dc.abstract.en Reaching the highest abode (paramapada) of the beloved god is one of the goals of the followers of Hindu traditions. Though this abode is a sphere of sacred, unimaginable and unattainable, nevertheless god gives the chance to reach it – it can be acquired due to the practice leading to emancipation. This possibility is described in some religious texts, which we would like to refer to. But it is also possible to visit an earthly simulacrum of this highest abode in some particular, holy places. In the South Indian context god Viṣṇu gives the chance to arrive to Vaikuṇṭha on earth and to experience the presence of god in a particular holy place at the bank of the eternal Kāverī. But even while visiting other Vaiṣṇava sites, the devotee is able to cross the boundary between profane and sacred and enter Vaikuṇṭha through the "Vaikuṇṭha door" in a particular moment of the year. In my paper I would like to discuss these different ways of "travelling" to the highest abode of Viṣṇu, crossing its boundaries and experiencing its holiness and uniqueness. pl
