Please come and celebrate Vaikunta Ekadashi with us by performing Bhagavan Shri Krishna’s abhishekam at Sundaram!
It was on this day that Jaya and Vijaya were restated back as the Dwarapalakas of Vaikunta. Upon being cursed by the Sanat Kumaras they had to take multiple forms on planet Earth and Bhagavan Vishnu also had to leave Vaikunta to make sure that his promises were fulfilled. He vanquished Jaya and Vijaya who had been born as demons and Bhagavan Krishna became victorious over them. He gave them liberation and thus took them back to Vaikunta. It is on this Vaikunta Ekadashi day that the swarga loka becomes complete. Please come and celebrate this reinstatement of these Dwarapalakas of Vaikunta!
