Vaikunta Ekadasi 2017 to Attain Moksha
Vaikunta Ekadasi or Mukkotti Ekadashi, one of the important festivals dedicated to Lord Vishnu, is observed during the month of Margazhi (December-January). Vaikunta Ekadasi denotes the 11th Waxing Moon that falls in the Tamil month of Margazhi and it is strongly believed that this is the day to unload all your past deeds and pray for salvation.
Vaikunta, hailed in Vedic traditions to be the ultimate place to enter and rest after one’s soul departs from the body, signifies the sacred abode of Lord Maha Vishnu. While Ekadasi, is an auspicious day dedicated to Lord Vishnu in traditional Hindu calendar.
In 2016, there is no Vaikunta Ekadasi and in 2017 Vaikunta Ekadasi falls on January 9th and December 29th. It is believed that Fasting on this auspicious day helps in redemption of sins and in attaining Moksha. Vaikunta Ekadasi, which is known as Swarga Vathil Ekadasi in Kerala, is more elaborately celebrated by Vaishnavites.
Vaikunta Ekadasi – The Specialty
Vaikunta Ekadasi is the most powerful and looked forward Ekadasi out of the 24 Ekadasis or 11th Moons in a year. This is believed to be the most ideal day to seek for spiritual redemption or rescue from the current confusion and suffering! Indirectly, we are reserving our gate pass to heaven in advance by worshipping Lord Vishnu on Vaikunta Ekadasi, as the gates to heaven will be kept open on this day when our soul leaves the physical body.

It is believed that a partial or total self-restraint from food on Ekadasi is rewarded with bliss and will keep you alert in receiving the spiritual energy that comes directly from Lord Vishnu.
