Prabodhini Ekadashi is also known as Dev Uthani Ekadashi and Devutthana Ekadashi. 
Parana means breaking the fast. Ekadashi Parana is done after sunrise on next day of Ekadashi fast. It is necessary to do Parana within Dwadashi Tithi unless Dwadashi is over before sunrise. Not doing Parana within Dwadashi is similar to an offence. 
Parana should not be done during Hari Vasara. One should wait for Hari Vasara to get over before breaking the fast. Hari Vasara is first one fourth duration of Dwadashi Tithi. The most preferred time to break the fast is Pratahkal. One should avoid breaking the fast during Madhyana. If due to some reasons one is not able to break the fast during Pratahkal then one should do it after Madhyana. 
Bhrahma has said “Those who eat once on Devutthana Ekadashi day will destroy their sins for past one birth; those who do not eat at all will destroy their sins for previous seven births. Tulsi Vivah is conducted on the next day of Devutthana Ekadashi.
Devuthni/ Prabodhini Ekadashi
Lord Shri Krishna said :"Hey Arjun, now I will tell you a story related to the liberating Ekadashi of Kartik Shukla pash named "Prabodhini Ekadashi",
which is a dialogue between Brahmaji and Naradji.Once Naaradji asked to Brahmaji :"Hey father, what is the effect of keeping the fast of Prabodhini Ekadashi? please let me know."
Brahmaji spoke :"Hey son, a thing which is very difficult to attain can be attained by Prabodhini Ekadashi's fast. By keeping this fast so many wrong karmas done in the 
previous births are destroyed within seconds.Hey son, those who do even very little good karma during this day, even those are converted into big mountains.Who keeps this fast, his 
ancestors attain Vaikuntha.The crime of killing the Brahmins is also destroyed by keeping this fast and staying awake during the night.
"Hey Naarad, humans must keep this fast for pleasing Lord Vishnu.Aperson who keeps the fast of Ekadashi,he becomes prosperous,Yogi, ascetic, master of his senses as Ekadashi
is very dear to Lord Vishnu."
" During this day a person who does to please the Lord charity, meditation,yagna{chanting the holy names is also a I am the japa yagna amongst all the yagnas...SrimadbhagwadGita}They attain a good karma that can not be destroyed."
"Hence Naarad, you must also worship Lod Vishnu in the right way.On this Ekadashi, one must wake up in the time of Brahma muhurat{early morning before sunrise}
and should pledge for the fast and worship the Lord.In the night time one should stay awake and spend the night singing, doing kirtan,dancing nearby the Lord."
"On the day of Prabodhini Ekadashi, Lord should be worshiped with incense,flowers etc, and should give Arghaya to the Lord.The effect of this is billion times more than
doing charity and pilgrimages."
"Those who with the rose flowers, Bakul and Ashok flowers, Kaner flowers red and white,Duurvadal, Champak flowers, Shami leaves worship Lord, they are liberated from this world.
Hence one should worship the lord during the night and in the morning time after having a bath,one should pray to the lord and worship his Guruji and offer food to the pious Brahmins and hence end his fast this way"
"Those who pledge for leaving or sacrificing some particular thing during these 4 months, they must start doing the same right from this day.Those who keep this fast with the right process, they attain unlimited pleassures and attain heaven after their lives."
