Shattila Ekadashi story

According to religious belief, once Narada Muni reached Vaikuntha, the abode of Lord Vishnu. There he asked Lord Vishnu about the importance of Shattila Ekadashi fast. On the request of Narad ji, Lord Vishnu told that in ancient times, a Brahmin's wife lived on earth. Her husband had died. She was a great devotee of mine and used to worship me with devotion. Once he worshiped me by fasting for a month. Due to the effect of fasting, her body got purified but she never donated food for the sake of Brahmins and Gods, hence I thought that this woman would remain unsatisfied even after living in Vaikuntha, so one day I myself went to her to beg for alms. When I begged him for alms, he picked up a lump of clay and placed it on my hands. I took that mass and returned to my abode. After some time she left her body and came to my world.

Here he found a hut and a mango tree. Seeing the empty hut, she came to me in fear and said, I am a pious person, then why did I get an empty hut? Then I told him that this happened due to not donating food and giving me a lump of mud. I then told him that when the deities come to meet you, you should open your door only until they tell you the rules for fasting on Shattila Ekadashi. The woman did the same and observed the fast of Shattila Ekadashi following the methods that Devkanya had told her. Due to the effect of fasting his hut was filled with food and money. Therefore, O Narad, consider this to be true that the person who observes fast on this Ekadashi and donates sesame seeds and food grains, attains liberation and prosperity.
