Panchamrit is very dear to Lord Vishnu. Therefore, on Ekadashi, offer the Lord a panchamrit made of curd, milk, desi ghee, Tulsi leaves, and sugar candy. Offering Panchamrit brings happiness and prosperity to the house.
Coconut or Shriphal
Shriphal, or coconut, is very dear to Lord Vishnu. Therefore, on the day of Ekadashi, while speaking your wish, offer Shriphal. Due to this, the person will get benefits soon.
Offering black sesame seeds (til) to Lord Vishnu is also considered auspicious. It is believed that the til originated from the body of Lord Vishnu. Therefore, offer black or white sesame seeds on Ekadashi.
