Ekadashi 2022 Dates, Timings, Rituals And Significance

Ekadashi fasting has immense significance in Hindu Sanatan Dharma and is considered the most special of all the fasts, especially those who want to worship Lord Vishnu. It is about purifying your soul and preparing it to attain Moksha (salvation).

On the day of Ekadashi, devotees observe a strict fast and break their fast on the next day only after sunrise. Some devotees can choose to fast without water or with only water or with only fruits. If we look at the Hindu calendar, Ekadashi falls on the eleventh lunar day of each of the two lunar phases - Shukla Paksa and the Krishna Paksa. There are 24 Ekadashi fasts in a year and observing these fasts brings immense virtue and happiness.

Meaning Of Ekadashi Vratham

Parana means breaking the fast and therefore, it is necessary to do Parana within Dwadashi Tithi unless Dwadashi is over before sunrise. Not performing Parana within this tithi is considered an offence. Ekadashi fast is all about cleansing oneself spiritually and this day is dedicated to Lord Vishnu, who is believed to be the protector lord of the realm.

The fast is done on two consecutive days and it is suggested that Smartha with family members must observe fast only on the first day. The second one, which is the alternate Ekadashi fasting is suggested for Sanyasis, widows and for those who want Moksha. When alternate Ekadashi fasting is suggested for Smartha it coincides with Vaishnava Ekadashi fasting day.

Legend Surrounding Ekadashi Vratham

Ekadashi is believed to be a Goddess created by Lord Vishnu and it was her, who defeated Tail Demon, Mura and brought peace. Due to this, Lord Vishny was very pleased with her and gave her a boon that whoever observes the fast of Ekadashi, will be able to free themselves from all the sins and impurities of the mind and will surely achieve salvation.

Significance Of Ekadashi Fast

Devotees then read the story of Ekadashi and prasad is distributed after performing aarti to God. On the day of Ekadashi fast is being observed and then Jagran is done by chanting bhajans of Lord Narayana at night. On the next day, break the fast in the Paran Muhurta and offer food to the needy according to the capacity and donate it.

Overall there are many ekadashi in a year and they are of prime significance for the devotees of Lord Vishnu. On these days, people chant Krishna maha-mantra- Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare .
