Yogic thought for the day: on food, Swami Sivananda

 "Man eats too much. This is admitted by all. Most of your diseases are due to over-eating. Your kind mother and grandmother have taught you over-eating from your childhood through their affection and indulgence. Even when you are not hungry you try to stuff your stomach by taking recourse to spices, chutneys, pickles. It is your tongue that deludes you and does too much havoc." Swami Sivananda, in his book `Health and Diet', published by Divine Life Society.

Ramana Maharshi used to share with all devotees the food offerings brought to him and the devotees thronged for a share of it. He used to have castor oil once a month and shared it too with the devotees. Many devotees used to avoid such days.
