Parama Ekadashi Vrat Katha in Hindi

प्राचीन काल में वभ्रु वाहन नामक एक दानी तथा प्रतापी राजा था| वह प्रतिदिन ब्राह्माणों को सौ गौए दान करता था| उसी के राज्य में प्रभावती नाम की एक बाल-विधवा रहती थी| जो भगवन श्री विष्णु की परम उपासिका थी| पुरुषोतम मास में नित्य स्नान कर विष्णु तथा शंकर की पूजा करती थी| परमा एकाद्शी अर्थात हरिवल्लभा एकादशी व्रत को कई वर्षों से निरंतर करती चली रही थी| दैवयोग से राजा वभ्रुवाहन और बाल-विधवा की एक ही दिन मृ्त्यु हुई, और दोनों साथ ही धर्मराज के दरबार में पहुंचे| धर्मराज ने उठ्कर जितना स्वागत बाल-विधवा का किया, उतना सम्मान राजा का नहीं किया| राजा को अपने दान-पुन्य पर अत्यधिक भरोसा था| वह आश्चर्य चकित हुआ इसी समय चित्रगुप्त ने इसका कारण पूछा तो धर्मराज ने बाल-विधवा के द्वारा किये जाने वाले परमा एकादशी के व्रत के विषय में बताया|
