This festival is one of the strictest forms of fasting in the Hindu religion. The festival is most devotedly followed by the Vishnu devotees. The fast starts with the sunrise on Ekadashi and ends after the sunrise the next day. According to the belief, observing fast on this day also helps in getting the benefit of other Ekadashis in a year. It is regarded equivalent to going for a pilgrimage. The belief also says that people observing Nirjala Ekadashi after death are greeted by Vaikunta, an abode of Vishnu.
