Jayapatākā Swami: Bhīṣma Pañcaka starts at the next Ekādaśī. It goes to the full-moon day. We break the fast after dark on full moon. My doctor said I can come sometimes to the Gītā Bhavan and take Bhīṣma Pañcaka with the devotees. The Hari-Bhakti-Vilāsa recommends that we do the Bhīṣma-Pañcaka and if we do Bhīṣma-Pañcaka, we get unlimited spiritual credit. If the devotees go to the Ganges, Bhīṣmadeva is the son of the Ganges, then the Ganges will give blessings. I don’t know if I will be able to go to the Ganges, but I will go to the Gītā Bhavan.
