Ekadashi Meaning : (Sanskrit: एकादशी, ekādaśī, “Eleven”, “Eka” – one, “dashi” – ten), also spelled as Ekadasi. This is an important day in Hinduism and especially the Vaishnavite tradition giving an opportunity to the devotees for self-purification, redemption and spiritual progress.
Ekadashi vratam (fasting) is observed every 11th Tithi (day) of a month of the Hindu calendar. There are two Ekadashi Tithis in a month; one during Shukla Paksha (the bright fortnight) and another during Krishna Paksha (the dark fortnight). Devotees of Lord Vishnu observe this Ekadashi vratam to seek His special blessings.
