FOR ANYONE, AT ANY AGE
The ancient science of life – AYURVEDA – states that in order to reach and maintain a good state of health and harmony the human being must observe three basic conditions:
1. healthy and natural diet,
2. proper regenerating rest,
3. perfect control over the sexual-creative potential
When these three vital and essential tings are constantly respected the human being can reach and maintain an excellent state of health and therefore have a long and happy life.
Just as a tripod can not remain in a standing position unless the three steady feet, the state of health of the human being is based on observing these three basic conditions. This ayurveda vision is very practical and extremely useful for all human beings, no matter the age or sex, no matter the country or the intellectual level.
In order to maintain a perfect state of health and to live a long and happy life, a wise man must always try to know very well and apply these essential conditions of a happy life. Should one of these conditions be neglected it will tend to loose our liability to respect the other two.
If we do not care what we eat, if we eat carelessly, anything and anyhow, dismissing the principles of a healthy food, we will shortly see that not even rest is satisfying anymore or we will see that we will not be able to have a calm sleep, or we will see that it is more difficult for us to exert the control over our desires and sexual potential.
Equally, if we do not have a resting sleep or if we constantly neglect the necessity to rest when we need to, these will gradually disorder our healthy alimentary habits and decrease our control over the sexual potential.
Also every time the mental state of self-control is affected, this will cause difficulties in performing Sexual continence and thereby we’ll face a lack of balance both in healthy food and proper rest.
Thus it is important to remember that when we feel hungry (and if we know that we have a healthy digestive system) we will have a balanced and natural diet, or if after a hard work (physical or mental) we get enough rest to regenerate and also if we constantly try to control our senses, also having a controlled and healthy sexual life, all these will stand as a powerful base to reach and maintain a perfect state of health for a longer period of time.
