    I have observed the fasting practice of His Majesty Lord Jesus Christ, Holy Prophet Muhammad, Prophet Baha’u’lah and the Great Sage Gatama Buddha and meditations for over 44 years. The greatest and the most spiritually beneficial has been the Fast of 40 Days and Night existing on nothing but H20 and a handful of raisins and a date. This site is good and informative, much success.
