Indian Department of Weights and Measures

July 7, 2008

While staying at the Root Institute in Bodh Gaya, India, I had a rare afternoon free from the course I was involved with to do some meditative photography. The kitchen staff used a simple balance and weight system to measure and prepare food. Here’s a quick sampling:


How amazing is the human body and the way it works. I sometimes sit in awe of our ability to do some much with our bodies. Unfortunately for most of us the modern lifestyle and food we eat is stopping us from using them for what they are meant for. We can all make easy simple changes to our diet and lifestyle to help turn back the clock and give our bodies the chance they deserve to get us through life. I sure do understand the whole idea of making time to go to the gym on a daily basis is difficult for most. There are so many ways you can have a healthy life without going to the gym. Diet sure is a important factor, not dieting, diet. The foods we consume in our daily lives most often are not what we need and we all know this as we eat it. What can we do to stop ourselves from being so lazy and not even thinking about what we put in our body? From a young age we develop our palate and we all have either a sweet or savory one. Healthy foods come in both sweet and savory which we should be so grateful for. In the modern world we get fooled into believing we can’t afford to eat healthy foods as it is to expensive. I want to let you know that that is not so, junk food full of salt or sugar leaves you full for such a short time that you tend to eat more then your need to.
