Does eating rice during Ekadashi days can harm us?
It is an age-old practice for Indians to observe a fast (Vrat) Vrat is the Hindi term of fast . It is a process in which devotees do not consume food or/and water on the days dedicated to the Gods they believe in, to show their dedication and to gain health and prosperity on Ekadasi days. According to Hindu calendar, Ekadasi occurs twice in the month. Ekadashi occurs twice in a month, once it occurs after 11 days from the full moon day and secondly 11 days from the new moon.
 
According to Hindu epic, Padma Purana, that describes the mythological relevance of Ekadasi. 
There was a renowned sage, Jaimini Rishi, once asked the significance of Ekadashi from the great sage, VyasVyasVyas
Vyasa appears for the first time as the compiler of...
 
Vyas explained that initially when the world was manifested, Lord VishnuVishnuVishnu
Vishnu is one of the Supreme Gods of Hindus and is a part of Hindu Trinity,..
created a demonic creature known as (Papa-Purush) that was the embodiment of all types of sins. Subsequently, he created Yamaraj, so that anyone who sinned (signs of Papa-Purusha in him) would be punished and sent to Yamalok. 
 
On a visit to Yamlok(the palace of Yam), Lord Vishnu noticed the sufferings of the people living there and had sympathy for them. He created goddess Ekadasi from his female powerand decided that anyone undertaking the Ekadasi fast would be absolved of his sins. 
 
Papa-Purush became alarmed. He immediately visited Vishnu Dam and met Lord Vishnu and pleaded that on Ekadasi day, he had no place to hide. So Vishnu told him that the rice would provide a place to hide on Ekadasi. 
 
 
According to scientific research, the actual reason for this is as follows:
 
It is known fact that the air pressure varies to extreme limits on our planet Earth on the new moon (Amavasya) and the full moon (Purnima) day. This is because, on these days sun, moon and earth come in the straight line.
 
During these days, there are high tidal waves on the new moon and full moon days due to the gravitational pull of moon but from the next day onwards, the tidal waves become calm that gives an indication that the pressure has also receded. 
 
 
Scientific Fact
 
According to scientific research, it takes about 3-4 days for the food you eat today to reach your brain (in the form of blood. Now, if you eat light or fast on Ekadasi days. It means that just avoid cereals especially the rice that is considered as the rich source of the carbohydrate.  However, food that will reach the brain in the form of the blood correspondingly reaches on the New moon or full moon day. 
On new/full moon days, air pressure is high thus leading to an imbalance in everything that include our thought process. 
 
Thus, if the input to the brain is at a minimum, the chances of the brain indulging in any unnecessary activities due to the high-pressure imbalance also becomes minimum.
