Bhadrapada Suddha Chaturdashi is called Anant Chaturdashi. On the day of Anant Chaturdashi, we have Ganesh Visarjan on a large scale. So we remember this day as the day of immersion. But this day is not only for immersion but on this day Anant means Vishnu worship and fast to Anant. The duration of this fast is fourteen years. This fast is performed by worshiping a silk thread with fourteen knots as infinity for fourteen years continuously so that the calamities that have befallen us will be removed and we will regain glory.
Not everyone has to do this fast of Anant Chaturdashi. If one preaches or finds the thread of infinity easily, one takes this vow and then it continues uninterruptedly in the family. It is said that the Pandavas had to suffer 12 years of exile and one year of exile after defeating the Dyutas. Lord Krishna had preached to do an eternal fast to get rid of this crisis.
