Mythological Legend Behind Dev Uthani Ekadashi

It is believed that only by listening to this story, a person attains mystical things and gets his/her wishes fulfilled. Once Goddess Lakshmi asked Lord Narayana, “Oh Lord, you wake up day and night and when you sleep, you sleep for millions of years. In such a situation, you destroy all the pastures, hence you should go off to sleep during a fixed time every year. This will also give me some time to rest.”

Hearing Goddess Lakshmi, Lord Narayan smiled and said, Devi, you are right. You don’t get any rest at all because of me. In such a situation, according to your saying, from now on I will sleep every year for four months during the rainy season. At that time, you and all other deities will get rest. ‘

‘This sleep of mine will be called Alpa Nidra (Short Sleep) and Pralay Kaleen Mahanidra. This sleep of mine will also prove to be the ultimate blessing for my devotees. In this time period, if devotees will serve me even during my sleep and then celebrate my awakening very enthusiastically will get majorly blessed by me.”
