Ekadasi Days in VILAMBI Samvatsara

Hare Srinivasa!

We have the auspicious VILAMBI 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 upavasa. Let us all do the Ekadasi like our Gurugalu has asked us to do.  

Sri Vishnu

Ekadashi – Vichaara and Aachaara

Hare Srinivasa,

“Neither thousands of Ashwamedha sacrifices nor hundreds of Vajapeya sacrifices are equivalent to even one sixteenth the merits of fasting on an Ekadashi”

………….Acharya Madhwaru on Ekadasi in Sri Krishnamrutha Maharnava

Today is the most auspicious Ekadasi dina. This vratha is the holiest and very important among all vrathas and a MUST DO for all between 8 and 80 years. The central theme of Ekadasi fast is to feel a profound mystical experience in which the soul feels the nearness of God by various ritual acts.

Sri Madhwacharyaru in his work ‘Krishnamrutha Maharnava’ established beyond doubt that only after the practice of such a Vratha that our other activities bear fruit. One needs to keep in mind that no matter how many oppathu you do and all homa, pooja and parayana will be in vain, if one doesn’t follow Ekadasi anushtana as said by our Acharyaru.
