Modern scientific research has proved that even secondary gems increase planetary rays & these can be used for healing purposes.

Howard Beckman (1) writes " One example is we have identified obvious beneficial effects of using white sapphire for increasing planetary rays of Venus from our own research over many years. The secretary of the P G A, Mr Richard Shaw Brown, (2) through his 3 decades in this field of planetary gemology has also proven the efficacy of certain colours of the tourmaline family for increasing benefic planetary rays of Mercury and the Sun.

Astrology , Holistic Medicine & Ayurveda

Symbolism behind Vedic temples

Man has three bodies - physical, astral & causal. The outer wall of theVedic temple represents the physical body of man. The inner wall represents the astral body and the innermost wall represents the Causal body. Deep within these three bodies is the Self, the Atman who is represented by the Deity ! The word temple is derived from the Latin word tempulum, a place where Law and Justice can be administered. The principle behind the temple, is Know Thyself ! Am I a god, then? Yes In these pure features I behold Creative Nature to soul unfold ( Goethe ) In other words man suffers from three types of illnesses - physical, mental & spiritual. Holistic Medicine takes the Tripod of Life - Body, mind and Self into consideration.

Vedic Holistic Medicine ( Ayurveda) maintains that not only the physical factor but the other factors - mental & spiritual play a pivotal role in the health of the patient.

Astrology & Yoga Therapy

The root Cause of all Disease - Bhoga or Sensory enjoyments Bhoga ( enjoyments of the senses ) is Roga ( Disease). It can only be cured by Yoga ( Divine Alchemy ). All food that is tasty is detrimental to the body, declares Prakriti Therapy The food which cometh from Nature, fruits and vegetables, are alkaline by nature. Maximum health is in an alkaline body. We can only be healthy if we keep a 80%- 20% ratio. ( 80% alkalinity & 20% acidity). This means we have to eat more natural foods & less processed foods ( which are more or less acidic ). Truly speaking, processed foods,even though they taste well, are robbers as they rob us of our natural, vibrant health.

Astrology & Occult Vibratory Chemistry ( Tantra )

The Serpentine Power in individual bodies, the Kundalini, is the coiled Energy in humans, which rises during Meditation & Prayer. When She ( Kundalini ), the miscrocosmic power of the macrocosmic Shakti, rises from from the Root Chakra & reaches the other Chakras, siddhis or paranormal powers maniest. Clairvoyance, clairaudience, distant healing, the ability to see Auras & ultimately Trikala-jnana ( the power to know Past, Present & future ) all manifest in the aspirant. The aspirant should not be intoxicated by these siddhis. If he tries to exhibit the siddhis or paranormal powers, he may not reach the Goal of Life. Instead he should ignore these powers of the mind & continue his Tapas till he is liberated.

Books as the source of knowledge The Greek Biblion or the Sankrit Veda means Knowledge which is represented by books. Books, therefore, represent the Tree of Knowledge ( the Bodhi Tree ), whose branches all sciences are!
