Next 19th Jeth Sud Agiyaras will be celebrated as Nirjala Ekadashi on Monday with faith and devotion.  By doing this Ekadashi, one gets the meritorious fruits of doing all Ekadashi throughout the year.  On such an auspicious day, Lord Vishnu is worshiped and fasted for happiness.  According to the scriptures, it is believed that this one-day fast yields the same merits as all the Ekadashis of the year.


 and fasted for happiness.  According to the scriptures, it is believed that this one-day fast yields the same merits as all the Ekadashis of the year.



 According to a popular story about the importance of this Ekadashi, when Bhima, one of the five Pandavas, questioned Veda Vyasji regarding the Ekadashi Vrat that he could not go even for a day, even a single time without food.  So how can I get the merit of 24 Ekadashi in a year?  Then Ved Vyas told about Nirjla Ekadashi of Sud Paksha month of Jeth, he told Bhima to observe Ekadashi Vrat on this day.  Bhima fasted on this Ekadashi, hence it is also called "Bhimseni Ekadashi".  This tithi is observed without drinking water, hence it is called Nirjala Ekadashi.  Devotees who fast do not even drink water.  He worships Lord Vishnu in the morning and evening and on the next day, on Baras Tithi, he eats food himself after giving food to a Brahmin.


 Offering water to the Sun God by taking bath in the morning.  Then worship Lord Vishnu by wearing yellow clothes.  Offer them yellow flowers, panchamrut and tulsi dal followed by chanting mantras of Srihari and Mata Lakshmi.  A native who takes this vow never remains destitute.  Especially on such an auspicious day, don't break basil leaves, don't tell lies, don't eat rice, don't give up onion, garlic, don't get angry for no reason, keep sanctity in mind and karma.  Apart from this, performing Gauseva on the auspicious day of Ekadashi is of special importance.

નિર્જળા એકાદશી:આ એક દિવસના વ્રતથી વર્ષભરની બધી જ એકાદશીઓનું પુણ્ય પ્રાપ્ત થાય

 In the evening one should continuously chant the mantra "Shri Krishna Sharanam Mamah" as well as "Om Namo Bhagwate Vasudevaya" while going 108 rounds of the Pipla tree.  Also, when to light a pure tulsi lamp, recite Bhagavad Gita.  If possible keep vigil by chanting bhajan kirtan all night.
