Parama Ekadashi fast is observed to seek the blessings of Lord Vishnu. Parma Ekadashi fast falls during Adhikamas. Adhik Maas is also known as Adhi Maas, Mal Maas and Purushottam Maas. The Ekadashi that falls in the Krishna Paksha of Adhikamas is called Parama Ekadashi.

The fast of Ekadashi is the fast that destroys all sins and gives all the desired fruits. The fasting of Ekadashi is especially dear to Lord Vishnu. This fast is going to give salvation to any person of the society like Brahmin, Kshatriya, Vaishya, Shudra and woman - whoever observes this fast with devotion. It provides humans with all their desired things.

Waking up early in the morning on Ekadashi, worshiping Lord Vishnu with scent, flowers, etc., after taking bath and defecation, say as follows-

ēkādaśyaṁ nirāhāraḥ sthitavāhanatrādyahaṁ parēhaṇī.
Puṇḍarīkākṣācyā āśrayānē bhōkṣyāmī maraṇa pāvalā.

Meaning - Kamalnayan Achyut! On Taj Ekadashi, I will eat food on the second day after fasting. You are my refuge.

Paran means breaking the fast. Ekadashi is celebrated after sunrise on the next day of Ekadashi fast. It is necessary to do Parana within Dwadashi Tithi unless Dwadashi ends before sunrise. Not doing Parana on the day of Dwadashi is like a crime.
