Indira Ekadashi 2022: History

According to legends, a mighty king named Indrasen ruled the kingdom of Mahishmati-Puri. King Indrasen was a devotee of Lord Vishnu. During a conversation with Narada Muni, it was revealed that the king’s father was in Lord Yamraj’s assembly.

Although he leads a religious life, he had to go to Yamlok because he broke the Ekadashi prematurely. Narada also said that his father wanted the king to observe Indira Ekadashi so that his father could go to heaven. Thus, quick sighting of Indira Ekadashi is believed to be auspicious, which attracts spiritual gains.
