Putrada Ekadashi : Associated Legends 

Long time ago, there used to be a king named Suketu in Bhadravati city. His wife’s name was Shaivya. Despite everything in their lives, both husband and wife started leading an unhappy life due to the lack of children. One day with a heavy heart, the king and queen handed over the palace to the minister and went to the forest themselves. During this, the thought of committing suicide also started lingering in their mind, but then the king realized that there is no bigger sin in this world than suicide. Then suddenly he started hearing the voices of the Vedas and then the king and queen went on moving in the same direction from where he was getting the voices of the Vedas.

While walking some distance, he met a sage. The royal couple asked whom you are worshiping, then the monk told them to consider fasting on Putrada Ekadashi. It was here that they came to know the importance of Putrada Ekadashi. After this, both of them fasted for the next Putrada Ekadashi and due to this, they got a child. It is said that from then onwards the importance of Putrada Ekadashi started being considered. In such a situation, any childless couple who observes fast on this day with devotion and grace gets blessed with a child.
