By Neeshee Pandit Birmingham, AL True Spiritual Life cannot begin until there is the tangible reception of the Divine Person into the body-mind, felt distinctly, clearly, unmistakably, and even whole-bodily tangible and evident as the Absolute Divine.

a) An ounce of practice is better than tons of theory.
b) The 7 cultures, 32 instructions constitute the essence of the Eternal Religion (Sanatana Dharma). They are suitable for modern busy householders with fixed hours of work. Modify them to suit your covenience and increase the period gradually.
c) In the beginning, take only a few practicable resolves which form a small but definite advance over your present habits and character.
1. Health Culture:
1. Eat moderately. Eat light, simple and balanced diet. Offer to God before you eat.
2. Avoid chilies, garlic, onions, and tamarind. Give up tea, coffee, smoking, meat and alcohol.
3. Fast for at least a month. Take milk, fruit or roots.
4. Practice Yoga asanas or physical exercise for 15 to 30 minutes daily. Take a long walk or play vigorous sports daily.
