The Significance of Parama Ekadashi by Pushpam Appalanaidu


One Vedic event stands out with its profound spiritual significance i.e., Ekadashi. This unique occasion occurs twice a month, on the 11th day of both the waxing and waning phases of the moon with Parama Ekadashi, also known as Purushottam Kamala Ekadashi holding a special place.

This auspicious day is revered for its ability to bestow blessings and abundance upon both the spiritual and material aspects of life.

This year, Parama Ekadashi falls on 11th August in Chennai, India at 5 a.m. and closes at 6 a.m. on 12th August 2023. One must remember Ekadashi begins with the prevalence of Ekadashi Tithi at sunrise.

Understanding The Essence of Parama Ekadashi

This spiritual occasion occurs during the Krishna Paksha, the waning phase of the moon, in the Adhik month according to the Hindu lunar calendar. Parama Ekadashi is steeped in spiritual significance, symbolizing the day when Lord Vishnu, the cosmic preserver, showers devotees with special blessings and absolves them of their sins.

By observing a fast on this day, individuals believe that their sins are cleansed, propelling them toward liberation from the cycle of birth and death, known as Moksha. The spiritual power of Parama Ekadashi also extends to the material realm, vanquishing sorrows and poverty while ushering in financial prosperity.
