ஏகாதசியின்ஏற்றம்

– Jaya Jaya Shankara Hara Hara Shankara – Ekadasi Thithi comes twice a month and will happen in the next couple days, depending on where we live and based on sunrise. It is important we remember what Periyava has said (Deivathin Kural Volume 3) about this ‘Mother of all Vratham’s’ (fasting) and what we need to do on that day.  There are 4 levels of fasting prescribed by Sastras, starting with Nirjala upavasam to all the way down. The key takeaway is to avoid eating rice on Ekadasi which is a great sin with no atonement equivalent sin to consuming dog’s excretion. However, the sastras has given a few exceptions on this regard for kids, aged, sick, etc. Chanting of Bhagawan Nama on this day is very auspicious. Ram Ram!

வ்ரதோபவாஸங்களில் உச்ச ஸ்தானத்தில் இருப்பது ஏகாதசி.

 காயத்ர்யாபரம் மந்த்ரம்
