ASHADHI EKADASHI SPECIAL RECIPES

ASHADHI EKADASHI SPECIAL RECIPES !!

Ashadhi Ekadashi is more of a religious procession festival and is celebrated during the months of June-July (Aashaadh Shukla paksha). This period is known as Chaturmas and coincides with the rainy season. Ashadhi Ekadashi is the day of fast and on this day people go walking in huge processions to Pandharpur to take darshan of God Vitthal. The yatra starts in Alandi and ends on Guru Poornima day at Pandharpur. The feast of Ashadhi Ekadashi is celebrated with great solemnity at Pandharpur. Hundreds of thousands go in pprocession from different parts of Maharashtra. On this day idols of Vishnu & Laxmi are worshipped, the entire night is spent singing prayers, and devotees keep fast. This include, giving up a food item or fasting on every Ekadashi day.
