lakshmiraghu's picture

Hi friends ... have drawn this rangoli for Vaikunta Ekadashi, this is observed on Dhanur Masa Shukla Paksha Ekadasi or on the 11th day of bright fortnight during Dhanur Masam. Vaikunta Ekadashi 2010 falls on December 17th. It falls on Margashira Shukla Ekadasi day as per Telugu and Kannada calendars. In North India, this Ekadashi is observed as Putrada Ekadasi.On this day, in Vishnu temples Vaikunta Dwar or Vaikunta Dwaram or Vaikunta Vaasal (entrance to Heaven) is opened for Darshan of Lord Vishnu.This gate is opened only on Vaikunt Ekadasi day.
Vaikunt Ekadasi is also observed as Mukkoti Ekadasi.

This is the passage encircling the Lord. the innermost sanctum of the LORD.
Here we go and pray for world peace and good health for all.

Lakshmi, I could not get proper words to express my feelings. Today I could not visit any temple, but seeing your devine kolam, I felt that the "Swarga Vaasal" is in your Fingers. Everything is perfect. Thanks for the write up and also for the Prayers.
( Last week only I suggested to show your efficiency in other forms of kolams and with this super SIXser you bowled me out.)

The symbols look very nice with the Lord's feet in black. The white background has worked well for the whole arrangement, lotus included. We had a nice "free" darshan in you rangoli. Smile
