Like all Ekadashi fasts, devotees observe the stringent 24 hours fast on this day as well. While some people abstain from drinking even a drop of water and dedicate the entire day to singing songs to appease Lord Vishnu, others read the Kamika Ekadashi Vrat Katha. Preparing kheer for Lord Vishnu is also a common practice on Ekadashi. It is believed that observing the Ekadashi fasts helps people offer penance for their past and brings heaps of prosperity and happiness to the world.
