THE way of life and eating habits in present times are not suitable with nature, and Jain tradition teaches us to adopt a balanced and environmentfriendly lifestyle, said President Ramnath Kovind on Tuesday. “Adopting lifestyle according to the daily movement of the Sun is an easy way to stay healthy. This is a lesson that we get from the ideal lifestyle of Jain saints,” said President after laying the foundation stone for Bhagwan Mahavir Super Speciality Hospital in Delhi on Tuesday. “The way of life and eating habits in present times is not suitable with the nature. We know that Jain saints and their disciplined followers eat their food only between sunrise and sunset. Adopting the lifestyle according to the daily movement of the Sun is an easy way to stay healthy. This is the lesson we get from the ideal lifestyle of Jain saints,” he said. Kovind cautioned the people that COVID-19 is not completely over yet and asked them to be alert and follow all the Government’s guidelines. He said, during the coronavirus pandemic, masks have been used as an effective means of protection against the virus. Speaking about the importance of face masks, the President said, “We know that the introduction of surgical masks into modern history dates back to the year 1897 when surgeons began using masks to protect themselves from bacteria during operations. But Jain saints understood the importance of masks centuries ago.”
