Eating and fasting.

Q: Swami, is it good to go of fasts?

I once asked Bhagavan what food a sadhaka should take.

He replied, 'If you put too much food in the stomach your energy and your ability to remain aware of consciousness will diminish. But if the amount of food in the stomach is less, your awareness will be good.'

It is not necessary to keep the stomach completely empty. Small quantities of sattvic food are best if you want to meditate well.

There is a passage in the spinal cord no thicker than a thread. Through this channels light passes up and goes through the sushumna [a channel in the subtle body'. If you put too much food in the stomach, this light is covered.
