Ekadasi Days in HEMALAMBI Samvatsara

Hare Srinivasa!

We have the auspicious HEMALAMBI Samvatsara started and the Panchanga is in your hands. While many of you may be checking for our Gurugala Aradhana dates and other important days in the coming new year, please find the EKADASI Dates below. We have heard repeatedly in the Pravachanas, that how important the Ekadasi vrata is and it would not help if one does any other anushtana like Pooja, Homa, Parayana and not strictly adhering to Ekadasi anushtana. Let us all do the Ekadasi like our Gurugalu has asked us to do.  

Sri Vishnu
