Proper Diet

Correct nutrition and diet gives proper fuel for the body and the mind without creating toxins and digestive problems.  Optimum utilization of food, air, water and sunlight is essential.

There is medical evidence that a balanced vegetarian diet is extremely healthy and provides everything the body needs.  The Yogic vegetarian diet is sattvic (pure), and helps to calm the mind, and to reveal the spirit as well as nourish the body.
