and felt hungry; then, he collected some fruits to fulfil his hunger. He then thought about all his evil deeds and repented and admired Lord Vishnu the whole night, seeking an apology for his misdeeds. Unknowingly, Lumpak observed Saphala Ekadashi fast, which blessed him with Lord Vishnu’s blessings. Lumpak then became a good person and started ruling his father’s kingdom.
