The alcohol situation is simple. As yogis, we have decided that we do not administer any substances that alter our brain.
We say that whatever state you enter, the outcome of your actions is of that state of mind. We believe that every state can be produced in a natural way.
We can look at the yogis who have been doing this for thousands of years, or simply have a closer look at our healthy neighbor who seems to leave his house every morning with a smile on his face and a friendly greeting as you meet down the street. But where does this attitude come from? Maybe it was the right cup of tea or the proper morning smoothie vs. the morning beer to battle last night’s hangover.
