Celebrations and Rituals:

The rising Sun indicates the start of the Parasuram Dwadasi. Parasuram Dwadasi Vrat begins at sunrise and ends on the next day after sunrise. The fasting begins after taking a bath. An idol of Lord Parshuram is offered flowers, ornaments, prasad and other puja material related to Lord Vishnu. In some parts of the country, the idol of Parshuram is placed inside a pot of water. Those who observe the fast remain awake during the night. It is believed that observing Parashuram Dwadashi Vrata will fulfil wishes and one will attain salvation. Chanting Vishnu Sahastranam stotra is considered auspicious. An ardent devotee of Parashuramwill continues to perform his or her fast until the next morning, remaining awake the entire night.
