Guru Maharaj: So we know that in the Bhīṣma Pañcaka, there are three fasts recommended. That one can do the pañcagavya, or second, fruits and roots or, third is the haviśyanna. Which included fruits and roots and some milk products and some grains. But I was reading that tomorrow is the Parama Ekādaśī. And that starting from the evening we should chant and dance the Hare Kṛṣṇa mahā-mantra in ecstasy, and if possible, stay awake the whole night, chanting. But at least we all could chant in the evening. And as far as the five day fast after Ekādaśī, it says fast up to your capacity. Maybe you can give up something during the five days. Don’t do something which would impede your service completely. I was asked about how to break the fast of the Puruṣottama month. I read in the śāstra that we should break the fast on the 14th day, so I will post the details.
