lord vishnu, nirjala ekadashi, pooja, path,

Nirjala Ekadashi 2022 Date: Every year Nirjala Ekadashi fast is held on the Ekadashi date of Shukla Paksha of Jyeshtha month. This time the fast of Nirjala Ekadashi will be held on June 10. Although there are a total of 24 Ekadashi tithi in every month and two in a year, Nirjala Ekadashi has the highest importance. In the scriptures, Nirjala Ekadashi has been described as the most auspicious and virtuous of all the 24 Ekadashis. It is believed that keeping the Nirjala Ekadashi fast alone gives equal virtue to all Ekadashi fasts. Drinking even water is considered prohibited during this fast, hence it is called Nirjala Ekadashi. It is a religious belief that Nirjala Ekadashi fast is the most difficult of all Ekadashi fasts that get the blessings of Lord Vishnu. In such a situation, let us know what to do and what not to do on the day of Nirjala Ekadashi fast.

What to do and what not to do on Nirjala Ekadashi 

Nirjala Ekadashi fast is considered the most difficult. At this time the heat is high and it is also forbidden to take water during this Ekadashi fast. So you have to keep yourself mentally strong. 

Meat, alcohol and vengeful food items should not be consumed from the day before Nirjala Ekadashi fast. On the other hand, on the day of Dashami, eat only satvik food. 


Self-restraint and celibacy have to be followed during Nirjala Ekadashi fast. Charity is also very important on this day. Donate a Kalash filled with water on the day of the fast. Give water to thirsty people. 


On the day of Nirjala Ekadashi, arrange water and grains for the animals and birds under a tree on the roof of your house or in the open. 

On the day of Ekadashi, even a broom should not be used in the house. By doing this small creatures like insects, moths, ants etc. can die, due to this the blame of killing the creature can be blamed. 


Even if someone has not kept a fast on Nirjala Ekadashi, then he should not consume rice on this day. Apart from rice, eating brinjal, carrot, turnip etc. is prohibited on this day.
