Hinduism - What Is Ekadashi Baruthani?



The eleventh day (ekadashi) of the dark, or waning, half of the lunar month of Baisakh, which falls between April and May, is the festival. 



The festival is devoted to the adoration of Vishnu, particularly in his fifth incarnation, the Vamana avatar. 


  • Most Hindu holidays have specified rituals, which typically include fasting (upavasa) and devotion, and frequently promise particular rewards if they are followed faithfully. 
  • Those who follow this practice should avoid being angry or backbiting, and consume food that has been cooked without salt or oil. 



The word Baruthani means "armored" or "protected," and it is thought that keeping this festival properly observed would shield one from all harm and provide great prosperity. 


  • An ascetic whose foot has been bitten off by a wild beast regains the leg by completing this procedure, according to the founding myth.
