“Let your food contain as many vegetables as possible” says a Master of Wisdom. Men can gain health and vitality by assorting to food, containing vegetables and leaves (of-course cooked). Vegetables exist in the nature’s kingdom to increase the vitality. It is possible to cure all ailments by counterpoising the vitality. Certain plants exist as reservoirs of Prāna. Men should find ways and means to gain access to these reservoirs of Prāna. In this Aquarian age where the mass of matter is being shed in favor of delicate matter, adapting to vegetables as food is considered wise.
It is about time that man comes out of all animal food, as also animal products such as milk, yogurt, butter, ghee, and even products of milk such as cheese, sweets, and so on. Anything other than plants tends the human forms heavy and tensed.
Men of wisdom even consider getting out of roots and nuts, pulses and cereals. The increase in diabetes, arthritis, hypertension, blood pressure, heart sicknesses and dementia are all due to man’s clinging to foods heavier than the need of the hour.
Aquarian age lifts up energies and tends everything airy. The food habits also have to be lighter, supple and subtle. Men cannot think of heavy food, since they are tending to work more with the brain than with the body of limbs. There is less and less use of physical body and more and more use of the brain. Brain is by far more electrical and its filaments are delicate. To enable it to function at its optimum, one should not think of loading it with heavy food such as animal food, animal products, pulses or even cereals. One should get away from all food that tends to be heavy including bread and butter. Instead they should replace such heavy food with exposure to the golden light of the sun, inhalation of oxygen, drinking fresh waters, fruit juices, and eating vegetables.
A sea change happens in health, if one can gradually shift from his old habits of eating to the new way, which is gently finding its expression. Vegan diet which is tending to be popular in the West is not new in the East. There are communities in the East who abstain from milk products and meat from centuries. Vegetarianism is growing. Vegetarianism ultimately leads to eat more vegetables, fruits and leaves besides water. This is the future way to walk out of the ocean of sicknesses, which are threatening the humanity at large. Let this be pondered on.
