Amalaki Ekadashi Vrat Katha 

As per one of the legends associated with Amalaki Ekadashi fast, the Amla tree emerged from Lord Brahma's tears. This is how the story goes. After emerging from Lord Vishnu's navel, Lord Brahma wondered who created him and wanted to know the purpose of his birth. He performed intense penance to know the answer. As he waited earnestly, Sri Vishnu appeared before him. And soon after seeing his creator, Lord Brahma had tears of joy in his eyes. Overwhelmed by Brahma's devotion, Lord Vishnu said that the tears would transform into Amla trees, and the fruits of these trees would be dear to him. He also said that those who would worship the Amla tree on the Phalguna Shukla Paksha Ekadashi Tithi would get blessed by him. Thus, devotees of Sri Vishnu worship the Amla tree on this day with the hope of attaining Moksha. It is also believed that the Gods and the Goddess reside in the different parts of the Amla tree on this day. Thus by offering prayers to the Amla tree, devotees seek Sri Vishnu and other deities' blessings.

Parana must be done within Dwadashi Tithi unless Dwadashi is over before sunrise. It is considered a wrongdoing for not doing Parana within Dwadashi tithi.

Ekadashi Parana must not be done during Hari Vasara. Wait for Hari Vasara to get over before breaking the fast. Hari Vasara is first one fourth duration of Dwadashi Tithi. The most preferred time to break the fast is Pratahkal. One should avoid breaking the fast during Madhyahna. If due to some reasons one is not able to break the fast during Pratahkal then one should do it after Madhyahna.

Ekadashi fasting is suggested on two consecutive days sometimes. It is advised that Smartha with family should observe fasting on first day only. The alternate Ekadashi fasting, which is the second one, is suggested for Sanyasis, widows and for those who want Moksha. When alternate Ekadashi fasting is suggested for Smartha it coincides with Vaishnava Ekadashi fasting day.

Ekadashi fasting on both days is suggested for staunch devotees who seek for love and affection of Sri Hari Vishnu.
