Sattvik Lunch or Phalahar during festive season in Hotels


vrat thali

In some cities, a few hotels have started selling Saatvik lunch, or Phalahar (fruity meal) during the festive season for the people who observe a fast! But keep in mind while preparing such food which is being called Saatvik, norms for purity of the body and mind are not followed; hence they are Tamoguni; on the contrary, consuming fruits, milk, or curd at home would prove more beneficial! The primary objective of a Sattvik diet is to restrain our senses and by eating Saatvik food in comparatively lesser quantity with bit of empty stomach, God is remembered !  The meaning of ‘upwas’ (fast) itself is, ‘Upa’ meaning near and ‘Vaas’ meaning, being present. When we are near God, that is called ‘Upavaas’, meaning thereby when we do qualified Sadhana and we realise His subtle existence, that is called an ‘Upavas’, loading the stomach with delicious food in the name of Phalahaar ( sattvik food ) is not called ‘Upavas’! – Tanuja Thakur
