Ram Navami Vrat


The followers of Lord Rama would observe a whole-day fast on the festival of Ram Navami. The fast is also called vrat. Although it is not mandatory to observe a waterless fast (nirahar vrat), many people observe a stringent fast, when they would not drink a drop of water until midnight, when they break the fast. On the other hand, those who prefer to follow a particular diet for the fast, are recommended to eat certain foodstuffs including potatoes made in any form without haldi (turmeric), garlic, ginger or onion. Sendha namak (rock salt) is used for the preparation of food for Rama Navami fast. While on a fast, the person can also eat curd, milk, tea, coffee, fruits and root vegetanbles..
