Mohini Ekadashi 2021: Why did Lord Vishnu take the Mohini avatar? Know the importance of this day

Ekadashi fasting is done on the date of Shukla Paksha and Krishna Paksha of every month. 
There are 24 Ekadashis in a year. Every month Ekadashi has a different name and different significance. Shukla Paksha Ekadashi of Vaishakh month is called Mohini Ekadashi. This time Mohini Ekadashi is on 23 May 2021. On the day of Ekadashi, worshiping Lord Vishnu with the rituals of all Lord Vishnu is done away with. It is believed that observing Ekadashi fast on this day relieves all sorrows and the person gets rid of all bondage and attachment. Let's know why Lord Vishnu took the form of Mohini.

Why did Lord Vishnu take the form of Mohini

According to the scriptures, when the Amrit Kalash came out at the time of churning the sea, there was a dispute about this thing among the gods and demons. All the gods sought help from Lord Vishnu. Lord Vishnu took the Mohini avatar to distract the attention of the demons from the Amrit Kalash. After this, all the gods performed Amritpan. This day was the Ekadashi date of the month of Vaishakh, hence it is known as Mohini Ekadashi. This fast was kept by Lord Rama and Yudhishthira.

Importance of Mohini Ekadashi

On the day of Mohini Ekadashi, Lord Vishnu is worshiped as Mohini. On this day, the devotees offer prayers to Lord Vishnu except for the feeling of blasphemy, greed, malice etc. On this day, take a bath in the morning and offer Arghya to Lord Surya. After this, worship Lord Vishnu. Offer Tulsi, flowers, fruits and Panchamrit in the puja. On this day, the devotees perform Phalāhar and on the next day after feeding food to the Brahmins, they take food on their own.

On the day of Mohini Ekadashi, chant the Ram Raksha Strok text. Do not speak untruth to anyone on this day, do not be angry. On the next day of the fast, donate food items to the poor person.
