Yogini Ekadashi 2022: History And Significance

Once upon a time, in ancient India, Dhan Kuber ( the celestial god known for abundant wealth) had a gardener by the name Hem, who used to get Kubera, some immortal flowers from Manasarovar daily for worshipping Lord Shiva. Unfortunately, one day, Hem delayed getting him flowers for worship as Kuber was getting ready for the puja along with his wife.

So, he was cursed to be a leper by Kubera. Unable to bear this, Hem walked up to the ashram of Markandeya Rishi with great difficulty and pleaded with him for deliverance from this curse. The rishi advised him to perform yogini Ekadashi vrat as a result of which, Hem acquired a divine radiant form and left to the heavenly abode.

The puja and fasting for this Ekadashi commence on Dashami and continues through Dwadashi. Tamasic food should be given up and a sattvic diet should be consumed, this entire day. Indulging in physical pleasures is strictly proscribed. The devotee should encourage positive thoughts and pray for his well-being to Vishnu.

Following a saltless and grainless diet (wheat, barley, rice) should be the order of the day and remember to just drink enough water to hydrate yourself. The next day, at the hour of sunrise, the fast is broken and completed by lighting the lamp and distributing the prasad.

The concluding part of this Ekadashi requires you to donate whatever you wish, to poor brahmins. Never cut down a Peepal tree as it would have inauspicious results. The only way to ward off this sin is to perform the Yogini Ekadashi Vrat.
