Kamada Ekadashi





Ekadashi, which dates to the Chaitra Shukla Ekadashi (11th day of the waxing moon), is called Kamada Ekadashi. On this day, it is a religious belief to get fruits according to the wishes of people who are purely devout.

Kamada means something that grants all desires, Kamada ekadashi is believed to grant desires and wishes of them who observe this auspicious Ekadashi. The brief study of this Ekadashi mahatma depicts that the significance of this Ekadashi is derived from an ancient incident which happened in a village named "Ratnapura". One day Yudhisthira asks with Krishna to narrate the story behind Kamada Ekadashi, Krishna tells the ancient incident of Ratnapura where King Pundarik ruled from a golden palace. Ratnapura was also a village where king descendants of serpent kingdom lived, these serpents and several other beautiful Apsaras danced in King Pundarik's palace. Once when a dancer named "Lalit" couldn't perform up to the expectation because of his distraction due to his love affair with another dancer "Lalita", King cursed him to be a demon. Lalit's beloved was Lalita, she later observed this Kamada Ekadashi and freed her beloved from the curse, after that Kamada Ekadashi was widely observed and will always be observed till the eternity.

Precisely, this was it about the Kamada Ekadashi, this year and its months on the final edge, a series of Ekadashis for this year is concluded. See you again on a new year's commencing Ekadashi.
