Sri Sathya Sai Baba says – ” Dear children, All of you must tread the right path. Even if your parents for any reason offer you rajasic and thamasic food prepared in the home, you must explain and convince them of the ill-effects of such food , saying ” Mother, if you serve rajasic and tamasic food to me, i will only get bad thoughts. This is not condusive to good behaviour on my part”. You must also convince them to prepare and serve satwic food to all family members. ” – Divine discourse 22 oct 2005 at childrens festival of joy at prasanthi nilayam.
