Vaikunta ( Mukkoti ) Ekadasi - The Gateway to Heaven
The gateway to Vaikunta is opened on Vaikunta Ekadashi - the most important Ekadasi in Sri Vaishnava tradition. Vaikunta Ekadasi, also famous as Mukkoti Ekadasi is an important festival dedicated to Lord Vishnu in the Tamil month of Margazhi and is observed on the 11th day of Dhanurmasam or Dhanurmasa Ekadashi. Ekadasi means the eleventh in Sanskrit and refers to the eleventh day of the bright fortnight (shukla paksha) belonging to a lunar month. It is one of the most auspicious days to worship and to offer abhishekam to Lord Vishnu as it is the most significant of the twenty four Ekadashi observances. This is the ideal day to seek for spiritual redemption or to rescue from the existing confusion and suffering.

On Vaikunta Ekadasi, Vaikunta Dwaram or the gateway to heaven is opened which is the passage encircling the innermost sanctum of the Lord. People observe a fast and worship lord Vishnu on this day to be absolved from all the sins and to attain Moksha as The door to heaven will be kept open for the soul after it leaves this physical body. The soul does not have a rebirth anymore and attains the lotus feet of the Lord.
