Different websites, different rules are all over internet.
Common rules are of fasting. But what are the scripture backed specific rules??
Like should every Ekadashi be Nirjala Ekadashi or only Jyeshta Shukla Ekadashi be Nirjala Ekadashi? If so can you drink water on other Ekadashis? There are websites which says eating fruits is ok. What about sleep and sex during Ekadashi? Are there hierarchies in different Ekadashis??
Also the breaking of fast or parana time needs some clarity. Its said you shouldn't do it on first quarter of dwadashi callerd Hari Vasara. It can also not be done on noon. So its must be either before 8:30 am or in the evening. But is this backed by scripture? What are the proper rules for parana?
So please answer with rules for Ekadashi fasting and breaking fast on Dwadashi backed by authentic scripture
