In ancient times, King Mahishmat ruled in the city of Champawati. The king had 4 sons, among them Luke was very wicked and a sinner. He used to destroy father’s wealth in misdeeds. One day, sadly, the king drove him out of the country but still did not lose his habit of looting.
At one time he did not get food for 3 days. During this time, he wandering reached a monk’s hut. Fortunately that day was ‘Safala Ekadashi’. The Mahatma greeted him and gave him food. This behavior of the Mahatma changed his intellect. He fell at the feet of the monk.
The monk made him his disciple and gradually Luke’s character became pure. He started observing Ekadashi fast with the permission of Mahatma. When he changed completely, the Mahatma revealed his true form to him.
His father himself stood in front of the Mahatma. After this, Luke presented the model by assuming the rule and he kept fasting for a lifetime Safala Ekadashi.
