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.
