Bhishma Panchak Begins
Bhishma Panchaka Vrat begins on the fifth last day (Kartika Suddha Ekadasi) of the Shukla Paksha during the Kartik month of the Hindu calendar. The Vrat gets its name from Bhishma of the Mahabharata. The fast is observed for five days which begins on the Ekadasi day by remembering Bhismadeva and ends on Purnima. During the fast, one should avoid eating grains for the whole month and consume just milk or water for the last five days. Bhishma Panchaka is also known as Vishnu Panchaka.
