Method and rules of Halchhath fast

According to Hindu belief, some things should be taken special care of during Halchhath fast.

If possible, on Hal Shashthi fast, a person should do Datun of Mahua.

Halashasti fast is also broken with Mahua, Passover rice and buffalo milk. Buffalo milk is especially used during Halashasti fast.

Consumption of cow's milk or things made from it is prohibited during Halchhath fast. In such a situation, do not use it even by mistake today.

During Halchhath Vrat, plowing with plow does not consume any food item or fruit etc.

Plow is worshiped on the day of Hal Shashti Vrat and on this day the plow is not driven on the ground. There is also a tradition of worshiping the bull along with the plow on the Halchhath fast.

Those who wish to get the virtuous fruit of Halchhath fast should not disturb bullocks and any other animal today.
