About Vaikunta Ekaadashi

The most important festival celebrated for full twenty one  days during  months (December-January), is divided to two ten days as  pagal pathu and ra pathu, with all pomp and pageantry.On Vaikunta Ekadesi  day, Lord Ranganatha, attired in splendid garment, proceeds in a  magnificent  procession through Paramapada Vasal, arrives at Thirumamani  Mandapam in the Thousand in a pillared hall to the thrill and joy of the devotees gathered in lakhs who have come from all over India and abroad.  This occasion is the  peak point of all festivals conducted in the Temple, on this day of days; Sri Ranganatha becomes a virtual king and is known as Sri Rangaraja.  He holds his Divine Durbar in that huge hall which is further extended by a  specially erected and tastefully decorated pandal, throughout the day. Nalayira Dhivyaprabandham is recited, and gets back to the Temple only late in the
night.  Milling crowds of devotees constantly keep  moving from dawn to midnight.  Teams of devotees, engaged in non-stop  bhajans, fast throughout the day and keep endless vigil during the whole night, singing and dancing
to the beat of cymbals.  Verily, it is the sight for the gods to see.  A paradise on Earth indeed!
