In Part 5 of this 5-Part series, Wendi talks with Leela Mata about meditation and diet. After discussing what meditation is and why people practice it, Mata Ji talks about diet and its effects on the mind. She then gives a brief explanation of how to meditate for those who are new to the practice, and demonstrates how to use a simple mantra (word or phrase) to aid in entering a meditative state.
We hope you've enjoyed this week-long series of interviews with Leela Mata. As explained at the beginning fo the week, Peaceful Valley Ashram is a special place for us here at Pure Jeevan. If you ever have a change to cisit Mata Ji or the ashram, we'd love to hear about it.
