When the Kauravas and Pandavas stood opposite each other on the battlefield at Kurukshetra, Arjuna hesitated. He could not bring himself to lift his bow against his own cousins and uncles. He turned to Krishna for help. It was to clear this doubt in Arjuna's heart that Krishna spoke what is contained in the Bhagavad Gita. Through the Gita, Krishna showed Arjuna how taking the right action was more important than anything else.
People believe that Mokshada Ekadashi marks the day that Krishna narrated the Bhagvad Gita. People pray to Krishna on this day. They believe that with true devotion, they can free their ancestors' souls from Yamalok and help them attain moksha.
