WAY OF OBSERVING FAST OR VARUT ON MERI MAIYA NAVRATRAS AND ON OTHER MERI MAIYA FESTIVALS .....
Having Fast or Varut of Meri Maiya is the easiest I suppose. I know Meri Maiya is happy, if we just have one time meal in a day for Meri Maiya Fast or Varut and a little Puja and Aradhna of Meri Maiya. Meri Maiya has no compulsion of any type for observing HER Fast or Varut .....
To observe Fast or Varut during Meri Maiya Navratras and on Meri Maiya Asthmi days, eat one meal a day and on one sitting. Your food should be cooked without onions and garlic and should be pure vegetarian meal. I would request you to Please, First offer Prayers and food to Meri Maiya and then eat the meal as Prasad.
Prem Se Bollo "JAI MATA DI" before starting your meal and after finishing the meal. If its possible, Please have your meal after sunset. (If the time after sunset is not possible, then any other time is also fine)
I am sorry, I know Meri Maiya likes us to be simple and clear in whatever we do ..... and consistent of what we have been doing .....
During the rest of the day, fruits, juices, milk and kheer could be taken. (However, some Meri Maiya bhakts keep fast for all the days by consuming only fruits or liquids. This is purely Meri Maiya bhakts choice and offering to the Great Meri Maiya Vaishnodevi.)
Observing Fast or Varut for Meri Maiya is great but if you can't for some personal reasons, there is no problem ..... Meri Maiya knows all ..... Meri Maiya is very Kind Hearted .....
Please remember, it is not a compulsion to keep Fast or Varut for Meri Maiya bhakts who have health problems, medical reasons or for any other problems. Meri Maiya is All-Knowing and Kind and Showers HER blessings on all HER bhakts.
Performing Meri Maiya Puja is the easiest of all. Just fold your hands and say "Jai Mata Di" to Meri Maiya Vaishnodevi .....

If possible, feed a little adolescent girl (Kunjka) daily or feed 9 Kunjkayen on the last day of fasting of Meri Maiya Navratras in Love to Meri Maiya.
