Significance of Mohini Ekadashi (मोहिनी एकादशी का महत्व)
According to the legend, when the (समुद्र मंथन) churning of the ocean took place, after receiving the nectar, there was a ruckus between the gods and the demons. The gods could not defeat the Asuras (असुरों) on the strength, so Lord Vishnu took the form of a Mohini and trapped the Asuras in the trap of his illusion and made them drink all the nectar from which the gods attained immortality. It is believed that the importance of Mohini Ekadashi was first explained by Lord Krishna to King Yudhisthira (राजा युधिष्ठिर) and Saint Vashishta (संत वशिष्ठ) to Lord Rama. If a person observes the Mohini Ekadashi fast with utmost dedication and devotion, as a result he gets many ‘virtue’ or ‘good deeds’ (पुण्य या अच्छे कर्म). The merits obtained are equal to those obtained by donating a thousand crows (पुण्य एक हजार गायों का दान), visiting pilgrimage (तीर्थों की यात्रा) and performing yagnas (यज्ञों). Devotees become free from the cycle of birth and rebirth and attain salvation (जन्म और पुनर्जन्म के चक्र). By worshiping on this holy day, all sins are destroyed and salvation is attained after death.
