'Navaratras are days to prepare your body to accept the new energies of the coming season. Most people lighten their bodies by fasting for nine days, only to make it heavy on the tenth day by rushing to restaurants and liquor shops. It is like you clean your house and after that you bring all the garbage back into the rooms.

Fasting or any such technique will bear fruit only if carried out with a sense of detachment, for the purpose of evolution. It is important to observe fasts in tandem with yogic practices to reap maximum benefit.'Yogi Ashwini
