Rama Ekaadasi 2014


Dear Members:



The  auspicious Ramaa Ekaadasi  is to  be observed on October 19, 2014 this year throughout the world - except that those living in Hawaaii time zone of U.S. must observe this on October 18, 2014 itself.

The importance of this ekaadasi can be read by following this link: http://dakshinastro.blogspot.com/2009/10/rama-ekaadasi-fast-for-reunion-with.html


May our members observe this ekaadasi as far as feasible and get the spiritual/ mundane benefits associated with this fast.

Note: I have written many times in the past that Ekaadasi is the only vratam that can be observed even when there is ritual impurity due to birth/ death in the family, and by women in menses periods.  The rule is to just meditate on Lord Vishnu internally (mental worship) and observe the fast without reciting mantras or doing poojas outwardly.  I will be observing this Ekaadasi vratam this time with such a mental worship as I have been blessed with a baby girl on October 14th, and observing the 10-day vruddhi period (ritual impurity on account of birth).  I am writing this here in this blog just so that this can be an example for other pious saadhakas who may be in a dilemma as to whether ekaadasi fast can be observed during such periods.  Dharma shastra pramaana is there for such observance and for sishtaachaaram (living example of other spiritual adherents), my example is there:)

On this note, I request all the readers of this blog to wish my infant daughter well and pray that she must also be blessed with immense will-power and physical health to observe shastraic injunctions well, Love towards God, and unconditional Faith in Divine Providence as that, I believe, is the best aishwaryam for a human birth.


Harihi Om


Om Namah shivaya.


Blessed be

Pandit R. DAKSHINAMOORTHI.
