ekadashi

Fasts and austerities have been considered to destroy sins, misery and poverty, suffering and disease. The ‘Puranas’ accord great importance to the ‘Ekadasi’ fast. ‘Ekadasi’ is the eleventh day that comes every 15 days and is a fast to be performed by all in the present age. In today’s business era, ‘Ekadasi’ is a key to seeking ‘DO 1 & GET 10 FREE’ benefit. The ‘Ekadasi’ fast is the best source of man’s physical, mental, intellectual, financial and spiritual progress. The ‘Ekadasi’ fast does the work of body servicing.
Giving up food on the ‘Ekadasi’ day has been considered ideal but if the young, ailing or the old are not able to give it up, then rice should not be taken even unknowingly and meditation, lighting lamps, worship and staying awake during the night have their own importance.
