In ancient times, Chakravarti king Harishchandra sold his wife, son and himself, renouncing all his kingdom and wealth due to circumstance. King Harishchandra, accepting the truth as the slave of the dome, wore the clothes of the dead and kept collecting taxes from them. But no situation could deter him from the truth.
After many years had passed, one day the king was sitting worried. Then Gautam Rishi came. The king bowed to him and narrated all his sad story. Gautam Rishi talked about keeping the fast of Aja Ekadashi. According to the sage’s instructions, the king kept the fast with full devotion and method. With the effect of that fast, all the sins of the king were destroyed. He got his kingdom again and finally he went to heaven with his family.
