During the period of fasting, one must not allow any kinds of thoughts regarding anger, lust or greed to enter into his mind. This fast is to purify both the mind and the body. The keeper of this fast should serve food to Brahmins on the Dwadashi tithi and this is how he should break his fast. The fasting person should stay awake at night singing hymns and worshipping Lord Vishnu.
