Significance of Apara Ekadashi

Apara Ekadashi fast will be observed on 1st June, 2016 i.e Krishna Paksha of Jyeshtha month (which falls in june of Hindu calendar) This fast is believed to give auspicious and divine results. It also frees you from all kinds of sins. By observing this fast, a person becomes rich and wealthy. Such a person is also appreciated and receives fame…

According to the Hindu Scriptures, a person gets the same merits by observing Apara Ekadashi fast as he receives by taking a bath in the Ganges during the Kartik month. The importance of Apara ekadashi is the same as taking a bath in holy river Gomti, visiting Sri Kedarnath, staying in Badri Ashram or taking a holy dip in Kurukshetra during the solar eclipse.

The merits which one gets by observing Apara ekadashi fast are equivalent to those blessed by Yajnas or donating horses, elephants, gold etc. Even donating cows gives the same merits as fasting on Apara ekadashi. Apara ekadashi fast is a ray of light amidst the darkness of your sins. Therefore, a person observing this fast is blessed in life..

 Story Behind Apara Ekadashi 

A story has been mentioned about Apara Ekadashi in the religious scriptures. According to this story, there was a King named Mahidhwaj. His younger brother, Bajradhwaj, was not religious and was cunning. Bajradhwaj did not like his elder brother and was jealous of him. One night, he killed the King and buried his body beneath a Pipal tree..
The spirit of the King started residing on the Pipal tree.  The people in the surrounding places were terrified of this. One day, a saint named Dhaumya was passing by and talked to the restless spirit. He preached the spirit by his wisdom talk  and the spirit got down from the tree. The saint asked the King’s spirit to observe a fast on Apara Ekadashi in order to rest in peace. Hence, the King fasted and  as a result, attained liberation…

Significance/ Importance Of Pilgrimage

India is popularly known as the Land of pilgrimages; meaning that the land , where taking every step on , one feels an increase in energy, devotion & love towards God, the thought process gets purified with the sight of God & Saints. Additionally, our Scriptures have sung infinite glory of pilgrimages.

Also, equally true is the fact, that, one who takes holy bath in the pilgrimage of truth, wisdom, forgiveness, meditation & spirituality and the one who while observing celibacy bathes in the pilgrimage of self control, it is said, that natural pilgrimage is built , where such person resides.

That’s why a place, where Saints reside, becomes a pilgrimage. That part of soil , which they step on, becomes holy and worth applying on our forehead which enriches our fortune.

Just like we need to take bath to clean our body and soap to clean dirty clothes, similarly, to cleanse our old bad habits & our innerself, we need to serve the saints, listen to their spiritual discourses, observe fasts and do naam japa(remembering God’s name). One who is truly blessed with the company of such enlightened Saints, gets the merits of bathing in such holy pilgrimages.
