Shat-tila ekaadashi on Jan 10/ Jan 11, 2010


Dear Members:


Shat-Tila ekaadashi falls on January 10/ January 11, 2010.

Recommended dates for observance of the ekaadashi fast for different regions in the world

1) Those living in U.S., Canada, and other countries in the American continents, Europe including U.K., Middle-east, and India should observe the fast on January 10, 2010.

2) Those living in Malaysia, Singapore, Burma, Thailand, Eastern provinces of China, Japan, Fiji, Australia, and New Zealand should observe the fast on January 11, 2010.


Shat-Tila literally means "six sesame seeds." The fast is understaken on this day after consuming a glass of water in which six sesame seeds have been soaked. You have to mix six sesame seeds in water and then take a bath with it first. Then drink a glass of water in which 6 sesame seeds have been soaked, offer oblations to pitrus (deceased ancestors/ rishis of the past) with water mixed with sesame, and then fast on this day. Observing this will help you in winning the six major internal enemies for the soul (Raagha, DwEsha, LObham, Moham, Madam, Maacharyam), and thus ensure your spiritual progress.


Observance of this fast will ensure removal of all sins and help to keep your karmic balance sheet healthy, allowing you to progress through spiritual levels with least of obstacles.


May our members observe this holy fast and enjoy Divine Grace. [Please note that those who are forbidden to fast due to medical indications may observe this fast on a token-basis instead of undertaking a full fast; like - you may consume only fruits, or avoid only rice items, etc. But, please try to observe the fast in some form consistent with your physical condition and environmental conveniences as this is one of the more strongly recommended ekaadashi fasts].

Which type of sesame seeds are recommended (the white type or the black)? Many thanks for all your posts.

Dear Ms. Savita:

You can use either black or white sesame seeds though generally black is used for vrata purposes.

I am happy that you find the posts useful. There is no better strategy for all-round happiness and everlasting joy than following dharmic principles judiciously. May Divine Grace bless us all and help us to follow dharmic principles to the best of our abilities.

Blessed be.
Pandit R. DAKSHINAMOORTHI.
