Fasting "Days of Sorrow and Lamentation" lasts from March 16 (in a leap year - from March 15) to March 20, when the Sun is at 26-30 degrees Pisces. These are the last days of the year, the time of completion and summing up, the spiritual and physical purification of a person before entering the New Year.
Each day is associated with grief and purification of one of the five races of the Earth.
The first day - the blue race, its part of the world - Antarctica - south. The ancestors of the Turanian and Semitic peoples brought knowledge of numbers, the prototype of all sciences. They pray, turning to the south, asking for forgiveness of the sins of the blue race.
