S: Pranam Guruji Guruji is it a sin to eat stale food that may be 6-7 hours old or one day old. As my parents are working so they make the vegetable in the morning and we may eat it till the night. Pranam Guruji.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. Yes, the food which is taken after three hours of its preparation that food is considered stale food and is not good for health. Now a days people are taking being helpers. (helpless)
Dr Jagdis Kapadia: His holiness Swami ji dandawat pranam. My question is whether buddha was enlightened or not? I think Buddhism is greatest religion.
Swami Ram Swarup: My heartiest blessings to you, for a long, happy life .
The authenticity for any kind of matter in the universe is judged by giving the proof of ved mantras. It is an eternal and unchangeable Vedic law. However, as Tulsi dasji also states in his chaupai:-
“SHRUTI SAMMAT HARI BHAKTI PATH SANJUT BIRATI BIBEK.
TEHIN NA CHALHIN NAR MOH BAS, KALPANHIN PANTH ANEK.”
Meaning: Tulsi states that there is an eternal worship based on Vedas, which gives us ascetism and factual knowledge. But the people are not following the path of Vedas due to attachment (attachment with materialistic articles, pomp and show and family etc.) And the people make their own new several paths of worship.
So, nowadays when people have made their own customs then nothing can be told and committed. However, I can only say that according to four vedas when a Yogi attains Samadhi by following Vedic path and after doing hard practice of ashtang Yoga philosophy he realizes God and attains final liberation. In his full life he maintains brahmacharya and takes vegetarian food only, say Vedas . This fact has also been very well explained by Rishi Patanjali in his yog Shastra sutra 4/29,30,31.
