Abstract

A REVIEW ON ROLE AND IMPORTANCE OF YOGIC DIET

Varsha*, Anita Sharma and Sasmita Tripathy

ABSTRACT

Yogic diet is the wholly conductive to the practice of yoga & spiritual progress. This diet can also be called lacto-vegetarian, which means that it is made up of non-animal foods with the exceptions of dairy items and honey. Diet has intimate connection with the mind. Diet is of three kinds viz, sattvic diet, rajasic diet & tamasic diet. Sattvic diet is a diet based on foods in Ayurveda & Yoga literature that contain the quality (guna) sattva. Sattvic food is the purest diet; it nourishes the body & maintains a peaceful state. This calm & purifies the mind, at its maximum potential. Food play an important part in meditation. For purposes of meditation, the food should be light, nutritions & sattvic.Sattvic foods form an ideal diet, keeping the body nourished while being easy to digest. They create new energy, clarity and calm mind, enabling us to use all our mental, physical & spiritual abilities. Rajasic or stimulating diet tends to raise level of physical activity & leads to emotional upsurges & are detrimental in the long term. They overstimulate the mind & excite the passions. Tamasic diet that mostly consists of foods that are tamasic in nature on can increase the tama guna. Tamasic meaning that they may cause certain potentially harmful mental & physical conditions to occur. Mitahara is a yogic virtue that centers on awareness while consuming food and drink, and the effects that nutrition and overconsumption have on the mind and body. Many yogis that practice a sattvic diet also implement the principle of mitahara by mindfully eating in moderation.

Keywords: Yogic diet, Sattvic diet, Rajasic diet, Tamasic diets, mitahara.
