FREMONT: Vaikuntha Ekadasi, which is considered as one of the most auspicious occasions according to the Hindu almanac, was celebrated with gaiety and enthusiasm in Fremont Hindu temple on Monday.

Earlier in the day, seeing the cold conditions, hundreds of devotees turned up in large numbers at the temple to celebrate the occasion. As part of the celebrations, the deities were decked up with colourful flowers imported from India.

Vaikuntha Ekadashi is the holiest day in the Hindu calendar for the devotees of Lord Shri Hari Vishnu. Ekadashi is the eleventh day of the Lunar fortnight. Every Ekadashi has a specific significance, and so does Vaikuntha Ekadashi.

This day is named after Vaikuntha, the abode of Shri Vishnu, the one who sustains and preserves the cosmos. The doors of the Vaikuntha opens on this day for those who seek salvation. People who wish to rid themselves from the cycle of birth and death, observe Vaikuntha Ekadashi and seek the blessings of Lord Vishnu.

Two main religious places where this ritual is performed with great zeal are Srirangam and Tirumala.

The temple premises echoed with chanting of Vedic mantra chants by the devotees as the ceremony of Uttara Dwara Darshanam unfolded in the temple. Vedic Dharma samaj/Fremont Hindu temple is one of the oldest temples of the Bay area. It does all the festivities with great enthusiasm.
