Saphala Ekadashi Vrata Katha
According to the legend, there was a king named Mahishmat, he had five sons in Champavati city. The elder son was characterless and bash the gods. Carnivores and other evils had also entered into him, and thus the king and his brothers named him Lumpak and drive him out of the kingdom. Then he robbed his own city. One day he was caught by soldiers stealing. Then he started living under a peepal in the forest. On the 10th day of the Krishna Paksha of Paush, he became lifeless due to cold. The next day he regained consciousness. Then he returned with the fruit from the forest and placing all the fruits in the root of the Peepal tree, he said, “Lord Vishnu should be pleased with these fruits. He got the blessing of the kingdom and the son by the influence of Safala Ekadashi and the Lord Vishnu. This turned Lumbhak’s mind to good and then his father granted him the kingdom and all his responsibilities. He had a son named Manojna, who later handed over the kingdom, and was successful in attaining salvation by attaching himself to Vishnu Bhajan.
