Ekadashi 2019 | Ekadashi Vrat 2019 dates

Ekadashi Vrat is the most auspicious day dedicated to Lord Vishnu Puja. Ekadashi is observed on eleventh day of every fortnight of the Hindu month (Shukla Paksha & Krishna Paksha).

Some Ekadashi vratas are differed by a day for Smartha, Vaishnava and Gauna sect of Hindus. Smarta people observe Ekadashi on the day during which Ekadasi starts and Vaishnava and Gauna sect of people observe it on the next day.

As ‘Ekadashi’ or the eleventh day of any month is stated to be a special day for worship of Vishnu, observance of of ‘Upavas’ (Fasting), Puja and Vrata are stated to be of significance to qualify for the nullification of sins and a stepping stone for attaining ‘Vaikuntha’. In fact the advantage of performing Vrata in full faith and devotion is stated to reap the fruits of Ashwamedha Yagna and Rajasuya Yagna, besides avoiding ‘Yama Darshana’ or the need for the visits of hell.

    6 December 2011 – Mokshada Ekadashi / Mukkoti Ekadasi / Vaikunta Ekadasi

    The above information is incorrect, Vaikuntha Ekadasi does not fall on 6 December 2011, infact it falls in early January 2012.

    Please correct the information.
