We know that the body is nourished and nurtured by food. We require vegetables, rice, rice, wheat, milk and so on. We like having diferent tastes, different flavours. In fact, the health of the body requires calciumj, magnesium, zinc, iron, vitamins, minerals and so on and do forth. . Similarly, the Yama requies an all-round practice for spiritual growth and spiritual health. Yogy has to be used as as spiritual groth and spiritual health. asana has to be used as a spiritual food. The pranayama has to get spiritually nourished and nurtured. Therefore, his pratyahara has to get spiritually nourished and nurtured. Therefore, his Dharana has to have its vitamins, minerals and other nourishing factors. The food dhould be such that we are able to digest it easily and it should provides vital energy. Similarly, the Dhayana should be such that it ignites interest and adds to knowledge. It should be intellectually digestible, adoptable and acceptable according to the capacity of the sadhaka.
