About Aja Ekadashi Vrat

AjaEkadashi Vrat is observed on the lunar day of Bhadrapada Krishna Paksha Ekadashi(day of eleven).Aja Ekadashi Vrat is an important festival dedicated to the worship of Lord Vishnu.Aja Ekadashi is also popularly known by the name of ‘Ananda Ekadashi’.

On the day of Aja Ekadashi devotees observe a fast in the honour of their deity, Lord Vishnu. The observer of this vrat should also eat ‘satvik’ food even a day before, that is on ‘dashami’ (10th day), in order to free the mind from all negativities.The observer of the Aja Ekadashi vrat gets up during sunrise on the day and then takes a bath with mud and sesame seeds. The place for puja must be cleaned. On an auspicious location, rice should be kept, over which the sanctified ‘kalash’ is placed. The mouth of this kalsah is covered with red cloth and an idol of Lord Vishnu is placed atop. The devotees then worship the idol of Lord Vishnu with flowers, fruits and other puja essentials. A ‘ghee’ diya is also lit in front of the lord.

Aja Ekadashi Vrat Katha

There was once a king named Harishchandra, who was well known for his honesty and noble manner. He was well respected by those in his kingdom. The famous sages Vashista and Vishwamitra however doubted the truthfulness of the king.
Vishwamitra declared that the king was not as truthful as everyone believed even though Vashista thought otherwise. The noble king respected the views of Vishwamitra and decided to renounce his kingdom and live a life of seclusion. He went and settled in Kashi where he became an undertaker, with a lot of grief in his heart.
During his stay at Kashi, Harishchandra came across another famous sage by the name of Gautama. He disclosed the reality about his plight to Gautama who lend a kind ear to the king. On hearing the sad story of the king’s life, Gautama advised him to observe a fast on the Krishna Paksh Ekadashi of the Bhadrapada month, known as Aja or Annada Ekadashi.
The king continued living his life truthfully and religiously and observed the fast of Aja Ekadashi with great devotion. The result of that was that Vishwamitra was convinced about the pious and sin-free nature of the king, and gave him back the right to rule his kingdom.
Miraculously, the king was also able to revive the lives of his dead son and his wife even returned to him. After that the pious king lived a happy life and ruled his kingdom in great prosperity. Thus is the greatness of the holy fast on Aja Ekadashi.
