Question: Om Shanti Dear Brother, In today’s Murli, Shiv Baba talked about food. I’m new to this knowledge. Prior to this knowledge, i’m practicing Naturopathy life style by eating complete raw food for the whole day. After I got the knowledge, I started attending Murli class daily. But when the Thursday’s Bhog is offered to me, i felt that it is not the food a Brahmin soul to eat ( as it is made with salt etc. which are harmful to the body). Should I accept the food offered in the center or not? and I want to know what kind of food a Brahmin soul should eat? Are we interpreting the meaning of food according to our wish?
Thank you for your very good question!
Brahmin diet gives you the “do not consume” items. Those things are meat of any kind, eggs, garlic, onions, tobacco, alcohol and any non prescribed drugs. The rest you may “indulge.”
However, that “space” of things which you can eat, is open for you to decide.
As far as myself, I do not eat spicy food, cheese, processed sugars, white rice, flours and I do not drink coffee. That pretty much leaves BK sugary tolis out of the picture. My aim is Sattvic food as much as possible.
Also, I am not fond on eating food that it is cooked by others but myself. I will accept from someone who I feel is in a similar effort making stage than mine.
When it comes to bhog there are 2 schools of thought: ” Take everything that Baba offers” or “Do not take everything and pick what you feel will agree with you.” I go for the later. If you do not feel that what is being offered to Baba is something that you would like to eat, do not feel compelled to eat it. Just say thank you and take Drishti.
When I go to Madhuban or any other BK center; I may have to make some exceptions in my diet, but still I will eat lots of fruits and drink lots of juices as much as possible.
Even though I have requested in an “unofficial” way to have a BK seminar on combining food items properly and trying raw foods as well, here in the USA,( Which I feel is very healthy and wholesome) that request hasn’t been followed up.
Therefore, if you have any knowledge about combining food items properly and eating them at their proper time, it would appreciated if you share it.
What you eat affects your mind and even though that is something that BapDada has mentioned, still we do not seem to “get it.”

Dear reader, please make your best effort to write in English or have someone translate it for you. WIll write an article on purity again (pavitra?) that may answer your question.
Thank you for sharing those words of wisdom, “Angel eyes.” Certainly, it is good to know that you are back in the “race.” It seems to me that you are well positioned with those previous experiences, to do well in the “balancing act” of Brahmin life.
yes please Questioner soul: share your experiences and insights!
Dear Divine Souls,
When I came to Baba, in the euphoria of falling in love with God, I allowed the opinions of others or even what I was interpretting from the Murli, to over ride my common sense (or divine sense, the common sense that comes from purity)
Baba’s aim is to take us back to to having a clean, pure and clear intellect, which in fact would operate from the highest common or divine sense. It’s our clear intellect that became blurred through the ages.
When our intellect is clear on something, and we know something to be right, it’s very important for us trust it, as opposed to doubting ourselves based on what someone else is telling us to do.
Baba is taking us back to that place of self sovereignty and clarity, where we have total trust and faith in the self. Then, game over.
When I came into gyan I was very knowledgeable about how to have harmony with this body. After being told that I should not have preferences to eat “healthy” etc, I eventually stopped. It was of course my own fault for not trusting myself.
After many years, I am back on track and trusting the wisdom of the soul to take care of the body. As Sudesh Didi recently said, it is our “life partner”.
If you are knowledgeable about how to care for your body, you are that much closer to the harmony and respect we will have for and with the elements in the Golden age. Stay in that purity and trust yourself, having this harmony and balance is one the things the Brahmin family needs the most, you can do a lot of service if you trust yourself on this.
The toli boxes in Madhuban do say “As the food, so the Mind”. Agreed with avyakt7 that Baba has said these things, but perhaps we still haven’t gotten it.
