Rama Ekadashi Brata


Kartik Krishna Ekadashi or Rambha Ekadashi or Rama Ekadashi is the Ekadashi of Krishna paksha in the month of Kartik, this Ekadashi comes only 4 days before the Deepawali.

Meaning of the name "Rama"
Another name of Mother Lakshmi is also Rama, this is also the reason why this Ekadashi has become very important for Lord Vishnu. This Ekadashi is so important that fasting on this day yields the equivalent of 1000 Ashwameg Yajnas and 100 Rajshuya Yajnas.

Rama Ekadashi Vrat Katha
In the Mahabharata, Krishna gives an example of the devotion of Chandrabhaga to Yudhisthira, giving a great description of this Ekadashi. Chandrabhaga and his father Muchukunda and husband Shobhana are associated with this Ekadashi.

On the day of Rama Ekadashi, King Muchukunda tells everyone in the state to fast. After Chandrabhaga marries King Shobhana, Shobhana also starts fasting on this Ekadashi, but the weakening king Shobhana dies one day.

After her husband's death, Chandrabhaga moved to her father's house in Muchukunda's Kingdom. But under the influence of Rama Ekadashi Vrat, Prince Shobhana was seen on the Mandarachal mountain, this kingdom was rich in wealth and happiness like Indra Rajya. One day, a Brahmin from King Muchukunda's kingdom went on a pilgrimage and forgot the way and reached Mandarachal mountain. When he reached there, he suddenly saw Prince Shobhana. He got all the details of how Shobhana reached Mandarachal. Shobhana narrated all the incidents and told the Brahmin that he had attained such heavenly peace due to the influence of Ramakadashi's Vrat.

Due to the influence of Rama Ekadashi's Vrat and abhisekh, Chandrabhaga's body also became divinely ignited. After that, Chandrabhaga approached her beloved husband Shobhana, and said that all such unprecedented reunions were possible due to the influence of Rama Ekadashi vrat. That is why those who perform the vrat of Rama Ekadashi have been believing since time immemorial that all sins will be eradicated and prosperity will be achieved.
Best wishes
