"AAHARA SUDDHAU SATTVA SHUDDHI" [CHANDOGYA UPANISHAD 7.26.2]

2015-12  "Aahara suddhau sattva shuddhi"  [Chandogya Upanishad 7.26.2]


Sattvic Food
Sattvic Mind 















The constitution of a man's mind is determined by the kind of food he takes; and
a man's faith corresponds to his mental constitution.


If a man's diet is pure, his mind too, will be pure as a matter of course.
"Purity of mind follows from purity of food." [Chandogya Upanishad]*

आहार  शुद्धौ   सत्त्व  शुद्धिः 
सत्त्व शुद्धौ  स्मृतिः   ध्रुवा 
स्मृति लम्भे   सर्व ग्रन्थीनां 
Chandogya Upanishad
विप्र  मोक्षः ||             [Chandogya Upanishad 7.26.2]  

"Ahara suddhau sattva-suddhih 
Sattva-suddhau dhruva smrtihi dhruva
smrti-lambhe sarva-granthinam 
vipra-moksah"        [Chandogya Upanishad 7.26.2]


"From purity of food comes purity of mind
from purity of mind comes constant remembrance of God, and from constant remembrance of God one becomes free from all bondage - one becomes liberated."
