All festivals in Hindu religion have their own significance. In every month, there is one Purnima (full moon night), and one Amawasya (no moon night); and the eleventh day of every month is referred to as Ekadashi

Now coming to the time of Kumbh, it is believed to be very auspicious according to Astrology. According to Jyotishacharya Sujit Ji Maharaj, during the time of Kumbh, the importance and significance of Ekadashi are even greater. The fast observed on this day is more important than any other fast. Worshipping Lord Vishnu on this day rids one of all his/her past sins. 

Observing the fast of Ekadashi during Kumbh helps a person attain salvation.
