Guruvayur Ekadashi: Significance, Puja Vidhi & Celebrations

Lord Krishna, who is believed to be an incarnation of Lord Vishnu, is worshipped on the day of Guruvayur Ekadashi. The Ekadashi is observed at the popular Shri Krishna Temple at Guruvayur in Kerala. On the whole day of Ekadashi, the temple remains open for the devotees. They follow a complete fast and engage in prayers and meditation of Lord Narayana. Parana means breaking the fast, and it is done after sunrise on the next day of Ekadashi fast.

Devotees should wait for Hari Vasara to get over before they break the fast. Hari Vasara is the first one-fourth duration of Dwadashi tithi, and it is essential to do Parana within Dwadashi; otherwise, it is considered similar to an offence. The festival is celebrated in huge gusto across Kerala, but because of the current situation, the traditional rallies and gatherings won’t occur, and devotees are urged to mark Guruvayur Ekadashi by following the necessary precautions.
