On November 25, Dev Prabodhini is Ekadashi. According to Padma and Vishnu Purana, on this day Lord Vishnu wakes up with four months of Yoganidra. There is also a tradition of Lord Vishnu getting married to Tulsi on the same day as Shaligram. Pandit Ganesh Mishra of Kashi, who knows the religious texts, tells that on this day, after getting up in the Brahma Muhurta, Lord Vishnu is awakened by bathing and chanting mantras, including conch shells and bells. Then they are worshiped. Diyas are lit in homes and temples in the evening and Lord Shaligram and Tulsi marriages are performed at dusk, i.e., at sunset.
Shiva Purana: Lord Vishnu wakes up from four months of yoga sleep
According to Shivpuran, Shukla Ekadashi of Bhadrapada month was killed by Lord Vishnu on the demon Shankhasura. The war between Lord Vishnu and the demon Shankhasura continued for a long time. Lord Vishnu became very tired after the war ended. Then he came to Kshirsagar and slept. He entrusted the work of creation to Lord Shiva. After this, Kartik woke up on the Ekadashi of Shuklapaksha. Then all the gods and goddesses, including Shiva, worshiped Lord Vishnu and handed over the work of creation back to him. For this reason, Ekadashi of Shukla Paksha of Kartik month is called Devprabodhini Ekadashi.
Vamana Purana: After 4 months of stay in Hades, Kshir returns to Sagar God
According to the Vamana Purana, Lord Vishnu had asked for a three-step land donation from King Bali in the Vamana avatar. He took the earth, sky and heaven in two steps taking a huge form. The third leg asked Bali to put it on his head. As soon as he set foot, the king went to Bali. The Lord was pleased to make Bali the king of Hades and asked for a bride.
Bali said you stay in my palace. God granted her the boon of staying in her palace for four months. According to religious belief, Lord Vishnu resides in the Palace of Bali at Patala from Devashyani Ekadashi to Devprabodhini Ekadashi. Then on this Ekadashi of Kartik month, they live with their lord Laxmiji.
Shivpuran: Lord Vishnu became a stone due to the curse of Vrinda Saligram
This year, Devauthani Ekadashi is falling on 8 November. There is also a tradition of Tulsi marriage on this day. Tulsiji is married to Lord Shaligram. There is a mythological story behind this, in which Lord Vishnu tricked his devotee named Vrinda to defeat Jalandhar. After this, Vrinda cursed Vishnu and made it of stone, but after Lakshmi Mata’s request, she was corrected and returned to Sati. It was from his ashes that the Tulsi plant was born and the marriage of Shaligram with him began.
1. Deepak and Rangoli: This festival has started changing over time. Earlier, from Dhanteras to Dev Deepawali (about 18 days), Rangoli was made in the courtyard along with lamps. Now, due to the busyness of jobs and business, now lamps are lit on five days of Deepawali, then on Devauthani Ekadashi and then on Kartik Purnima. In this way, this festival is reduced to 7 days.
2. Tulsi Marriage: Previously, Lord Shalagram and Tulsi were worshiped throughout the day on the Tulsi Vivah. Different Vaishnavites including family used to visit temples. 11, 21, 51 or 101 pots of Tulsi were donated and Tulsi were involved in marriages in the surrounding houses. After this, there was an entire night awakening.
3. Dev Prabodhini: On Devauthani Ekadashi, Lord Vishnu wakes up with 4 months of sleep. In this tradition, Panditji used to go to every house and worship Lord Vishnu and awaken the Lord with a mantra, but nowadays it is not a tradition. The people of the house wake up the Lord by ringing the Garuda bell with the usual worship of the Lord.
