Shattila Ekadashi 2024 fasting story

While observing this fast gives us physical purity and health, donating food grains, sesame seeds etc. increases our wealth. According to the legend, an old brahmin in a city fasted for a month, during which her body became very weak.

The brahmin did fast and worship but she never donated food items for the sake of the gods and brahmins. The brahmin has purified her body by fasting etc. but she has never donated food, without food it is difficult for the soul to be satisfied.

Once upon a time, Shri Hari Narayan disguised himself as a monk and reached the hut of his devotee brahmin to test her. The brahmin in the guise of Sri Hari gave a lump of clay in alms to the sage. After some time passed, she left her brahmin body and reached heaven.

During his lifetime, due to worship, recitation, fasting and the influence of a lump of clay, he got a house in heaven with a mango tree, but he found that house empty of other things.

There was not even food there, then the brahmin asked Lord Vishnu that I have worshiped you with many fasts etc., but still my house is empty of things, what is the reason for this? Shri Hari said that the answer to this will be given to you by the divine women.

After this, the divine women told the brahmin the importance of shattila ekadashi. That brahmin also fasted on shattila ekadashi as per the advice of the goddesses and due to its influence, her house was filled with blessings.

Since then shattila ekadashi fast started being observed. It is mentioned in the scriptures that no religious work is accomplished without donation. Whatever donation a person makes, he gets the same result after leaving his body.
