    Shiv ji bless ol ! !

  134. Manmeet says:

    Can we take tea during our fast. I have been taking it in all my fasts until now…. just want to confirm

    • naveen.sanagala says:

      Yes.. of course.. The main reason about fasting on vrat, puja, and festivals is to ….. remember God each moment.. If we fed ourselves with lots of food… we will not have any time to remember God.. To chant and pray the Lord, we need to observe fast… Until its matter of your capacity, you can do fasting… 🙂
