The 4 month period between Ashad sud ekadashi (Devshayni Ekadashi - usually falls around July) and Kartik sud ekadashi (Prabodhini Ekadashi - usually falls in October / November) is referred to as the Chaturmas. During this time, all disciples will take extra vows such as fasting, scripture recitals, meditation and other religious observances as described by Lord Swaminarayan in the Shikshapatri, sloks 76-78. Within this period, the Shravan month is considered very auspicious and further observances are kept during the month. One of the major observances taken is to attend religious discourses. To facilitate this important observance, a special Chaturmas Katha (discourses) lasting for 5 days was held in Sanand. Acharya Swamiji Maharaj visited Sanand on the final day, 02 August 2021, to give darshan and bless the congregation.
