Acharya Tulsi - A Peacemaker Par Excellence: Tapasya

Published: 08.05.2013
Tapasya (complete abstinence from food and sometimes also from water)

Tapasya dates from ancient days in the Jain tradition. The Terapanth Dharm Sangh has a creditable record of long and rigor­ous tapasya, i.e. completion of the fourth phase of langusingh nikridit tap, bhadrotar tap, mahabhadrotar tap, ayambil's terahmasi (eating only one thing a day continuously for 13 months), a twelve­month-long fast depending only on achh (the water obtained after straining the boiled whey).
