Astrology, Prakriti Therapy ( Naturopathy ) & Holistic Medicine

Naturopathy exists as one of the branches of Holistic Medicine ( Ayurveda ). Holistic Medicine has 2 aspects - The Therapeutic ( Athura Vritta ) & the Prophylactic ( Swastha Vritta ). Naturopathy is the Prophylactic or the Preventive System. It is based on the principle " Natura Sanat " ( Nature is the Healer and Doctor). As the human body is composed of the five elements ( Earth, air, water, fire and ether ) so the Five Doctors are the Elemental Five! Fasting is the best medicine ( even diseases like ulcer can be cured by fasting ) and this is known as Ether Therapy ( Akashopasana). Sun bathing is Fire Therapy ( Tejopasana). Using Water as a therapeutic element is Water Therapy ( Jalopasana).Letting the body get fresh unpolluted air is Air Therapy ( Vayu Upasana) and eating pure fruits and vegetables is Earth Therapy ( Prithvi Upasana ) Naturopathy means returning to Nature and living in rhythm with Nature, who is infinite in her wisdom! Even Allopathic scholars have admitted " Medicus curata, natura Sanat"( The physician only treats but it is Nature that heals )! The main cause of all disease is overeating and man is advised to eat only once in a day and fast once in a week !

The five major planets correspond to the Elemental Five thus


     Mars         Fire


      Mercury         Earth
     Venus         Water

No wonder in the Pythagorean system, the number five was given such tremendous importance!

Medical astrologers prescribe Ether Therapy if Jupiter is weak and Fire Therapy if Mars is weak etc. By means of the Great Art, health can be restored in the patient !


Astrology & Yoga.

Ordinary man lives in three states of Consciousness - waking, dreaming and dreamless sleep. There is a higher state of Consciousness - Transcendental Consciousness - which can be accessed via Meditation. In his Phd Thesis Dr Robert Keith Wallace has proved the existence of the Fourth State of Consciousness ( Dr Keith Wallace Phd Thesis " The Physiological effects of Transcendental Meditation - a Proposed Fourth Major State of Consciousness", the University of California and Los Angeles, 1975 ). The Fourth State ( Tureeya in Sanskrit ) is accessible to those who follow the path of Yoga. But to gain T C and get established in that state of Consciousness is not very easy. The negative elements in man - our inner enemies - are the impediments. The Wisdom of the Heavens, by analysing the negative traits in a horoscope can point out the method by which the Negative Aspect of man can be tamed so that he becomes eligible for higher states of Consciousness.

The Culmination of Yoga - Universal Love

Even though Union via Wisdom ( Jnana Yoga ) is great, Union via Love ( Bhakthi Yoga ) is the Redeeming Grace ! The salvation of the world is in Love & through Love. The heart has its own reasons which the head need not know ! Love is the Saviour! Universal Love is the Redeemer ! Love Divine alone can confer Bliss !

Tempting God's light down to the ignorant race

His Love to heal the sorrow in men's hearts

His Bliss to heal the unhappiness of this world!
