Ekadashi – lightuptemples


Price Range :   ₹ 3,000

Ekadashi is a revered occasion observed twice each month in the Hindu calendar. It falls on the eleventh day of both the bright half, known as Shukla Paksha, and the dark half, called Vad Paksha. The spiritual significance of observing Ekadashi far surpasses the merit earned from performing a hundred Rajsuya yagnas or a thousand Ashwamedh yagnas. In fact, not even a sixteenth of the spiritual merit achieved through the observance of Ekadashi vrat Katha can be equaled by these grand rituals.

In Hindu mythology, Ekadashi signifies the transformation of one’s actions, involving the ten senses and the mind, from worldly desires towards a connection with the Divine. During Ekadashi, individuals abstain from worldly distractions and consume only permitted foods as a means of enhancing their spiritual connection.
