Vijaya Ekadashi Significance and Story

The historical story tales add significance to the rituals and festivals, making them more attractive. So, the importance of Vijaya Ekadashi is also attached to the story of Lord Rama defeating the demon Ravana to save his wife, Sita, along with his brother Lord Laxman and Varnar Sena (group of monkeys). The story of Vijaya Ekadashi is from the old Hindu text Skanda Purana, which Lord Krishna narrates to Yudhistira.

Moreover, the story was also told to Narad Muni by Lord Brahma and is all based on the famous holy book Ramayana. The story about Vijaya Ekadashi revolves around when Lord Ram went to Lanka to save his wife. While Ravana took Sita away, Jayatu (the vulture) tried to rescue Sita but got injured miserably. Moreover, when Jatayu was about to die, he narrated the story of Ravana taking Sita away.

Furthermore, the king of monkeys, Sugriva, was willing to help Lord Rama to find Sita. However, Lord Hanuman was sent to Lanka to see if he could find Sita. Lord Hanuman found Sita’s ring in the Vatika garden, which proved that Sita was in Lanka and was carried off by Ravana. 

However, now that it was assured that Sita was in Lanka, they had to cross the ocean to reach Lanka, but the ocean was deep, and it would be dangerous to cross the ocean. Lord Rama asked his brother Laxman for help or guidance in that challenging situation. 

On the spur of the moment, Laxman visited a sage named Bakadalbhya, who lived in a nearby Ashram. The sage was surprised to see Lord Rama asking for help, who himself was an Avatar of Lord Vishnu. They explained the situation to sage Bakadahbhya. On hearing that, the sage suggested they observe the Vijaya Ekadashi vrat and perform the rituals by which they can cross the ocean and save Sita. They followed all the rituals of Vijaya Ekadashi that gave them the strength and courage to cross the ocean and bring back Sita from Lanka. So, that was the story behind celebrating Vijaya Ekadashi wishes. It helps you to get through difficult situations and obstacles.
