Nirjala Ekadashi is the most popular festival which falls in the Shukla Paksha dedicated to Lord Vishnu. It falls on the 11th day (Ekadashi) during the Jyestha lunar month (on bright fortnight of the Moon). For this reason Nirjala Ekadashi is also called as “Jyestha Shukla Ekadashi” or “Pandav Bhim Ekadasi” or "Bhimsaini Ekadashi".
The difference from other 24 Ekadasis and Nirjala Ekadashi is that devotees do not drink water on this day. Nirjala Ekadashi is the most austere and sacred of all Ekadashis. Ekadashi Fast (Vrat) is considered highly pious and is assumed to be the perfect way to attain Moksha. Devotees find this Vrat (fast) more strict than others, as it generally falls in the summer season when lasting without water is an arduous task. The fast begins at sunrise and ends on the next day’s (Dwadasi) sunrise.

Observing Nirjala Ekadasi Vrat or Fast is considered equal to going on a pilgrimage, burning your sins, gaining the benefits of all the 24 Ekadashis of the year and cleaning all the negativity from one’s soul. On this Ekadashi, worshipping Lord Vishnu and observing Nirjala Ekadasi fast helps to achieve long life, salvation, happiness, wealth, success and prosperity.
It is also believed that observing Nirjala Ekadashi Fast provides the virtues of all the other Ekadashis observed yearly. However, if somebody is unable to observe this Ekadasi Fast (Vrat) due to any reason, they can make Daan (donations) to the needy people for seeking blessings of Lord Vishnu.
On this auspicious day, Lord Vishnu is worshipped with full devotion. Believers offer Tulsi leaves, flower, fruits and sweets to their lord. The idol of Lord Vishnu is worshipped in the evening with incense sticks. Reading ‘Vishnu Sahastranaam’ and other Vedic mantras of Lord Vishnu is considered auspicious on Nirjala Ekadasi fast. pandava ekadashi varat
