Ekadasi is supposed to be a very auspicous day for spiritual advancement. And Srila Prabhupada emphasized not so much work, he didn’t mean, we wouldn’t do… he emphasized on reading, extra chanting, preaching.
Ekadasi is an oppurtunity to make advancement in devotional service. So we look forward to every opportunity
