What is the correct way of fasting? I am a working woman and I started to fast on mondays and saturdays for my remarriage as per your advice. But I am confused about the way of fasting.Fasting as per Hindu Religion is What? Eating nothing including water or fruits,milk can be taken during fasting. Pls.clarrify.
You should do fast for atleast 16 Mondays, Eat one time food without Onion and Garlic , but can take fruits and Milk, Sabudana salt or sweet. Dal , Roti , Rice Only once. During Udyapan give food, fruits, cloth and white sweet like kheer and some dakshana to the local Pandit.
Udyapan is the time when you end your fast. After keeping a fast say for 16 Weeks then on the 17th week you do the Udyapan, in which you make the things appropriate for the fast and give to a pandit and seek his blessings for early fulfillment of desires. So if you do 16 Mondays fast then on 17th Monday you do the Udyapan to complete the fast. You may speak with a local pandit in a closeby temple who will tell you exactly the procedure that you are supposed to follow. Visit temple every Mondays it will bring you enternal happiness and keep you relaxed. You should go and thank God for all His Kindness and seek His Blessings.
