According to the mythical beliefs, once Brahma ji told a story to Narad Muni by stating the importance of this Ekadashi. This story was based on the time of Satya Yuga. A king named Mandhata ruled during the Satya Yuga. The kingdom of Mandhata was very happy and there were no shortage of any kind. The subjects were also very happy with the king but there was a time when the happiness of this state was eclipsed. The state had to face a severe famine. The king tried to find reasons for this famine but he couldn't find it out. Due to the increase in feminine he started reducing religious activities like Charity Havan and Puja. But this made the situation even worse. But when the king could not find anything and till the end he talked of finding a solution to this problem himself and with this thought he left for the forest. The king had a question in his mind which was repeatedly troubling him that God Was punishing the entire kingdom for His fault. He reached the ashram of Angira Rishi the son of Brahma looking for the solution. That King told his mystery to the sage while introducing himself. The sage then asked the king to observe the fast of Devshayani Ekadashi. The king kept the fast by following all the rules and guidelines .As a result the happiness of the kingdom was returned and the Kingdom became happy and prosperous again.
