Dvadasi — Break fast 05:28 - 10:01 (Local Time), Srila Vrindavana Dasa Thakura - Appearance

Break fast 05:28 - 10:01 (Local Time)

Dvadasi is the twelfth day of the waning or waxing moon (dva, "two," dasi, "tenth"). In the Vedic, lunar calendar, dvadasi follows Ekadasi, a day customarily set aside for exclusive focus on spiritual activity and fasting—at least from grains and beans. Fasting for Ekadasi is considered incomplete unless one breaks fast at the proper time the following day, dvadasi. These times are provided here.


Vrindavana Dasa Thakura was the author of Sri Chaitanya Bhagavata, a biography of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. He is considered the manifest Vyasadeva (editor of the Vedas) during Mahaprabhu's pastimes. He was born shortly after the disappearance of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. At the age of twenty, he accepted formal initiation from Nityananda Prabhu. It was on Lord Nityananda's order that he wrote Sri Chaitanya Bhagavata.
