Ekadasi Mahatmya 
Once upon a time Lord Ramachandra asked His Guru Vashishtha,how to mitigate the  great distress due to His separation from Sita.The great sage Vashishtha said, “O Lord Rama! There was pious and prosperous devotee of Lord Vishnu named Dhanapala who also lived in city called Bhadravati. This devotee of Lord Vishnu had five sons where one of his son Dhristabuddhi was most sinful. He was extremely wicked, ill natured, had bad friends,He was also fond of gambling and drinking wine.He was degraded from his position in caste society and the pious community and became an object of hatred .He started stealing for his survival.Once he was arrested for committing a special kind of theft. He was taken to the King who banished him from the kingdom for good.Dhristabuddhi went far away and entered into a dense forest. Within the forest he became so afflicted with hunger and thirst that he began to kill beasts and birds indiscriminately and ate their raw flesh. For many years  Dhristabuddhi was always miserable and anxious, but one day, he arrived at the ashrama of the great sage and ascetic Kaundinya while wandering. With folded hands and great humility,he inquired how to get relief from his sinful activities through the atonement .The sage advised him to observe Mohini Ekadasi with all rule and regulations. Dhristabuddhi observed it with a great care.Soon he was relieved from all of his sins and got a devine body.Then Dhristabuddhi went back to God Head on the back of Garuda. Oh,Ramachandra, by observing Mohini Ekadasi, one conquers the illusion of material attachment. 
Suggestion : Please take one time Ekadasi Prasadam only if you can not keep full day fasting. At night you may take a glass of milk. Thus, you can take advantage of your health once in 15 days.
Thank you,

A Friendly Reminder :
Tuesday Varuthin Ekadasi
Fast-Breaking time : Wednesday
5:42 to 10:25 am
The most auspicious and magnanimous Ekadasi is Varuthini Ekadasi. Whosoever observes a complete fast on this sacred day has his sins completely removed, obtains continuous happiness, and achieves all good fortune. King Mandhata was liberated and many other kings also benefited from observing it, kings such as Maharaja Dhundhumara, in the Ikshvaku dynasty, who became free from leprosy resulting from the curse that Lord Shiva had imposed upon him.Whatever merit one obtains by performing austerities and penances for ten thousand years is achieved by a person who observes Varuthini Ekadasi.On the Ekadasi itself one should give up the following:gambling, sports, sleeping during the daytime, betal nuts and its leaf, spreading rumours, faultfinding, talking to the spiritually fallen, anger, and lying.On the Dwadasi the day after Ekadasi (the twelfth phase of the Moon), one should give up the following:eating on bell-metal plates, eating urad-dahl, red-lentils, or honey, lying, strenuous exercise or labour, eating more than once, any sexual activity, shaving the body, face or head, smearing oils on one's body, and eating in another's home.Lord Sri Krishna continued, "Whoever observes the Varuthini Ekadasi in this way becomes free from all sinful reactions and return to the spiritual abode.
Suggestion : If you can not observe full fasting, you can take only Ekadasi Prasadam --fruits, vegetables, and dairy products--at lunch. At night, you may drink one glass of milk. Thus,you can take advantage of your health by partial or full fasting on Ekadasi Day.

A Friendly Reminder:

Today is Kamada Ekadasi

Breaking of fast: Monday in between 6:04 and 10:36 AM

Kamada Ekadasi Mahatmya:

Once, long ago, there existed a city-state named Ratnapura. King Pundarika was the ruler of this most beautiful kingdom where many Gandharvas, Kinnaras, and Apsaraas were among its citizens.’ “Among the Gandharvas were Lalita and his wife Lalitaa, who was an especially lovely dancer.  These two were intensely attracted to each other, and their home was full of great wealth and fine food.  Lalitaa loved her husband dearly, and likewise he constantly thought of her within his heart.   

Once, at the court of King Pundarika, many Gandharvas were dancing and Lalita was singing alone, without his wife.  He could not help thinking about her as he sang, and because of this distraction he lost track of the song's meter and melody.  Indeed, Lalita sang the ending of his song improperly, and one of the envious snakes who was in attendance at the king's court complained to the king about that.  The king became furious upon hearing this. Suddenly he shouted, 'Oh foolish knave, because you were lustfully thinking of a woman instead of reverently thinking of your king as you performed your court duties, I curse you to at once become a cannibal-- a great man-eating demon whose appearance terrified everyone.  Seeing her husband suffering as a horrible cannibal, Lalitaa became overwhelmed with grief.   She had to wander everywhere in the thick jungle with her monstrous husband. However, Lalitaa came upon the sage Shringi one day.  He was sitting on the peak of Vindhyaachala Hill.  Approaching him, she immediately offered the ascetic her respectful obeisance.  The sage noticed her and said, 'Oh most beautiful one, who are you?  Whose daughter are you, and why have you come here?  '"Lalitaa replied, 'Oh great sage, I am the daughter of the great Gandharva Viradhanvaa, and my name is Lalitaa. I roam the forests and plains with my dear husband, whom King Pundarika has cursed to become a man-eating demon. What pious act can I perform to free him from this demonic form, Oh best of brahmaness?'

 The sage replied: there is an Ekadashi named KAmadaa that occurs in the light fortnight of the month of Chaitra. Whoever fasts on this day has all his desires fulfilled.  If you observe this Ekadashi fast according to its rules and regulations your husband will be freed from the curse at once. "'"Lalita faithfully observed the fast of KAmadaa Ekadashi according to the instructions of the sage Shringi, and on Devadasi she appeared before him and the Deity of Lord Vasudeva and said, 'I have faithfully observed the fast of Kamada Ekadashi.  By the merit earned through my observance of this fast, let my husband be free from the curse that has turned him into a demoniac cannibal.

As soon as Lalitaa finished speaking, her husband, who stood nearby, was at once freed from the king's curse.  He immediately regained his original form as the Gandharva Lalita.   All this was accomplished by the power and glory of Kamada  Ekadashi.  At last the Gandharva couple boarded a celestial airplane and ascended to heaven."'

Suggestion: Please keep on chanting as much you can at least 25 rounds of Mahamantra on this Ekadasi day. Stay away from grains and beans. Try to observe half day fasting with only lunch of Ekadasi Prasadam—fruits, vegetables, and milk products—and drink one glass of milk in night. This way, you can take advantage of your health once in fifteen days on every Ekadasi.

Thank you,

Servant of servants of Guru and Gouranga

May Lord Nārāyaṇa protect me from unnecessarily
following false religious systems and falling from
my duties due to madness. May the Lord in His
appearance as Nara protect me from unnecessary
pride. May Lord Dattātreya, the Master of all mystic
power, protect me from falling while performing
bhakti-yoga, and may Lord Kapila, the Master of
all good qualities, protect me from the material
bondage of fruitive activities.

May Lord Keśava protect me with His club in the
first portion of the day, and may Govinda, who
is always engaged in playing His flute, protect
me in the second portion of the day. May Lord
Nārāyaṇa, who is equipped with all potencies,
protect me in the third part of the day, and
may Lord Viṣṇu, who carries a disc to kill His
enemies, protect me in the fourth part of the day.

May Lord Madhusūdana, who carries a bow very
fearful for the demons, protect me during the
fifth part of the day. In the evening, may Lord
Mādhava, appearing as Brahmā, Viṣṇu and
Maheśvara, protect me, and in the beginning
of night may Lord Hṛṣīkeśa protect me. At the
dead of night (in the second and third parts
of night) may Lord Padmanābha alone protect me.

May the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who bears
the Śrīvatsa on His chest, protect me after midnight
until the sky becomes pinkish. May Lord Janārdana,
who carries a sword in His hand, protect me at the
end of night (during the last four ghaṭikās of night).
May Lord Dāmodara protect me in the early morning,
and may Lord Viśveśvara protect me during the
junctions of day and night.
With love and best wishes, take care, bye, Radhe Radhe.

Pranam Dearest Devotee.  Hare  Krishna.
May you receive transcendental blessings and grace
and mercy; health and strength  and  understanding;
peace  and  love; harmony and wisdom;  insight and
intuition and inspiration from the God of Gods; the
Lord  of Lords; the King of Kings; the God of love, the
God Who animates every aspect of the material universe.
He keeps our heart beating and our stomach digesting
food and oversees an incalculable number of chemical
reactions per second that takes place in every cell of the
body we live in.  Lord Krishna  notices everything.  He
observes and pays attention to us. Lord Krishna is aware
of our thoughts and our dreams, our behaviours and our
desires.  It is Lord Krishna  Who causes the trees to grow
and He causes distant galaxies to form and collapse. Lord
Krishna is the Original Bhagavan, the Supreme Personality
of Godhead.  I offer my  respectful obeisances  unto  Him. 
May your devotion to Him be resolute and unflinching; may
your confidence in Him be firm and total; may your love for
Him be unfailing and intense, and may your faith in Him be 
strong and steadfast;  deep and profound;  unwavering and
unshakeable. Know well that  Lord Krishna`s eternal love for
you encircle and encompasses you at all times, night and day.
With love and best wishes, take care, bye. Radhe Radhe.
