Vijaya Ekadashi Vrat Katha
As the sacrosanct name indicates, Vijaya Ekadashi is the day that connotes the notion of triumph. Those people who aspire to be triumphant in every realm of their life, perceive this Vrat as a medium and plead the luminous blessing of Lord Vishnu. The day also signifies, it emancipates the wrongdoings of the observance and assists them to enlighten their earthly abode. Mythology also says, one of the Dwara Palas (gatekeepers) of Lord Vishnu’s heavenly abode; Vaikuntha is named Vijaya. He looks out Vaikuntha along with his sibling Jaya.
Significance of Vijaya Ekadashi
Believers attend the Ekadashi Vrat with sheer dedication and plead to Lord Vishnu for an ecstatic life on the earth, including all the material essence aspects of living. They also wish to ensure a niche for themselves in Vaikuntha Dham after their transitory voyage comes to an end, on this earth. Therefore, the utmost aim of celebrating the Ekadashi vrat is to obtain Moksha (redemption from the brutal orbit of birth, life, and death) after getting emancipated from the evils that one may have perpetrated in a lifetime.
Hence, the motive of the Ekadashi Vrat (from the moral outlook) accentuates the sanctification of beliefs, righteousness of psyche, and liberation from the consequences of one’s misdeeds.
Rituals associated with Vijaya Ekadashi
