The Prabodhini Ekadashi (Kartik sud ekadashi) is when the chaturmas comes to an end. This is the first ekadashi after the Diwali festival. The day is also referred to as the prabodhini ekadashi. Prabodh means to awaken. This is the day that the Lord (Dev) is said to arise from his 4-month sleep. It is therefore sometimes also referred to as Dev Prabodhini Ekadashi. Again, because the Lord awakens, this day is also called the Dev Oothi (wake-up) ekadashi. The sentiments for the Lord's disciples behind this day go further. We have to remain vigilant that from this day, the Lord within us also arises, i.e. the divinity of the Lord is present and rejuvenated within us.

This year we are celebrating Bapashree Jayanti on Thursday, 26 November 2020! As part of these festivities an Online Shibir has been organised. See below for shibir details
