Importance of Food.
The exchange of power in life goes on continuously as a sequence. One to the second and the third to the rest are formed. We can see this sequence of creation in our own body. There is a saying- ‘Just like food, like how mind. ‘Our body is made by the food we eat. It is also considered by modern medicine. Indian knowledge is above this.
Emotion is also important along with food; Because it satisfies the eater’s mind. The food is made with which emotion, with which emotion and affection, with which environment and emotion food is taken, etc. things have a direct effect on the mind.
A person performs actions to fulfill the desires of the mind. Desire cannot be born of the will of the person. To fulfill or not to do is the will of the person. When desire arises from some other power and it drives our life, then we automatically become instruments. Our system of intelligence decides, plans and directs the body accordingly. He gets involved in body work.
This means that mind is king, intellect and body are servants. Therefore, empowering the mind, which is our identity, is our first religion, so that our identity also remains the same. Its simplest and main route is food. Food is the first expression of every joy in Indian culture. From birth, marriage etc. to life, why not have any other expectation ahead of food, feast, party? Because life-force is associated with it. This makes the mind flourish. The environment also contributes to this.
Food reaches the body and makes juice. Blood, flesh, fennel, marrow, bone and semen are made from juice. The one who survives gets out as feces and urine. Here the bulk construction work ends.
The semen is further converted into energy, this is what makes a person’s mind. This is the ‘ooze’ of the face. This becomes the identity of personality. The importance of Brahmacharya should also be understood in this context. The qualities of food – Sattva, Raja, Tama become important parts of our personality. Therefore, food is important from every point of view.
