    My sincere thanks to the author for coming out with old manuals saying of the Sanskrit which has thrown enough information, but we are not unconcered not taken time to go into the deep of what has been said. We had enough expereince on Ajeerne Bhojanam visham which clearly implies that when we those food which are not to the likes of the body, it will reject and the next morning we feel like drowsy or fatigue. Like wise we had enough experience on Ardharogahari nidhraa which specifies that if the sleep is not right and good, the next day would be hell lots of confusion and feel like lost in the life. And what I liked is Sarvaa dharmeshu madhyamaam, that means instead of choosing this extreme or the that extreme, chosing middle path would be more productive and that cannot be questioned further because we are nuetral.

    A systematic way of living gives good health. Our eating habits will have a lot of say on our health. My grandfather used to say that we should not eat if there is no hunger. He used to say we should have correct routines that keep our health in our control. Too much eating, eating junk food, not sleeping till midnight and getting up very late in the morning are never advisable. Once we have a systematic life we will have peace of mind also. The various points mentioned by the author are really good and should be followed by all.
    always confident
