PaapMochini Ekadashi - Friday 24th March
PaapMochini Ekadashi: Falgun Vad Ekadashi
King Yudhishthir asked, "O Shree Krishna! Please narrate me the significance of Ekadashi falling in the dark fortnight of the month of Falgun. What are the rewards of fasting on this Ekadashi."
Bhagwan Shree Krishna replied, "O King Yudhishthir! Falgun Vad Ekadashi is called PaapMochini Ekadashi. King Mandhata once asked Sage Lomash to narrate him the significance of PaapMochini Ekadashi. Let Me reiterate the same once again."
Sage Lomash replied to King Mandhata, "O king! The Ekadashi falling in the dark fortnight of Falgun is called PaapMochini, meaning, it can dispel one's all sins. Undertaking its Vrat enables one to fulfil all his desires. Indeed, one can even become free from the life of spirits by observing its Vrat. Let me narrate an example of a miracle of observing the Vrat of PaapMochini Ekadashi."
