Pancha : Spirituality/Meaning

For me, this was not a secular cleanse but a three week spiritual retreat in which I used the practice of modifying my diet to help me connect with the Great Beyond. Further, when I experienced discomfort during the cleanse, I ascribed meaning to it as moving me towards the desired ends of greater health and spiritual connection. Simply beginning my day with the prayer salutations and a call for blessing and guidance during my day by the Divine brought a powerful shift in how I viewed the world and the challenges I faced. I continue to start my day in this manner as a result.
