Vijaya Ekadashi Vrat in the Year 2022 will be Celebrated on Saturday, 26 February 2022
Vijaya Ekadashi occurs during the waning phase of the moon (Krishna Paksha) in February – March.
The greatness of this Ekadasi is mentioned in the Skanda Purana and observing Vijaya Ekadasi helps in removing all the guilt associated with sins committed and also helps in attaining victory.
It is believed that Lord Ram observed Vijaya Ekadashi Fast for crossing the ocean and reaching Lanka to defeat Ravana. The importance of Vijaya Ekadasi was narrated to Narada by Lord Brahma. Legend has it that when Lord Ram and his army – the Vanarasena – were searching for a means to cross the ocean to reach Lanka.
Lakshmana mentioned a great Sage who lived nearby and said that perhaps he might provide us with a solution.
