Vaikunta Ekadasi

Vaikunta Ekadasi – Fri, 25th Dec 2020

December 25 @ 8:00 am 8:30 pm CST

Vaikuntha Ekadashi is an important ekadashi observance that falls on the ‘ekadashi’ (11th day) of the Shukla Paksha (the waxing phase of moon) in the month of ‘Pausha’ in the Hindu calendar. This date corresponds to the months of December to January in the Gregorian calendar. The day of Vaikuntha Ekadashi is auspicious for Vaishnavism followers as it is believed that ‘Vaikuntha Dwaram’ that is the gateway to Lord Vishnu’s abode, opens up on this day. Therefore it is believed that a person who keeps a sacred fast on Vaikuntha Ekadashi will definitely reach the ‘Vaikuntha’ and never has to face Yama Raja, the Lord of Death.
