Bhishma Ekadasi

Magha Shukla Ekadasi Bhishma Ekadasi. This is one of the most auspicious day in  Magha Mass. This day is the death anniversary of Bhishma Pitamah.

In this auspicious Ekadasi tidhi, Bhishma revealed the Vishnu Sahasranama Stotram to Yudhisthira when he was lying in a death bed (of arrows) after the Great battlefield of Kurukshetra.

Some of the important days dedicated to Bhishma are Bhishma Ashtami, Bhisma Dwadasi and Bhishma Ekadashi. It is believed that Bhishma chose this period to leave his body and merge with the Supreme Soul (Brahman). 

People who perform Shradh for Bhishma in this day are blessed with Children/Santana. The auspicious Upavasa of Bhishma Ekadasi is important as it is dedicated to Lord Vishnu. And also it is believed that listening to Vishnu Sahasranama Stotram leads to Moksha.
Performing Arghya/tarpana for Bhishma and Abhisheka/Archana for Lord Vishnu on this day gives health, wealth, prosperity & success in works.
