Anant Chaturdashi

Anant Chaturdashi: Devoted to mighty Lord Vishnu
Anant Chaturdashi is an important festival dedicated to the supreme Lord Vishnu. The ancient or eternal aspect of Lord Vishnu is cherished and worshipped with utmost dedication on this festival. 

Significance of Anant Chaturdashi
Anant Chaturdashi discovers excellent significance in the Vedic realm. A woman pledged that she would worship Lord Vishnu in his Ananta incarnation to the best of her capabilities. She received immense prosperity and promising boons due to her devotion and proper worship. But her husband Kaundinya intervened in her spiritual path and said she is enjoying all the blessings because of his hard work. Kaundinya's thanklessness resulted in the couple's loss of fortune and happiness. Soon, Kaundinya realised his mistakes and worshipped Lord Vishnu in his Ananta manifestation to seek mercy. His true penance worked, and mighty Vishnu blessed him by restoring his lost wealth and happiness. He also gave darshan to the couple in his Ananta avatar.
