PM Modi Greets All on the Occasion of Ashadhi Ekadashi

Today, on the occasion of Ashadhi Ekadashi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi took to his official Twitter and shared a video on the ongoing 21-day long Ashadhi Ekadashi Wari (pilgrimage) in Maharashtra’s Pandharpur.

As per the Marathi calendar, in honor of Sant Tukaram and Sant Dnyaneshwar, the Pandharpur Wari, the annual pilgrimage to Pandharpur is carried out in the Ashadha Shukla Ekadashi month.

At first, PM Modi wished all for Ekadashi. He wrote,

“सभी देशवासियों को आषाढ़ी एकादशी और चातुर्मास की हार्दिक शुभकामनाएं।

आषाढी एकादशीच्या सर्व नागरिकांना मन:पूर्वक शुभेच्छा! विठुराया आणि रखुमाईच्या कृपेने सर्व नागरिकांना सुख, समृद्धी आणि आरोग्य प्राप्त व्हावे, ही माझी विनम्र प्रार्थना!”

PM Modi explained the connection between Pandharpur town in Solapur district with Ashadhi Ekadashi, in the one-minute 30-second video, which falls today (July 12) this year.

He captioned the video,

“The beautiful town of Pandharpur in Maharashtra has a special link with Ashadhi Ekadashi.

Know more in this video.”

Every year in late June, the annual “puja” of Lord Vitthal in Pandharpur town commences with lakhs of devotees marching on foot from different parts of the state, and especially from neighboring states like Goa, Telangana, Karnataka, and Andhra Pradesh.

Not only that but all along the approximately 250-km long routes, the devotees are warmly welcomed by villagers.

Throughout the entire journey, the devotees, chant the glory of Lord Vithoba and other saints, sporting holy basil beads, and the march finally culminates at Pandharpur on the auspicious Ashadhi Ekadashi.

For being one of the most visited places on a single day, the Pandharpur Ashadi Ekadashi Wari journey has been honored by UK’s World Book of Records, considered over seven centuries old.

Apart from PM Modi many more political figures as well as celebrities took to their Twitter official handle and greeted all for Ashadi Ekadashi.

Devendra Fadnavis, Chief Minister of Maharashtra, also wrote,

“I pray to LordVithhal for prosperity &happiness of farmers & people ofMaharashtra!
#AshadhiEkadashi Greetings to all!”
