2015 Vaikuntha Chaturdashi

Vaikuntha Chaturdashi is a holy day in Hindu calendar which is observed one day before of Kartik Purnima. The Shukla Paksha Chaturdashi during Kartik month is considered sacred for the devotees of Lord Vishnu as well as Lord Shiva because both deities are worshipped together on the same day. Otherwise it is very rare that Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu are worshipped together on the same day.

Most of the temples in Varanasi observe Vaikuntha Chaturdashi and it falls one day before of another significant ritual of Dev Diwali. Apart from Varanasi, Vaikuntha Chaturdashi is also observed in Rishikesh, Gaya and many cities in Maharashtra.

According to Shiva Purana, on the auspicious day of Kartik Chaturdashi, Lord Vishnu went to Varanasi to worship Lord Shiva. Lord Vishnu pledged to worship Lord Shiva with a thousand lotuses. While offering lotus flowers, Lord Vishnu found that the thousandth lotus was missing. To fulfill and complete His Puja Lord Vishnu, whose eyes are compared to lotuses, plucked one of His eyes and offered to Lord Shiva in place of the missing thousandth lotus flower. This devotion of Lord Vishnu pleased Lord Shiva so much that He not only restored the plucked eye of Lord Vishnu but also He rewarded Lord Vishnu with the gift of Sudarshana Chakra which became one of the most powerful and sacred weapons of Lord Vishnu.

On Vaikuntha Chaturdashi, Lord Vishnu is worshipped during Nishitha which is the midnight as per Hindu division of the day. Devotees offer Lord Vishnu a thousand lotuses while reciting the Vishnu Sahasranama, the thousand names of Lord Vishnu.

Although, both Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva are worshipped on the day of Vaikuntha Chaturdashi, the devotees perform Puja on two different timings of the day. The devotees of Lord Vishnu prefer Nishitha which is Hindu midnight while the devotees of Lord Shiva prefer Arunodaya which is Hindu dawn for the Puja. For the devotees of Shiva, the early morning bath during Arunodaya at Manikarnika Ghat in Varanasi is very significant and this holy dip is known as Manikarnika Snan on Kartik Chaturdashi

This is the only day when Lord Vishnu is given a special place of honor in the sanctum of Kashi Vishwanath Temple, a prominent Lord Shiva temple in Varanasi. It is believed that Vishwanath temple become as pious as Vaikuntha on the very same day. Both deities are ritually worshipped as though they are worshipping each other. Lord Vishnu offers Tulasi leaves to Shiva and Lord Shiva in turn offers Bael leaves to Lord Vishnu.

कार्तिक मास की यह एकादशी है सबसे उत्तम
बड़ा खास है यह दिन एक आंवला जरूर खाएं
हर साल एक दिन ऐसा होता है जब स्वर्ग का द्वार बंद नहीं होता है। इस दिन शरीर का त्याग करने वाले को स्वर्ग में स्थान मिलता है। जो व्यक्ति इस दिन व्रत करके भगवान शिव और विष्णु की पूजा करते हैं उनके सभी पाप कट जाते हैं और जीवात्मा को बैकुण्ठ में स्थान प्राप्त होता है।

यह खास दिन है कार्तिक मास की शुक्ल पक्ष की चतुर्दशी। 2013 में 16 नवंबर को यह पुण्य दिवस है। शास्त्रों में वर्णित कथाओं के अनुसार भगवान शिव ने इसी दिन भगवान विष्णु को सुदर्शन चक्र प्रदान किया था।

कार्तिक शुक्ल चतुर्दशी के दिन परमब्रह्म भगवान शिव और विष्णु एकाकार रूप में रहते हैं। मान्यता है कि जो व्यक्ति इस दिन 1000 कमल पुष्पों से भगवान विष्णु की पूजा करता है वह अपने कुल परिवार के साथ वैकुण्ठ में स्थान प्राप्त करता है।

महाभारत युद्घ के बाद भगवान श्री कृष्ण ने कार्तिक शुक्ल चतुर्दशी तिथि के दिन ही मृतक व्यक्तियों की आत्मा की शांति के लिए श्राद्घ तर्पण की व्यवस्था की थी। इसलिए शास्त्रों में इसदिन श्राद्घ तर्पण करने का भी बड़ा महत्व बताया गया है।

Rishikesh, Nov.2 (ANI): Thousands of lamps illuminated the river banks of Ganga here during the ‘Deep Daan Mahotsav’ or, a lamp offering festival, marked here annually on the occasion of Vaikunth Chaturdashi. Vaikunth Chaturdashi falls on 14th day of the waxing phase of moon in Kartik month as per Hindu almanac. Legend has it that lit lamps made Lord Vishnu to come out of his deep slumber on Vaikuntha Chaturdashi. However, the environment conscious people who converged here on this religious occasion in large numbers lit the flour-based lamps mostly, as they dissolve in water. Rajinder Sethi, President, Clean Ganga Water Committee, said, ” We are making the people aware to keep Ganga clean and pollution free because of the increased levels of pollution in Ganges we are requesting everyone to help us keep the river clean.” People participated with full enthusiasm and also attended cultural programmes organized on the occasion. “Today is ‘Deep Daan Mahotsav’ and we have made an OM (sacred Hindu symbol) and we are taking an oath not to pollute the river Ganges and keep it clean,” said Deepali Aggarwal, one of the devotees. Devotees performed Ganga Aarti (prayer) in the evening. For the onlooker tourists, in particular, the illumination of so many lamps and the evening worship of holy river Ganges was a magnificent sight. Hundreds of thousands of Hindus converge on the banks of River Ganges on this occasion and mark the auspicious day by lighting earthen lamps and floating them in the holy river. ‘Deep Daan mahotsav’ is also used as an occasion to spread awareness about River Ganga and the need to protect it from pollution.
