Once there was a great king by the name of Vaikhanasa ruled the kingdom of champakanagaram. He was a pious and great king who ruled the kingdom according to Dharma. He looked after the people of his kingdom as his own children. All the people in his kingdom were happy. There was nothing more king Vaikhanasa would have asked for.

Once Vaikhanasa had a dream in which he saw that his father was being tortured in the hell ruthlessly. The father of the king was shouting for help and was crying loud in pain. He was seeing Vaikhanasa and was asking to help him to get rid of the punishments and hell.

The next day King Vaikhanasa summoned the Brahmins in the country and explained the dream he had. He also asked them to advise if it was true and if so what has to be done to help his father, so that he can be removed from hell.

The Brahmins replied that, there was only one person on the Earth who could clearly explain the dream and he was Parvata Muni, who stays in the mountains nearby the city. The Brahmins advised the king to visit Parvata Muni and seek his guidance.

King Vaikhanasa, immediately left for the mountains. He met the sage Parvata and prayed him. Please with his prayer sage Parvata asked the reason for which Vaikhanasa has come to see him. The king explained the whole dream and asked sage Parvata to direct him.

Sage Parvata shut his eyes and saw the reason for which the father of King Vaikhanasa was being subjected to severe punishments in hell. He explained the king that, his father once had sex with a women who was in her menstruation period. The kings father did not heed to the pleading of the women and forcibly used her. This was the reason that the father of the king was subjected to such severe punishments in hell.

King Vaikhanasa prayed to sage Parvata and asked him to provide a solution so that he can get rid of the suffering of his father. Sage Parvata advised the king that he could free his father from hell only by transferring the virtue that is obtained by observing the Ekadasi Vrat on Margasira Sukla Paksha Ekadasi or Vaikunta Ekadasi or Mukkoti Ekadasi or Mokshada Ekadasi.

Sage Parvata also told the king the procedure to observe the Vaikunta Ekadasi Vrat. King Vaikhanasa observed the Vaikunta Ekadasi vrat and transferred the virtue thus obtained to his father who was taken to Vishnu loka or Vaikunta.

Such is the power of observing the Ekadasi Vrat on Vaikunta Ekadasi. The process of observing the Ekadasi Vrat can be read at  “Ekadashi Vrat Vidhanam”.
