Nirjala Ekadashi is an important Hindu fasting day that falls on the eleventh day (Ekadashi) of the waxing phase of the moon in the Hindu month of Jyeshtha, which usually corresponds to the months of May or June in the Gregorian calendar. The term “Nirjala” means “without water” in Sanskrit, and it signifies the unique feature of this particular Ekadashi.
Unlike other Ekadashi observances, Nirjala Ekadashi requires devotees to observe a strict fast without consuming food or water throughout the day and night. This rigorous fasting practice is believed to be the most challenging and austere form of Ekadashi fasting. It is considered highly meritorious and is said to bring great spiritual benefits.
Nirjala Ekadashi holds immense significance for Lord Vishnu devotees, as it is believed that observing this fast is equivalent to observing all the Ekadashi fasts of the year. Devotees who are unable to observe the regular monthly Ekadashi fasts due to health reasons or other constraints can observe Nirjala Ekadashi and still receive the blessings and benefits associated with the other Ekadashi days.
On this day, devotees wake up early, take a holy bath, and offer prayers to Lord Vishnu. They visit temples dedicated to Lord Vishnu and engage in devotional activities such as chanting prayers, reading scriptures, and singing hymns in praise of the deity. Many devotees also undertake a full day and night vigil, staying awake throughout the night.
The fast is broken on the following day, Dwadashi, after the sunrise. Devotees consume a special meal that includes fruits, nuts, and various vegetarian dishes. It is believed that by observing Nirjala Ekadashi with devotion and sincerity, one can attain spiritual purity, forgiveness for past sins, and blessings from Lord Vishnu.
Nirjala Ekadashi holds a special place in the Hindu religious calendar, and its observance is considered a sacred duty by many devotees who seek spiritual growth and divine grace through this rigorous fast.
