Ekadashi


Ekādaśī  likewise spelled as Ekadasi, is a favorable day which happens twice in a Hindu schedule month. It is the eleventh lunar day (tithi) of each of the two lunar stage which happen in a Hindu calender month - the Shukla Paksha (time of the lighting up moon otherwise called waxing stage) and the Krishna Paksha (time of the blurring moon otherwise called melting away phase).

 

Ekādaśī Tithi, the eleventh lunar day (Shukla Ekādaśī) and also known as Hari Vasara because it is dedicated to Lord Vishnu, is a day of fasting and prayers for all Hindus

 

In Hinduism and Jainism it is viewed as a profoundly gainful day and is typically seen by an partial fast. Beans and grains are not eaten amid Ekādaśī, as on this day these two food are accepted to be defiled by wrongdoing. Just fruits, vegetables and drain items are eaten amid Ekādaśī. This time of abstention keeps running from dawn upon the arrival of Ekādaśī to dawn on the day taking after Ekādaśī.

 

Two Ekādaśīs happen in one month as indicated by places of the moon. The movement of the moon from full moon to new moon is separated into fifteen equivalent curves. Every curve measures one lunar day, called tithi: The time it takes the moon to cross that separation is the length of that lunar day. Ekādaśī alludes to the 11 tithi, or lunar day. The eleventh tithi in this way compares to an exact period of the waxing and melting away moon: In the brilliant portion of the lunar month, the moon will show up around 3/4 full on Ekādaśī, and oblivious portion of the lunar month, the moon will be around 3/4 dull on Ekādaśī.

 

There are 24 Ekādaśīs in a date-book year. At times there are two additional Ekādaśīs that happen in a lunar jump year. Each Ekādaśī day has specific advantages and endowments that one can achieve by the execution of particular exercises.
