Legend of Jaya Ekadashi

Once, Lord Shri Krishna narrated the legend of Jaya Ekadashi Vrat to Yudhisthira stating that a festival was going on at Nandanvan and all deities, sages and divine men were a part of it. Gandharvas were singing and female members were dancing to their tune in this festival. Among them, there was a Gandharva named Malyavan and a girl named Pushyavati. During the festival, she got attracted to Malyavan and tried to attract him by her dance. On seeing this, Malyavan was so much attracted that he lost his senses.

Both of them got emotional and expressed their feelings to each other. During this, Devraj Indra felt bad and took it as his insult. He got angry at Pushyavati and Malyavan and cursed them to be deprived of heaven and go to live on the earth and become vampires. 

Both of them got vampires because of the curse and started living on a tree at Himalaya Parvat bearing troubles. They had to face several challenges by being vampires. During this, the Ekadashi of Shukla Paksha fell in Magha month while they were going through the curse. They remained only on fruits and had to stay awake due the cold and so, they died.

However, they died during Jaya Ekadashi Vrat and therefore, they got relieved from the state of vampires and went to heaven. Devraj Indra got astonished to see both of them together and asked how they turned normal human beings. Then, Malyavan replied that the influence of Jaya Ekadashi Vrat has helped them in getting rid of being vampires. Devraj Indra god pleased on hearing this and said that they were the devotees of Jagadishwar and therefore, they could stay in heaven with peace.
