Nirjala Ekadashi, one of the most pious festival is celebrated today by Hindus. The festival falls on the eleventh day (Ekadashi) of the waxing fortnight in Jyestha month. The Ekadashi derives its name from the water-less (Nir-jala) fast observed on this day. It is considered the most sacred Ekadashi. It is the most rewarding Ekadashi.
Nirjala Ekadashi Vratam is the toughest among all Ekadashi fasting due to strict fasting rules. Devotees abstain not only from food but also from water while observing Nirjala Ekadashi Vrat.
This dry fasting ritual has been followed since the Vedic age. The only difference between Nirajala Ekadasi Vrat and Roza observed by Muslims during the month of Ramzan, is that dry fasting on Nirjala Ekadasi goes on for 24 hours from sunrise till next sunrise.
Story of Nirjala Ekadashi:
According to the Markandeya Purana and Vishnu Purana, the day of Ekadashi itself is a form of Lord Vishnu. Those who complete the Vrata of Nirjala Ekadashi gains the favor of Vishnu, who grants them happiness, prosperity, and forgiveness for sins. The observer gains longevity and salvation. He is believed to be taken by messengers of Vishnu to Vaikuntha, the abode of Vishnu, after death. Lord Vishnu blesses his devotees with wealth, prosperity, and health. He also fulfills all the wishes of his devotees and removes all the sins. Observing fast on Nirjala Ekadashi is equivalent to observing all the Ekadashis. It is also considered as Lord Vishnu’s most favorite one. By performing Nirjala Ekadashi, one can get rid of the cycle of birth and death. The devotee who observes the fast of Nirjala Ekadashi attains Moksha.
