20 July 2021 is Shayana Ekadashi (Devshayani Ekadasi, Tholi Ekadashi). This Ekadasi marks the beginning of four holy months in Hinduism (Chaturmas vrata).

On this day, Lord Vishnu goes into Yoga nidra (cosmic sleep) and wakes up on Kartik Ekadasi (Bodhini Ekadashi). On Parsva Parivartini Ekadasi in Bhadrapad month, Vishnu turns from one side to another. Chaturmas Vrata comes to an end on Prabodhini Ekadashi (Kartik Ekadashi).

Pandharpur Palki yatra is celebrated on Ashadi Ekadashi in Pandharpur Vithoba Temple.

Those who observe fasting on this Ekadasi will get the results of observing fasting on all Ekadashi vratas in their life.
