    Eating Onions & Garlics

    I eat small onions liberally and big ones occasionally. But, I can't stand the smell of garlic. It's all one's personal preferences.

    Onion and Garlic produce gas at most inconvenient situations, causing great embarrassment.

    I dread to enter a toilet used by a garlic eater, even though water was properly flushed.

    Some say, Onion and Garlic promote one's sexual instincts, even though they have no role to play in improving one's potency and sustenance, unlike viagra.

    May be, one should try installing the modern day pressurised flush-outs.

    Btw, closets in Kerala must be aromatic then...which are dumped with Jack Fruit based stools.

    In one of the pariharams for misdemenour Manu prescribes after the vratham or/ during the vratham shallots (which are small onions) to be eaten .I got the above from a translationof Manusmruti by a Harvard Scholar.

    Doubts and Clarifications

    Interesting subject indeed. But it is vast Subject too. Actually we should go to Grihya Sutras like Apasthamba Bhudayana, Gauthama or Vasishta that we are expected follow in our daily life. For instance our family is supposed to follow Apasthama grihya sutra in our daily life. These sutras have given lengthy guidance of dos and don'ts in respect of "Eating and forbidden food". under "Prsna I Patala 5 Khanda 16" to "Prasna I Patala 6 Khanda 19". Red garlic, Onions and certain mushrooms are forbidden in the Sutras. No reason has been given for them. Apart from these texts, the subject of Eating and Food is discussed in detail in Manu Smriti, Satpatha Brahmana, Aithreya Brahmana, Bagvat Gita also.

    While going through the texts on the subject it is found that eating of Animal flesh and drinking of intoxicants are also covered under various dos and don'ts. Consequently next question in my mind was whether the Brahmins are vegetarians and teetotalers always ?

    Regards,
    Brahmanyan.

    ToAll: Eating habits changed time to time from one yugam to another, in one yugam eating Animal flesh and others are not followed in the next yugam. Garlic, small or Big onions,and other eatables,found in this World only. Our sutras and smrutis the big mistake was explnations by certern scholars and todays day to day life we have to decide whis good for health. I am a pure Veg.( before cutting greens and vegitables one minute prayer is a must our Siddhers done this before going to pick mecdicinal plants) S.R.K.

    When in Amavasai we generate a heat in Our body which we should keep for the whole day! The onion will reduce the heat. The Amavasai it is better to body in heat form as the MOONS vibrations will Suck some air from our Body.

    So it si better to avoid Onions
