WHY VIJAY EKADASHI IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT?

It is considered an old custom to fast on the day of Vijaya Ekadashi. Even Mahadev himself, according to the Padma Purana, was a proponent of Narad and stated that ‘fasting on Vijaya Ekadashi is considered to be a great virtue.’ Those who observe this fast are supposed to be assisting their ancestors in escaping the clutches of damnation and ascending to the throne of grace in paradise. That person also achieves success in all of his or her endeavors and is free of the sins committed in the past in his or her previous life.

VIJAY EKADASHI IS A LEGEND THAT DATES BACK THOUSANDS OF YEARS

It is believed that during the Treta Yuga, when Lord Ram arrived at the coast on his way to Lanka, the dignified man requested that the Sea Lord grant him and his army with a road, but the Sea Lord refused. In order to appease the Sea Lord, Lord Ram fasted on the day of Vijaya Ekadashi with the consent of Sage Vakdalabhya, who was happy with the result. In order to achieve victory over the evil Lord Ravan, this fast was one of the key components. Vijaya Ekadashi has been celebrated every year since that day.
