Get ready to buy Lord Vishnu’s gold plated god frames on 3rd March 2023, because that’s the day of Amalaki Ekadashi. This blog is all about the divine vrat and vidhi.
In our culture, Amlaki means Amla which is the primary ingredient in Ayurveda. As per Padma Purana, Lord Vishnu was fond of Amla tree and it was his habitat. Being the home of the divine deity, people worship him right beneath the tree. Worshippers buy divine gifts on this day and give it to their families and friends.
Amalaki Ekadashi Vrat And The Right Way To Do It
Amla is particularly significant during Amalaki Ekadashi. Amla is used for everything on this day, from food to religion. The following are the Amalaki Ekadashi puja rituals:
1. On this day, get up early, make a decision to fast, and think on Lord Vishnu.
2. After making a decision, worship the Lord and take a holy bath. Set a diya on fire and recite the Vishnu Sahasranama while it is burning.
3. After the puja, place an urn containing Navratna beneath an amla tree. If an amla tree is not available, you can still sacrifice amla to Lord Vishnu (prasad).
4. Feed the underprivileged or Brahmins and worship the Amla tree with incense, diya, sandalwood, vermillion, flowers, and other offerings.
5. The following day, or the twelfth day, take a bath, worship Lord Vishnu, and then give the urn, the clothing, and the Amla to someone in need. Thereafter, eat something and break your fast.
