 Varuthini Ekadashi Vrat Katha

Long ago there was once the kingdom of King Mandhata on the banks of river Narmada. He was a really rich and ascetic king. Once, while he was doing penance in the forest, on the same time a bear came and started eating his feet. Mandhata kept doing penance.

He neither raged nor tried to kill the bear. He remembered Lord Vishnu when the pain was unbearable. Then Lord Vishnu appeared there and protected the king. However, by then it was too late and the bear had caused great damage to the king's feet.

The king was very unhappy to see this. Then Lord Vishnu asked him to not hurt Rajan. The bear that has bitten you, it's the fruit of the evil deeds of your former life. You go to Mathura and keep Varuthini Ekadashi fasting there with proper way. Your feet will recover again. The king obeyed the Lord's command and healed his feet again.
