Saphala Ekadashi

 Saphala Ekadashi

The word “Safala” or “Saphala” means “success”. Hence, Saphala Ekadashi is observed to bring in the success in the life of the worshipper. Saphala Ekadasi is celebrated during the waning phase of Krishna Paksha on Ekadashi Tithi in the Hindu Paush month. The day of this Ekadashi is devoted to Deity Vishnu. It is believed that if a worshipper observes Saphala Ekadashi Vrat (Fast) on this day, he/she is able to achieve success in life. The Saphala Ekadashi is also famous as Pausha-Krishna Ekadasi.

Significance Of Saphala Ekadashi

Ekadashi is an auspicious day dedicated to Lord Vishnu. Ekadashi mainly falls on the 11th day of every lunar fortnight in the Hindu calendar. The significance of this Ekadashi was described by Lord Krishna to Yudhishtira. The importance of Saphala Ekadashi is also mentioned in the Brahmanda Purana. Saphala Ekadashi Vrat is believed to help in cleaning the sins committed by the devotees and it also opens the door of success in earthly life.

Story of Safala Ekadashi

Legend says, that there was Lumbaka, a prince, who used to question the supremacy of Deity Vishnu. Due to this nature, he got expelled by the King from his kingdom. Even though, he did not change his nature and he continued committing the sins and started disturbing common men and robbed their wealth. In order to satisfy his hunger, he also killed so many innocent animals.

Once, on the day of Paush on Ekadashi Tithi, he fell ill and unknowingly observed the fast (vrat) throughout the day. Next day, Lumbaka felt better and later, he realized Lord Vishnu had cured him with his blessings. Since then, Safala Ekadashi came into being.

Even Lord Krishna has also described the importance of this Ekadashi in the following words:

अश्वमेधसहस्राणि राजसूयशतानि च । एकादश्युपवासस्य कलां नार्हन्ति शोडशीम् ।।
