Ekadashi Vrat Katha

Ekadashi  Vrat Katha

Ekadashi word has been gotten from the Sanskrit term "Ekadasi" which implies eleven. Hence, Ekadashi happens on the eleventh day of each fortnight. Accordingly, there happens two Ekadashis in every Hindu month, once amid the Shukla Paksha (waxing period of the moon) the other amid the Krishna Paksha  (disappearing period of the moon). According to the vedic scripture, a strict vrat is seen from nightfall on the day before the Ekadashi until day break on the day following Ekadashi, enduring the fasting span to 48 hours altogether.

Ekadashi is otherwise called Harivasara and Hari din. The hugeness of Ekadashi fasting has been recorded even in the Padma Purana and Skanda Purana. A bimonthly event, Ekadashi is by and large seen by the Vaishnavas, however it is interested in non-Vaishnava adherents too. All Vishnu enthusiasts take the Ekadashi fasts strictly cease from expending grains, beans, oats, and certain vegetables and flavours.

The whole day is used in venerating Lord Vishnu through pujas, petitions to God and mantras. Some faithful enthusiasts even keep wakeful amid the night by listening to religious talks and performing Aartis. The day following Ekadashi is called Dwadashi day. The routine emulated on Dasami day is drilled on this day too. The vrat is broken with the nourishment arranged consumed on Dasami day. Fasting on Ekadashi rinses the body and gives the quite obliged rest to the digestive organs.
