पापमोचनी एकादशी व्रत से होगा पापों का नाश, पढ़ें पौराणिक कथा

* चैत्र कृष्ण एकादशी की फलदायिनी कथा 

धर्मराज युधिष्‍ठिर बोले- हे जनार्दन! चैत्र मास के कृष्ण पक्ष की एकादशी का क्या नाम है तथा उसकी विधि क्या है? कृपा करके आप मुझे बताइए।
श्री भगवान बोले,  हे राजन् – चैत्र मास के कृष्ण पक्ष की एकादशी का नाम पापमोचनी एकादशी है। इसके व्रत के प्रभाव से मनुष्‍य के सभी होता हैं। यह सब व्रतों से उत्तम व्रत है। इस पापमोचनी एकादशी के महात्म्य के श्रवण व पठन से समस्त पाप नाश को प्राप्त हो जाते हैं।
एक समय देवर्षि नारदजी ने जगत् पिता ब्रह्माजी से कहा, महाराज! आप मुझसे चैत्र मास के कृष्ण पक्ष की एकादशी विधान कहिए।
ब्रह्माजी कहने लगे कि- हे नारद! चैत्र मास की कृष्ण पक्ष की एकादशी पापमोचनी एकादशी के रूप में मनाई जाती है। इस दिन भगवान विष्णु का पूजन किया जाता हैं। इसकी कथा के अनुसार प्राचीन समय में चित्ररथ नामक एक रमणिक वन था। इस वन में देवराज इन्द्र गंधर्व कन्याओं तथा देवताओं सहित स्वच्छंद विहार करते थे।
एक बार मेधावी नामक ऋषि भी वहां पर तपस्या कर रहे थे। वे ऋषि शिव उपासक तथा अप्सराएं शिव द्रोहिणी अनंग दासी (अनुचरी) थी। एक बार कामदेव ने मुनि का तप भंग करने के लिए उनके पास मंजुघोषा नामक अप्सरा को भेजा। युवावस्था वाले मुनि अप्सरा के हाव भाव, नृत्य, गीत तथा कटाक्षों पर काम मोहित हो गए। रति-क्रीडा करते हुए 57 वर्ष व्यतीत हो गए।
एक दिन मंजुघोषा ने देवलोक जाने की आज्ञा मांगी। उसके द्वारा आज्ञा मांगने पर मुनि को भान आया और उन्हें आत्मज्ञान हुआ कि मुझे रसातल में पहुंचाने का एकमात्र कारण अप्सरा मंजुघोषा ही हैं। क्रोधित होकर उन्होंने मंजुघोषा को पिशाचनी होने का श्राप दे दिया।
श्राप सुनकर मंजुघोषा ने कांपते हुए ऋषि से मुक्ति का उपाय पूछा। तब मुनिश्री ने पापमोचनी एकादशी का व्रत रखने को कहा और अप्सरा को मुक्ति का उपाय बताकर पिता च्यवन के आश्रम में चले गए। पुत्र के मुख से श्राप देने की बात सुनकर च्यवन ऋषि ने पुत्र की घोर निन्दा की तथा उन्हें पापमोचनी चैत्र कृष्ण एकादशी का व्रत करने की आज्ञा दी। व्रत के प्रभाव से मंजुघोष अप्सरा पिशाचनी देह से मुक्त होकर देवलोक चली गई।
अत: हे नारद! जो कोई मनुष्य विधिपूर्वक इस व्रत को करेगा, उसके सारों पापों की मुक्ति होना निश्चित है और जो कोई इस व्रत के महात्म्य को पढ़ता और सुनता है उसे सारे संकटों से मुक्ति मिल जाती है।

EKADASHI VRAT, EKADASI UPVAAS – EKADASHI AS VAISHNAVI SHAKTI OF LORD VISHNU

Hinduism is often described as a religion of fasts, feasts and festivals. Fasting a Hindu tradition to please God, by controlling and curbing one’s desires. Fasts most commonly known as Upvaas or Vrat are the days when devotees refrain themselves from food or water. Fasts of different Gods or Goddesses are observed on particular days. These stories have given solace to millions of people from time immemorial. It would be worthwhile to explain as to how a particular day of the week was allotted to particular star or planet.

Lord Shri Hari Vishnu

Importance

All of vartas and upvasa the Ekadashi vrat is very important & beneficial for all householders. The purpose of fasting is to experience peace & bliss. Eating less enables the mind & body to function more effectively. Ekadashi or Ekadasi, is the eleventh lunar day of the shukla (bright) or krishna (dark) paksha (fortnight) of every lunar month in the Hindu calendar (Panchang). In Hinduism and Jainism it is considered a spiritually beneficial day. Scriptures recommend observing an ideally waterless fast from sunset on the day before Ekadashi to 48 minutes after sunrise on the day following Ekadashi.

Rules for Fasting

One should not eat any cereals like rice, pulses, wheat etc. and salt. If possible, one should stay on water. Drinking luke warm water or lemon-sugar water is very good as it cleanses the hidden undigested food in the body. If one feels hungry, then one can take milk or fruit. Fruit should not be eaten with milk like therefore no strawberry shake, mango shake, chickoo shake etc. Also Banana is not recommended on this day since it is heavy to digest. One should think that he/she is keeping this vrat to please God and to progress further in their devotion to God. One should observe self-control. One should do more of maun-japa (repeating the name of God in mind) in the day time. One should do more of Dhyan & Bhajan by keeping awake for a longer time in the night.

Legend about Ekadashi

Acording to Hindu scriptures long ago, when the whole universe was filled with a great ocean, Vishnu was sleeping on his bed of Adisesha, floating in the middle of the ocean. From his ear wax, two Asuras named Madhu and Kaitabha were formed. They fed on the ocean-water, and grew strong.

By meditating on beeja mantra they got boon from Adi ParaShakti that they will only at their on wish. After that they became arrogant with a sense of their own importance. They came upon Lord Brahma, who was doing his task of creation, sitting on a seat made from a lotus. They attacked Lord Brahma for his seat. Lord Brahma knew that he was no match for these warriors, so He fled to the abode of the Lord and started praying to Lord Vishnu. Despite His prayers, Lord Vishnu was still asleep. Then Lord Brahma pray to Supreme Goddess who was in form of Sleep in the eyes of Vishnu as Yoganidra. By the grace of Devi Maa, Lord Vishnu awoke. Lord Brahma told him about te terror of both asuras & to save Him from them.

Lord Vishnu Laxmi and Brahma

Lord Vishnu started fighting them & this great battle stretched for five thousand years. Vishnu was surprised at his inability to destroy these demons. He then divined that these two Asuras have obtained the boon of invincibility from Devi. While he was still battling them, he started to pray to Devi, to show a way to slay these Asuras.

Devi appeared in the heavens above the battleground. Fighting with two hands, Vishnu joined his other two hands in worship for the eternal Goddess. He pray her to show a way to overcome these Asuras, who have become strong as a consequence of Devi’s boon.

Maa Vaishnavi as Ekadashi Devi

After hearing Lord Vishnu’s prayer, Devi cast a look mixed with false-affection in for of Dark-Skinned Bhadra Kali, on the two demons, causing their baser instincts to awaken. The Asuras fell under the spell of Devi.

At that point Lord Vishnu offered then a boon, but completely befuddled by Devi’s gaze, the Asuras laughed outright at this proposal. In a tone of derision, they said they will grant a boon to Vishnu because he is going to be defeated by both of them. This was the opening that Vishnu was waiting for & he tricked them that He want both of them Killed by His hand. Vishnu took up his Vishwa-roopa & then placed the two Asuras on his massive thighs and beheaded them with his Sudarsana-Chakra. From the body fat of the dead demons, land was formed. Since it was formed from an unclean source, soil is not fit for consumption.

After they both killed Devi asked Lord Vishnu that She is came in form as His Vaishnavi Shakti on Ekadashi Tithi. What will be the importance of this day. At this Lord Vishnu blessed this day as His own day of worship. He told Devi that She is worshiped as Ekadashi Devi and the people who perform fasts on this day will get a great devotion & blessing form Devi & Himself also. Devi Ekadshi also Know as Bhadra-Kali or Vaishnavi.

Ekadashi Vrat Udyapan

उद्यापन एकादशियों का व्रत करने के पश्चात किया जाता है। बिना उद्यापन किए कोई व्रत सिद्ध नहीं होता, अतः नियमित रूप से एकादशियों का व्रत करने वालों को किसी विद्वान ब्राह्मण की देख-रेख में उद्यापन अवश्य करना चाहिए। एकादशी व्रतों का उद्यापन करते समय विष्णु की विशेष रूप से पूजा-आराधना तो की ही जाती है, हवन भी अनिवार्य रूप से किया जाता है। उद्यापन वाले दिन व्रतधारक को अपने जीवन-साथी सहित स्नानादि करके स्वच्छ, सफेद वस्त्र धारण करने चाहिए। पूजा-स्थल को सुंदर रूप से सजाकर और सभी पूजन सामग्री निकट रखकर विष्णु और लक्ष्मीजी की षोडशोपचार आराधना की जाती है। पवित्रीकरण, भूतशुद्धि और शांति पाठ के बाद गणेशपूजन आदि की सभी क्रियाएं की जाती हैं।

एकादशी व्रतोद्यापन पूजा में कलश स्थापना हेतु तांबे के कलश में चावल भरकर रखने का शास्त्रीय विधान है। अष्टदल कमल बनाकर विष्णु और लक्ष्मीजी का ध्यान तथा आह्वान तो किया ही जाता है, कृष्ण, श्रीराम, अग्नि, इंद्र, प्रजापति, विश्वदेवों, ब्रह्माजी आदि का भी आह्वान किया जाता है। इसके पश्चात मंत्रों का स्तवन करते हुए एक-एक करके भगवान को सभी सेवाएं और वस्तुएं अर्पित की जाती हैं और इसके बाद हवन किया जाता है। वास्तव में ये सभी कार्य तो पूजन कराने वाला आचार्य अथवा ब्राह्मण ही करता है, आप तो भक्तिपूर्वक पण्डितजी द्वारा बतलाए जाने वाली क्रियाएं ही करेंगे। भगवान की पूजा-आराधना और हवन में कितनी वस्तुओं का और कितनी-कितनी मात्राओं में प्रयोग किया जाए यह पूरी तरह आपकी श्रद्धा और सामर्थ्य पर निर्भर करेगा। शास्त्रीय विधान तो भगवान की स्वर्ण प्रतिमा, स्वर्ण आभूषणों, स्वर्ण सिंहासन, छत्र, चमर, पंचरत्न, दर्जनों मेवों, अनेक प्रकार के अनाजों और फलों आदि के प्रयोग का है, जबकि सभी पूजन सामग्रियों का प्रयोग तो किया जाएगा।

हवन के बाद आचार्य को पूजा में प्रयुक्त सभी वस्तुएं, पांचो कपड़े, जूते, छाता, पांच बर्तन और पलंग सहित सभी बिस्तर तथा धरेलू उपयोग की अनेक वस्तुएं देने का भी शास्त्रीय विधान है। जहां तक व्यावहारिकता का प्रश्न है, कितने ब्राह्मणों को भोजन कराया जाए और आचार्य एवं अन्य ब्राह्मणों को कौन-कौन सी वस्तुएं दान दी जाएं, इसका महत्त्व तो है ही, मुख्य महत्त्व आपकी भावना और श्रद्धा का है।
