Jal Zilani / Parivartini Ekadashi
Jal - Water
Bhadarva Sud 11
On this day in Bali Raja's Kingdom Lord Vishnu turned sideways after sleeping on his back since the start of Chaturmass. This change of Lord Vishnu's posture is known as `Parivartan'.
We thank Lord Swaminarayan for the rain and the water of the rivers and lakes.
Being Ekadashi on this day rules of fasting are observed. To celebrate this day Lord Swaminarayan is seated in crafted boat floating in a pool. Offerings of flowers, sliced cucumbers, sliced oranges and money are placed in the pool and Aarti is performed.
