Yogini Ekadashi fast story
According to legends, the city named Alkapuri was ruled by a king named Kuber. He was a great devotee of Lord Shiva. He used to offer flowers in the puja brought by Hema Mali. Hemamali had a beautiful wife named Vishalakshi. Once he brought flowers from Mansarovar and started spending time with his wife instead of going to worship. King Kuber kept waiting for him till noon. After waiting for a long time, he became very angry and ordered his servants to find Hema Mali.
When the servants returned, they said, “O king, he is busy enjoying with his wife.” Hearing this, the king immediately ordered his servants to call Hema Mali. He cursed the gardener to be separated from his wife and would suffer from leprosy in the land of death. Due to the curse of the king, he immediately fell on the earth and became a leper. He also had to face separation from his wife and faced many problems in the mortal world.
Due to the influence of devotion to Lord Shiva, his mind did not forget the deeds of his previous birth and he started moving towards the Himalayas. He went to an ashram on the way and met a saint. Hemmali reached him and fell at his feet. The saint heard the whole story of the gardener and decided to help him attain salvation.
He advised Hema to fast on the Yogini Ekadashi of the Krishna Paksha of the month of Ashada to get rid of all sins. Hema started observing the fast with proper rituals. As a result, he came back to his original form and started living happily with his wife.
