About the Author

Madhava Das, also known as “Dasa”, is president of and chief researcher at Nutritional Research Maui, and holds a Cornell University Certificate in Plant-based Nutrition. Before taking to healthy living, Dasa, as a young man suffered from chronic lung congestion and extremely high blood pressure. In 1975 Madhava received professor Arnold Ehret’s Mucusless Diet Healing System Lessen Course completed in 1922 which says vegetables and fruits are mucusless foods – similar to the modern research based Eat Your Way To Health, Plant Life Cycle Diet.

In 1976 Dasa adopted Ehret’s diet, more or less on faith, as science had not yet fully discovered and established the health benefits of the high nutrient per calorie, calorie normal, whole-food plant-based diet. Dasa is also a pioneering aviator being an original founder of the modern sport of hang gliding and the United States Hang Gliding Association; and having contributed to the design of the first successful human powered aircraft, the Gossamer Condor, now hanging at the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum in Washington, D.C. beside the original Wright Brothers Flyer and the Apollo 11 command module, Columbia, that took the first humans to walk on the moon.

FOOD YOGI talking at URBAN YOGA – Sept 22

FOOD YOGI talking at URBAN YOGA – Sept 22

On Saturday, 22 September, the Food Yogi, Priya Vrata will be leading a discussion on the art and science of food yoga at URBAN YOGA in Melbourne.

Come and learn about the secrets of connecting with food so that you nourish your body, mind and soul.

In his new book, FOOD YOGA, the food yogi makes the case that if we make the effort to focus on this very essential part of our lives—eating—incredible and transformative things can happen to us. Biodynamic Guru, Peter Proctor, also believes quality food helps people make moral decisions and have moral thoughts — “It’s not just stuff to fill your stomach. It actually gives you a real quality of thought and you realize that this is what the world needs.”

When you are living consciously, beginning with conscious eating, you will do so in all your thoughts and actions. Your life will be consistent and in harmony with your environment. In other words, you will complement your environment and not disturb it. Rather than being a “spoke in the wheel” of Nature, you will be a welcome participant in the garden of unlimited possibility.

Food is the most basic necessity of life. Its only purpose is to nourish the body, mind and soul. Food, therefore, should give us life, cleanse our body and also nourish our spirit. Eating food should never be just about fueling the physical body.

Priya will also share his experience of traveling to more than 50 countries expanding the world’s largest plantbased food relief, Food for Life (

Leading consciousness magazine, VERITAS, published a three page article on Food Yoga written by director of Food for Life Global, Paul Rodney Turner. The article is an introduction to food yoga, but also shares many of Paul’s early experiences as a monk and humanitarian, including his work during the 2005 Tsunami relief in Sri Lanka.

“The path of food yoga is about reconnecting with your food in such a way that it nourishes your body, mind and soul. This is I believe is a major flaw in most lifestyle or nutrition programs being espoused today.

My background as a monk and my volunteer work for Food for Life Global, have taught me just how powerful food is as a uniter and healer of our body, mind and soul. In fact, the mission for the charity is not to feed hungry people, but rather, to unite the world through pure food. A food yogi is one who lives a balanced and conscientious life fueled by the uniting power of pure foods that have been prepared with loving intention.

Food yoga is, in essence, a discipline that embraces all spiritual paths by accepting one core truth – that food in its most pure form is divine and therefore an excellent medium for spiritual purification.” – (Excerpt from article)

The 13th edition of VERITAS magazine is available online and through most newsagents.


On October 20th, Paul will conduct a one day Food Yoga immersion workshop at the Unity of Melbourne centre.  The goal of the Food Yoga one day immersion workshop is to inspire people to live and eat more consciously, by making your food choices and their relationship with food an integral part of their spiritual journey. Register now (First ten people receive a free book or DVD).

VERITAS, Latin for Truth, will focus on increasing consciousness and offering people solutions to personal struggles or questions of existence. The content will include topics such as consciousness, holistic health and healing, esoterism, alternative therapies, ancient wisdom, lost civilizations and science and spirituality, and the many subjects that dominate our lives such as climate change and vaccinations, just to name a few. The magazine will offer and explore many alternative faiths, beliefs and theories to encourage you, the reader to look outside the box and explore the connection between science and spirituality as we finally start to bridge that gap.

Our mission at VERITAS is to assist our readers to find solutions in reaching their higher consciousness; something, which we believe has sadly been forgotten or lost. By reaching that higher consciousness, you will be able to find and achieve what we all truly want, what we all wish for, deep down inside — that yearning that we all feel, but to attain it with true understanding, wisdom and awareness that allows us to live in peace with all humanity and our planet.

Our world is changing at a rate of knots that is unprecedented during any other time in recorded history and we have all chosen to be here at this time. But by being here we have not chosen just to exist but to assist with the changes that are now taking place on our planet.

VERITAS came about from a need to provide solutions to the many ongoing issues that we face today. We feel that there is lots of information in the media trying to change our perspectives about what we face in the world rather than on how to go about actually making the change.

You won’t find doom and gloom theories in VERITAS, but rather positive articles inspiring people to explore the many options our universe has to show us. However, we won’t be shying away from difficult topics, but instead we will embrace them

and look for solutions.

VERITAS Magazine is about awakening consciousness in humanity. People are realizing that we are capable of so much more and humanity is starting to become more aware of what has either been hidden or lost through ancient civilizations.

VERITAS is a solution-based magazine that aims to provide mind-expanding and cutting edge information so we may raise our consciousness to transform our world to a place of Truth, Peace, Love, Compassion and Ultimate Happiness for all.

VERITAS aims to provide a balanced view of the world, not just the propagated view of the mass media outlets. We have adopted the task of providing thought provoking material to our readers so that your minds and your thinking may be stretched and developed.
