SRIRANGAM

Hence the attraction and sanctity for this annual festival falling on the eleventh of Pushya masa.  Many other festivals are celebrated too, but in comparison with this Ekadasi Festival, all glimmer like fireflies before the Sun that Vaikuntha Ekadasi is. 

Moreover, this thirtha kshetra became very popular and famous on account of the miracles that emanated from the Karuvarai itself; for Sri Ranganatha instructs, guides and chastises the erring, even if they are priests from time to time, talking in human tongue.  Alwars are kept in perfect and constant touch with the presiding deity.  The episode of an outcaste Tiruppani Alwar borne by a semi-evolved priest and taken to the Sannidhi; and the Sayujya Prapti of Andal are standing illustrations of the God's ever watchful look on the deserving for granting emancipation.  With occurance of such spectacular awe-inspiring events, the city Srirangam is throbbing with spiritual activity that very few Vaishnavate shrines claim this honour, or come  nearer to this glory.
