"When you cultivate the attitude that you are the body, the body will demand from you more food, more variety in food, more attention to appearance and physical comfort. A large portion of the food now consumed is superfluous; man can live healthily on much less. A good deal of effort and expenditure now spent to cater to taste and to social pomp can be given up, and health too will improve thereby. Mitha thindi, athi haayi - "Moderate food gives excellent health." Gourmets only reveal their Thamoguna (quality of inertia and indolence). Eat to live; do not believe that you live in order to eat."

"People who are suffering, people who are immersed in sorrow and people who are helpless, should be your real friends. You should help such people. This is what you should accept as your primary duty."
