In addition to gaining knowledge about Hinduism, we are also expected to live according to that knowledge.
There are verses:
acharah prabhavo dharmah
suna: puccham iva vyartham pANDityam dharma varjitam
Dharma lies in achara.
The knowledge of a Pundit who does not follow its tenets, is useless like a dog's tail (neither covers the private parts nor able to drive away flies. anything, just like the dog’s tail).
I'm curious to find out how users here try to mold their lifestyle according to tenets of shastras.
For example, getting up before sunrise (brahma-muhurta) daily, avoiding garlic/onion in diet, avoiding sensual temptations, doing sandhya-vandana, chanting sahasranama, japa, fasting, visiting temples/kshetras etc. (not that I do all these, just listing some stuff)
What pratices have been doing for long time?
Did learning something through this site affect your mind enough to bring a major change in daily life?
