74. WE SHOULD NOT READ ANY BOOK WHILE EATING
- Some of us keep reading a book while eating. Digestion will not happen properly for these people. The reason is that, when we read a book, our eyes, mind, thoughts etc. all will be only on the matter that we read. At that time, our mind will not order the digestive glands to secrete.
- Some people read so intensely while eating that suddenly they will see the plate and ask, “Where has the food gone?” To that extent they will be unaware of what they ate, how they ate, whether they ate with lips closed or whether they drank water while eating. All the people who read books while eating will get diseases. Therefore, please do not read any book while eating the food.
