Riding the Cosmic Waves: Ekadashi September 2022 and its Divine Significance

As we welcome the month of September 2022, we also greet the sacred days of Ekadashi that fall within this month. Ekadashi, a significant ritual in Hinduism, happens twice a month based on the lunar calendar. It is widely observed by devout followers who fast and pray to Lord Vishnu, with the belief that they can purify their souls and attain Moksha.

The first Ekadashi of September 2022 is known as 'Parsva Ekadashi' which falls on the 6th of the month. This Ekadashi is also referred to as 'Vamana Ekadashi' in the Southern states of India. It is a day of immense spiritual significance. Devotees observe fasting, engage themselves in continuous prayers and refrain from negative thoughts and actions on this day. The belief is that observing a fast on Parsva Ekadashi can rid you of your sins and lead you towards the path of salvation.

On the other hand, the second Ekadashi in the month of September is 'Indira Ekadashi', falling on the 20th. This Ekadashi is dedicated to the worship of Lord Vishnu in the form of 'Indira', the King of Gods. It’s believed that fasting on Indira Ekadashi can provide immense benefits, including the liberation of the soul and the attainment of peace. Some devotees also perform the 'Shraddha' ritual on this day, to pay homage to their ancestors. It is a day of intense spirituality and devotion.

Ekadashi days are more than just fasting and praying. They are about introspection, self-improvement, and inner cleansing. They provide an opportunity to detach from the materialistic world and to get in touch with our inner selves. The observance of Ekadashi in September 2022 serves as a reminder of this profound spiritual journey, which is not just about ritualistic worship but about cultivating virtues like compassion, kindness, and self-discipline. It is a beautiful journey towards realizing our divine potential.
