Sabudana Vada

In the Hindu calendar, Ekadashi is the eleventh lunar day (Ekadashi) of the bright fortnight (Shukla Paksha)and is considered auspicious and we fast. But today is the Hindu month of Ashadha (June – July) so it is called  Ashadhi Ekadashi or Ashadhi and this is much more significant to most Hindus.

The other names of this day are  Shayani Ekadashi, Maha-Ekadashi,  Prathama-Ekadashi, Padma Ekadashi, Devshayani Ekadashi or Devpodhi andToli Ekadashi.

Ashadhi Ekadashi or Ashadhi is a day of special significance to Vaishnavas, followers of Hindu preserver god Vishnu. The Lord Vishnu and Goddess Laxmi are worshipped. There are prayers and bhajans sung through the entire night. Devotees fast and take vows that they maintain the next four months called Chaturmas, the holy four-month period of the rainy season. These may include, giving up a food item or fasting on every Ekadashi day.  The fast is strict and you avoid all grains, beans, cereals, certain vegetables like onions, garlic and certain spices.

In Maharashtra, this is the day when the Pandharpur Ashadi Ekadasi Waari Yatra ends in Pandharpur on the banks of the Chandrabhaga River. The religious procession of pilgrims, called Warkaris walk from different parts of Maharashtra, barefoot. Many carry images of saints and they sing Abhangas (chanting hymns) of Saint Tukaram and Saint Dnyaneshwar, dedicated to Vitthal Rakmai or Vishnu and Rukmini.
