AMBAREESHA

Introduction

Purity of mind and unswerving faith in the efficacy of the spiritual path are exempli- fied in the life of Ambareesha, a great devotee.  Durvaasa, though full of learning, had to face travails because of lack of self-control.  Ambareesha, by his piety, saved Durvaasa from the wrath of Sudarshana Chakra, the weapon of Lord Vishnu.  The name of Ambareesha is  associated with the Ekaadashi vow - i.e., fortnightly observance of fast coupled with  meditation on the Supreme.

Celebration of festivals and fulfillment of vows are occasions of joy and enthusiasm for everybody at home.  Our elderly persons of yore were of the view that worshipping God, observing feasts and fulfilling vows would fetch a lot of merit.
