    Ayurveda
    the science of life – [part 3]

    The third part of this illuminating article by K. K. Bhaumik, concludes the discussion on Ayurveda, the science of life, by examining the technical effects of herbs, roots, extracts and metals as prescribed through a full astrological understanding of the underlying principles.

    Ayurveda prescribes the use of multi-faceted herbs and roots to counter negative planetary influences. These roots and herbs are tied to the upper arm (right arm for men and left arm for women) for a specified period of time. This mode of treatment is called healing with herbs. The following herbs and roots are used to neutralise the harmful effects of the planets:

    Planets Herbs and Roots
    (Indian names - click for herbal glossary )
    Sun Bilwa mul [Aegle marmelos]
    Moon Khirika [Mimusops kauki]
    Mars Ananta mul [Hemidesmus indicus]
    Mercury Bridhadwarak mul [Argyreia speciosa]
    Jupiter Brahmajati mul [Clerodendrum indicum]
    Venus Rambasak mul [Adhatoda vasica]
    Saturn Swetberela mul [Sida cordifolia]
    Rahu Swet Chandan mul [Santalum album]
    Ketu Aswagandha [Withania somnifera]


    Extracts of the herbs and roots can also be taken orally, in the form of mother tinctures [designated "Q" – ed.] commonly used in Homoeopathy. These herbs and roots and their extracts in the form of mother tincture have proved equally effective in countering the negative influences of planets on human beings. The extracts of the roots and herbs as mother tincture are available in any homoeopathic outlet. The doses, however, should be taken after consulting an experienced astro-occult practitioner. The names and doses of some herbal extracts or mother tinctures are given below:

    Planets Extract/Mother Tincture (Q) Doses
    Sun Aeglefolia – Q 5 drops
    Venus Hydrocotyle S – Q 10 drops
      Meshashringi – Q 10 drops
    Jupiter Chirata – Q 15 drops
    Moon Honey One spoon
    Ketu Ashwagandha – Q 10 drops
    Saturn Shefalika – Q 10 drops
      Dhurba – Q 10 drops
      Honey 20 drops
    Mars Ananta mul – Q 10 drops
      Panchamukhi Jaba – Q 10 drops
      Neem – Q 10 drops
    Rahu Swet Chandan – Q 5 drops
    or paste: spoon
    Mercury Hydrocotyle – Q 10 drops
      Amala – Q 5 drops


    Some metals have proved to be extremely effective in neutralising the malefic effects of planets on human beings. The chart given below shows some of the metals that have been proven in countering the malefic effects of planets:

    Planets Metals
    Sun Gold/Copper
    Moon Silver
    Mars Gold
    Mercury Brass
    Jupiter Gold
    Venus Silver
    Saturn Iron/Lead
    Rahu Panch Dhatu
    (metallic alloy of 5 metals: gold, silver, copper, tin & lead)
    Ketu Panch Dhatu


    Astrologically, the twelve zodiac signs, each representing a part of human body, have a tremendous influence on our mind and body and play a pivotal role in causing human ailments. The following chart shows which zodiac sign represents which part of human body:

    Zodiac Sign Bodily Correspondence
    (These vary somewhat in Indian Astrology from Western counterparts)
    Aries Head
    Taurus Neck, throat and face
    Gemini Upper arms and chest
    Cancer Elbows and heart
    Leo Belly
    Virgo Hand and waist
    Libra Urinary organs
    Scorpio Sexual organs
    Sagittarius Thighs
    Capricorn Knees
    Aquarius Legs, ankles etc
    Pisces Toes and feet


    Within the Vedic system, gem therapy is associated mainly with the science of Astrology. The nine main gemstones all have planetary connections. Included in the Vedic list of planets are Rahu and Ketu, the Dragon's Head and Tail or north and south nodes of the Moon. These two nodes of the Moon have powerful, often dark and dire effects on individuals during periods when the nodes afflict their horoscopes, and are therefore held to have planetary status.

    Apart from taking account of the planetary associations, traditional Ayurveda uses gemstones as internal medicine. The gemstones are reduced via complex processes to ashes or
    bhasmas. However, they must be used in ways that leave their substance completely intact. Gem tinctures can also be used in healing. The bhasmas are used to treat physical conditions, some of which are listed in the table below:

    Bhasmas/Ashes Usages
    Ruby ash For vayu, pitta and cough
    Pearl ash It is sweet and cool and good for eyes
    Coral For cough, pitta etc
    Emerald Sweet and cool and good for acidity and heat
    Moonstone For cough and vayu
    Diamond Makes body strong
    Sapphire For improper behaviour and neural pains

    He served leading enterprises of the Government of India in several senior management capacities. A lawyer and advocate, he combines a command of the material world with a truly spiritual vocation.
    Born into a spiritual family, at the early age of 15 he attracted the attention of a great sadhu. The sadhu gave Shri Bhaumik the Goddess Durga mantra.

Every year, armed with blessings from great spiritual men, Shri Bhaumik in his quest for universal enlightenment visits the temples of Tripureshwari in Tripura and elsewhere in India to perform puja.
    Along with his formal education, he soon mastered the divine science of vedic astrology. Because of the accuracy of his predictions, his reputation as an astro-occult expert soon spread across the globe. He, however, has always used his powers, both spiritual and astrological, only for the welfare of mankind.
