Significance & Importance of Putrada Ekadashi
Putrada Ekadashi is a highly auspicious day to please Lord Vishnu and seek blessings for your child’s well being.
Childless couples await for this special day so that they could be blessed with a son by the God. As per Hindu culture a son is supposed to conduct the last rites of parents and observe Shraddha after their death.
Besides providing the Santaan Sukh, Paush Putrda Ekadashi also provides other benefits like
- Get rid of sins committed in past and attain moksha
- Seek well being of your progeny
- Achieve a sharp intelligence
- Attain wealth and prosperity
Shri Krishna explains the glories of observing the Ekadashi Vratam in Narada Purana by saying :
Ashvamedha Sahasrani Rajasuya Shathanicha |
Ekadashi upavasasya kalanahithni shodashim ||
Meaning: Not even thousand Ashvamedha Yagas or hundred Raja Suya Yagas would match the fast on an Ekadashi Day.
