Hindus believe it is not easy to unceasingly pursue the path of spirituality in ones daily life. Therefore a worshiper must strive to impose restrains on to get the mind focused. And one form of restraint is fasting. However, fasting is not only a part of worship, but a great instrument for selfdiscipline too. It is a training of the mind and the body to endure and harden up against all hardships, to persevere under difficulties and not give up.
