Vaikuntha Ekadasi - Significance 

Vaikuntha Ekadasi, the Ekadasi of Vaikuntha (the abode of Sri Maha Vishnu) falls on the 11th day of the Shukla Paksha (the waxing phase of the moon) of Dhanur masa.  Hindus consider this day to be very auspicious and holy because it is when Sri Maha Vishnu comes out of his Sanctorum and resides near the “Vaikuntha Dwaram,” opening the doors to heaven.   Therefore, many Hindus visit Sri Maha Vishnu temples on this day to seek salvation to avoid the cycle of reincarnation of future births. This day is also marked in the Hindu calendar as the day of “Gita Upadesam,” when Lord Sri Krishna taught Arjuna the holy Hindu scripture of Bhagavat Gita. Hindu scriptures also refer to the fact that gods and demons churned the divine ocean for Amrita on the day of Vaikuntha Ekadasi.
