Vaikuntha Ekãdaši Celebrations
The significance of Vaikuntha Ekãdaši could be traced back to the Padma Purãna one of the 18 purãnas. For those who are with a pure heart, the gates of Lord Maha Vishnu’s spiritual world (the gate of Vaikuntha) are always open. However it is widely believed that on Vaikuntha Ekãdaši day it is open to all devotees. To recall this instance, on this day, in every temple, Lord Maha Vishnu’s deity is decorated and brought in a procession to a mantapam with a special entrance known as Swarga Vãsal (heaven’s gate). Devotees enter through this gate and have darshan of gorgeously decorated deity of Lord Maha Vishnu.
Like all Ekãdaši days, devotees fast on this day and observe vigil the whole night chanting šlokas and bhajans of Lord Maha Vishnu.
