Jain Sadhvi Saumyaji completes 1008 Ayambil fasts

Mumbai Apr 8 (UNI) Jain sadhvi Saumyaji Mahasatiji, revered as Maha Tapasvi, was felicitated here on Tuesday for completing 1008 Ayambil fasts.
Ayambil is a type of a Jaina external ‘taap’, scientifically designed to give benefits to mind, body and soul.
Ayambil is the penance of controlling taste. The fast of Ayambil is observed to attain spiritual upliftment through the achievement of victory over taste and to shed karmic bondage. Shri Navpad Ayambil Oli is a festival of 9 days, that comes twice in the year, celebrating and paying homage to the Navpad. It falls between the 7th day of the lunar month to the full moon day of the Chaitra (March/April) and Ashwina (October/November) months.
