The Sanskrut word Ekadhashi means the
Eleventh Day. In a Hindu Lunar Calendar there are two Ekadashis every month as
a Hindu month is divided into two fortnights, Bright fortnight (Shukla Paksha)
and Dark Fortnight (Krushna Paksha).
On the occasion of Ekadashi of Shukla Paksh (Dev Uthi Agiyaras. Tulasi Vivaaha) Bhajan singing was organized at Shiv Shakti Kul Aashram, on 06 November 2011. It is believed that on this auspicious day Bhagavan Shri Vishnuji wakes up from his four months long Yoga Nidra. On the Shukla Paksh Ekadashi of the month of Ashadha Bhagavan Shri Vishnuji hands over the charge of protection and administration of the world to Bhagavan Shri Shivji and slips in to Yoga Nidra, so the Shukla Paksh Ekadashi of the month of Ashadha is known as Dev Podhi (when the God sleeps) Ekadashi.
The Shukla Paksh Ekadashi of the month of Kartika is also celebrated as the day of Tulasi Vivaaha. On this day with grand celebration the wedding of the auspicious plant of Shri Tulasi Maataaji is wedded with Bhagavan Shri Vishnuji’s deity.
From this auspicious Ekadashi of Hindu Lunar month Kartiaka Shukla Paksh Shiv Shakti Kul has began tradition of Ekadashi Bhajan (Holy Song) Singing at Shiv Shakti Kul Aashram. The event was organized by Guruma Pujyapad Shri Shiv Prajnaji. On this occasion Chiranjivi Shri Pranshuji performed a special Puja of Bhagavan Shri Vishnuji’s auspicious form as Shri Shaligram.
Guruji Shri Shriyogeshvaraji strongly believing all forms of Gods being manifested from Para BrahM, Shiv Shakti Kul family celebrates all occasions of Bhagavan Shri Shivji, Maa Aadi Shakti and Bhagavan Shri Vishnuji with equal faith and respect. As Pujyapad Guruji Shri Shriyogeshvaraji says, “Only ignorance makes us divide into sects, a awakened one sees no difference in any form of God.”
Ekadashi Vratam is considered very auspicious for every one. One can observe fast on this day and perform Puja of Bhagavan Shri Vishnuji and Shri Shivji. Such Sadhaka should spend the day with pious thoughts and remember her/his Ishta constantly with devotion and love.
Shiv Shakti Kul celebrates both the Ekadashis of a Hindu Lunar Month, Shukla Paksh (Bright Fortnight) and Krushna Paksh (Dark Fortnight).
