You cannot start the practice of Yoga without following, at least, a few simple procedures. One of the most important is moderation—not only moderation in eating but moderation in entertainment, moderation in everything. This is the middle-path. Lord Krishna says in the Gita, ‘This yoga which I teach is not for him who eats too much or who eats too little’. The key words: Eats too much or eats too little. ‘Mitahara vikarasaya’, which means, to eat light food, a controlled dietary pattern and also controlled indulgence in all activities of life.
