As per the Hindu calendar, each month’s 11th tithi is called Ekadashi. Ekadashi is considered a day dedicated to Bhagwan Vishnu. There are two Ekadashi due to having two paksha's in a month, one on the Shukla Paksha and the other on the Krishna Paksha. Thus, there can be at least 24 Ekadashi in a year, but in the case of Adhik Mas (extra months), this number can also be 26.

The fast for Ekadashi is related to the three-day routine. Devotees do not take the evening meal after taking food in the afternoon a day before the fasting day, to ensure that there is no residual food left in the stomach the next day. Devotees strictly follow the rules of fasting on Ekadashi. And the next day ends the fast only after sunrise. Eating all types of grains is forbidden during Ekadashi fast.

Those who do not keep Ekadashi fast for any reason, should not use rice in food on the day of Ekadashi and should avoid lies and blasphemy. The person who read Vishnusahsranam on Ekadashi, has special blessings of Bhagwan Vishnu.

The dates of Ekadashi fast may vary according to the different followers of the Vaishnav community. Know the dates of ISKCON Ekadashi Calendar 2020!
