Vaikunta Ekadasi was celebrated in a grand manner at Sri Kothandaramar Sannadhi, Dalmiapuram. On December 21st 2015, Sri Kothandaramar had beautiful alangaram and entered through the paramapada vasal in the morning and blessed the devotees. Many Bakthas participated and received the blessings of Sri Kothandaramar.The Vaikunta Ekadasi festival is an occasion when the Paramapada vaasal is opened for devotees. Paramapada Vasal, colloquially known as Sorga vaasal is the Gateway to Heaven. For Sri Vaishanavaites, the ultimate in life is attainment of moksha [salvation] by reaching Vaikuntam, the ultimate destination, the abode of Lord Himself. This is The place of no return and the human soul is free from the ills of the World and gets the supreme opportunity of nithya kainkaryam [daily service] to Lord.
