(CNS): Thus spoke Swami Sampoojya Poornamritanandapuri, at the inaugural function of Amrita Diabetic Foot Conference (ADFC 2011), organized by Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences and Research Centre (AIMS), Kochi, India (6-7 May 2011). In the words of Swamiji, 'we can reach a supreme state of bliss if we respect our body, as the human body is a temple in which God resides.' So we must refrain from insulting anybody and must respect everybody. It is important for all of us to keep our bodies healthy and pure as they are too precious to be neglected. This can be done by eating proper and pure food so that we remain fit to perform our duties towards society. Out of this respect arises the need to control diseases like diabetes.
