On Krishna Janmashtami, fasting is encouraged but subject to certain guidelines. After sunrise on the following day, the fasting period for Janmashtami can begin, but only after no grains have been consumed during that time. Ekadashi fasting regulations will be followed. Parana, or breaking the fast, needs to happen at the correct moment. When the fasting period for Krishna Janmashtami is complete, the Parana is celebrated the next morning, once Ashtami Tithi and Rohini Nakshatra have passed. When either Ashtami Tithi or Rohini Nakshatra ends before sunset, the fast is broken.
