Doing fast for mental peace (hEALTH maNTRA- 03) bLOG – 29

In last blog we discussed that doing fast /upwas keeps us healthy.

But if fast is not done properly then instead of health we land up in diseases.

So let us understand first “What is the real meaning of word “Upwas”ie fasting ?

Upwaas means….Up – Inside and Vaas-Going

Upvaas means “Going inside ourself and meditating on internal power/God/Aatma.

Almost all the upvaas of the year come in these four rainy months of CHATURMAAS.


Because science was told in the form of dharma for everyone to follow and remain healthy.

Dharma says that Lord Vishnu goes in deep “Yognidra”in these four months.

It symbolically initiates us to start doing meditation.

In ancient days , in rainy season not much of outside work used to be there for people so sitting at home people would become idle and will eat more and fall sick or become lazy.

To avoid this, it was told by Dharma that do fasting and meditation.

As fasting keeps us alert and healthy and thus helps in meditation.

Following dharma people started doing upvaas and remained healthy as well achieved mental peace by meditating.

So the actual motto behind fasting was to achieve mind peace through meditation but we don’t do all this during fasting .

We just hurriedly  visit temple ,take  darshan and eat heavy upwaas varieties.

We neither meditate in house nor in temple .

So with time real motto of upwaas is forgotten.

Let us revive the science behind fasting .

On the day of fast, let’s start meditating for sometime, so gradually by the end of Chaturmaas , by meditating with fasting , we would achieve fruits of mental peace.

So hope you fast doing upwaas with meditation in this chaturmaas and achieve MENTAL PEACE.

In our next blog, we will discuss how to do Upwaas / Fasting without falling sick.
