The Vaisnava Lunar Calendar  

ISKCON Temple’s follow the traditional lunar calendar, which operates on 15 day lunar cycles. Starting with the new-moon (Pratipat), moving through the waxing cycle when the moon becomes fuller, until the full-moon (Purnima), and through the waning cycle back to the new-moon. On the eleventh day of each cycle ‘Ekadasi’ is observed, where we fast from grains and beans for the day, and the twelfth day (Dvadasi), the fast is broken at a specified time. Special fasting days are also observed for the appearance and disappearance of various incarnations and acharyas, broken either at midday or in the evening with a feast.
