Observing Ekadashi involves devout fasting from grains and beans, offering prayers to Lord Vishnu, and engaging in spiritual practices. Devotees wake up early, take a ritual bath, and dedicate the day to prayers, meditation, and reading sacred texts. Some visit temples, participate in satsang (spiritual gatherings), and chant mantras dedicated to Lord Vishnu. The fast usually starts at sunrise on Ekadashi and ends on the next day, Dwadashi, after a specific period. Breaking the fast with simple, sattvic (pure) food is customary, and donating to the needy is encouraged as part of the Ekadashi observance. It's a day centred around spiritual reflection, devotion, and seeking blessings for inner peace and spiritual growth.
