Importance of Papankusha Ekadashi :
Arjun started saying that, O Jagadishwar! I heard an in depth description of Ashwin Krishna Ekadashi i.e. Indira Ekadashi. Now please kindly tell me about Ekadashi of Shukla Paksha of Ashwin / Quar month. what's the name of this Ekadashi and what's the law of its fast? what's the results of observing this fast? Please say all this legally.
Lord Krishna said: O Kuntinandan! The name of Ekadashi of Shukla Paksha of Ashwin month is Papankusha Ekadashi. By observing this fast, all sins are destroyed and the fasting person is part of Akshaya Punya.
Upon the arrival of Ashwin Shukla Ekadashi, one should revere Lord Vishnu to get the ideal organic product. Through this love, man accomplishes paradise. Hello Arjun! People who get the organic product through hard atonements, get that organic product upon the arrival of Ekadashi by saluting Lord Vishnu, who is dozing on Sheshnag in the Ksheer-Sagar and man doesn't need to endure the sufferings of Yama.
Man ought to be resolved to keep away from sins. Reflection of Lord Vishnu in any structure is relieving and vile, yet upon the arrival of Papankusha Ekadashi, the recognition of the Lord kirtan executes all afflictions and sins.
Papankusha Ekadashi Vrat Katha!
In old occasions, a fowler named Krodhana lived on Mount Vindhya, he was extremely savage. For his entire life was spent in savagery, plundering, drinking and unfair relationship with wrongdoing.
At the point when his last opportunity arrived, the couriers of Yamraj came to take the fowler and the Yamdoot said to the fowler that tomorrow is the latest day of your life, we will come to get you tomorrow. Hearing this, Fowler turned out to be scared and Maharishi arrived at Angira's ashram and Maharishi fell at Angira's feet and begun supplicating. O sage! I have submitted sins for my entire life.
Kindly reveal to me some way that every one of my wrongdoings will be destroyed and salvation will be achieved. On her solicitation, Maharishi Angira requested that her watch Ashwin Shukla's Papankusha Ekadashi quick.
As indicated by Maharishi Angira, that fowler did this quick and disposed of the apparent multitude of sins submitted and by the beauty of God, he went to Vishnu Lok by venerating this quick. At the point when the Yamadoot of Yamraj saw this marvel, he got back to Yamlok without taking Fowler.
