Have you heard of Gunaratna Samvatsar Tapascharya? Gunaratna Samvatsar is recognized as the biggest ever Tapascharya undertaken in the entire Jain religion. Under this, a person does not touch the food for 377 days. Food intake is done only for 72 days in the form of beverages.
The last person who decided to practice this was a Jain monk, Hansratnavijayji Maharaj Saheb. And now Sadhvi Gunaratna Shreeji Maharaj, 57, became the first Sadhvi to take this initiative. She survived 458 days of the fast and took her Samadhi on December 29, 2017, at 7:30 am.
