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

Gurbani promotes Satoguni diet. Eat simple lacto-vegetarian food.

Examples of food asked for by Bhagats (in Gurbani) include pulses, wheat, milk products, grains, etc.

The below is from another topic. Please have a look

Quote

Sexual Activity, Semen retention and Anger management

ਕਾਮੁ ਕ੍ਰੋਧੁ ਕਾਇਆ ਕਉ ਗਾਲੈ ॥

Sexual desire and unresolved anger waste the body away,

Stress Management

ਨਾਨਕ ਚਿੰਤਾ ਮਤਿ ਕਰਹੁ ਚਿੰਤਾ ਤਿਸ ਹੀ ਹੇਇ ॥

O Nanak, don't be anxious; the Lord will take care of you.

ਜਲ ਮਹਿ ਜੰਤ ਉਪਾਇਅਨੁ ਤਿਨਾ ਭਿ ਰੋਜੀ ਦੇਇ ॥

He created the creatures in water, and He gives them their nourishment.

Meat and Intoxicants

ਕਬੀਰ ਭਾਂਗ ਮਾਛੁਲੀ ਸੁਰਾ ਪਾਨਿ ਜੋ ਜੋ ਪ੍ਰਾਨੀ ਖਾਂਹਿ ॥

Kabeer, those mortals who consume marijuana, fish and wine

ਤੀਰਥ ਬਰਤ ਨੇਮ ਕੀਏ ਤੇ ਸਭੈ ਰਸਾਤਲਿ ਜਾਂਹਿ ॥੨੩੩

- no matter what pilgrimages, fasts and rituals they follow, they will all go to hell. ||233||

Anger Management

ਫਰੀਦਾ ਬੁਰੇ ਦਾ ਭਲਾ ਕਰਿ ਗੁਸਾ ਮਨਿ ਨ ਹਢਾਇ ॥

Fareed, answer evil with goodness; do not fill your mind with anger.

ਦੇਹੀ ਰੋਗੁ ਨ ਲਗਈ ਪਲੈ ਸਭੁ ਕਿਛੁ ਪਾਇ ॥੭੮

Your body shall not suffer from any disease, and you shall obtain everything. ||78||

Sleep Management

ਘਟੁ ਦੁਖ ਨੀਦੜੀਏ ਪਰਸਉ ਸਦਾ ਪਗਾ ॥

O painful sleep, grow shorter, so that I may constantly grasp His Feet.

Big Disease

ਹਉਮੈ ਦੀਰਘ ਰੋਗੁ ਹੈ ਦਾਰੂ ਭੀ ਇਸੁ ਮਾਹਿ ॥

Ego is a chronic disease, but it contains its own cure as well.

Peace

ਡਾਹਪਣਿ ਤਨਿ ਸੁਖੁ ਨਹੀ ਬਿਨੁ ਡਰ ਬਿਣਠੀ ਡਾਰ ॥

In jealousy, the body is not at peace; without the Fear of God, multitudes are ruined.

Meat

ਜੇ ਰਤੁ ਲਗੈ ਕਪੜੈ ਜਾਮਾ ਹੋਇ ਪਲੀਤੁ ॥

If one's clothes are stained with blood, the garment becomes polluted.

ਜੋ ਰਤੁ ਪੀਵਹਿ ਮਾਣਸਾ ਤਿਨ ਕਿਉ ਨਿਰਮਲੁ ਚੀਤੁ ॥

How can those who drink blood (eat meat) become pure?

Alcohol and Sensual Pleasures

ਸੁਆਦ ਲੁਭਤ ਇੰਦ੍ਰੀ ਰਸ ਪ੍ਰੇਰਿਓ ਮਦ ਰਸ ਲੈਤ ਬਿਕਾਰਿਓ ਰੇ ॥

Those who are deluded by sensual pleasures, who are tempted by sexual delights and enjoy wine are corrupt.

Bathing and Hygiene

ਕਰਿ ਇਸਨਾਨੁ ਸਿਮਰਿ ਪ੍ਰਭੁ ਅਪਨਾ ਮਨ ਤਨ ਭਏ ਅਰੋਗਾ ॥

After taking your cleansing bath, remember your God in meditation, and your mind and body shall be free of disease.

Fried food is prohibited by Guru Gobind Singh Ji. (ਭਾਂਤ ਭਾਂਤ ਭੱਛਤ ਪਕਵਾਨਾ|| ਉਪਜਤ ਰੋਗ ਦੇਹ ਤਿਨ ਨਾਨਾ||)
