Ayurveda - Secret Of Good Health
नित्यं हिताहारविहारसेवी समीक्ष्यकारी विषयेष्वसक्त: ।
दाता सम: सत्यपर: क्षमावानाप्तोपसेवी च भवत्यरोग: ॥
One who indulges daily in healthy foods and activities, who discriminates the good and bad of everything and then acts wisely, who is not attached too much to the objects of the senses, who develops the habit of charity, of considering all as equal, of truthfulness, of pardoning and keeping company of good persons only, becomes free from all diseases.
