The Essence of Sacrifice

What is sacrifice?

It is giving up something that you value. You can only sacrifice that which you would like to keep for yourself; in other words, that which gives you pleasure and joy. You cannot sacrifice something that you dislike or disown.

Better Living - Recovery

Your body is built to have its own balance. If not tampered with its original growth pattern, the body must live to its fullest without ailments or illnesses. But, this may not be your experience. You have seen times of disease. Improper diet or hectic pursuit of career or even your lifestyle can be blamed..  

Exuding Un-Earthly Charm

The Mahalakshmi temple in Kolhapur, is one of the famed ‘Shakti Peethas’ described in Hinduism. As per the story of the Daksha Yagna and the self-immolation of Goddess Sati Devi, the body parts of the Goddess fell on 18 different places on Earth. The places where each body part of the Goddess fell became converted into holy temples for worship. It is believed that the eyes of Goddess Sati Devi fell in the region called Kolhapur in Maharashtra, India!  

Importance of Nutrition during Fever and Illness

Any infection, viral or bacterial, attacks the immune system. In the early stages of infection, a person shows no visible signs of illness but later, many signs of infection will become apparent, including weight loss, fever, diarrhoea or constipation, nausea, tastelessness and lack of appetite.A healthy and balanced diet, early treatment of infection and proper nutritional recovery after infection can reduce the impact of future infection.  

The Yoga of Eating

The art of loving food and the awareness of the love that has gone into making it, is the “Yoga of Eating”. It seems that in the race of the 21st century, the ‘Yoga of Eating’ is subsiding as we tend to eat food on the run, make it in the microwave, eat while talking on the phone. So, the days of sitting at a family table, saying a prayer and taking time to chew, has become an image of the past.Yet, when we look into the diverse cultures and traditions around the world, sitting and eating together is a common thread that weaves the social fabric of a society.
