Mahadwadasi holds significance within the Vaishnava tradition and among those who observe Ekadasi fasting. In this practice, if the majority of the fasting for Ekadasi is observed on the Dwadasi day (the 12th day), rather than the traditional Ekadasi (the 11th day), it is referred to as Mahadwadasi. During Mahadwadasi, fasting begins on Ekadasi and extends through Dwadasi, concluding on the 13th day (trayodasi tithi). This observance underscores a particular dedication to spiritual discipline and austerity within the lunar calendar. Although Mahadwadasi recurs a few times throughout the Hindu lunar calendar, its significance primarily lies in the adherence to this unique fasting pattern. There are no additional specific rituals or celebrations associated with this day beyond its role in the Ekadasi observance.
