  1. i know i can stretch my legs when eating on the floor, it is quite comfortable after that.
  2. I learned that it is not recommended for devotees to keep pets indoor at home. Any more details about this from various perspectives ? Thanks a lot.
  3. Also i found out that lots of Buddhist information mistaken hing/Asafoetida to to be one of their "five spices" to avoid
  4. >> hing will give onion taste i think hing is more like garlic instead of onion ???
  5. cannot find the word "ashakbhuk", only found "Ritbhuk" >> ayurved says that do not eat vegetables still not know the meaning
  6. >> garlic is poison if poison means eat and die immediately or very soon, i believe garlic is not. however, i believe strongly garlic has its good and also has some bad, so i think it is a medicine herb, not like food grade herbs/food to be taken daily or in large quantity. Plus garlic is entirely optional to human health and survival. if i know there is some issues of caution and warning, it would rather avoid such food competely even not on religious ground.
  7. Health Benefits of Garlic Beware! It's the Opposite of What you Might Think Garlic Desynchronises your Brainwaves http://www.relfe.com/health_benefits_of_garlic.html Garlic Dangers http://www.garlic-central.com/dangers.html Garlic for Pets http://www.garlic-central.com/pets.html Self-inflicted garlic burns: our experience and literature review http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/journal/118619271/abstract?CRETRY=1&SRETRY=0 Warning: Garlic Is a Powerful Blood Thinner Garlic must be used with caution by people who have a bleeding disorder, or are on blood thinning medication such as aspirin or warfarin, because it is a powerful blood thinner. Other side effects include bad breath, body odor, heartburn, upset stomach, and allergic reactions. http://herbal-properties.suite101.com/article.cfm/why_garlic_is_good_for_your_health Side Effects and Cautions http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garlic#Side_effects http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garlic#Cautions Garlic - history http://www.plantcultures.org/plants/garlic_history.html Garlic In addition to warding off vampires, one to three cloves of garlic daily can help lower cholesterol and protect against cancers of the stomach, prostate and colon. Garlic’s antibacterial and antifungal properties also boost the immune system. But before you start popping cloves, realize that they’ve got to be crushed to make their benefits available. The key healthful ingredient, allicin, only forms when exposed to air. Similarly, when you cook with garlic, let the crushed or chopped cloves stand for 10 minutes first. And if you’d rather take a garlic supplement, make sure it contains allicin. Not everyone’s gonzo about garlic. Ayurveda, the traditional Indian healing system, cautions that garlic heats the body, so it could aggravate problems with digestion, hot flashes, excessive body heat or tendencies to be impatient or angry. And although garlic thins the blood, which can help lower blood pressure, it also increases the risk of bleeding if you’re having surgery or are taking blood thinners, including aspirin. http://www.care2.com/greenliving/food-pharmacy%E2%80%94a-hype-free-look-at-seven-healthy-foods.html
  8. Ayurveda on Raw food and fruitarian ? Ayurvedic cooking stressed a lot on cooked food. And i have heard before there are yogis just eat fruits only, not even veggies. But is it really true that Ayurveda do not recommend 100% raw diet for humans ?

  10. >> Siva and all the forms of Godhead are different forms of Krishna. Is Lord Siva as demigod ?
  11. thanks, it is located at http://en.allexperts.com/q/Hindus-946/2008/10/Origin-World.htm Brahmanda An image of the spiritual and material world in all its complexity Larger size image that can see clearly the text would be great.
  12. Do you know can I view the poster in this video from any website [ e.g. scanned image ] ? or how can i get a copy of this poster ? Thanks
  13. Thanks for let me know about hing is useful on bean dishes. But are there other food preparation methods to prevent flatulence other than using hing ? >> if you are a meat-eater you dont need hing. but i suppose meat eaters also eat beans or vegetables too.
  14. >> mustard not heard about restriction on this before, any reasons behind? >> hing for this, i really not sure if it is ok or not ? As it is used by certain groups to replace onions ? or replace garlic ? Hing's taste is not attractive to me, i don't need hing, but maybe someone will look for hing substitute, an endless replacement cycle ?
  15. >> I lived in India for over a year and I can tell you that onion is a big part of the cuisine there you misunderstood my question, i means historically, not now. For now, many indian restaurants use onions, in India or not in India. What about in the past ? >> I don't recall eating much garlic there (I ate mostly in restaurants). i know one indian restaurant in my country like so much to add garlic to some of their dishes. favoured by their owner. >> their 'pure veg' restaurants don't have any soy products which is unthinkable for a Western vegetarian restaurant. The above restaurants mentioned also like to use soy sauce. strange to me really, another hidden source of MSG added. i don't know what ingredients in Indian food will make me so thirsty, if not salt ? not spices ? so i guess may be the MSG added indirectly from their use of soy sauce or other types of supermarket brought sauces or seasonings.
  16. chilis are only imported to India ? wow, a new theory ! so the same for chilis in China as well ? seems to me there is a long history of chilis in China
  17. Are these ingredients common in traditional( Authentic ) Indian Cooking ? Onion ? Garlic ? I wonder if they are used because of influenced by western dishes or not ? Please clarify Thanks
  18. Are there any strictly health related reasons to avoid eating onion or avoid garlic ? because some people do not care much if you mention religious reasons Thanks
  19. i see wearing crown looks like a male deity
  20. >> there are lots of women yogis but there would be diffferences like they will not like wandering sadhus? they will stay in a home/shelther ? or others diffferences ?
  21. I would like to know if there are female Yogi ? such as in India http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C3E0xNaPbZ0
  22. >> Avoid hydrogen peroxide and glycerin, which are drying and can lead to tooth sensitivity. Is it true ??
