CHICAGO: Acharya Hans Ratna Maharaj Saheb appears setting a new record all the time with his 180-days fasting- a feat that he has achieved for the fifth time over the past few years.

He is a gem of rigorous fasting.  As it is considered very important for the spiritual discipline and development. It involves renunciation of food to maintain self-control and self-discipline to reach self -realization and the ultimate goal of Moksha or spiritual liberation.

To conquer one’s soul one has to first conquer one’s own physical mind and body.
