Though onion and Garlic are veg food why it should be avoided in viratha days.Is there any pramanam about this
Srimathe Ramanujaya Namaha,
Namaskaram HemaAshok BhagavAta,
Onion and Garlic enhances ones Rajo guna like Agression, Anger, Jeaolusy etc….) and Tamo guna like Ignorance, fear, etc……. and these food helps one to continue the Birth-Suffering-Death repeated cycle.
For those who need to be Satva Guna like Good qualities like Knowledge, Wisdom, Moral behaviour, Servittude attitude towards Supreme Almighty GOD SriKrishna, and for Moksham (release from Birth-Suffering-Death cycle) etc..one needs to follow Satvik foods as prescribed by Poorvacharyas ALL THE TIME (EACH TIME) and not just on some days or some occasions.
So it’s up to ones own choice what they want to choose like No Onion and No Garlic all the time or No Onion and No Garlic only at times.

Om sri sai Ram. Maha Periyava saranam
Namaskaram ElayaAlwar swamy,
Actually it is a doubt by my son Hariharan.He is a great fan to velukkudi swami’s voice and speech from the age of 14.When he was in school he regularly listened swami’s 6 to 6.30 a.m speech in vijay T.V.At that time he was very much interested in listening Vidura Needhi and Yatcha prasnam.Now he is 23 and is fully absorbed by his studies and not spending time to this.I am sure he will be back within 3 or 4 years.
On my side also i am very grateful to velukkudi swami.I am listening en pani nearly 2 to 3 years.It has changed my behavior a lot in a desirable way.
I have listened enpani 748 and convey this to my son.
You are doing a great job ElayaAlwar swamy.A great salute to you.
