    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.

    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, 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.

    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 little finger represents Earth
    • the ring finger represents Water
    • the middle finger represents Air
    • the index finger represents Ether (Akasha)
    • the thumb represents Fire

    The planets ruling these fingers and elements are:

    • Mercury (earth/little finger)
    • Sun or Moon (water/ring finger)
    • Saturn (air/middle finger)
    • Jupiter (ether/index finger)
    • No specific planet rules the thumb

    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 of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto in the universe, so therefore no gems correspond to these planets. Subsequently, with the discovery of these three planets, later astrologers have associated dark stones such as black coral or onyx with Pluto, iridescent types of opals with Neptune and amethyst with Uranus. The Vedic astrology, however, took into reckoning the lunar nodes: Rahu and Ketu. Garnet is prescribed for Rahu and Cat's Eye is for Ketu.

    Power of Gem Therapy

    Gems do influence our body and act mainly to energise our life forces. As most of the gems mentioned above are very expensive, astrologers have found substitutes for the gems. The substitutes have similar effects with reduced efficacy. Given below are the substitutions of the precious gems. As red coral is not a precious gem, its substitution is not needed.

    Precious Gems Substitutes
    Ruby Garnet or Sunstone
    Pearl Moonstone
    Emerald Peridot or Jade
    Yellow Sapphire Yellow Topaz or Citrine
    Diamond Clear Zircon
    Blue Sapphire Amethyst
    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 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 increase the energies of Mercury. Such herbs work a miracle on the human nerves and mind, helping to maintain 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 the 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 are 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 the human body in the light of the particular colour specifically required. A person can receive more exposure 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.
