MoveEdit

I have moved the contents of the page "sentient diet" to "sattvic diet" based on a google search. "Sentient foods" produced 300 hits, "sattvic diet" procuced 2400 hits and "sattvic foods" 1400. "Yoga diet" produced 23,000 hits, however, not all "yoga diets" are sattvic or sentient. I will create a redirect from "yoga diet" to sattvic diet. Sethie 16:15, 1 May 2007 (UTC)

UndoEdit

Ummm I noticed you undid the changes I made without discussing them. My request of you would be to either discuss the changes here, or at least make comments in the edit summary field.

I am adding in one of your changes the refference to sentient foods.

I removed the chart because it has no source.Sethie 05:33, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

POVEdit

I have nominated this page for a POV check. It aggressively promotes the vegetarian lifestyle; while I have no problem with this lifestyle, the facts are unchecked and clearly opinions. Tashabot —Preceding comment was added at 10:38, 30 April 2008 (UTC)

Medical analysisEdit

It would be prudent to include a conventional medical analysis of these claims. -- Beland 12:28, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

Importance of the source of milkEdit

Our article on Satva says "The milk of a cow which has grown in good surroundings, is healthy and has been obtained after the calf of the cow has been fed well. In cases when the cow has been ill treated, it becomes sinful or evil to drink such milk."

This page treats milk as if the conditions of the cow are of no consequence. Does it bear mention here, or is the statement at Satva overblown.

-- The page currently says text like "The milk must be obtained from an animal that has a spacious outdoor environment, an abundance of pasture to feed on, water to drink, is treated with love and care, and is not pregnant. The milk may only be collected once the mother's calf has its share."

However I am currently trying to find sources for the dairy section. I fear that this author has misinterpreted the Upanishads in the line "an abundance of pasture to feed on, water to drink...and is not pregnant."

The Upanishads state "'Unblessed^, surely, are the worlds to which a man goes by giving (as his promised present at a sacrifice) cows which have drunk water, eaten hay, given their milk ^, and are barren,'"

This means that you shouldn't give used-up cows as sacrifice. Could the author have misinterpreted this to source his statement? I am unable to find a source of the "is not pregnant" part. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:644:402:440:B58A:845A:82A9:E110 (talk) 10:58, 3 May 2017 (UTC)

/* Sattvic herbs */Edit

Nutmeg is not sattvic; it is tamasic. 24.20.159.212 (talk) 19:25, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Happy Cow?Edit

Is this really and encyclopeadic article where they are talking about "happy cows"? Good comedy read mind you. SH 16:50, 2 April 2013 (UTC)

Ms Sarah Weltch version.Edit

There are two schools of thought on the yogi (sattvic) diet and I have brought back the previous version of the sattvic diet description. (link below) Ms Sarah Weltch's version seems to go towards the second school of thought which relates to chapters 17, verses 8,9,10.

"8: Foods in the mode of goodness increase the duration of life, purify one's existence and give strength, health, happiness and satisfaction. Such nourishing foods are sweet, juicy, fattening and palatable. 9: Foods that are too bitter, too sour, salty, pungent, dry and hot, are liked by people in the modes of passion. Such foods cause pain, distress, and disease. 9: Food cooked more than three hours before being eaten, which is tasteless, stale, putrid, decomposed and unclean, is food liked by people in the mode of ignorance."
