Ekadashi calendar for 2020
Ekadashi is the day of religious fasting, which according to the Vedic calendar comes on the eleventh lunar day, and in classical astrology - on the day when the sunrise coincides with the eleventh lunar day. To get a schedule of these days for 2020, you can make independent calculations according to the lunar calendar or use the specially compiled Ekadashi calendar for 2020.
It is believed that during Ekadashi, food is filled with all human sins, and its use increases the amount of negative energy in the body. If on this day partially or completely refuse food, then you can "burn" the negative karma and achieve liberation (enlightenment). From the point of view of dietetics, these periods are ideal for weight loss, in connection with which many nutritionists strongly recommend cleaning and unloading according to this calendar.
The onset of Ekadashi is tied to the time of sunrise, so in different cities its dates may vary. But if you know the Ekadashi calendar for 2020 for Moscow and the time difference, then you can easily determine the fasting days for any other locality. So, in St. Petersburg, the sun rises almost the same, and in Vladivostok and Khabarovsk, new days come 7 hours earlier.
