Shayani Ekaadashi and Chaaturmaasya Vrata

According to Hindu calender, as Shayani Ekaadashi, yesterday was a very auspicious day. This day marks the beginning of an auspicious four months period known as Chaatur Massya when Chatur Maasya Vrata is observed. 

As Guru Pournima and the day on which Vyaasa Puja is performed, today is also an auspicious day.  As the term implies, this day is dedicated to `Guru' (samskrit word for `teacher) in the Hindu calender.
