Pandava Nirjala Ekadashi Kirtans

Wednesday, May 30th, 2012

Nirjala Ekadashi, also known as or Bhim Ekadasi, occurs during the waxing phase of moon in the month of Jyestha (May – June). The greatness of this Ekadasi was explained to Bhima, the second Pandava brother, by sage Vyasa. Hence the Ekadasi is also referred as Pandava or Bhim Ekadasi. This year the ekadasi will be observed on Friday 1st June.

The significance of Nirjala Ekadasi is mentioned in the Mahabharata and Padma Purana. Draupadi and the Pandavas, except for Bhima, used to observe all the Ekadasis. Bhima, who was a voracious eater, could not bear hunger and used to skip the fasting. However, Bhima wanted to find some solution to this. Thus, Vyasadeva explained to him that by following this special nirjala ekadasi (refraining from even water) he would derive the merit of following all ekadasis throughout the year.

On this day, although devotees fast from food and water, they feast on the nectar of Krishna-katha and harinam sankirtan. It is a day to get spiritually recharged by engaging in extra chanting, hearing, remembering, glorifying and service to Lord Krishna.
