WHY THE YOGIC SEQUENTIAL INTAKE OF THE FOODS HAVING DIFFERENT TASTES IS MOST EFFECTIVE?

The Ayurveda texts describe six different tastes. However, there exist only five main tastes according to the Shiv Svarodaya, an ancient spiritual text. These five tastes correspond to the Panch-Tattva or the five elements.

"माहेयं मधुरं स्वादं कषायं जलमेव च ।
तीक्ष्णं तेज: समीरोअम्ल आकाशं कटुकंतथा ।।157।।"
It seems that the foods with varying tastes in the meal must be taken as per the following sequence and not as per your own whims and fancies if you wish to remain healthy and strong:
(1) The Madhur (Sweet-tasting) foods




(2) The Kasaiilaa (Salt-
tasting) foods













(3) The Teekhaa/Teetaa (Sharp-tasting) foods
