Diet plays an important part in the observance or vritahm. Even in ordinary circumstances restricting the intake of food to the minimum needed to sustain ourselves is good for us. But during austerities, especially, consumption of satvik food helps very much in the observance of continence. Here again let us be guided by the Gita ideals.

The food we daily take has its effect on our psychology and character. It may be satvik, good and strengthening to the spirit; destructive of serenity, passion- producing, rajasik; or wholly bad causing deterioration of mind and intellect and increasing intertia, tamasik.

The foods that promote long life and vitality, bodily vigour, health, joy and amiability, which are pleasant to the taste, soft, substantial and satisfying are liked by satvik natures.

The passionate desire foods that are bitter, sour, saline, over- hot pungent, dry and burning. These produce sickness, pain and grief.

Food that is not freshly made, food that has lost its flavor, stale food, and food that has gone putrid, left -over food and food which is filthy, appeal to men of tamasik nature.

It is clear from the above description of different kinds of food that only satvik food strengthens the spirit and provides vitality and bodily vigour. Hence the injunctions that pilgrims should take only this kind of food.
