Legend of Vijaya Ekadashi

Upon Arjuna's earnest inquiry, Lord Krishna reveals the significance of Vijaya Ekadashi, falling in the Krishna Paksha of the Falgun month. He recounts the story, reserved solely for Arjuna and once shared only with Devarshi Narad by Brahma. In the tale from Tretayug, Lord Ram, amidst his quest for Sita, sought counsel from the sage Vakdalbhya Muni. Advised to observe the Vijaya Ekadashi fast, Lord Ram, along with his army, did so devoutly. As prophesied, fasting on this day empowered them to build a bridge across the ocean, leading to victory over Ravana and the rescue of Sita. Read full Katha
