Ekadashi Parana Times 2016/2017: Ekadashi Fast Breaking Times for 2016/2017

As you all know that on Ekadashi, devotees of Lord Vishnu and especially Vaishnava’s observe a strict fast known as Ekadashi Vrat or Ekadashi Upvaas.

This fast is kept from sunrise of Ekadashi day to sunrise of the next day and the fast is broken eating food during the parana time.

There are certain rules which are followed for doing the parana and hence one should break the fast during parana time only.

These rules are bit different for Vaishnava community and others and hence the parana times vary and also at times Ekadashi dates also vary.

It is necessary to do Parana within Dwadashi Tithi unless Dwadashi is over before sunrise. Not doing Parana within Dwadashi is similar to an offence.

Parana should not be done during Hari Vasara. Hari Vasara is first one fourth duration of Dwadashi Tithi. Sometimes the Dwadashi Tithi ends soon after the sunrise, in that case the parana time is very short.

One should avoid breaking the fast during Madhyahna. If due to some reasons one is not able to break the fast during Pratahkal then one should do it after Madhyahna.

If you are keeping Ekadashi fast then i am sure you might be searching for Ekadashi Vrat Parana Times. Find below Ekadashi Vrata Parana Times for 2016 and 2017.
