Lord Rama went to the forest for fourteen years of exile along with his beloved wife Sita Devi and brother Lakshman. They led a beautiful life in Panchavati on the banks of River Godavari for some period. After king Ravana kidnapped Sita Devi and fled to Lanka, Rama created a team of monkey soldiers with the intention to cross Indian Ocean. However, it proved to be a herculean task for him to obtain the desired results. Eventually, he had to approach sage Bakadalbhya, the sage informed Rama that Ekadashi is the most auspicious day to cross the ocean to which Lord Rama heeded and was able to emerge victorious over Ravana. Hence, the day is referred to as “Vijaya Ekadashi”. and also they are bound to obtain the same result as that of Vajapayee sacrifice.
