Eat Less, Sleep Less, Speak Less

I've been told by my mum a lot of times that people should eat less, sleep less, and talk less, and this makes sense to me as it gives us more time to be devoted to Parmatma and so that we can do more paath. I also think that the matter of eating less is very important, as this would decrease the number of fat ppl out there (especially aunties and uncles in the Gurdwara :D ). and before ppl start saying that ppl can be fat for a number of reasons, eg not enough time for exercise or illness, generally a lot of ppl are fat cos they eat too much, and should remember that "food is for life" not "life is for food", life is for Parmatma after all

Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh

A friend of mine, made the following posting on my site a few years ago, about the same topic. Helped me out in terms of understanding the message Gurbani was conveying to us:

"Eating and sleeping are two sensory pleasures which the body craves. Although both of these are neccessary for life, unless they are kept under control they can have a negative effect on the mind. Over indulging on food or sleep is not beneficial (I'm sure there are plenty of scientific facts to back this up too). The gurbani advises you to eat and sleep enough to sustain yourself. If you can't control these craving, they will control you. They both constitute a form of greed. Why eat when you are not hungry? Our time is limited and should be devoted to God. Why waste time sleeping?"-Pal
