On Bhadarvo (Bhadra) Sud 11, also known as Parivartini or Jal Jhilani Ekadashi, devotees observe nirjala upvas, a waterless fast. On this day, devotees take a small murti of Bhagwan, Lalji, and the clay murti of Ganeshji to a river or lake. Here, devotees perform puja, arti, and thal of both murtis five times. After each puja, both murtis are taken on a short boat ride. During this time, devotees sing bhajans which describe the importance of sharnagaati, or surrendering oneself in the service of Bhagwan and the Guru. Jal Jhilani and Ganesh Visharjan will be celebrated on Thursday, September 20, 2018 from 6:00pm onwards.
