Ekadashi December 2017 date – Monthly Fasting Dedicated to Hindu God Vishnu in December 2017

Ekadashi is a monthly fasting dedicated to Lord Vishnu and is observed on the 11th day of a lunar fortnight. Ekadasi December 2017 dates are December 13 and December 29.

  • December 13, 2017, Ekadasi is known as Saphala Ekadasi in most regions.
  • December 29, 2017, Ekadasi is known as Putrada Ekadasi. The day is observed as the famous Vaikunta Ekadasi in South India.

The preparation for Ekadashi fasting begins on the Dasami day – the day before Ekadasi. On the Ekadasi day, devotees observe complete fast. The day is meant for hearing religious discourses and performing pujas.

There are also devotees who do not observe total fast. They avoid grains especially rice and consume fruits, nuts, and milk.

The fasting comes to an end on the Dwadashi day with the consuming of food cooked in one’s house.
