Pitru Paksha Diet

Pitru Paksha Diet details

Those who read my blog posts on Mahalaya would know that I had indicated that there are some dietary restrictions to be followed.

About a year earlier I posted that the Bhagavad Gita speaks about Food habits in detail and quoted texts with explanations.

I have tried these Dietary recommendations for the letter since last Mahalaya Paksha.

While I cannot comment on the spiritual benefits that could have accrued, I can definitely assert that there was an astonishing improvement in my mental state and disposition.

In fact my wife, daughter and son were surprised that I was cool even under pressure, anger had ceased to exist and I was listening to others patiently without interrupting them, a quality which I am not accustomed to.

I could feel I remained undisturbed and was in fact was watching things happening around me,even if it involved me, as though I was a spectator.

There was no hurry in doing things, no anxiety.

There was no heaviness while waking up in the morning.

This I could attribute only to the Diet, for there was no significant change in my Lifestyle other than this.
