Srila Prabhupada on fasting on Vamana Dvadasi

The next important day is on the 26th, no, 12th September, 12th September, 1970, the advent day of Sri Jiva Gosvami Prabhu. (pause) On that day there are three functions. First of all, Ekadasi, a special Ekadasi called Parsvaika Ekadasi. Then on that day, actually, Ekadasi according to calendar, Ekadasi was to be observed on the 11th September, but because the next day is Vamana Dvadasi.... Vamana Dvadasi means the advent of Lord Vamanadeva. Therefore we have fast., Ekadasi fasting, and we observe two fastings in one day, Ekadasi and Vamanadeva, Vamana Dvadasi. The same process as we observe Ekadasi, and the evening there should be a meeting discussing on the life and work of Srila Jiva Gosvami. He is one of the very important acaryas in our sampradaya, so especially his Sandarbhas should be discussed.
