Leo

Āśitṛ – voracious

«The devotees of the Lord are released from all kinds of sins because they eat food which is offered first for sacrifice. Others, who prepare food for personal sense enjoyment, verily eat only sin» (Bhagavad-gītā, 3.13).

I know, it sounds too moralistic. But you must consider that this verse is extrapolated from the Bhagavad-gītā, whose conceptual pillars are bhakti and karma-yoga. For the first you must act in function of God, for the second you must act without interest, without attachment to actions.

Given this premise, I hope you don’t have problems with overweight, Leo, or that you are not a person who gives vent to eating when he has moments of nervousness. In each of the two cases this month you should be careful about feeding. Whether you have frustrations, whether you are so relaxed that you can enjoy indolence and give vent to greediness, it would be better if you used physical movement to find a balance. I’m not saying that you have to sweat every day, but you can spend more time on yoga, on a nice massage, on walks in a place you’ve never seen before.

IN PRACTICE  

Sūryabhedana-prānāyāma, Sun drilling.

Practice every morning as soon as you get up, it will give you energy and wish to do. Make 6 cycles (right breath, left breath is a cycle) trying to exhale twice the time of inhalation.

Awareness exercise:

Why not to try for a month to eat more consciously by following Gītā’s advice and offering food before eating it. How to do? For example, remembering the mantra that I recommend below.

Mantra of the month:
