A Sattvic diet consists of food that gives life, strength and energy to the individual. The Bhagavad Gita describes the Sattvic foods as promoting life, virtue, strength, health, happiness and satisfaction. It also says that Sattvic foods are savory, smooth, firm and pleasant to the stomach.Organic foods are therefore recommended for both their purity and vitality. Food should be fresh and freshly prepared. Also the way Sattvic food is prepared is also important, which means the persons state of mind when making the food should be positive and the food is best prepared with a state of love and awareness. This is important because many believe the emotions or energy of the person preparing the food is passed on to the food.You should also be sa:tvic for total surrenderence to god, and people can become bad with thamo and rajo guna, but wih sattva guna it may be a at least transparency with god being the doer and you being the watcher.
Being Satvic creates purity in one’s mind which leads you to god.
When the mind is stable and pure,the faculty of discrimination is sharpened, following which knowledge ripens and culminates in Bhakthi. The mind is stable and pure when you don’t eat nonveg, nonveg can cause ignorance,people to be depressed,a lazy mind,and a bad intellect.
Bhakthi is a selfless, overpowering love for the Lord. This can be attained only when knowledge of the higher power is attained. This knowledge can be attained when you perform your action sincerely and efficiently.
Doing your duty to the utmost perfection of which you are capable is the foothold of all spiritual discipline.
One must work incessantly and, in the process, give up all mental attachment like attachment to eating non veg food. It is possible to perform your duties in this manner only when you have a basic understanding of who you are, why you have come here, and what is to be attained. Knowledge and action are very closely linked. A man acts according to his knowledge. With knowledge as a base, when you perform your duties in the right manner, your mind becomes purified and the knowledge of the Self, or God, can then be preserved in the mind. When this knowledge ripens, love of God blossoms.
