Our Daily Practice

Satya Shanti

Here is observed the daily practice of one who is fully committed to living in peace. Living in peace is living in peace with ones own self, with others, with your environment, with animals, with all life. This is a practice of true peace or 'Satya Shanti'.

One must diligently strive for this kind of life and it is fundamental that one renounces worldly activities of modern life. Renouncing is meant by living with non-attachment. One can still live in society but with a non-attached and indifferent way of being.

Also to walk this path of peace, it is important to purify the mind, because when the mind is pure, nothing can ever affect your peacefulness. To purify the mind is to adopt a pure diet of uncooked raw vegetables, fruits, berries, nuts, etc. This is because a diet with many toxins in it will change the behavior of the person. It changes the person mentally through the chemical imbalance and reaction that food has on us on a subtle level. Meat has a lot of toxins in it and you can observe meat eaters generally show symptoms of being irritable, annoyed easily, anger. Note that if you were to eat flour or yeast you can not digest it in that form; but if you cook it, it becomes bread, and now a once inedible food becomes edible. But naturally, it should not be inside you, and is harder for the digestive system.

The guide is 'If you cannot eat something without cooking it, then it shouldn't be put into the human digestive system'.

This is a daily practice one can adopt, though we are not perfect and will take time to adjust to some practices.
