On Ekadasi
Date: Thu Feb 10 2000 - 16:28:44 PST

Dear Bhagavatas
A Bhagavata in our group has posed the following queries. I would like to 
have the views of other Bhagavatas before giving him a final reply. Can 
anyone help?
Anbil Ramaswamy
    1.  Why is Ekadasi considered Perumal's Ugandha thithi ??
    2.  Which kAndam of Vedas / puranas talks about Ekadasi ??  
    3. Why should rice be not consumed on ekadasi ??
    4. If one is not supposed to eat anything on ekadasi day, do we not offer 
anything to Perumal also ??
