Ekadasi question

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Nooooooooo! You can't decide for yourself when to break fast! It may be always at some time in the morning, but there are specific times at which to break fast and failing to break fast in the specified time ruins the effect of your fasting according to scripture. There's a nice story in relation to this, the story of Ambarish Maharaja and Durvasa Muni.

You should consult a Vaisnava Calender for when to break fast, as the times vary. Usually you have roughly 3 hours to break fast, but other times you could have only 1 hour at a specific time. This first Ekadasi of the month may for example we had to break fast literally really fast as we had only 2 minutes! Please contact your local temple for a calender in your timeframe or check online.
