A Sattvic Life
– gentle exercise daily
– daily meditation (twice for Vedic Vihara:morning/evening)
– a considered approach and routine to eating; eating at the same time each day, and eating sitting and not engaged in other activities and gratitude for what we are enjoying
– getting to bed early
– development of Sattvic states of mind; calm, positivity, enthusiasm, joy, happiness, honesty, humility, flexibility, moderation, balance, gratitude
– being engaged in conscientious hard work that contributes good in the world
Of course, I believe that daily meditation (twice for Vedic vihara in morning and evening) is the most important component of the sattvic lifestyle.
Wishing you a most sattvic vihara...
