The strictness of the fast depends on the devotee. The fast is broken in the evening after prayers. The puja and worship is done in the evening.

Most devotees make it a point to be present at a Shiva temple during this period.

For happiness in life have interesting and positive thoughts

For happiness in life, have interesting and positive thoughts.

Pleasure is like a bubble. Spiritual bliss is eternal. Choice is ours.

Only that happiness stays with us, which springs from our inward thoughts, emotions and ideas.

Be honest and have faith in your abilities. Things will fall in line soon.
