Directions to Eat and Drink
We should eat in the east and north direction and sit while eating. Don’t sit towards the west and south, it is considered a sinful act. Drinking and eating in the west direction is like drinking alcoholic beverages. Eating towards the south direction is like eating flesh and blood because it’s the direction of the god of death(Lord Yama). DO NOT WALK or TALK WHILE EATING and DRINKING. They are prohibited even while standing. Sit while eating and drinking. Note: No restrictions are in temples.
Scientific proof – sitting down and eating more slowly can reduce the risk of diabetes, and drinking while standing lets the water hit the lower part of the esophagus strongly, and by time this leads to a dilation and relaxation of the sphincter that connects the esophagus and stomach, which finally leads to a medical condition called “GERD: GastroEsophageal Reflux Disease”
