Chatur Masa – Dadhi Vrata

Dadhi means Yogurt, curd, or mosaru. Dadhi vrata in Chatur Masa starts from Today Putrada Ekadashi to ends September 6th. During this month all food items using curd are avoided.

You can use butter milk instead of Curd. The Dadhi vrata ends on the Shukla Paksha Ekadasi in Bhadrapad masa.

So, starting tomorrow you can offer any fruit, dry fruit and coconut as naivedya. I had a tough time just offering Mangoes and Candy Sugar as naivedya daily.

I am excited to offer all types of fruits, dry fruits, coconut and also other food items starting tomorrow daily and for Upakarma, Shravana Friday’s, Rayaru Aaradhane and Krisha Janmastami.

Hope you all have a great remainder of Shravana Festival season.

And here are the slokas to recite from UM Panchanga:

ಶಾಕವ್ರತ ಸಮರ್ಪಣ

ವಾಸುದೇವ ನಮಸ್ತುಭ್ಯಂ ಆಷಾಢ ಮತ್ಯತೇನ ಚ |

ಶಾಕವ್ರತೇನ ದೇವೇಶ ಪ್ರಸನ್ನೋ ಭವ ಮಾಧವ

Śhakavrata Samarpaṇa

Vasudeva Namastubhyam Ashada Matyatena Cha |

Shakavrate’s Devesha Prasanno Bhava Madhava

ದಧಿ ವ್ರತ ಸಂಕಲ್ಪ

ಸಂಕರ್ಷಣಾರವಿಂದಾಕ್ಷ ಕರಿಷ್ಯಽಹಂ ದಧಿವ್ರತಮ್ |

ದ್ವಿತೀಯೇ ಮಾಸಿ ದೇವೇಶ ನಿರ್ವಿಘ್ನಂ ಕುರು ಮೇ ಪ್ರಭೋ ।।

Dadhi vrata Sankalpa

Sankarshanaravindaksha Karishyaham Dadhivaratam |

Dweeteyo maasi devesha nirvighnam kuru mei prabho ||

    Thanks for sharing Daddhi Virta, But Lord Krishna likes “Curd” only, not butter Milk. I think God does need to observe fasting rather than us. So we can offer anything he likes.

    Hello ji,
    I am a fan and regular visitor of your site. Thank you for sharing valuable information with all of us. I do not know if you have already shared, but can you share Madhwa ekadashi dates and Dwadashi timings for Canada or North America please

    Thank you for your post ma’am. When do we need to do the samarpane/sankalpa for next vrata?? It should be done on ekadashi or dwadashi day?? I remember the chaturmasa sankalpa at Uttaradi Mutt was done on Ekadashi day during tapta mudra dharane
