Pausha Putrada Ekadashi 2022: Know date, significance, shubh muhurat, and puja vidhi

Paush Putrada Ekadashi is one of the most auspicious Hindu festivals that will be celebrated on Thursday, January 13. Also known as Putrada Ekadashi Vrat, the festival is dedicated to Lord Vishnu and falls during the Shukla Paksha of the month of Pausha.

The festival is mainly observed by couples who desire to be blessed with children and seek the blessings of Lord Vishnu.

Pausha Putrada Ekadashi significance

According to beliefs, the Vrat observed on this day is prominent for couples to want a child. Devotees observe fast on both the Ekadashis and seek blessings of Lord Vishnu. As per Hindu mythology, the King and Queen of Bhadravati did not have any children. They often thought that who will perform their last rites after they die. Out of exasperation, the King gave up all his luxuries and went to live in a dense forest. On the day of Paush Ekadashi, he reached an ashram near the bank of Mansarovar.

The King shared his desire with the sages in the ashram who advised him to observe a Pausha Ekadashi fast. He went back to his kingdom and observed Pausha Ekadashi Vrat along with his Queen. Later, the couple were blessed with a son.

For the first time, devotees can access the helicopter service directly from Srinagar. Here’s how!

Devotees will start the pilgrimage from Srinagar to Panchtarni, which is the last stop point located at an elevation of 3,500 meters, from where a 6 km trek takes pilgrims to the holy Amarnath cave. From there, devotees can either walk to the holy cave or take a horse or palki to reach the holy shrine.

Earlier, the helicopter facility was only available from Baltal and Pahalgam, which is the twin route to reach the Amarnath shrine, and from Pahalgam, pilgrims either walk or take the help of ponies and a palanquin facility.
