Sravana Vratham fasting is observed by Vaishnava devotees. It is quite similar to Ekadasi fast. Here is a brief description of Sravana Vratham Procedure. The fast is observed monthly on the Sravana Nakshatram day.

The fasting is for a whole day from sunrise to next day sunrise – this is only for healthy people.

One should try to observe silence while observing the Vratham.

Importance should be given to meditation.

The two important prayers that should be chanted on the day are Sri Vishnu Sahasranamam or Pancha Sooktham.
