In the Suryavansh, there was a Chakravarti king named Mandhata, who was truthful and of great majesty. He was devoted to his people. All his people were full of wealth and happiness. No one had any problems in his kingdom. Once there was no rain in that kingdom for three years and there was a famine. The people became extremely sad due to the lack of food. Yajnadis also stopped in the state. Seeing this calamity, one day the king took an army with him and headed towards the forest. While visiting the ashrams of many sages, he finally reached the ashram of Rishi Angira, son of Brahma.

There the king bowed to sage Angira and said in a humble tone, O Lord! Despite following the religion in every way, there has been a famine in my kingdom. The people are extremely saddened by this. It is said in the scriptures that the people suffer because of the sins of the king. When I rule according to religion, then how did famine occur in my kingdom? I still don’t know why. Then Angira Rishi told the king to observe the fast on Padma Ekadashi of Shukla Paksha of Ashadh month. Due to the effect of fasting, there will be rain in your kingdom and the people will get happiness because fasting on this Ekadashi will give all the attainments and will destroy all the troubles.
