Please let me know when Ekadashi fasting is to be observed? If the tithi is spread between two days, do we need to consider the Ekadashi tithi that is in Sunrise time or the day which has maximum time of Ekdashi tithi and very less on the next day may be till 11.00 am like the coming one in this month on 20th Jan? Thank you.

In Vedic calendar when this happens (a thithi is spread on two days), it is logical to take the day which has the longest thithi period. This means on a Tuesday where the Ekadesi period is 14 hours in the day time and only 6 hours on the next day, Wednesday, then the Tuesday is taken into account.

This holds the same for festivals, celebrating brithdays on Nakshathram (star) day.
