Walk the middle path – Sadhu Vaswani

The quantity of food you take should fit in with requirements of your health and your power of digestion.

The food you eat should be such as has been obtained by fair and honest means.

Excessive fasting too must be avoided. Fasting does good both to physical and spiritual life but only when it is regulated.

He who would attain to meditation walks the middle path. He is a man of divine discipline, and so takes the mean between indulgence and asceticism. He maintains moderation in eating and recreation, in sleeping and walking, in exertions of actions, in speech and silence, in labor and rest. His day-to-day life shows the absence of excitement and nervousness, of indiscretion and idle talk, of indulgence and self-torture. He knows no excess in action.
