Shukla Ekadashi


What to Know About Shukla Ekadashi, the 11th Moon


“The 11th Moon is for enjoyment; it is a day for pleasures and comforts. That is why it is dedicated to Vishnu. It is a day of wealth and prosperity.” – Dr. Pillai 


Significance of the 11th Moon

Taking place twice a month, the 11th Waxing and Waning Moon phases are powertimes to access the material blessings of Vishnu, the archetype of wealth. Powertime is a word coined by Dr. Pillai to indicate the important planetary alignments happening each day, week, month, or year, which can amplify the results of your spiritual practice.

​​The 11th Moon is naturally abundant. It has the capacity to project its fullness into your consciousness and allows you to absorb and manifest abundance into your life. 


Who Rules the 11th Moon?

Each day of the week is ruled by a certain planet and each planet is associated with a god, goddess, or overlord. 

In addition to Lakshmi, Vishnu is the ultimate wealth archetype. A central deity in the Hindu Trinity of Gods, Vishnu, often referred to as “The Sustainer,” promotes the pleasures and enjoyments of life on Earth. He is known for granting blessings of both material and spiritual abundance, especially during the 11th Moon when his energy is abundant.

Vishnu is Lakshmi’s consort, adding synergistic power to the Shreem Brzee Goddess’ prosperity-producing qualities. In Hinduism, the male/female components are mutually important in the creative process, just as the male and female are critical to reproduction. The Divine couple shares Shiva Shakti (or Yin Yang) energy that combines to foster inner and outer wealth, abundance, and sustainability on Earth.


“The 11th Moon in Sanskrit is called Shukla Ekadasi. Eleven is a number that represents abundance. There is a lot of mythology around this 11th Moon, which is particularly associated with Vishnu. Vishnu is the God of the 11th Moon.” – Dr. Pillai

  • Cleanse: dissolve limitations and negativity regarding your money- related thoughts

  • Attract: acquire the capacity to attract abundance in all areas of your life

What You Can Do During the 11th Moon

  • Offer gifts like flowers, light, incense, fruits, and sweets to a statue or image of Vishnu while chanting his mantra
  • Write the mantra “OM NAMO NARAYANAYA” at least 108 times
  • Fast (with the exception of minimal fruit and juice consumption) to remain alert so you can connect with Vishnu and achieve wealth consciousness.
