Amalaki Ekadashi Vrat Katha

According to a legend, when this creation was created, Brahma ji was born from the navel of Lord Vishnu. They got interested in who they're and how they originated. To know the answer, he got absorbed in the penance of Lord Vishnu. Pleased along with his penance, Lord Vishnu gave him austerities.

This made Brahma ji emotional and tears came out of his eyes. These tears fell at his feet and it produced a gooseberry tree. Pleased with the penance of Lord Brahma, Vishnu stated that this tree produced by your tears and its fruits will be very dear to me. Lord Vishnu said that from today, whoever observes Amalaki Ekadashi fast and worships Amla tree methodically, all his sins shall be destroyed and his salvation will be attained.

Second story of Amalaki Ekadashi

In ancient times there was a king named Chitrasen. People used to observe Ekadashi fast in his kingdom. Along with the subjects, King Chitrasen used to observe Ekadashi fast. In the future King Chitrasen was hunting in the jungle, while playing, he went far away in the jungle.

There the demons attacked the king, though his attack had no effect on the king. But gradually as the number of demons increased, their attack made the king unconscious and fell to the earth. A divine energy appeared from his body as he fell, which end to all demons. Then that divine energy became invisible.

When King Chitrasen came to his senses, he saw that all the demons were dead. They had been surprised. They had been wondering who helped them and who killed these evildoers. At that time, Akashvani stated that all these demons have been killed because of the effects of Amla Ekadashi fast. King Chitrasen was very pleased to know this. After this incident, the king propagated Amla Ekadashi fast even outside his kingdom.
