Periyava Golden Quotes-753

Jaya Jaya Sankara Hara Hara Sankara – Starting today we are going to see an EXTREMELY IMPORTANT series on how to uplift ourselves. When someone talks about Aacharam we think about doing Snanam regularly, doing Sandhyavandanam.Nithya karma anushatanams, Puja, Wearing panchakacham, Sporting Pundram/Shika, etc. However Sri Periyava says, there is something greater than that and sets the foundation for all. It is the food we eat. At the end of the series I’m sure we all we will be more enlightened in terms of what we eat, where we eat, how it comes from, etc. These sets of quotes don’t deal with Philosophy and Athma. It is downright very practical. Sri Periyava dwells so much into the finer points of the food that we will be stunned by his attention to detail and also learn some invaluable lessons in the process.

Many Jaya Jaya Sankara to our sathsang seva volunteer who wish to remain anonymous for the translation. Rama Rama

அன்னம் என்பதில் ப்ரோடீன், கார்போஹைட்ரேட், வைடமின் முதலியன மட்டும் இல்லை. அதைச் சமைத்தவர், தான்யமாகவும் பச்சைக் காய்கறியாகவும் அதை விலைக்கோ தானமாகவோ கொடுத்தவர், அதைப் பயிர் பண்ணியவர் ஆகியவர்களுடைய குணதோஷங்களும் அந்த அன்னத்தில் ஸூக்ஷ்மமாக டெபாஸிட் ஆகி, சாப்பிடுகிறவனுக்குள் போகிறது. இவர்கள் தோஷமுடையாவர்களாயிருந்தால் சாப்பிடுகிறவனையும் அந்த தோஷம் தொற்றிக்கொள்ளும். இதுதான் அன்ன தோஷம் என்பது. – ஜகத்குரு ஸ்ரீ சந்திரசேகரேந்திர சரஸ்வதி ஸ்வாமிகள்

Food (Annam) is not made up only of Proteins, Carbohydrates, and Vitamins. All the qualities and characteristics of the persons who cooked it, the merchant who sold the ingredients and also the individual who cultivated the ingredients, will be subtly deposited into the food and gets ingested by the person who eats it. If these people’s thoughts are not pure, it affects the person who eats the food. This is called ‘Anna Dosham’ (Food Defect). – Jagadguru Sri Chandrasekharendra Saraswathi Swamigal
