Sri Ramana Mahrashi used to say , "If you can starve the mind, you need not starve the body !"
>Vrats like Ekadashi involve fasting which causes discomfort. From the
>"pain and suffering" standpoint, it is better to eat three hearty meals
>than to starve yourself. Yet Vaishnavas (and for that matter Smartas) do
>it anyway because they feel it is pleasing to Vishnu Bhagawan and the joy
>of knowing that outweighs any possible pain. It is incorrect to say that
>Smartas "don't care" about the animals used in yajnas but we believe that
>in being used this way they are serving a higher purpose.
