Story of Papmochani Ekadashi Vrat

This Is How It All Begin

The story begins with Medhavi, a sage and a devotee of Lord Shiva, who was meditating in the forest of Chitraratha. Indra, the King of Heaven, along with Apsaras, used to visit Chitraratha often. Once, an Apsara named Manjughosha was attracted to the great sage Medhavi and tried to break the strong penance of the sage. But she was unable to do it due to the power of Medhavi’s penance.

Manjughosha And Sage Medhavi

The Sage lost all his senses in the lust for Manjughosha and lost the purity of his penance. He was not aware of day and night and got trapped in the plan of Manjughosha. Both stayed together for a period of 57 years, and later Manjughosha lost her interest in Sage Medhavi. She told him the same and decided to leave. The Sage regained his senses and realised the trap of Manjughosha.

Curse Of Sage Medhavi

In anger, Medhavi cursed Manjughosha for turning into an ugly witch. He was in deep grief and sorrow and went to his father, Sage Chyavana. His father advised him and Manjughosha to perform the Papmochani Ekadashi Vrat Vidhi and ask for Lord Vishnu’s forgiveness. He assured both of them that Worshipping Lord Vishnu on Papmochani Ekadashi would help them in life.
