The legend or story of Papmochini Ekadashi is told in Bhavishya Uttar Purana. This is highlighted through a dialogue between Krishna, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu, and Yudhishthira, the eldest brother of the Pandavas. The story begins with sage Medhavi, a devotee of Lord Shiva, who used to meditate in the forest of Chitraratha. Indra, the king of heaven, used to often go to Chitrarath with the Apsaras. Once, an apsara named Manjughosha was attracted to the great sage Medhavi and tried to break the sage’s rigorous penance, but due to the power of Medhavi’s penance, she was unable to do so.

Manjughosha decided to break Medhavi’s penance and established a temporary residence in the forest. She sang such a beautiful song that even Kamadeva was attracted by her voice. Manjughosha tried repeatedly to break the penance of sage Medhavi, but he failed. With each passing day, she became more attracted to Rishi Medhavi. One day she finally succeeded in her plan and came close to Rishi Medhavi, thereby distracting him.

In his longing for Manjughosha, the sage lost his senses and lost the purity of his penance. He was not even aware of day and night, he was trapped in the trap of Manjughosha. The two lived together for 57 years and later Manjughosha lost his interest in the sage Medhavi. He told them about this and decided to leave. The sage regained control of his senses and recognized Manjughosha’s trap.

In anger, Medhavi cursed Manjughosha to transform into an ugly witch. In deep grief and sorrow, he went to his father sage Chyavan. His father advised him and Manjughosa to observe Papmochini Ekadashi fast and seek forgiveness from Lord Vishnu. He assured both of them that worshiping Lord Vishnu on Papmochini Ekadashi would help them in life.
