The Hindu religion holds significant rituals and festivals to celebrate various seasons and deities. Devotees travel from far to honor and worship the respective divinities. Each temple carries important history and idol. The majority of Indian states have their unique temple or shrine that attracts pilgrims yearly. Devotees strictly observe all rituals, Darshan/Sevas, and festivals to gain blessing, good health, happy life, riches, love, and child blessings and remove curses.
The Vaikunta Ekadasi, also known as Mokshada Ekadasi (Ekadashi), is an important and unique day for all Hindu devotees worldwide. The day is celebrated yearly on the eleventh day, popularly known as Ekadashi Tithi, Shukla Paksha. This is considered the brightest phase of the lunar fortnight in the month of Dhanu. The season comes around December and January 13th.
Importance of Vaikunta Ekadasi Day
Vaikunta Ekadasi is conducted at Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam in honor of Lord Vishnu. Devotees believe the doors (Vaikunta Dwaram) of Lord Vishnu’s heavenly dwelling are open on Vaikunta Ekadasi day. During this day, Lord Vishnu blesses devotees with health, wealth, happiness, and peace.
Pilgrims observing the festival get Moksha and everlasting blessing. Vaikunta is also referred to a Vushnuloka/Visnuloka. This day upholds Vishnu, supreme in the Vaishnavite, and his goddess Lakshmi. Vaikunta is a region of Sri Vishnu and is considered above the seven regions of heaven. The gatekeepers allow pilgrims worshiping Vishnu to enter and celebrate
Activities for the Vaikunta Ekadasi day
Devotees must observe a mandatory fast and recite hymns and mantras to praise Lord Vishnu. They also need to perform Puja; pilgrims send nice quotes and wishes to friends, family, and loved ones on this day. Dedicated devotees should conduct all activities of Vaikunta Ekadasi to inherit great blessings and prosperity. Note that Vishnu only opens his gates yearly during the Vaikunta Ekadasi day. This means Vaikunta Ekadasi is the most significant day among all 24 Ekadasi. After the festival, Parana is conducted on the next day. Devotees should do the Parana within the Dwadashi Tithi. However, devotees don’t need to do it if the Vaikunta Dwadashi is complete before sunrise.
Ekadasi Muran and Lord Vishnu
Ekadasi evolved from Padma Purana and has some history that attaches to Lord Vishnu. It’s believed that Muran (evil spirit) once disturbed Devas in heaven. Lord Vishnu tried to fight but couldn’t bring Muran down. During the fight, Vishnu realized the demon could only be fought by female power. He retrieved to his cave and slept. Muran followed him and tried to finish Lord Vishnu, and immediately a female power emerged from him and burned the demon.
Once Vishnu woke up, he was happy and wished to reward the female power. He named the female Ekadasi; for her gift, she requested the Lord Vishnu that any devotee who observes the Vaikunta Ekadasi day be forgiven their sins and receive his grace and blessings. To this day, devotees fast and chants hymns all night. However, this doesn’t forbid pilgrims from partial fast for some reasons. The devotee can take milk and fruits but cannot take any rice food. However, those who can make for full fasting should pray for better life and blessings.
