The story related to Shatila Ekadashi belongs to ancient times. There was a lady Brahmin who used to live in a village. She was a great devotee of Lord Vishnu. So, she would do every Vrat-Puja wholeheartedly. She worshiped God with uttermost sincerity and devotion. The Brahmin lady would follow every ritual without compromising the situation. But she was a bit reluctant to give food to any beggar who would come to her door. One such time she continued fasting for one month. Her body become frail due to lack of proper nutrition; however, the body became pure due to persistent fast for the Lord Vishnu.
God became pleased to see her extreme devotion. She was a true possessor of Baikunth. Despite having salvation, she was unable to have peace. She did not do any charity of food during her fast and it was an obstacle on her way to go to Baikunth. First, she had to do charity of food and the lord Vishnu himself went her home to take alms. Lord Vishnu himself gave her a chance to follow her destiny as Baikunth. The old lady gave a lump of clay to the beggar. After the donation of the lump of clay every stuff related to food became clay of her house. Whatever she touched to eat became clay. It was a depressing moment for her. She started living in starvation and her body became emaciated due to lack of eating.
She worshiped Lord Vishnu to protect herself. The lord Vishnu came into her dream and told her that it was the result of her Karma. You donated a lump of clay to a starved beggar so you would be living a starving life due to the sin of Karma. she was a great devotee of the Lord Vishnu so he sought a solution for her to come out of the curse. He told her to donate food to everyone who is seeking food on her door. Apart from the donation of food and edibles he further told her to observe the Shattila Ekadashi Vrat. She did the Shattila Ekadashi Vrat with high religious faith and gained everything in return for this auspicious Vrat-Puja. She got the supreme position in Vishnuloka after her demise.
