Vijaya Ekadashi- Devoted to Lord Vishnu
Vijaya Ekadashi is one of the most prominent festivals devoted to Lord Vishnu. Lord Vishnu is the ultimate ruler and protector of the universe. The festival cherishes the glories, victorious powers and supreme aura of Lord Vishnu.

Significance of Vijaya Ekadashi
Vijaya Ekadashi is one of the significant festivals in Hindu cosmology. It is observed in the Phalguna month of the Hindu lunar calendar. The legend linked with Vijaya Ekadashi includes Lord Rama, one of the most significant aspects of Lord Vishnu. When the evil demon Ravana abducted Goddess Sita and took her to Lanka, Lord Rama got extremely tensed. He was confused about how he would cross the vast river and reach Lanka to safeguard goddess Sita. The sages and divinities asked Lord Rama to observe Vijaya Ekadashi fast. Lord Rama and all the vanaras performed the fast. After the successful accomplishment of the fast, Vanars made a Rama Setu dam to cross the massive ocean. The dam helped cross the ocean successfully, and then Lord Rama freed supreme divinity from the clutches of evil Ravana by killing the evil monster. Vijaya Ekadashi marks the victory of good over evil.
