Significance of Nirjala Ekadashi by Acharya Aaditya

The Pandav Nirjala Ekadashi is due on 23-06-2018. It is believed to be the most rewarding Ekadashi among all the 24 Ekadashis. The legend says that Bheem, one of the Pandava wished to fast on Ekadashis but could not do so because of his uncontrollable hunger. On the advice of Maharishi Ved Vyas, Bheem observed fasting on the Nirjala ( meaning without water) Ekadashi and gained the fruits of observing all the Ekadashis just by observing this single Ekadashi.

Consult Acharya Aaditya on Astroyogi for learning more about Nirjala Ekadashi and a personalized horoscope analysis in the light of this significant transit. 

This day is dedicated to Lord Shri Hari Vishnu and he is worshipped in idol form as well as in Shaligrama form. Worshipping him on this day is known to attract his grace and it attracts happiness and prosperity in life. Performing Abhishek by Panch Amrit (milk, curd, ghee, honey and khand) is considered very auspicious. Recitation of Shri Vishnu Sahastranaam, Shri Vishnu Stotra, Narayan kavach, Purush Sukta etc is also considered very auspicious. Likewise donating clothing, milk, rice etc to Brahmins/needy people is very auspicious. Taking a dip in the holy waters like Ganga ji, Yamuna ji, Godavari etc is also considered very auspicious.
