The day began with the darshan of Sri Radha Madanmohan, dressed as Sri Balaji for the day to mark the Vaikunta Ekadasi celebrations.
There were record crowds at the temple right from the mangalarati. Thousands of devotees visited the temple, had blissful darshan of the deities, and took prasadam.
Shambhu Vaisnav Dasa, General Manager commented that Vaikunta Ekadasi coming on a public holiday seems to have got more devotees than expected.
He also commented that people have been leading a life of anxiety and uncertainty right through the year and are looking for spiritual relief and a divine touch as they usher in 2021.
