The 36-hour Nirjala fast started on
Devotees worshipped Lord Bhaskar and performed Kharna on Thursday evening. The devotees’ fasting of 36 hours of waterless fasting began with the Khrana. People kept coming to the fasting house till late at night to collect the famous Kharna prasad, jaggery kheer, and ghee-greased bread.
They will offer prayers to the setting sun after reaching numerous reservoirs, including the Chhathvrati river and ponds, on Friday evening. Only after offering prayers to the rising sun on the fourth day of the celebration, Saturday morning, will the devotees’ fast be broken. After that, the fast will be broken by eating and drinking again.
