Paush Sud 11 - Putrada Ekadashi
PAUSH SUD EKADASHI
This Ekadashi is called Putrada Ekadashi. Once Kumbhandasji and his wife went for darshan of Shri Vallabh. His wife asked Shri Vallabh to bless her so
that she could become a mother of a child. Vallabh blessed her and in due course of time she became mother of seven children. Two of them went to
become staunch devotees of Shreeji.
Once when Gusainji asked Kumbhandasji as to how many children he had, Kumbhandasji answered him saying he had 1 and a half children. When asked
as to why he had replied in this strange manner. He said to have replied that one son is Chaturbhujdasji is a complete son or (whole) because he is adept
in seva of the Lord is both in singing Lord's praises and by experiencing a closeness to Shreeji and whereas Krishnadas as half son because he only
served the cows of Shreeji without experiencing an oneness with Shreeji himself.
