Pavitra Ekadashi - Bhadarva Sud Ekadashi
King Yudhishthir asked Bhagwan, "O Shree Krishna! By what name the Ekadashi falling in the Sud fortnight of the month of Bhadrapad? Please narrate me the Katha of its significance."
Bhagwan Shree Krishna replied, "O King Yudhishthir! Bhadarva Sud Ekadashi is known as Pavitra (Parivartini) Ekadashi. Also known as Vaman Ekadashi, it is capable of dispelling all sins and harbinger of good fortune. Fasting on this Ekadashi grants one heaven or Moksha as per devotee's desire. Whoever wishes to uplift himself should observe its Vrat. My devotees worship Bhagwan Vaman on this day, which bring them closer to Me. Bhagwan Narayan, asleep since Devshayani Ekadashi, turns on His side. Therefore this Ekadashi is known as Parivartini Ekadashi."
Kaamika Ekadashi - Ashadh Vad Ekadashi
King Yudhishthir once asked Bhagwan Shree Krishna, "O Vaasudev! What is the name and significance of the Ekadshi that fall in the dark fortnight of the month of Ashadh?!"
Bhagwan Shree Krishna replied, "O king! Vrat of this Ekadashi dispels all sins just as the rising sun dispels darkness. I will reiterate the same answer Brahma gave to Sage Narad when later asked Brahma the same question. Listen to it attentively."
With its origins stemming from a handful of people searching for a place of worship in a new country, Shree Swaminarayan Temple, Willesden has today become much more than one of the biggest Hindu Temples in Europe. From humble beginnings, it has grown to become an inspiration to thousands, keeping our culture, music and language alive with the hint of the British lifestyle we have grown up with. It continues to teach the core foundations of our religion; compassion, thirst for knowledge, morality, and respect for all human beings. As an important part of the local community, Willesden Temple has become a place where lifelong friendships have been made.
As a community we encourage all our Temple visitors to car share, walk or use public transport where possible.
