It is believed that Lord Vishnu shifts his sleeping position from left to right side on this auspicious day and that's why it is known as Parsva Parivartini Ekadashi.

Ekadashi Tithi Begins - September 25, 2023 - 07:55 AM Ekadashi Tithi Ends - September 26, 2023 - 05:00 AM

Puja Rituals Wake up early in the morning and take a bath before commencing the fast rituals.

Devotees who observe fast on Ekadashi, do not take bath with soap or any other body wash.

Place an idol of Lord Vishnu and Shree Yantra (form of Goddess Laxmi), Light a diya with desi ghee, offer flowers and put tilak with chandan and kumkum.

Offer home made sweets to Lord Vishnu and Panchamrit (mixture of Milk, Curd, Honey, Sugar and Ghee) and do not forget to put Tulsi Patra in each offerings.

Tulsi Patra is Lord Vishnu's favourite herb so without offering Tulsi Patra, Pooja is considered incomplete.

Recite Ekadashi Vrat Katha, Vishnu Sahastranaam and chant Lord Vishnu Aarti.

New fast observers must note that eating rice on Ekadashi day is prohibited.

The fast can be broken on Dwadashi Tithi but who are unable to observe fast can break their fast by having satvik food items such as - fried potato, sabudana kheer or tikki, fruits and milk products.
