“One should eat only good things, for your body is the temple of God, the soul is God, the food you eat is your offering to the great spirit. Only offer the best…” -addressed to all Ajah
This discipline starts with what you put into your flesh due to emphasis on individual personal meditation in Ajah Dharma, the expression of holistic eating varies widely from one to another and there are few universal “rules” of clean living. The primary goal of adhering to an clean diet is to increase Prana, or the life energy that lives within all human beings, as conferred from the Almighty. Ajah believe in the sharing of a central life force among all living things, and what is put into one’s body should enhance Chi rather than reduce it. Though there are different interpretations of clean regarding specific foods, the general principle is that food should be natural, or pure, and from the earth; Often Ajah avoid food which is chemically modified or contains artificial additives (e.g., colour, flavourings, and preservatives), or foods that have been produced using chemicals such as pesticides and fertilizer are not considered clean, but this is a choice left up to the individual.
In Ajah Dharma any food you consider unhealthy or karmically tainted, is impure…
Common diet choices is to abstain from pork, cow, and alcohol… but some don’t even adhere to a diet and just try to eat healthy.
Foods in order of correctness:
1. Food grown or raised on the property, grown and harvested with your own hands.
2. Organic, sustainably grown food from local low-income non-commercial farmers with whom you have a working relationship.
3. Organic, sustainably grown food from local commercial farmers through a CSA or farmstand.
4. Organic, sustainably grown food from local commercial farms through local co-op stores.
5. Organic, sustainably grown food from distant farms through local co-op stores.
6. Non-organic, non-sustainably grown food from local low-income non-commercial farmers with whom you have a working relationship, although their methods must be examined on a case-by-case basis, and it is acceptable to deny if practices are offensive.
7. Organic, sustainably grown food bought at large supermarkets.
8. Food bought at the supermarket that is simple in its ingredients.
9. Food bought at the supermarket that is processed, or full of chemicals.
Ajah will often consider these diet choices:
vegetarian, vegan, raw-food, kosher food, Ital food, Halal Food, Ayurveda diet, or a healthy cobination of all these diets…
The point being that the body is the temple of God, and food is an offering to the soul(which is God), Thus only healthy food good enough to nourish God.
Only good food should enter the temple of the divine(body)
