Chapter 1 verse 32 of Parashara Smriti says

Life in the Krita has its seat in the bones ; in the Treta it has its seat in the flesh ; in the Dvapara the blood is the seat of life ; in the Kali, however, life is dependent upon food and the like

I would like to understand the meaning of this verse. It is understandable that our life depends on food in kaliyuga and we cannot live without food.

But what is meaning of rest of the verse?

  • At least this verse helps understanding how people in Krita, Treta yuga were able to perform tapasya for thousands of years (since they could live without food).
