Putrada Ekadashi Katha: History/Legend behind Putrada Ekadashi:
The story is recounted in the Bhavishya Purana narrated by the Lord Himself to King Yudhishthira. A childless King Mahijit of the Mahishmati Kingdom asked learned sages and saints for recommending a way to have a child. A highly learned sage Lomesh with his divine vision reminded the king about an event in his previous birth. The king in his previous birth was a mercantile who on a professional tour stopped by a pond to quench his thirst. A cow and her calf were there sipping water. The King scared them away and began to drink water himself. Because of this act, he was cursed to be issueless in the next birth. However, his good deeds caused his birth in a royal family. Later, Sage Lomesh asked the king and queen to please Lord Vishnu who is the giver of all benedictions in order to get rid of the curse or sin committed in the previous birth. The royal couple offered gold, jewels, clothes and money to the Brahmins in charity and strictly observed Putrada Ekadashi as directed by the sage. Later, the couple received a brilliant son who then carried on the kingdom after his parents’ death.
Significance of Putrada Ekadashi: Why a male child not Female?
‘Putrada’ is derived from the Sanskrit root ‘Putr’ meaning ‘son’ and ‘ada’ meaning ‘bestowing or giving’. The Vedas consider Lord Vishnu who in a sense is Brahma and Rudra Himself, to be the bestower of the benedictions. One may have a question regarding the significance of this Ekadashi and consider it partial toward female child. It is to be understood that it is celebrated by the married couple who have no son after marriage for a quite long time. In the ancient times, when all the daughters were given in marriage to the families worthy of worship, the aging parents who had only daughters needed a son for support as a son with his wife would then take care of their parents. Old homes never existed during Vedic period. Old men after ensuring the safety of their families usually renounced everything. Their wives either joined them in spiritual pursuits or remained at home under the care of her son and daughter-in-law. Therefore this Ekadashi should not be misunderstood to stress preference of a male child over the female one. Also, the Vedas prescribe rituals such as Shradha for sons to perform for the departed souls and their liberation.
