As per a prevalent mythological legend, there used to be a beautiful garden name Chaitrath during the Puratan yoga. In this particular lawn, the son of Saint Chayvan, Medhavi used to sit for meditation. It was also seen that Devraj Indra, the king of Heaven used to relax here along with the nymphs and his fellow deities.

On one hand, Medhavi used to be an avid worshipper of Lord Shiva, while the nymphs followed Kamdev (the lord of passion and sensuality) with all their might. During a particular frame of time, Kamdev ordered a nymph named Manjughosha to break Medhavi’s concentration. Manjughosha, who possessed great amount of beauty and dazzle ultimately succeeded in breaking the concentration of Medhavi with her beautiful songs, dances as well as beauty.

Saint Medhavi was taken aback and mesmerized because of her beauty. Very shortly, both of them decided to love together and hence they spent quite a few years together. One fine day when Manjughosha asked for Medhavi’s permission to go back to her world, he realized his mistake, that he had committed the grave crime of giving up on his ascetic life and austerity. This self realisation triggered his anger and he cursed Manjughosha to turn into a witch.

When Manjughosha heard about this, she fell on his knees and asked him for a way out of this curse. Medhavi was heartbroken after hearing Manjughosha’s plea and he asked her to observe the Papamochani Ekadashi and said that by keeping this fast all of her sins will be eradicated and she will turn into a nymph once again. But once he narrated all of this to his father Chyavan he said that you too have earned you fair share of sins and guilts, which is why now it will be necessary for you to observe the same Papmochani Ekadashi fast.
