Here you go!
Spirituality:

1. Find a spiritual master

There is nothing that grace of Guru can't do. It can make a

- Illiterate person become a scholar
- Disable person climb a mountain
- Show direction to a lost soul
I know a guru is sent by God when the seeker becomes spiritually mature but that doesn't mean you stop looking for one.

There are two types of toilets.

The western toilet where you sit and poop and the Indian toilet where you squat and poop.
In 2003, a group of scientists conducted a study that involved 28 people.

The participants were supposed to poop in two positions: sitting on a high toilet and squatting.

Scientists agreed that pooping was easier and took a minute less for participants who were squatting.

Intermittent fasting can make you gain weight.

🧵👇
I am not saying that intermittent fasting is bad or doesn't work.

No!

It works great for a lot of people and helps them achieve their health goals as it gives them an 8 hours window to eat their food, giving their eating habits a solid structure.
But intermittent fasting will fail when you eat caloric-dense food instead of nutrient-dense food during your eating window.

Because every calorie is not the same.

Calories consumed through a cookie are not the same as calories consumed through a banana.

Recently, @naval tweeted about fasting.

So, I thought there won't be a better time to talk about a practice that has kept me in top form

- Physically,
- Emotionally and
- Spiritually for a long long time.

What I am going to talk about is very scientific.

Let's go!
When should we fast?

On every Ekadashi!

Ekadashi is a date in the Hindu calendar.

But for many of you who aren't familiar with that, it is the 11th day from the waxing and waning of the moon.

This is only for vegetarians.
For the non-vegetarians I will come back to the question of “When” a bit later.

Why Should We Fast on Ekadashi?

I will be first giving you the scientific reason and it is full of technical stuff so hold on to your seats & let's get started!
