Apara Ekadashi is a significant Hindu religious observance celebrated in 2023.

It falls on the 22nd day of the dark fortnight (Krishna Paksha) in the Hindu month of Jyeshtha.

Apara Ekadashi is considered highly auspicious for seeking forgiveness and atonement for one's sins.

Devotees observe fasting on this day, abstaining from grains, beans, and certain vegetables.

The fast begins from the sunrise of Ekadashi and ends on the sunrise of the following day (Dwadashi).

Worshiping Lord Vishnu and reciting his prayers are common practices on Apara Ekadashi.

Many devotees undertake charitable activities and make donations to seek blessings and merit.

It is believed that observing Apara Ekadashi helps in purifying one's mind, body, and soul.

The significance of this Ekadashi is mentioned in the Padma Purana, a sacred Hindu scripture.

By observing Apara Ekadashi with devotion and sincerity, devotees hope to receive divine grace and spiritual upliftment.
