Mohini Ekadashi 2020

Mohini Ekadashi 2020, Mohini Ekadashi Vrat Katha in Hindi


Mohini Ekadashi falls on the ekadashi (11th day) during the Shukla Paksha (the bright fortnight of moon) in the Hindu month of ‘Vaisakha’ or the months of April-May. Ekadashi vrat is observed by all staunch Vishnu devotees as it helps in getting rid of the sins committed by a person, including those from the previous births. Lord Vishnu appeared in form of Mohini on the ekadashi tithi, that is why the day was named and celebrated as ‘Mohini Ekadashi’ since then. Mohini Ekadashi is celebrated in the month of ‘Vaisakha’ in Northern India and nearby areas, it falls during the month of ‘Chithirai’ as per Tamil calendar, in the ‘Jyestho’ month of the Bengali calendar and it falls in the month of ‘Edava’ as per Malayalam calendar. Hindu devotees observe this ekadashi to seek divine blessings for living a happy and prosperous life.

Many times you might have seen Ekadashi fasting is suggested on two consecutive days. For that consider this thing. Smartha with family should observe Ekadashi fasting on first day only. The alternate Ekadashi fasting, which is the second day, is suggested for Sanyasis, widows and for those who want Moksha. When alternate Ekadashi fasting is advise for Smartha it coincides with Vaishnava Ekadashi fasting day. Ekadashi fasting on both days is advised for staunch devotees of Lord Vishnu.
