But he was unable to perform the ritual owing to excruciating hunger pangs. Saint Vyasa suggested him to observe Nirjala Ekadasi, which will fetch him the holy fruits of keeping yearlong Ekadasi fasts. Bhima abided by his words and performed Nirjala Ekadasi. The next morning he became unconscious and was offered water of River Ganges along with holy basil leaves to break the fast. This is why the occasion is also known as Pandava Ekadasi or Bhimseni Ekadasi.
