    Dear Swarnalatha,
    In olden days, more people slept on the floor than on the cot.
    The body moves from the horizontal to the vertical position, anyway.
    bhoomi does not necessarily mean the earth - you can assume it to be the ground /floor on which you sleep etc!!
    Thanks & love,
    C

    Hi girls,

    Good job @chitraa. Very informative. I would like to share one more sloka to chant before taking food.

    '' brahmagnou brahmanahrutham bramhevathena agandhavyam
    brahma karma samadhinam om shanti santhi shanthihi''


    This sloka can be chanted three times a day before meals for thanking brahma for his creation. Scientific reason behind this is that while chanting our focus will be on food and we can enjoy it thoroughly and satisfy ourself. I learnt this from school.
