Ēkādaśi is the eleventh day of the lunar cycle sacred to Lord Vishnu. It is often observed by fasting from grains and increased spiritual practice such as japa and kirtan. At Kali Mandir we observe ekadasi with a special worship of Hanuman and the recitation of Sri Rama Sankirtana, a litany of hymns and names of Lord Rama.
There are 24 ekadasis each year, each with specific names and different benefits. Mohini is a feminine incarnation of Lord Vishnu. Mohini appeared on Mohini Ekadasi. Observing this ekadashi is believed to wash away the sins committed in previous births, and invoke divine blessings for living a happy and prosperous life.
