Why Nirjala Ekadashi is observed
According to the Hindu Scriptures, Nirjala Ekadashi is known as Bhima Ekadashi or Pandava Ekadashi. Once Bhima wanted to observe Ekadashi fast to offer prayers to Lord Vishnu but he had no control over his hunger, while his brothers used to keep all Ekadashi fast. Bhima approached sage Vyas ji (who was the creator of Mahabharata Scripture) to seek a solution for his inability to observe all Ekadashi fast. Sage Vyas advised Bhima to observe the Nirjala Ekadashi fast as by observing Nirjala Ekadashi fast alone, Bhima could get rid of his guilt of not observing all Ekadashi fast. Sage Vyas told him that Nirjala Ekadashi is observed once a year and he would derive the advantages of all the other Ekadashis by observing only Nirjala Ekadashi fast.
