Nirjala Ekadashi vrat observed by devotees on this day is noted for its ascetic fasting and rigorous austerities. In the year 2022, Nirjala Ekadashi vrat is on June 10, Friday.

The word ‘nir-Jala means ‘without water’ and therefore the fasting on this Ekadashi is observed without drinking water and eating food. Nirjala Ekadashi is the toughest and most sacred of all Ekadashi’s and completion of this vrat with utmost devotion and austerity is equivalent to observing all other Ekadashi vrats during the year and also the most rewarding.

Benefits of Nirjala Ekadashi:

Ekadashi fast is considered to be the most prevalent fast among Hindus. There are twenty-four Ekadashis in a year, but in all these Ekadashis, the best Shukla Ekadashi is considered to be more fruitful.

The fast of Nirjala Ekadashi is extremely restrained. In this age, this fast is called complete bliss and finally salvation. Eating food is forbidden in Ekadashi of both Krishna Paksha and Shukla Paksha.

Significance of Nirjala Ekadashi:

The Nirjala Ekadashi is one of the most rewarding Ekadashi observances of the Hindus. This Ekadashi is highly pious and grants prosperity, bliss, longevity, and salvation.

The importance of Nirjala Ekadashi was explained by the great saint ‘Vyas’. It is believed that Nirjala Ekadashi vrat offers the combined virtues of the other Ekadashi’s to its observer. For this reason, devotees who cannot observe all the remaining 23 Ekadashi’s of the Hindu year, should keep the Nirjala Ekadashi fast to get all the benefits together. It is more sacred than visiting Hindu pilgrimage places. Nirjala Ekadashi occurs before monsoons and therefore assists in purifying the body. It is also a popular belief that the observer of the Nirjala Ekadashi vrat, after death, is straight away taken to ‘Vaikunta’, which is the abode of Lord Vishnu.

Ekadashi Mantra:

Vishnu Mantra: Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaya ||

Krishna maha-mantra: Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna Hare Hare, Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama Hare Hare ||

Lord Vishnu will give one the power and strength to perform the Nirjala Ekadashi Vrat in 2016, as always. So, one should get ready to be a part of his immense grace, by observing the fast of Nirjala Ekadashi.

Nirjala Ekadashi Vrat Katha

The legend of Nirjala Ekadashi is connected to Bheem, who was the second and the most powerful Pandava, that is why this Ekadashi is also known as Pandava Bheema Ekadashi. He wanted to observe all the fasts of 24 Ekadashis, but he could not as he was not able to control his hunger. For finding a solution to this problem, he went to sage Vyasa and his grandfather. They advised him to only observe the Nirjala Ekadashi Vrat, because this one fast can provide auspicious results equivalent to the fast of all Ekadashi
