Yogic Diet  - Satvik fresh diet

Yogic Diet:

A diet that is wholly conducive to the practice of yoga is called Yogic Diet. Diet has an intimate connection with the mind. Mind is formed from the subtlest portion of the essence of the food.

One's inner nature becomes purified by the purity of the food. Purity of the inner nature leads to memory of the Slef and Self-Realisation.

Diet is of three kinds: Satvic (pure), Rajasic (over stimulating), and Tamasic (purified).

Onion, Garlic, Chilli, meat, egg and those food that produce excess heat in the body are considered to be Rajasic and Tamasic foods. These food will create qualities that are not suitable for a yogic life.

Raw vegetables, fruits, cereals, dall. cooked vegetable with a little of no spice are all called yogic foods. These foods keep oneself Satvic - those who consume these food will have peace of mind and can lead a serene yogic life. Where you need your brain to work consume yogic food. If you are physical labourer the Rajasic food may be consumed. Any intoxicating drink or food is not yogic in quality.
