Nirjala Ekadashi – An auspicious day in the Hindu Calender


On the eleventh day (Ekadashi) of the waning fortnight in the Jyestha month, Nirjala Ekadashi occurs. The waterless (Nir-jala) fast observed on this day gave rise to the term Ekadashi. The most sacred day is Ekadashi. The most gratifying Ekadashi is this one. The Nirjala Ekadashi Vrat is one of the hardest fasts performed by devotees on Ekadashi because both food and water consumption are absolutely forbidden. Lord Vishnu is honoured on Nirjala Ekadashi. Jyestha Shukla Ekadashi, Pandava Nirjala Ekadashi, and Pandava Bhima Ekadashi are some more names for it. All sins are forgiven by Nirjala Ekadashi, which also links believers to the Supreme Creator. Without drinking or eating anything, the fast is kept. The most difficult and crucial Ekadashi is Nirjala.

The day of Ekadashi itself is a manifestation of Lord Vishnu, according to the Markandeya Purana and the Vishnu Purana. People who successfully finish the Nirjala Ekadashi fast win Vishnu’s favour and are bestowed with happiness, wealth, and sin-forgiveness. The observer obtains salvation and longevity. After passing away, it is claimed that he was transported by Vishnu’s messengers to his abode, Vaikuntha. Lord Vishnu bestows wealth, well-being, and health upon his followers. Additionally, he cleanses all sins and grants all of his followers’ wants. It is also believed to be Lord Vishnu’s favourite. A person can break the cycle of birth and death by observing Nirjala Ekadashi. Moksha is attained by the devotee who performs the Nirjala Ekadashi fast.
