Mythology related to Indira Ekadashi fast

According to the legend, in ancient times a king named Indrasen ruled in the city of Mahishmati. He was a great devotee of King Vishnu. One day when the king was sitting in his meeting, Maharishi Narada came to his meeting. The sage told the king that all your organs are efficient and do you worship Vishnu, don’t you? Hearing all this, the king said that everything is fine.

I saw your father sleeping near Yamraj in Yamlok, he gave a message asking my son to observe Ekadashi fast. Hearing this, the king became bewildered and asked Narada to tell me the method of fasting. Narad said that on the day of Dashami, after bathing in the river, perform Shradh for the ancestors and on Ekadashi worship the Lord by eating fruits. By doing this your problem will go away.

At the same time, Naradji started saying that if you fast on Ekadashi without laziness by this method, your father will definitely go to heaven. Saying this Naradji left. According to the legend of Naradji, when the king fasted with his brothers and slaves, flowers rained from the sky and that king’s father climbed Garuda and went to Vishnuloka. King Indrasen also went to heaven after giving his son the kingdom due to the effect of fasting on Ekadashi.
