Fast story of Putrada Ekadashi
According to Shri Padmapuran, King Mahijit of Mahishmatipuri was very dear to peace and religion in Dwapar Yuga but he had no son. The well-wishers of the king told this to Mahamuni Lomesh. Mahamuni told that the king had committed some atrocities in his previous life. Once on Ekadashi day in the afternoon, he reached a reservoir. Seeing a thirsty cow drinking water there, he stopped it and started drinking water himself. It was against the religion of the king to do so. Due to some virtuous deeds of the previous birth, he became the king in the next life, but due to that one sin, he is still childless. Mahamuni told that if all the well-wishers of the king observe fast on the Ekadashi date of Shravan Shukla Paksha and give his virtue to the king, then they will surely have a child.
