‘In Mahishmati lives a king named Indrasena. Please tell him about my situation here
— that because of my past sinful deeds I have somehow been forced to reside in
Yamaraja’s kingdom. Please give him this message from me: “Oh son, kindly observe
the coming Indira Ekadasi and give much in charity so I can go upward to heaven”.’

Hare Krsna.
Indira Ekadasi is connected to the story of King Indrasena, who observed this
auspicious fast in order to retrieve his father from hell. It was possible only by
observing the Indira Ekadasi that was upcoming. King Indrasena was successful in
his austerity and saved his father. Furthermore, the King himself became eligible to go
to Vaikuntha at the end of his life. Read the complete story below.
