Amalaki Ekadashi- Devoted to the commanding Lord Vishnu
Amalaki Ekadashi is one of the most beautiful festivals dedicated to the imperial Lord Vishnu. The mighty Vishnu is the protector of the universe. He safeguards the world from all sorts of demons and evil energies.

Significance of Amalaki Ekadashi
Amalaki Ekadashi is one of the important Ekadashi among the twenty-four main Ekadashi observed in a year. The legend of Amalaki Ekadashi includes King Chitrasena. One day, Chitrasena went hunting, and there, a gang of demons or rakshasas severely attacked him. But a strange divine light emerged and protected Chitrasena from the rakshasas. An akashvani or announcement from the sky announced that he got protection from the divine powers because of his Ekadashi fasts. One more legend linked to Amalaki Ekadashi is gloriously elaborated in Brahmanda Purana. One day, king Chaitraratha observed an Amalaki Ekadashi fast in the forest, and a hunter who was starving brutally joined him. The hunter then became King Vasurath in his life and had all the luxuries.
