Sattvic Food

Three sorts of defects make food impure — first, Jâti-dosha, the defect in the very nature of the class to which the food belongs, as the smell in onions, garlic, and suchlike. The next is Âshraya-dosha, the defect in the person from whom the food comes; food coming from a wicked person will make you impure. I myself have seen many great sages in India following strictly that advice all their lives. Of course they had the power to know who brought the food, and even who had touched the food, and I have seen it in my own life, not once, but hundreds of times. Then Nimitta-dosha, the defect of impure things or influences coming in contact with food is another

Enjoying Music!

Music is a black hole - it sucks your soul in!
Music is a bright star - it guides your flying soul!

The difference between classical music and commerical music is SPONTANTIY. Thats why even in carnatic music, when the spontanity is lost, it becomes commercial rather than classical.

Music must be enjoyed in continuous oscillation between mind and heart!!!
Listening (& feeling:-)with the heart & Learning with the mind

But that's synonymous with every activity we do, I guess
