Devutthana Ekadashi 2023: Date, Time, Rituals and Mantra

Article Rating

One of the most important Ekadashi in Hindu culture is Devutthana Ekadashi, also known as Prabodhini Ekadashi. In the Shukla Paksha of the Kartik month, it is observed on the eleventh day (Ekadashi). The four-month period known as Chaturmas, during which Lord Vishnu is thought to be sleeping, ends on this day.

Hindu legend holds that Lord Vishnu goes to sleep on the eve of Ekadashi in the Ashada month during Shukla Paksha and then wakes up right away on the eve of Devutthana Ekadashi.

  • People tidy up the house, take a holy bath, and then depict Lord Vishnu’s feet.
  • An Okhli (Pounder) containing an image or idol of Lord Vishnu is loaded with sugarcane, water chestnut (singhara), jujube, sweets, and fruits, and the container is then closed with a lid.
  • Devotees light earthen lamps in both homes and temples on this specific day.

Tulsi Vivah on Devutthana Ekadashi

Devotees carry out the auspicious Tulsi Vivaah rite on this day. Prabodhini Ekadashi also marks the conclusion of the “Chaturmas” season, during which Lord Vishnu is dozing in the cosmos.

Lord Vishnu sleeps on Shayani Ekadashi and awakens on Prabodhini Ekadashi, according to the Devutthana Ekadashi Katha.

The Tulsi Vivah, also known as the marriage ritual, takes place between God Shaligram, a manifestation of Lord Vishnu, and Tulsi, a sacred plant. Tulsi is revered for her role as “Vishnu Priya.”

Couples without a girl child are required to execute the Tulsi Vivah ritual once in their lifetime, according to myths and Hindu texts. This contributes to Kanyadaan’s virtue.
