When will holy Ekadashi fall in 2023, recorded date


In the new year, 25 Ekadashi will be celebrated in the Hindu calendar. After the alignment of the English calendar and the Hindu calendar, when the dates move back and forth, some of the vrats also fluctuate over the year. There are usually 24 Ekadashis in an English calendar year. This time there should be 26 Ekadashis in a year because there is an extra month in the month of Shravan, but due to fluctuations in the date, 25 Ekadashis will be observed.

Ekadashi fasting is observed twice a month.

According to astrological calculations, the eleventh day is called Ekadashi. Which comes twice a month. One in Sood Party and the other in Vaad Party. The Ekadashi that comes after Amas is called Sud Paksha Ekadashi and the Ekadashi that comes after Poonam is called Vada Paksha Ekadashi. Thus 24 Ekadashi dates in a year have been given different names. Every Ekadashi also has its own importance.

Ekadashi fasting is more fruitful than Yagya

According to the Puranas, Ekadashi is called Hari Vasar, which means the day of Lord Vishnu. According to the scholars, Ekadashi fasting gives more results than Yagya and Vedic rituals. It is mentioned in the Puranas that the ancestors are satisfied by the virtue of observing this fast. The importance of Ekadashi fast has also been told in Skanda Purana. Knowingly or unknowingly sins are destroyed by observing this fast.

Ekadashi in Puranas and Smriti Granth

It is mentioned in Skanda Purana that without fasting on Harivasar i.e. Ekadashi and Baras, there is no salvation by penance, pilgrimage or any kind of holy practice. According to the Padma Purana, a person who observes Ekadashi fast voluntarily or for any other reason, is absolved of all his sins and attains Vaikuntha, the supreme abode. The Katyayana Smriti mentions that fasting on Ekadashi is compulsory for all men and women between the ages of eight and eighty without any distinction. In the Mahabharata, Shri Krishna tells Yudhishthira the names and significance of the 24 Ekadashis to avoid all sins and faults.
