Tirumala Vaikunta Ekadasi 2023 Date, Timings, Darshan

Vaikunta Ekadasi is very important day at Sri Venkateswara Temple in Tirumala. Devotees used to fast for the whole day, starting before sunrise and ending after sunrise on the next day. If someone wants to break the fasting then it should be done afternoon hours only.

It is said in PADMA PURANA, that Lord Maha Vishnu took the form of ‘Ekadasi’ – female energy to kill the demon Muran. This happened during the month of Margashirsha (Dec – Jan), impressed by ‘Ekadasi’, Lord Maha Vishnu told her that whoever worships hims on this day will reach ‘Vaikuntam’ (Heaven) afterlife.

Like all Ekadasi days, devotees fast on this day and observe vigil for the whole night. Used to perform Japa, meditation and singing Hari Keerthanas. Rice should be avoided during Ekadasi days as it is believed that the demon Mura finds a dwelling in the rice eaten on Ekadasi day.

It is believed that the doors to heaven ( Vaikunta Dwaram) open on Vaikunta Ekadasi day. This is the passage encircling the innermost sanctum of the Lord. Scores of devotees queue up to pass through the Gate of Vaikunta.
