Vaikuntha Ekadashi 2023 Date, Time, Significance And Rules Of Fasting
The Vaikuntha Ekadashi is the biggest and most important of all the Ekadashis. Devotees think that going on a fast on this day will enable them to pass through the gate of salvation and ascend to heaven. Additionally, it is thought that fasting on this day can spiritually cleanse a person’s body and soul. A person can overcome any challenges in their life by keeping a day-long fast.
Furthermore, it is thought that on Vaikuntha Ekadashi, Lord Vishnu unlocks the gate to his home Vaikuntha. It is also believed that on this day, while devotees listen to the Vaikunth Dwar tale, they can physically feel Vishnu emerge through the door.
Many of India’s temples resemble Vaikuntha Dwar’s door-like design. At the Bhadrachalam Sita Ramachandra Swamy Temple, Srirangam Ranganathaswamy Temple, and Tirupati Balaji Temple, it is celebrated in all its splendour. In addition to these temples, Vaikuntha Ekadashi is observed in all temples in Southern India that are devoted to Bhagwan Vishnu and his incarnations.
