Ekadashi 2013 Dates, Ekadashi 2013 Calendar,

Ekadashi or Ekadashi Vrata is considered to be one of the most auspicious days for worship of Lord Vishnu. It is basically the eleventh day of every lunar fortnight in traditional Hindu calendar. Thus every Hindu lumar month has two ekadashi’s i.e., Shukla Paksha Ekadashi and Krishna Paksha Ekadashi.

As per Hindu religion, fasting on Ekadashi day is considered to be highly auspicious and it is believed that Ekadashi fasting helps in redemption of sins and in attaining Moksha.

In certain Hindu communities, Ekadashi fasting spans for three days. Devotees take single meal in the afternoon a day before Ekadashi fasting day to make sure there is no residual food in the stomach on next day. Devotees keep strict fast on Ekadashi day and break the fast on next day only after sunrise. Eating of all type of grains and cereals is prohibited during Ekadashi fasting.
