How Should We Eat?
Acharya Shankara has a beautiful hymn Sadhana Panchakam, in which he says:
 
kshyud vyadischa chikitsyatam pratidinam
bhikshausadham vyunjyatam
“Hunger and appetite is a disease that you must treat every day by taking the food you get through begging as medicine.”
Loving and Divine Soul,
Let the choicest blessings of God and the masters be upon all of you. I take this opportunity to pray for you and send my best wishes on the occasion of Thanksgiving Day, which we are celebrating on November 23 this year. Life is a flower that blossoms over the course of time. It is colored with beauty when we cultivate thanksgiving in our daily lives.

Although monasteries are an old system in all religions, an ashram is a quite new concept in the West. The practice of living in an ashram appeared in the West with Swami Vivekananda, then later with our beloved master Paramahamsa Yoganandaji, and today ashrams contain people of many spiritual backgrounds.
 
The modern approach to ashram is a spiritual abode where residents engage in sincere spiritual living with love and compassion. Visitors come to charge their lives with spiritual experience and return to society with a new understanding.
