Importance of Amalaki Ekadashi

The Ekadashi that falls on the Shukla Paksha of Phalguna month is celebrated as Amalaki Ekadashi. Amalaki means Aamla, which is considered important according to scriptures and Ayurveda. As per the beliefs, when Lord Vishnu incarnated Lord Brahma during the creation of the universe, the Aamla tree also originated in the same moment. It is said that God resides in every part of the Aamla tree, and that is why it is also known as Adi Tree.

According to Padma Purana, a native attains the virtue equal to hundreds of Pilgrimages and the fruits of all the sacrifices (Yagya) by observing a fast on Amalaki Ekadashi. Such a devotee also attains salvation. On this day, people worship the Aamla tree and observe a fast.

In India, Amalaki Ekadashi is known by various other names like Aamla Ekadashi, Amalaka Ekadashi, Rangbhari Ekadashi, etc. It is called Rangbahri Ekadashi because, according to the mythological beliefs, Lord Shiva brought Goddess Parvati to Kashi after her Dwiragaman. The natives of Kashi celebrate this day with great enthusiasm as the welcome day of Goddess Parvati. People adorn Baba Vishvanath, and this day marks the beginning of the 6 days long Holi celebration in Kashi.

One day, King Chitrasen went out hunting deep into the forests. There he was surrendered by some bandits who started attacking him. To everyone’s surprise, the bandits’ attacks had no impact on the king as when they tried to use any weapon on him, it turned into flowers. The number of bandits started to increase gradually, and the king fainted and fell on the ground due to the attacks. A divine power emerged from the king’s body that killed all the bandits then entered back into his body after that.
