What is Vaikunta Ekadashi

Vaikunta Ekadashi is mostly celebrated in the southern regions of India. In Northern India, this Ekadashi is known as Putrada Ekadashi. This occurs in the month of Margashirsha which is between December and January. In 2012, it falls on the 24th December.

 Ekadashi is a monthly fasting ritual which is observed by many devotees on the 11th day of lunar eclipse. The entire month is dedicated to Lord Vishnu.

According to Hindu mythology, fasting on this auspicious day is equivalent to fasting on the remaining 23 other Ekadashis according to the Hindu calendar. Vaikunta Ekadashi is considered to be one of the most auspicious days according to the Hindu mythology.
