Sunrays: Nirjala Ekadashi

Ekadashi fast has a scientific explanation behind it. The atmospheric pressure is at its lowest on this day, making it the best time for fasting. Fasting cleanses the digestive system, purifies the blood, eliminates toxins and rests the digestive system. Fasting induces autophagy, a process wherein the body self-consumes its diseased cells. The health benefits are many, including blood pressure, sugar levels, cholesterol, anxiety, and more. Fasting intertwines humans? spiritual and biological needs, amalgamating spiritual and scientific practices.
