Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh I have heard from people that health, diet, diesease is mentioned in both the Guru Granth Sahib Ji and Dasam Granth Sahib Ji. Does anyone have any further information, it would be interesting to know? I know time and time again its mentioned in Guru Granth Sahib Ji to sleep little and also eat little but is there anything else? What is the best guide to health and diet so we can ensure that our body is upkept to the best degree which is important for meditation? Also is there anything/any advice that sant/mahapurshs have given on this topic? Would appreciate any insight. Thanks
ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕਾ ਖਾਲਸਾ ।। ਵਾਹਿਗੁਰੂ ਜੀ ਕੀ ਫਤਹਿ ।। Sangat ji, I'm not sure if this has been discussed before. I wasn't able to find a discussion related to this. What are your views when it comes to what types of food to eat. One thing that I wonder is why does spice tolerance go down a lot of the time when your bhagti is going well. ਸਿਰੀਰਾਗੁ ਮਹਲਾ ੧ ॥ Siree Raag, First Mehl: ਸਭਿ ਰਸ ਮਿਠੇ ਮੰਨਿਐ ਸੁਣਿਐ ਸਾਲੋਣੇ ॥ Believing, all tastes are sweet. Hearing, the salty flavors are tasted; ਖਟ ਤੁਰਸੀ ਮੁਖਿ ਬੋਲਣਾ ਮਾਰਣ ਨਾਦ ਕੀਏ ॥ chanting with one's mouth, the spicy flavors are savored. All these spices have been made from the Sound-current of the Naad. ਛਤੀਹ ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਭਾਉ ਏਕੁ ਜਾ ਕਉ ਨਦਰਿ ਕਰੇਇ ॥੧॥ The thirty-six flavors of ambrosial nectar are in the Love of the One Lord; they are tasted only by one who is blessed by His Glance of Grace. ||1|| ਬਾਬਾ ਹੋਰੁ ਖਾਣਾ ਖੁਸੀ ਖੁਆਰੁ ॥ O Baba, the pleasures of other foods are false. ਜਿਤੁ ਖਾਧੈ ਤਨੁ ਪੀੜੀਐ ਮਨ ਮਹਿ ਚਲਹਿ ਵਿਕਾਰ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ Eating them, the body is ruined, and wickedness and corruption enter into the mind. ||1||Pause|| To add to that, a lot of people eat mainly from sarbloh is there any spiritual benefit from this or is it primarily just an iron booster?
