Importance of Baikuntha Chaturdashi

Kartik Shukla Chaturdashi is considered a symbol of Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva. According to ancient beliefs, it is said that once Lord Vishnu ji pledged to offer 1000 golden lotus flowers to Lord Shiva in Kashi. When the time came to perform the ritual, Lord Shiva decreased the number of golden flowers by picking out one flower to test the devotion of Lord Vishnu.

With flowers falling short, Lord Vishnu remembered his name Kamalanayan and Pundarikaksha, and in turn, prepared to offer one of his eyes to Lord Shiva. Seeing such devotion of Lord Vishnu towards himself, Lord Shiva appeared and told Lord Vishnu, ‘Your form will be known as Baikuntha Chaturdashi on the Shukla Paksha of Kartik month.’

With this, Lord Shiva offered the Sudarshan Chakra to Lord Vishnu on this Baikuntha Chaturdashi. It is believed that this opens the gates of heaven for natives who perform this fast with utter devotion.
