Kamika Ekadashi

Kamika Ekadashi is considered to be an auspicious day to worship Lord Vishnu. Kamika Ekadashi falls during Krishna Shravana month, and it is celebrated by Hindus with pure devotion.

Worshiping Lord Vishnu on this day washes away all sins, free one from worldly desires and helps in attaining Moksha or salvation. It is believed that when a devotee prays to Lord Vishnu on the auspicious day of Kamika Ekadashi, he acquires punya equivalent to punya achieved by performing 'Ashwamedha Yaga' or donating a cow or Yagnas. Besides this, it also relieves one from Pithru Dosha.  

People start their day by taking bath early in the morning and then pray to Lord Vishnu. Panchamrut Abhishek is done to Lord Vishnu on this day. Worshiping Lord Vishnu with Tulsi leaves is also considered favorable, as Tulsi leaves clear all diseases and sins of the person. Milk, sesame seeds, and fruits are offered to Lord Vishnu.

People fast on this day. It is believed that the person, who fasts and worships on this day, would never experience the anger of Yamaraj (God of Death).

They light lamps and donate clothes and money to Brahmins. Jagarans are also performed on Ekadashi night. People break their fast on Dwadashi, which is the next day of the Ekadashi. People also prefer visiting various pilgrim centers and taking bath in Tirthas.
