Today is not Ekadasi. I thought it was, but it is not. I had the Krishna-kathamrta Bindu in my inbox, which helped convince me of this fallacy. I found out this afternoon at my kids’ school. I should have realized when I saw Sri Sri Radha Syamasundara in teal, but no. Yoga-maya did not allow me to make the connection.
I have been following Ekadasi. My husband has, too. I saw my kids swipe some popcorn from Kanchabala after school, so they are busted. True, it is Kartik….more benefit! But I am vata and to be honest, I just don’t want to do this again tomorrow. What to speak of the whole Ekadasi cooking yajna.
It must be Ekadasi somewhere else on this planet, no?
