vegetarian diet and the yogi

In today’s podcast, Abbot George Burke talks about how diet affects consciousness, and the importance of a pure diet for the yogi.

Abbot George shares these stories:

  • The unusual experiment in diet that Abbot George conducted before teaching a yoga seminar.
  • The positive effect that taking up a vegetarian diet had for exam students.
  • The negative effect that occurred from using just a small amount of liqueur for stomach troubles.
  • How a vegetarian diet is not primarily Ahimsa (harmlessness) for the yogi, but Shaucha (purification).
  • Why Abbot George became an avid food label reader.
  • What happened to Abbot George’s yogi friends who refused to be strict with their diets.
