Khatushyamji:Ekadashi and date
Ekadashi is very important in Hinduism. There are two Ekadashi in each month. Ten days after the full moon and the new moon, the eleventh date is called ‘Ekadashi’. The fast of Ekadashi is considered the oldest in all the vows. Each month there are two Ekadashi and every year there are 24 Ekadasias, but when there is a high mood or maladas, their number increases to 26 Ekadasiya. According to the Hindu calendar, one day is called a date. There are 30 dates in each month. Which are divided into two parts, the Shukla Paksha and the Krishna Paksha. Shukla Paksha When the size of the moon starts increasing gradually, the Shukla side is called. The full moon comes after the shukla side ends. Similarly, when the size of the moon starts decreasing, the Krishna side is called the Krishna Paksha, after the end of it, the new moon happens. Ekadashi also continues on the basis of these parties. Most devotees come to visit Baba on the Ekadashi of Krishna Paksha and Shukla Paksha.
