Vijaya Ekadashi 2018: Legend of Vijaya Ekadashi


When Lord Rama and Vanarasena, the monkey army thought about how they can cross over the ocean to reach Lanka,  Lakshmana told them about a great nearby Sage whom he thought could provide them the way to reach Lanka and come as victorious. The Sage told Lord Rama and others about the Vijaya Ekadashi fasting and its benefits and how they can reach Lanka.

When Lord Ram reached to Samudra (sea), he asked the sea for the help on showing them the correct path to Lanka, but the Sea God didn't reply. The great sage was named Balada Bhaya who was asked by Ram and Lakshman to show them how they can reach Lanka. Saint Balada Bhaya advised the two brothers to observe the Vijaya Ekadashi fast. Upon observing the Vijaya Ekadashi fast, they will definitely come as victorious in any difficulty and obstacle they face on their way to Lanka, said sage Balada Bhaya. Not ony that, he also told that this Vijaya Ekadashi vrat will also help them in defeating the evil powers of Ravana. Therefore, Lord Rama observed the Vijaya Ekadashi fast and this helped him in winning over Ravana as well as rescuing his wife Sita.
