Parsva Ekadashi is one of the virtuous vrats that falls on the ‘ekadashi’ (11th day) of the Shukla Paksha (the bright fortnight of moon) during the lunar month of ‘Bhadrapada’ in the traditional Hindu calendar. If you follow the English calendar, it is observed between the months of August to September. Parsva Ekadashi occurs at the time of ‘Dakshinayana Punyakalam’ that is, the night time of the Gods and Goddesses. As this ekadashi observance, falls during the ‘Chaturmas’ period, it is considered to be very auspicious. It is a popular belief that by observing the Parsva Ekadashi vrat, the observer will be granted forgiveness for all his/her committed sins.
