Putrada Ekadashi 2017, Putrada Ekadasi

Putrada Ekadashi 2017, Putrada Ekadasi


Pausha Putrada Ekadashi 2017 Date is December 29 (Friday). Paush Ekadashi also known as Pausha Putrada Ekadashi and Putrada Ekadashi, is one of the important fast that is observed by devotee Hindus. Putrada Ekadashi is being observed so that they are blessed with a child. A child could be a male child or girl child. As all other ekadashi's, this pausha putra ekadashi is also dedicated to his highness Vishnu God. People who observe fast visit Vishnu temples in large numbers.

Putrada Ekadashi Meaning


Putrada in Sanskrit means “giver of son” means the couple or men/women who fast on this auspicious day of Lord Vishnu are blessed with a child or son. Childless couples fast on this special day so that they are blessed with a son and become proud parents or get the santaan sukh. The Putrada Ekadashi that comes in the month of January usually comes in the month of Pausha and thus called Pausha Putrada Ekadashi. There is also a Putrada Ekadashi that comes in the month of Shravana during July/August and thus known as Shravana Putrada Ekadashi. Both of these ekadashi's come in the Shukla paksh of Hindu calendar.

Putrada Ekadashi Fasting


Newly married couples are advised to fast on this day of Putrada Ekadasi and dedicate the whole day worshipping Vishnu God. As traditionally if blessed with a son is considered the blessing of the God as the son can perform various rites and is understood to take forward the name of his father and ancestors. This vrat is being observed by people who want to have a son since ages. But now the times have changed and childless couples want to have a son as well as a daughter or any of them.

Bhavishya Purana also mention about Putrada Ekadashi. Lord Krishna narrated King Yudhishthira about the ekadashi that all Hindus must observe the Ekadashi fast with deep respect and devotion to Vishnu God and surrender themselves to him, this will help in achieving salvation or moksha.

Importance of Putrada Ekadashi


Shri Krishna tells of Ekadashi Vratam in Narada Purana like this :

अश्वमेधसहस्राणिराजसूयशतानिच।  एकादश्युपवासस्यकलांनार्हन्तिशोडशीम्।। 

It means that not even thousand Ashvamedha Yagas or hundred Raja Suya Yagas could match the Ekadashi fast.


Legend of Pausha Putrada Ekadashi


There is a story available of Suketuman and his queen Shaibya. Both of them left for the forest extremely saddened by the lack of progeny. They come at Lake Manasarovar and visit one of seer's ashram on the day of Putrada Ekadashi. After getting the divine blessings of seers, the couple came back to Bhadravati. Fasting on the day of Putrada Ekadshi as advised by sages, the couple soon are blessed with a baby boy. So, the importance of Putrada Ekadashi is clearly visible. Therefore every childless couple or newly married couples must observe this putrada ekadashi vrat or fast.

Shravan Putrada Ekadashi date is August 22, 2018. In North India, Shravan month Putrada Ekadasi is also known as Pavitra Ekadasi or Pavitropana Ekadashi.
