  1. 1. ಏಕಾದಶಿಯ ದಿನದಂದು ಸರ್ಯೋದಕ್ಕೆ ಮುಂಚೆ ನೀರು ಕುಡಿಯ ಬಹುದ ?
    2. ದ್ವಾದಶದ ಸೂರ್ಯೋದಯ ಆದ ಮೇಲೆಯೇ ಸ್ನಾನ ಪೂಜೆ ಮುಗಿಸಿದ ಮೇಲೆ ನೀರು ಕುಡಿಯ ಬೇಕ?🙏


  2. For tasting consider the day whose sunrise falls within the ekafasu period and fast on that day only

    • For fasting, consider the day whose sunrise falls within the ekadasi period. Fast on that day even if ekadasi ends after few minutes of the sunrise. Take the local time of your region fir this consideration.

  3. As we know it start from day1 to day 2, so when should we faste in day1 or day 2 or from start time of day1 to end time2?
