As that sacred thread is considered Anantha data which is made up of 14 strands. The thread is made of 14 knots where women wear the thread on their left hand and men on the right hand.
Anantha Padmanabha vratha is observed in the belief that it will grant one liberation from all suffering. Devotees believe that if the Anantha Padmanabha vratha is observed with the highest devotion, Lord Narayana will remove all obstacles in one’s life. The word “Ananta” means unending.
The right time to observe the Anantha Padmanabha Vratha in the month of Bhadrapada Shukla paksha on Anantha Chaturdashi which is the 14th day of the Waxing moon during the month of sep-oct.
The legend behind Anantha Padmanabha Vratha is mentioned in various shastra and Puranas. As per them once Lord Krishna suggested that King yudhisthira keep the anantha padmanabha vratha for 14 years continuously. This will help him to get back his wealth and kingdom which he had lost in a gambling game with Kauravas.
On this fortunate day of the Bhadra month, Ananta Padmanabha answers the prayers of his followers. The most famous and well-known name of Lord Vishnu is Anantha Padmanabha.
Anantha’s name means “all-pervasive,” “beyond all bounds,” “everlasting,” and “for whom there is no limit by space, place, or time.” He lives throughout the entire cosmos and has many different forms. The definition of Padmanabha is “one with a navel like a lotus” or “one with a lotus in the navel.”
Older texts claim that Lord Krishna told Dharmaraja about the significance of Anantha Padmanabha Vratha. Dharmaraja did this Padmanabha puja on their behalf based on the counsel of Lord Krishna in the jungle.
The Bhavishyottara Purana mentions this Vrat Katha. Several blessings, including dharma, artha, kama, and moksha, would be bestowed upon the person who observes this Vrat with complete dedication and sincerity. Godhana is regarded as extremely sacred on this day.
As Nabhi represents the navel, Padma stands for the lotus. Padmanabha, therefore, describes the Lord as having a lotus in his navel. It represents Lord Vishnu, who was dozing off on the Ekarnava ocean when the universe was created. His navel sprouted a lotus, which brought about the birth of Lord Brahma.
After marrying the rishi kaundinya, Susheela (Daughter of Sage Sumanta and Dheeksha) performed the Anantha Padmanabha vratha on Bhadrapada shukla chaturdashi for 14 years after hearing from some women about this vrat.
Susheela performed the puja with the present, gave half of the fried wheat flour to Brahmanas, wore the red thread, and went with her husband to his ashram while thinking of Ananta Padmanabha after listening to the tale with focus, faith, and dedication. Anantha vrata’s influence allowed Kaundinya’s ashram to flourish and become beautiful. The Anantha vrata was anxiously anticipated by all of his relatives. Susheela has developed a brilliant aura.
One day Rishi Kaundinya threw the tied sacred thread from Susheela’s hand into the fire and Susheela then picked up the thread from the fire and washed it into the milk. This behaviour of rishi kaundinya makes his health and wealth worse. Later he got to know this is happening because of his behaviour toward Anantha Padmanabha Swamy.
Kaundinya goes forth to look for Anantha Padmanabha. He walks into the jungle like a madman. He sees a tree full of fruit but no one is eating it, two lakes next to one other with many flowers but no one is drinking from them, and then a cow. Everyone that he asks if they have seen Anantha responds that they have not, and a few days later he collapses. The Lord appears there in the guise of an elderly brahman, revives him, and then transports him to a palace where he is shown his four-armed form with Mahalakshmi. Kaundinya sings various stotras of worship for the Lord. He receives three boons from the Lord, including removal from poverty, following the path of dharma and mukti saubhagya.
After that rishi kaundinya returned to the home and performed the puja with devotion and dedication. He got the blessings of Lord Vishnu and lived life with happiness and wealth. The other sages also perform the anantha padmanabha vratha like Agastya, and kings like Janaka, Sagara, Dilipa, and Harishchandra have performed this vrata.
