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."

Chaturmaas literally means the period of four months from Ashadh Sud Ekadashi (Padma or Devshayani) to Kartik Sud Ekadashi (Prabodhani). The Sun enters Kark Rashi (cancer zodiac) and travels southwards. Bhagwan Narayan and Devtas rest for this period. Therefore we must be more vigilant against the evils and sins. For all Hindus, this period is to augment their faith and devotion by listening to Katha and observing Vrats. It is inauspicious to undertake any social events such as marriages and Upavit ceremony during this period. The Brahmand Puran, Bhavishya Puran, Shreemad Bhagwat and many other holy scriptures extol the virtues of observing special Niyams for this period.
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.
