Question Namaste Sir what happens when the stomach is overloaded occasionally?Does overloading of stomach occasionally increase the chances of break in brahmacharya? last time same thing happened,i just overloaded and had a break. In previous answers you have suggested "moderation in diet",but what actually does moderation means?does it mean filling half stomach with food,quarter with water and another quarter empty for air? for example if one consumes 3 chapaties,should he consume only one and half chapaties? or does it have any implied meaning? won't consuming less decrease physical and mental strength? by the way i am 19.(my mom says one has to eat well in

Questions concerning the practice of 'Brahmacharya' to know the self & the means required are dealt with on this site.

his youth to stay fit(both physically and mentally) all his life) I am not opposing the idea of observing moderation in diet,but just had few doubts regarding this... Thank you. Answer 1. Overloading the stomach can cause discomfort and inertia, thereby leading to uprising of Tamasic tendencies. These are not conducive to general well being including Brahmacharya. 2. Yes 3. Make it a point to eat many small meals rather than one large meal that overloads the stomach. Let the diet be balanced as described in past answers. When a life of Brahmacharya and Yoga are applied, one does not require very large quantities of food as was earlier further to prevention of loss of vital energy. Go through all the past answers on diet and what quality & quantity to consume. (That Supreme being is the absolute truth)

The term 'Yoga' is a derivative of the Samskruth verb 'Yuj' which refers to union. 'Yoga', also called 'Brahma vidy' is the eternal dissolution of the individual 'Aham' (Ego) into the Atman (self) that is the Lord for 'Mukti' (liberation) Mere indulgence in 'sana' or physical postures is not Yoga. sana is only one limb or 'Anga' of Yoga. The eight limbs viz. Yama, Niyama, sana, Prnyma, Pratyhra, Dhrana, Dhyna and Samdhi are the means to Yoga. Brahmacharya or spiritually based continence is one of the important components of 'Yama'. 'Brahmacharya':-"Brahmani charyathey ithi" - "One who has completely surrendered to Brahman, overcome the Ego, and has realized himself to be a tool of the Almighty."
