Yogini Ekadashi Story

There is an interesting story in the Holy scriptures that attests the importance of Yogini Ekadashi. Kuber, the Lord of Wealth, ruled over the empire of Alkapuri. He was an ardent devotee of Lord Shiva and diligently performed Puja rituals in honor of the deity. He had appointed a gardener named Hemamali and gave him the task of collecting and giving him flowers for his religious practices. But one fine day Hemamali who got captivated by the beauty of his wife Swarupavati, skipped his duties and became deeply engrossed in making merry with her.  An anxious Kuber was unable to commence his Puja rituals and summoned his soldiers to discover the reason for the delay. His anxiety soon turned into fury when he learnt about the truth of the whole incident. In a fit of rage, he cursed Hemamali of contacting leprosy and bear the pain of separation from his wife as a punishment for neglecting his duty. The curse immediately turned the gardener into a leper and got him separated from his wife. In agony and despair, he wandered through dense forests finally  reaching the Himalayan caves ,where he encountered Rishi Markandeya, the author of the Mahamrityunjay Mantra. Seeing the Rishi engrossed in deep penance and meditation, Hemamali fell to his feet. He pleaded with the Rishi to get him out of his miserable state. The kind-hearted sage consoled him and enjoined him to perform the Yogini Ekadashi Vrat to get back his lost health and wife. Hemamali rigorously observed the Ekadashi fast and by the grace of Lord Vishnu, he was bestowed with a sound and healthy body and was also united with his estranged wife.
