Dev Uthani Ekadashi signifies the return of Lord Vishnu, who is believed to have reclined in yoga nidra (cosmic sleep) on Shayani Ekadashi, also known as the Dev Shayani Ekadashi. On Dev Uthani Ekadashi, he awakens, and prayers and rituals are performed to invoke his blessings for the well-being and prosperity of devotees.

The Importance of Food Donation

One of the most profound aspects of Dev Uthani Ekadashi is the practice of charity, particularly food donation to the needy. This act of giving holds deep spiritual and humanitarian significance. Donating food to those less fortunate not only fulfills a moral duty but also aligns with the spiritual awakening symbolized by this day.
