The Purāṇic glories of Ekādaśī
Once in the great assembly of the sages, the renowned scholar and sage Śrī Sūta Gosvāmī declared about the twenty six ekādaśīs.

There are two ekādaśīs in each month, so there are twenty four ekādaśīs in a year. Apart from them there are two more ekādaśīs which occur in an extra month that comes after every two and half years. The names of the twenty four ekādaśīs are as follows Utpannā, Mokṣadā, Saphalā, Putradā, Ṣaṭ-tilā, Jayā, Vijayā, Āmalakī, Pāpamocanī, Kāmadā, Varuthinī, Mohinī, Aparā, Nirjala, Yoginī, Śayana, Kāmikā, Pavitrā, Annadā, Pārśva, Indirā, Paśāṅkuśā, Rāma and Utthāna ekādaśī. The names of the two extra ekādaśīs are
Padminī and Parama.

In that assembly the glories of all the ekādaśīs were properly sung. Those who are unable to observe ekādaśī can get the result of observing ekādaśī by hearing and singing their glories.

Ekādaśī is the mother of Kṛṣṇa- Bhakti, love and affection. If you do not follow ekādaśī, Kṛṣṇa- Bhakti will never come.
