Irrespective of our innate constitution,
• In growth period of childhood, our body is Kapha-heavy and this is natural.
• In Karma period of Grihasthi, our body is pitta-heavy and this is natural.
• In drawing back period of Vanprastha, our body is Vata-heavy and this is natural but painful, root of all diseases.
Of three fundamental principles, Kapha, Pitta, Vayu; Vayu is most difficult to conceive by ordinary state of senses. This is the vital force of the existence. It is present everywhere in the body. It is self-begotten in its origin and is said to be an evidence of God pervading in our body. It is unconditional, absolute and all-pervading in nature. It is the cause of origin, growth and destruction of all beings. It is invisible but its works are manifest. It is light, cold, dry, mobile and piercing. Sound and touch are its attributes to know it better.
At the root of all diseases, lies the Vayu as cause. It is known as Prana, Udana, Apana, Samana, Vyana..
Aggravation of Vayu is most common cause of modern life style diseases.
How do we disturb mother’s loving nature?
• Violent exercise (Gym i.e. mechanical regime, over-exercise) or any physical activity in excess
• Excessive sexual intercourse.
• Excessive reading or any intellectual activity in excess or by force
• Over eating, irregular eating
• Suppression of wind, urine, tears, stool, semen, vomiting and sneezing
When Vayu is aggravated in stomach
• Pain in the sides and above region of the heart (Modern doctors create false cases of bypass surgery out of this situation)
When vayu is aggravated in intestines
• Constipation – root cause of many subsequent pathological situations
When such deranged Vayu occupies sense organs, it deprives them of their respective faculties.
• Growing number of Spectacles in society indicates high level of patients suffering from deranged Vayu
• As you grow older, your body becomes more Vayu-heavy and your senses efficiency decreases.
Deranged Vayu in blood = ulcers
Deranged Vayu in flesh = Tumor with pain
Deranged Vayu in fat = Tumor without pain (Benign tumor)
Deranged Vayu in veings = Swelling or contraction – a sign of ageing
Deranged Vayu in ligaments = Palsy, convulsion
Deranged Vayu in joints = painful swelling i.e. Gout
Deranged Vayu in bones = Bone ache
Deranged Vayu in marrows dry it up and gives rise to acute pain in entire body
Deranged Vayu in semen = tends to stop the flow of semen (low motility)
Deranged Vayu at all level = Paralysis
Take care of Prana Shakti.
To begin with:
Anand M Kulkarni ji writes:
“Amongst Food, Water and Air, the most precious, i.e. without which man cannot survive for even a few seconds, is AIR.
It is also the most abundant.
It is also the most benevolent, keeping us alive, irrespective of nation caste or creed.
AIR is in fact that manifestation of Prana (Mother of all types of Energy), which is the object of meditative surrender, provided by Nature for all mortal humans.
For a few minutes daily, relaxing the body and closing the eyes, just let Prana shakti do the breathing. In other words simply follow the Air that AUTOMATICALLY enters or leaves the nostrils.
This paves the way toward removal of all known and unknown lopsidedness in the mind.
If nothing, at least gratitude is conveyed to Almighty Nature this way.”
Gau-aadharit farming and food can help balancing deranged Vayu.
Unfortunately, physical vardhakya (वार्धक्य) appears very early in Grihastha stage in our times (Sometimes in childhood too! i.e. Grey hair in teen age, spectacles at age 5 or early). Several reasons – life style, food, environment – all are aggravating Vata.
How can we control this pandemic of rapid ageing?
• Inclusion of food grown using Gau-prasad in daily diet (Use of Milk, Butter milk, Mutra, Dung in farming)
• Cultivating old habits like
o पाद प्रक्षालन
o Eating Paan after meal (if it is perennial habit in your area)
o Regular meal timinings
• Shunning habits like
o Eating processed food
o Excessive intercourses (For Condom generation)
o Late night meals/movies/travelling/reading
Will add more as thoughts and observations accumulates regarding this subject.
