Dev Uthani Ekadashi, also known as Prabodhini Ekadashi or Dev Uthhana Ekadashi, is a significant Hindu religious occasion. Lord Vishnu is said to awaken on this auspicious day of Ekadashi, which falls during the Kartik month. It is being observed today, particularly in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, and Chhattisgarh.
According to Hindu mythology, Lord Vishnu married Tulsi, a plant that is said to be the incarnation of a woman named ‘Vrinda.’ Thus, devotees perform the marriage ritual known as Tulsi Vivah, which is said to bring a happy marriage. Rituals
On this day, people wear white or yellow clothes to worship Lord Vishnu. They present the deity with fruits and sweet flowers. Many people also take a holy bath and recite mantras. Some people even observe the Devuthani Ekadashi fast. The fast for Dev Uthani Ekadashi begins on Dashami, a day before the Ekadashi, and lasts until Dwadashi after the Parana Muhurat. Happy Devuthani Ekadashi to everyone!
