By drinking intoxicating stuff, one loses control over the emotions and passions, the impulses and instincts, the speech and movements and once even descends to the level of beasts . By eating meat one develops violent tendencies and animal diseases. The mind becomes difficult to control when one indulges in raajasik food. it can never be remolded if thamaasik food is consumed with relish. To dwell in Rama principle, one has to be vigilant about food and drink consumes by both body and mind. -( discourse at Prasanthi nilayam April 1965)
