Ekadashi calendar

Ekadashi (Sanskrit: एकादशी, ekādaśī, "Eleven", “Eka” – one, “dashi” - ten), also spelled as Ekadasi, is the eleventh lunar day (Tithi) between the New Moon and Full Moon. This is an important day in Hinduism and Vaishnavism tradition. The day of self purification, redemption and spiritual progress.
Ekadasi occurs twice in a Lunar month, in the bright fortnight and the dark fortnight. It is recommended to go strict fasting or even not to eat and drink at all because food is filled with our sins and bad karma. Therefore taking food we increase our bad fortune. Otherwise if we are fasting this day we “burn” bad karma and and increase a good fortune.
