Bhadrakali Ekadasi 2017 Date

Bhadrakali Ekadasi is observed during the 11th day of the Krishna Paksha (dark fortnight) – waning phase of the moon – in the month of Jyeshta (May – June). Bhadrakali Ekadasi 2017 date is May 22. This Ekadasi is dedicated to Goddess Kali and is mainly observed in Punjab, Haryana and Jammu and Kashmir especially by Aryan Saraswat Brahmins.

Please note that this Ekadasi has nothing to do with the fortnightly Ekadasi fasting dedicated to Lord Vishnu.

Hindu communities that observe Bhadrakali Ekadasi believe that Goddess Kali appeared on the day on earth to protect her devotees.

The Ekadasi that is observed on the day which is dedicated to Lord Vishnu is known as Apara Ekadasi.

Sadhguru Thoughts on Devotion

Devotion is like a flower. It is not something that you try to do. If you dig into the earth, you will not find a flower or fruit, but it all comes from there; the plant is only a passage from earth to flower. The fragrant flower does not display any trace of soil, manure or water – it is devoid of all that. Devotion is devoid of you. When you become just a conduit for life, you become an outpouring of devotion. No one has ever achieved anything of significance in any sphere of life without being devoted to what he is doing. Devotion is not only the sweetest way to be, but also the most intelligent way to be, as a devotee effortlessly perceives what one of intellect will struggle with for a lifetime.Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev
