Mohini Ekadashi, also known as the Vaishakh Shukla Paksha Ekadashi, holds immense significance in the Hindu calendar. Devotees across the country observe this day as a day of fasting and prayer dedicated to Lord Vishnu in His enchanting Mohini form. The legend behind Mohini Ekadashi traces back to the time when Lord Vishnu adorned the form of Mohini to safeguard the elixir from the demons during the churning of the ocean, ensuring the gods received it. Today, on May 19, the Mohini Ekadashi vrat is being practiced.

For devotees observing Mohini Ekadashi, the morning ritual involves taking a sacred bath and wearing clean attire. Setting up a Kalash adorned in red cloth, lighting a ghee lamp, and offering sandalwood, akshat, panchamrit, flowers, incense, lamp, fruits, and naivedya to Lord Vishnu is a customary practice. Chanting the Vishnu Sahasranama and performing the aarti is encouraged.
