Kamada Ekadashi

କାମଦା ଏକାଦଶୀ

Chaitra Shukla Ekadashi is celebrated as Kamada Ekadashi. It is also known as the Phalada Ekadashi.
Lord Krishna says to Dharmaraja Yudhisthira – In ancient times, the city of Bhogpuri was ruled by a wealthy king, Pundrik. Apsara, Kinnar and Gandharva lived in the city of Bhogpur. Among the Gandharvas, Lalit and Lalit lived in a very luxurious home. Once in Pundrik’s Rajya Sabha, he sang beautiful songs with the Gandharvas. Lalit also sang while meditating on his wife Lalita, breaking the rhythm of the song. Knowing the reason for the rhythmic rhythm of the snake song Carcot, he pointed to the king. King Pundrik angrily said to Lalit- Remembering your wife while singing in front of me …. You become a monster, you enjoy the fruits of your deeds. Under Pundrik’s curse, Lalit became a demon and began to suffer. When his wife, Lalita, found out that her husband was a monster and was wandering in the forest, she was sad and thought about rescuing her husband. To save her husband, Lalita followed her husband to Mount Vindhyanchal. There, Shrungi went to Rusi’s ashram and met Rusi and expressed her grief. The sage heard all this and said- O daughter of Gandharva, now Chaitra Shukla Ekadashi is coming. It is called Kamada Ekadashi. All this work will be accomplished by performing this Ekadashi vow. The husband will soon be freed from its virtues. Lalita formally observed the Ekadashi vows. Her husband was demon-possessed and returned to normal. By performing this vow, they were attained to heaven.
