A most important key for long life according to Ayurveda is to follow Achara rasayana which means code of behavior or code of ethics. Achara Rasayanas do more than just tell us how to behave. They help us to improve our ability to choose positive behaviors and avoid making mistakes that cause ill-health and unhappiness. Just some of the writtings of years gone past.
Always speak truth
Don’t be angry
Don’t indulge in alcoholic drinks
Observe celibacy and the sexual act according to code
Don’t be violent
Avoid over exertion
Be calm and peaceful
Maintain balance in sleep
Take milk and ghee in moderate in your diet
Be know-er of place, time, and measure of activities
Plan and work accordingly
Avoid super egoism
Maintain good behavior
Engage yourself all the time in achievement of pure consciousness
Respect and serve your elders
Continuous study new sciences, advances, research and philosophies and utilize that knowledge for benefit of all human beings.
Do we need to say more about being a productive person. They knew what life was about thousands of years ago. What hapened to us.
