【The Meditation Session – What to do in between meditation sessions】Appropriate diet - Eating digestible and wholesome food
【Eating digestible and wholesome food】
When you eat, you eat what is wholesome (appropriate) and that which can be digested.
【With such food you eliminate old feelings of suffering related to food 】
With whatever food that gives rise to [feelings of suffering], you want to eliminate it.
【and you do not create new ones 】
This point is on eating wholesome (appropriate) food, do not eat unwholesome food. This is why I laid down last night. A few days ago, they said "Ah, your food…they did not pay careful attention to the food." In actual fact, I knew it was I who was not careful, I was not careful. During those two days, there were some papayas. I thought there were so much of it, so I should eat more. But after eating more, I felt ill. Normally I would not feel like that, but it was because I had already felt discomfort. So in the morning, [the food] was spicy and at lunch, it was too salty. Ah! I ate….I thought since we ate as a community, I just went along casually. In the afternoon, I started not feeling well. When it became worst, I couldn't do anything, so I laid down for a while. Later, a student bought some medicine and helped to make something. Then I felt pretty good! So this place tells you, that food is still pretty important.
