Pavitra Ekadashi 2016 - Sharavana Putrada Ekadashi in 2016

Pavitra Ekadashi 2016

The date for observing the most pious fast i.e. the Pavitra Ekadashi fast is on August 14 in 2016. Pavitra Ekadashi also known as Shravana Putrada Ekadashi is celebrated in the Hindu month of Shravana. The devotees who are highly religious keep fast on each and every Ekadashi. In all the Ekadshis, the Pavitra Ekadashi is highly yielding and fulfills a person's wish of having a child. The happiness of having a child is ultimate. A person lives for his family and a family is surely incomplete without a child. Therefore, due to such auspicious results Pavitra Ekadashi holds high religious significance.

People put their endless faith in the Pavitra Ekadashi and observe fast with no single trace of impurity in heart. The people who don't have any child are always advised to observe fast on this pious day. The fruitful effects of the Pavitra Ekadashi have been experienced by many people and they always pass on positive words for this particular Ekadashi. Blessing a couple with child is one of the blessings of the Pavitra Ekadashi. Faith of the people also states that people get rid of all the sins that they committed intentionally or unintentionally. A person is also glorified by only observing the fast of the Pavitra Ekadashi. The benefits a person can get from the fast of Pavitra Ekadashi are countless. The immense faith that people have on this festival is what makes it very significant.

Story Binding the Importance of Pavitra Ekadashi

While celebrating Pavitra Ekadashi in 2016, it is a good idea to know about the legend of this festival. The story of Pavitra Ekadashi marks the importance of this day and also shows how a person can achieve anything if he has true belief in his devotion. It is believed that Lord Krishna himself narrated this story. So, this reduces any chance of this story being impure. Lord Krishna told Yudhistir that there used to be a brave King, who was very kind and his people used to love him a lot. He was brave at the battle field and kind with the people of his kingdom. But, he was very unhappy from inside as he didn't have any child. He used to spend a lot of his time in worshipping Almighty so that he could cherish the happiness of being called a father. Even after praying continuously he kept on failing. Then a sage came forward and helped him.

The sage told the King that he is cursed to have no child due to a sin that he committed in his last birth. Upset by the words of sage, the King started to seek some sort of solution for his miseries. The great sage enlightened the King and guided him with the fast of Pavitra Ekadashi. Both the King and his wife observed the fast of Pavitra Ekadashi to receive the blessings of the God. The pious fast of the Pavitra Ekadashi made the King free of all his previous sins and the curse too. After the successful completion of fast, the King and Queen became parents in some time.

This miracle that was experienced by the King and Queen was only possible due to the fast they kept on Pavitra Ekadashi. One thing that must be noted is anything and everything is only possible if you have faith in you and the things you do. Almighty never likes to see his devotees in pain and to make them stronger he gives the difficult time. The ones, who don't lose their faith and keep on moving, survive the bad timing of their life successfully.

Significance of Pavitra Ekadashi

Pavitra Ekadashi is a day that purifies the soul of a person from within. This is done only when the person has no intention of doing wrong in his upcoming life. The blessings of a child and also the purification of soul is what Pavitra Ekadashi gets every year for the true devotees. If you have been looking for such a wonderful chance and have been seeking forgiveness for the wrong that you did then Pavitra Ekadashi is indeed the best day for you. Observe a fast with all your heart and feel the heaviness of soul leaving your body in no time. Make the best out of Pavitra Ekadashi in 2016.

Happy Pavitra Ekadashi 2016!
