What is Ekadashi?
Ekadashi is a significant day in the Hindu lunar calendar that falls on the 11th day of each of the two lunar phases in a month. These two phases are known as the “shukla paksha” (waxing moon) and the “krishna paksha” (waning moon). In total, there are 24 Ekadashi days in a year, occurring roughly twice a month.
Ekadashi is considered a spiritually significant day for Hindus and is observed as a day of fasting, prayer, and spiritual reflection. Devotees abstain from consuming grains, beans, and certain vegetables during the Ekadashi fast. The fast is often broken the next day after sunrise.
The specific customs and practices associated with Ekadashi can vary based on regional and family traditions. On this day, devotees engage in various acts of worship, read scriptures, meditate, and offer prayers to deities. Many temples conduct special ceremonies and pujas (rituals) on Ekadashi to honor the occasion.
The reason behind observing Ekadashi is multifaceted. Some believe that it is a way to cleanse the body and mind, while others see it as an opportunity to cultivate self-discipline and focus on their spiritual journey. The stories and legends associated with various Ekadashi days are also an integral part of the observance.
It’s important to note that practices and beliefs can vary widely within Hinduism, and while Ekadashi is a significant observance for many Hindus, not all Hindus may choose to observe it in the same way or with the same level of strictness.
