Aja Ekadashi is the Ekadashi that is observed during the Krishna Paksha (the dark fortnight of moon) in the Hindu month of ‘Bhadrapada’. In the English calendar it corresponds to the months of August-September every year.
According in the present year the Aja Ekadashi festival dates corresponds to 6th September 2018. This Ekadashi is also popularly known as “Ananda Ekadashi”.
Now, hear again, there is a slight difference in observing Aja Ekadashi. In the northern parts of India, the month of Bhadrapada is given importance, however in the rest of India, Sharavan month July-August is given importance.
The Paksha will be Krishan Paksha only in both these months. On this auspicious day, it is believed that Vrat should be observed.
Significance of Aja Ekadashi:
