The mental state of a person in Vedic language is described in terms of gunas. The present state of mind of any person is a result of mixing of three gunas of nature called Tamoguna, Rajoguna and Satoguna. In terms of states of mind they are called Tamas, Rajas and Satwa and the nature of a person is called Tamsik, Rajsik and Satvik.

Vedas, Upanishads, Bhagavad Gita and Ayurveda talk about these gunas. The Sankhya philosophy also says that a mixture of the three makes up the cosmic mind as well as the human mind. Bhagwad Gita talks in great detail about the Nature, Yagna as well as diet depending upon these gunas.

A Satvik diet is the one, which makes a person full of Satoguna and makes him or her with predominant Satvik nature. The same is true for other two gunas. According to Ayurvedic text and in Atharvaveda, any food, which comes from the roots or underground part of the tree, is Tamsik in nature. Tamsik foods should not be eaten raw. They should either be slow cooked or soaked in water for hours before consumption.

Foods which are from the top part of the tree like coconut, fruits, leaves and flowers are Satvik in nature and can be consumed fresh, as they are. Foods which come from the middle part of the tree are often Rajsik in nature. Fresh, soaked, sprouted, natural foods are often Satvik and old, left over foods are Tamsik in nature. Most Satvik foods are naturally white.

In Ramayana, Kumbhakaran represents a person with Tamsik nature, Meghnad & Ravana with Rajsik nature and Vibhishana with Satvik nature. Kumbhakaran’s diet was left over foods, onions, radish, carrots and non vegetarian food, all are tamas–producing.

Shastras also teaches us about Satvik food. In Vedic knowledge, God is represented by the consciousness and whatever is offered to God is the one, which is offered to consciousness and hence all offerings to God are soul-healing and soul-nurturing food items. Only Satvik foods are offered to God as one can live on Satvik food forever. Examples are dry fruits, fruits and milk. One cannot live on Rajsik or Tamsik food; hence, they have to be taken in moderation only.

The offerings to God include honey, milk, curd, fruits and vegetables, etc. Panchamrit offered in Puja is a mixture of milk, curd, ghee, honey and sugar is a classical example.

Yogashastra also talks about the role of Satvik diet in great detail. It says people who eat less are yogis, people who eat in moderation are bhogis and people who eat a lot are rogis. The synonyms are Tamsik for Rogi, Rajsik for Bhogi and Satvik for Yogi.

In terms of proper diet one should eat dinner lighter than lunch, eat only natural food during the night and follow the principles of moderation and variety.

Never hurt the ego of a person

It is a well known Vedic fact that if you hurt the ego of a person, he will never forgive you, especially, if you have insulted or implicated him in character assassination, cast implications, financial embezzlement or in public, you call a woman as old or a man as impotent. For example, if I hurt the ego of a chowkidaar, the next time a patient comes to the hospital gate and asks where Dr. KK Aggarwal is, he only has to whisper, “Which Aggarwal, whose cases never survive?”

Also never hurt the ego of a person who is drunk. Under the influence of alcohol, a person loses his capacity to judge persons and situations. If you provoke him, he can be destructive and aggressive.

In mythology, the Pandavas represent the necessary five qualities which one should have. Yudhishthir means one who is balanced in war state of mind or in dilemma [Yudh means war and isthir means balanced].  Yudhishthir indicate the quality of being balanced and static during any diversity or facing a problem.

Arjuna indicates the focus quality of a person and Bheema represents the quality of inner strength. Nakul means to be neutral in life and Sahdeva means welfare of all.

These five qualities once acquired are sufficient to fight and kill the 100 Kauravas controlled by Shakuni, Duryodhana  and sushhasana.

Duryodhana means the one who is Dur (Dusht) in Yudha (war) or indicates negative thinking or negative choices.

Dushassana means the one who is Dusht while ruling. Shakuni represents cunning actions to acquire anything using Saam Daam Dand Bhed.

Dhratrashtra who is physically blind in mythology indicates ignorance and Gandhari who keeps he eyes closed willfully indicates the quality of closing the eyes when Adharma takes place (Dekh ke bhi andekha karna).
