Varuthini Ekadashi is a holy day, which falls on the 11th lunar day (Eekadashi) of the fortnight of the waning moon in the month of Vaishakha Krishna Paksha. Ekadashi is celebrated every fortnight but is known by different names. In this year Varuthinini Ekadashi will be celebrated on 12th April 2018. Varuthini Ekadashi is one of the important Ekadashi observed by the Hindu community around the world. This Ekadashi is also dedicated to Lord Vishnu, especially his fifth avatar Vamana. Significance of this Ekadashi is explained to the Yudhishtira by Lord Krishna in the Bhavishya Purana. By observing this Vrat (fast), one can attain Moksha.
Once Mahadevji (Lord Shiva/ destroyer of universe) beheaded the fifth head of Lord Brahmaji (creator of universe) and was cursed for this. But he was freed from the sins and curse due to this Vrata (fast) of Varuthini Ekadashi. Performing continuous penance for a thousand years equates and provides the same fruits as keeping the Vrata (fast) of Varuthini Ekadashi.
