Pausha Putrada Ekadashi
Pausha Putrada Ekadashi is a consecrated day to undertake a fast the Vaishnavas. It falls on the "ekadashi" (eleventh day) amid the Shukla Paksha (the splendid fortnight of moon) of the month of "Pausha" in the customary Hindu date-book. This relates to the months of December to January in the English logbook. This ekadashi is basically observed by couples who long to be honored with a child. The Pausha Putrada Ekadashi is exceptionally promising, particularly for supporters of Lord Vishnu in the Northern states of the nation. In a few locales of South India, Pausha Putrada Ekadashi is commended as 'Vaikunta Ekadashi', 'Swargavathil Ekadashi' or 'Mukkoti Ekadashi'.
