Kamla Ekadashi - Sunday 12th July
Kamla Ekadashi - Chaitra Sud Ekadashi
King Yudhishthir once asked Bhagwan Shree Krishna, "O Vaasudev! I bow down to You. Please tell me about the Ekadashi which falls in the Sud fortnight of the month of Chaitra."
Bhagwan Shree Krishna replied, "O king! I shall reiterate the Katha of significance of this Ekadashi which Rishi Vashishtha had narrated to King Dilip in bygone era. Listen to it attentively."
Sage Vashishtha said, "O King Dilip! The Ekadashi falling in the bright fortnight of Chaitra is called 'Kamla Ekadashi'. Observing this Ekadashi not only washes away one's sins but also fulfils his desire to have a son.
