Mohini Ekadashi

Year on year, Mohini Ekadashi is observed on the 11th day of the Shukla Paksha (waxing phase of moon) in the Hindu month of Vaishaka (April – May). It is believed that the observance of Mohini Ekadashi can wash away the sins committed by the devotee not only in this birth, but also in all the previous births.

Significance of Mohini Ekadashi

Mohini is one of the incarnations of Lord Vishnu. When the gods and demons churned the ocean of milk in pursuit of the immortal nectar, the nectar pot emerged from the ocean. Gods and demons fought with each other to grab the nectar all for themselves. During that time, Lord Vishnu incarnated as Mohini, a mesmerizing damsel and tricked the demons to distribute the nectar to the gods. It is said that the Mohini incarnation happened on this Ekadashi day and hence the name Mohini Ekadashi is aptly given to this day.

How to observe Mohini Ekadashi Vrat

Only blessed souls can have the mindset and opportunity to fast on Ekadashi days. Ekadashi fasting is said to be the foremost one among all the fasting procedures we can think of. It fetches the blessings of Lord Vishnu for the betterment of both the earthly as well as heavenly life. The fasting procedure starts on the Ekadashi morning and concludes during the Parana time on the Dwadashi day. A devotee observing a rigorous fast does not even take water. Those who observe partial fast can take fruits and milk during the fasting period. The fasting must be accompanied by puja to Lord Vishnu and engaging in spiritual and charitable activities.
