                                                                            Ayurveda: the Divine Science

                                                                        Holistic Healing, based in Astrology

 

This is the fifth article in a remarkable series on Ayurveda by Prof. K. K. Bhaumik, Chairman of Coordinating Council of Association of Astrology & Allied Sciences. A renowned figure on astro-occult sciences, he is an internationally acclaimed authority in this field. Though modern medicine and curative methods do not recognize the role of divinity in the management of diseases, Ayurveda is essentially a religious medical science, based in astrology, which believes in holistic curing of ailments through a pronounced spiritual methodology. Ayurveda helps opening our mind, soul and body to cosmic forces of life and prepares human beings for spiritual re-examination through its unique and highly metaphysical curative process.



He was a young, bubbling man of 31 when he was seriously maimed and mauled by a street accident. His mobility was completely jeopardised as both his feet were wasted. A series of major surgeries failed to make him stand on his feet again and he lost all his desire to live when a renowned orthopaedic surgeon advised him to seek divine blessings and a few exercises. Seven years later, he now walks without any crutches, however, with a limp.
Power of Prayer -- and Exercise!

 

Sustained exercises helped him to regain the strength of his muscles, while prayers seeking divine blessings helped him to get over the psychological trauma. He gradually retrieved his faith in himself and developed a strong desire to walk again. Prayers restored his desire to live. The miracle that happened with the young man was largely due to his faith in divinity, which restored in him a positive will and a faith in him.

 

Root Cause of Diseases

 

This lack of faith coupled with negative feelings often is the root cause of diseases and their perpetuation. Hence, according to Ayurveda, the first step to healing is to open up the mind to divinity or cosmic life forces through restoration of positive feelings and an indomitable desire to be healed.

Astro-occult Ayurvedic practitioners also recommend the wearing of gems, either as rings or as pendants hanging down from the neck as a cure for diseases after a thorough astrological calculation and identification of the exact malefic planet and its negative influences. The doses are the size of the gems.

According to vedic astrology, the fingers on our hands correspond to the five elements:

The planets ruling these fingers and elements are:
By wearing gems related to the planets and elements on the appropriate fingers one can amplify the powers of the elements, counter negative influences of planets and enhance their benign influences on human life and body. The process not only effectively reduces possibilities of diseases caused by the malefic influences of planets by augmenting the powers of the elements, it also helps in the curing process.


The chart given below shows the gems that correspond to the planets:

Planets Gems
Sun Ruby
Moon Pearl
Mars Red Coral
Mercury Emerald
Jupiter Yellow Sapphire
Venus Diamond
Saturn Blue Sapphire
Rahu
North Lunar Node
Garnet
Ketu
South Lunar Node
Cat's Eye

The ancient Indian astrologers were not aware of the existence Uranus, Neptune and Pluto in the universe and therefore no gems correspond to these planets. Subsequently, with the discovery of the three planets, astrologers later on have associated dark stones such as black coral or onyx with Pluto, iridescent type of opals with Neptune and amethyst with Uranus. The vedic astrology, however, took into reckoning the lunar nodes: Rahu and Ketu. While garnet is prescribed for Rahu and cat's eye is for Ketu.

Herbs and Colours
Even herbs have been found to increase the benevolent energies of planets. Black pepper, ginger, clove etc are good for Sun. They are primarily stimulants and increase digestion, promote circulation etc. Cool, sweet and salty herbs like sandalwood, Shatavari etc are good for the Moon. Such herbs are mainly demulcent and emollient and are like a tonic for the lungs. Warm, pungent and stimulant herbs like garlic, asafoetidas etc are recommended for Mars. Mild and harmonising herbs like bhringaraj, jatamansi etc effectively increases the energies of Mercury. Such herbs work miracle on human nerves and mind and help maintaining a perfect balance of all the cosmic life forces. Olive oil, sesame oil and ashwagandha are recommended for Jupiter. Lotus, rose and saffron work miracle on Venus. Such herbs work on our hearts, kidneys and human reproductive system, especially the female.

Colours too have miraculous healing properties and powers to neutralise malevolent influences of planets on human health and mind. Colours can be used in the same way as gems as colours too correspond to specific planets. Given below some of the colours and their corresponding planets:

Planets Colours
[vedic colours vary from Western colours]
Sun Red
Moon White
Mars Dark Red
Mercury Green
Jupiter Yellow, Gold
Venus Transparent, Variegated
Saturn Dark blue, Black
Rahu Ultraviolet
Ketu Infrared


Effective colour therapy entails bathing human body in the light of the particular colour specifically required. A person can be exposed even more to that particular colour through clothes, flowers, environment etc.

Ayurveda is intimately bound up with Astrology and with the planetary rulerships of herbs, gems, and other natural items. The skillful use of the correct remedy, as determined by its planetary rulership, can neutralise the effects of malefic planets on our health and general well-being. This valuable series of articles by one of the world's leading authorities will be continued on this site over coming months.
