Role of Diet in Meditation
Have you ever had one of these days where you sit to meditate, but you feel sleepy. Let’s look at how food plays an important role in meditation. Consciousness is very much important that is maintained whilst preparing and eating food each day. You Are What You eat. Once upon a time in India, there lived three friends, Sattva, Rajas, and Tamas. They were very close to each other but very different in nature.Tamas was inclined to rest but easily fall into laziness. He would lie all day, lethargic, and did not work. But he was very active at feeding time; he ate all kinds of meat and heavy food. Rajas was focused on action, but he was very restless, withmany thoughts in his mind and many tasks in his hands at the same time. With regard to food, he was a fan of hot and spicy foods, and sweets made with a lot of sugar.The wisest among them was Sattva. He was a natural balance between calm and enthusiasm. He was extremely careful with his diet and ate only what was necessary for his body. Freshly cooked green vegetables and grains and fruits and juices were part of his main diet. So he remained healthy, light, and energetic throughout the day (unlike his friend Tamas), and was also able to think clearly and logically. Which of the three friends do you like and who among them would you like to be best friends with? Well, all three are already part of your life, your friends—Tamas helps you have good sleep at night, Rajas keeps you active during the day, and Sattva keeps your energy high. But of the three, make Sattva your best friend so you can accept his qualities in your life. The higher the Sattva, the deeper your meditation. Choose your food wisely and clear the way for a blissful meditation experience.
Choose Your Diet According to Your Prakriti (Vata, Pitta or Kapha)Each body type has a unique natural constitution composed of vata, pitta, and kapha. Knowing which of these prakriti you are can help you change your eating habits to stay healthy and balanced, and also have deeper meditation.
