😳 WHY❓❓❓

why leaves become yellow in the absence of light

In absence of light, photosynthesis does not take place. So synthesis of starch does not occur, so in dark the leaves become yellow or pale green. The most stable pigment is chlorophyll

What is the history behind shaving one’s head after the death of a loved one in some Hindu traditions?

The yogic science has very precise instructions of when and how to shave the hair and when not. It is a very important part of meditation and sadhna.

Mundan, as they call it, is the ritual of shaving the head post the death of an elderly member in the family. … It is believed that shaving off the hair helps men to let go of their ego. It gives them a sense of responsibility and reminds them to be obedient and become more selfless while performing their deeds.

So shaving off the hair creates an upsurge of energies in turn creating a higher level of consciousness which helps in concentrating in ritual process which are created to be performed with that level of consciousness. 🙏🏻

Benefits of Eating Dates:
Dried dates are high in fibre. Just adding dates to your everyday diet increases the fibre intake for your body. The high amount of fibre in dates is beneficial to the digestive system and also prevents constipation. Benefits of eating dates also include blood sugar control as fibre slows down the digestion process and prevents blood levels from spiking. This means the calories from a single date are enough to keep your health in excellent condition.

Natural Sweeteners:
Dates are a natural source of fructose, a natural sugar found in fruits. This gives them a naturally sweet and caramel-like taste—which is another health benefit of the date, making it an excellent substitute for white sugar.

You can use a paste made from dates in recipes to replace white sugar
