Vijaya Ekadashi Puja Vrat Story
There is a religious story behind why Vijaya Ekadashi is celebrated. In ancient times, when Lord Rama's wife Sita was kidnapped by Ravana and taken to Lanka, then Rama reached the shore of the sea in search of Sita. Lord Rama wanted to go across the sea with his army to Lanka so that he could free Mother Sita from the bondage of Ravana. But it was not that easy because the biggest obstacle in their way was the vast sea which was spreading for more than 100 km and was roaring fiercely. Lord Rama worshiped the ocean for 3 days but he did not find any solution. All army seemed to be impossible to reach Lanka by crossing the sea. Then some sages told Lord Rama about Vijaya Ekadashi which paves all the inaccessible and difficult paths. Lord Rama worshiped Lord Vishnu with all the rituals with close meditation. His fast was over. According to the ancient legend, it is believed that due to the effect of Vijaya Ekadashi, Lord Rama could cross the sea with his army and defeat Ravana. The work which seemed very difficult and impossible became easy due to the effect of Vijaya Ekadashi. Since then people worship Lord Shri Hari with great devotion on the auspicious day of Vijaya Ekadashi and get the blessings of Lord Vishnu by observing fast. Lord Shri Ram celebrated Vijaya Ekadashi on Krishna Paksha of Phagun month and since then this Ekadashi started being celebrated on Krishna Paksha of Phagun month.
On the day of Vijaya Ekadashi, devotees should proceed towards worship and fasting only after becoming clean and pure. Lord Vishnu likes the yellow color very much, so he should be worshiped with yellow flowers. If you want a better effect of Vijaya Ekadashi, then you must donate food and drink to the people. You should start the worship after making an altar and setting an earthen pot on it. It is considered very auspicious. Before joining the puja, a resolution of the fast has to be taken and the puja is started. The story of Vijaya Ekadashi is told. Any sweet which is made of milk can be offered to Lord Vishnu in Bhog. Worship of Lord Vishnu is considered incomplete without Tulsi leaves, hence lamps are lit in front of the Tulsi plant in the evening. If you worship Lord Vishnu as well as Goddess Lakshmi, then you never have to face poverty in life.
Aarti of God must be done before eating fruit. Devotees should always chant the mantras of Vishnu Sahasranama and Om Namo Vasudevaya. You can also get bhajan kirtan done according to your capacity. Donating to the needy and providing them food comes under the category of charity. Devotees should not lack in this. Understanding that the world is absorbed in God and feeding and giving charity to people is dedicated to God himself. The festival of Vijaya Ekadashi should be celebrated with great pomp and gaiety.
