Along with this, it is also believed that during the Chaturmas period which is (4 months), the ascetics do not travel, however, they prefer to stay and do penance in the same place. Only the Braj Yatra can be done in this period as during the Chaturmas all the pilgrimages on earth come and stay in Braj.

Ashadhi Ekadashi Mythology/ Katha

According to the legend, there was a Chakravarti emperor known with the name of Mandhata who was ruling in Satyuga. During his reign, the people lived happily. Once upon a time, there was no rain in the state for three consecutive years, due to which the state was scarce. The people became very disturbed and there was a state of panic all around. Looking at such conditions, the king was very sad and went to the forest to find the solution/ remedy. While wandering in the forest, he reached the ashram of Rishi Angira. The king there told all the matters of concern to the Angira rishi and said if you go to your kingdom and observe Devashayani Ekadashi fast with all your will and true devotion then there will be definite chances of rain in the state. Following the orders of Rishi Angira, the king came back to his kingdom and did the same remedy. Due to this, there was the rain that came in the whole state, and that state was filled with money and grains. Since then there is a huge significance attached to observing fast on this day.
