- Tradition of bathing on this Ekadashi by mixing sesame in water, donating clothes and food items to needy people
The first Ekadashi fast of 2021 will be on 9 January, Saturday. This is the Ekadashi of Krishna Paksha of the month of Pausha. It is called Safala Ekadashi. This time it is becoming a coincidence that Safala Ekadashi will be fasted 2 times in this year. The first will be on 9 January and the second time on the last of the year i.e. 30 December. It is called a festival in the Padma Purana. Worshiping and fasting Lord Vishnu on this day eliminates all kinds of sins. Scholars say that fathers also get satisfaction by observing this fast.
The combination of Paush and Kharmas
Lord Vishnu, the lord of the month of Pausha and Kharmas, has been considered. At the same time, the god of Safala Ekadashi is Narayan. It comes in the combination of Paush month and Kharmas. Therefore, the fruits of worship and penance of Lord Vishnu increase on this day. Fasting on Ekadashi fast fulfills the wishes.
Ekadashi fasting dedicated to Lord Vishnu is specially done to achieve success in life and fulfill desire. Lord Krishna is pleased by observing this fast. This fast should be done by law. Just as there is Sheshnag in serpents, Garuda in birds and Ashwamedha in yagyas, similarly Ekadashi is considered the best among all fasts.
This is the method and rules of fasting
Take a bath before sunrise on Ekadashi date. If the pilgrim cannot bathe, then pouring a few drops of Ganga water in the water at home gives its fruits. The importance of bathing on this Ekadashi date is told. That is, a little sesame mixture should be taken in water. By doing this, the sins of the known and unknowingly are eradicated.
The special significance of Surya Puja has been told on this Ekadashi. The Sun God is the form of Lord Vishnu, so they are also called Surya Narayana. As the lord of the month of Pausha is the sun, offer water to the rising sun on this day and bow. After this, worship Lord Lakshminarayana with sandalwood, Akshat, flowers, fruits, Ganga water, Panchamrit and Dhoop-Deep and offer aarti to God by doing aarti. Then sit in front of God and vow to keep the fast for the whole day. Donate clothes or food items to needy people according to reverence during the day.
Rule: Do not lie on Ekadashi. Do not sleep during the day. Do not eat rice. Do not break basil letter. Try not to get angry. Do not eat anyone’s food. Follow Brahmacharya. Husband and wife should not sleep on a bed. One should also stay away from meat and alcohol.
