Kamika Ekadashi: A notable Ekadashi devoted to Lord Vishnu
Kamika Ekadashi is a prominent festivity devoted to Lord Vishnu. The commanding Lord Vishnu is one of the most supreme and revered deities in Hindu cosmology. He is known as the preserver and protector of the world. The mighty deity safeguards inferior beings and the universe from all the adverse energies. 

Significance of Kamika Ekadashi
Kamika Ekadashi is of great significance in Hindu cosmology. In Mahabharata, Lord Krishna narrates the significance of Kamika Ekadashi to Yudhishtra.

It is one of the most significant Ekadashi among the twenty-four Ekadashis that fall in a year devoted to Lord Vishnu. This Ekadashi falls in the Chaturmas period or an auspicious period of four months devoted to Lord Krishna- the most significant avatar of Lord Vishnu. 

How to celebrate Kamika Ekadashi?
Kamika Ekadashi is celebrated by observing a fast dedicated to Lord Vishnu. Devotees wake up early and take a bath. Afterwards, they perform meditation and puja to please Lord Vishnu.
