This post is the most valuable piece on Surya Namaskar you will find in any language other that Sanskrit. Thousands of pretenders have flooded book store shelves and the Internet with "ready made" Surya namaskar takes-- all bull. First of all SURYA NAMASKAR is not a physical exercise. It is something much more profound, which needs deep understanding of Sanskrit Vedic literature and Sanatana Dharma. It is a complete Sadhana, inclusive of Yogasana ( exercise ) , Mantra ( sound longitudinal waves ) , Pranayama ( breathing ) and Chakra meditation ( scalar energy vortex transceiver ) . Surya Namaskar was devised as Yoga 7000 years ago, to facilitate LYMPH DRAINAGE in an amazing manner. This was properly understood by modern science only 70 years go. Our lymphatic system has vessels just like our circulatory system, but does not have a pump (whereas the circulatory system has the heart). In order to clear the “lymph” (the clear extracellular fluid that is collected by the lyphatic vessels and filtered by the lymph nodes), the lymphatic system must be pumped manually. The lymph movement relys on contraction of smooth muscle tissue lining the walls of lymph vessels (peristalsis). Movement of skeletal muscles is also important for driving lymph along the systems network of vessels to lymph nodes and from these to lymph ducts where the lymph tissue joins cardiovascular circulation. Women who do Surya Namaskar do NOT get breast cancer. Surya Namaskar resonates the Pineal gland and DNA-- to speed up your chakras, and enlarge your aura-- I will get to the technical points later., I learnt Surya Namaskar at the age of 7, taught to me by the Kalari gurikkal. Many years later, at my school we did Surya Namaskar in a group. It was compulsory. Now let me introduce breathing. Breathing does magic . It must be started and stopped at the right time. You must be AWARE of the breathing process. Basically, inhale when stretching and exhale when bending. Now let me introduce the sound MANTRAS in Sanskrit, the oldest language of this planet, which originated from a 12 strand DNA of a Maharishi. The 12 Names of Surya - the Sun 1) Om Maitreya nam-ah (The friend of all) 2) Om Ravaye nam-ah (Praised by all) 3) Om Suryaya nam-ah (The guide of all) 4) Om Bhanave nam-ah (The bestower of beauty) 5) Om Khagaya nam-ah (Stimulator of the senses) 6) Om Pushne nam-ah (The nourisher of all) 7) Om Hiranyagarbhaya nam-ah (The creator) 8) Om Marichaye nam-ah (Destroyer of disease) 9) Om Adityaya nam-ah (The inspirer) 10) Om Savitre nam-ah (The purifier) 11) Om Arkaya nam-ah (The radiant) 12) Om Bhaskaraya nam-ah (The illuminator) Pose 1 (and 12): Promotes balance, stimulates the respiratory system, exercises shoulder, back and neck muscles Pose 2 (and 11): Promotes balance, promotes digestion, exercises arms and shoulder muscles, tones the spine, promotes flexibility in back and hips Pose 3 (and 10): Promotes blood circulation, tones abdominal tracts, stretches back and leg muscles, stimulates spinal nerves, stimulates lymphatic system Pose 4 (and 9): Exercises spine, strengthens hand and wrist muscles Pose 5 (and 8): Stimulates blood circulation, strengthens the heart, strengthens wrist and arm muscles, relieves neck and shoulder tension Pose 6: Strengthens leg and arm muscles, increases flexibility in neck and shoulders, stretches arms, shoulder, neck and back muscles, exercises back muscles, releases tension in neck and shoulder Pose 7: Stimulates circulation to abdominal organs, tones digestive tract, stretches upper and lower body, promotes flexibility in the back, stimulates nerves in spine Poses 8 through 12 are essentially repetitions of poses 5 through 1, respectively. The health benefits of each are similar to their corresponding poses. During the second set, start off with the other leg. Proforma: Posture / Asana / Chakra / Seed First Posture – Namaskarasana/ Anahata/ OM hram Second Posture – Parvatasana/ Vishuddhi/ OM hrim Third Posture – Namaskara Hastapadasana/ Swadhistana/ OM hram Fourth Posture – Ekapada Prasaranasana/ Ajna/ OM hraim Fifth Posture – Bhudharasana/ Vishhuddi/ OM hraum Sixth Posture – Ashthanga Pranipatasana/ Manipura/ OM hrah Seventh Position – Bhujangasana/ Swadhistana/ OM hram Eighth Posture – Bhudharasana/ Vishuddhi/ OM hrim Ninth Posture – Ekapada Prasaranasana/ Ajna/ OM hrum Tenth Posture – Namaskara Hastapadasana/ Swadhistana/ OM hraim Eleventh Posture – Parvatasana/ Vishuddhi/ OM hraum Twelfth Posture – Namaskarasana/ Anahata/ OM hrah Suryanamaskar is a chiropractic exercise, which keeps your spine flexible and aligned. This keeps you organic chemical medicine factory controlled by your brain in good cheer, without releasing those harmful anti-pain chemicals, which has side effects --caused by lower back pain , sciatica etc. Chakras are focal points where psychic forces and bodily functions interact with each other. They are transceivers of SCALAR energy. Scalar waves operate in a non-linear time dimension which is hyperspace, at any speed from zero to infinity, as they are not limited to the speed of light. When you develop cosmic consciousness, the chakras vortex will extend further from his body. These chakras cannot be seen by the sight sense of the common man. Each of these 7 chakras are associated with a specific colour, organ, gland, mantra and frequency. Chakras can send out information carrying soliton waves, which do not attenuate. The Indian sage has exploded into a space of consciousness in which inner awareness is spontaneous. Cosmic consciousness is an intellectual enlightenment or illumination, an indescribable state of moral and intellectual elevation, a feeling of amazing bliss. Gazing at the sun or stars is an enlightening practice that fills up the soul. The real nervous system operates by means of synaptic messages. The virtual one operates by means of the quantum effect of tunneling (particles passing through an energy barrier that classically they should not be able to climb). The real one is driven by classical laws, the virtual one by quantum laws. Consciousness is therefore driven by quantum laws. Remember, chakras dictate all physical, mental, emotional and spiritual processes that take place in your body. Every chakra is a transmitter cum receiver antenna. As per Vedanta we are essentially holographic energy beings existing in a state of resonance with the scalar field of the cosmos Pineal gland is literally the third eye. The great Himalayan masters did Surya yog by gazing at the rising sun with a silver coin placed in between the eyebrows on the forehead . The solar wind at dawn, charging the earth’s magnetic field, stimulates the pineal gland. This is the best time to meditate , chant and sun gaze. At dawn, the negatively charged pineal and the positively charged pituitary combine their essences to create a "light in the head". Pranayama floods the Pineal gland with oxygen, to make it resonate. The reddish grey pineal gland is located in the geometric center of the brain. The nerves that serve the pineal gland don't originate in the brain but in the sympathetic nervous system. This gland can be activated by activated by sunlight, and also by sound resonance. It controls the various biorhythms of the body. It can discern negative energies, based on perception of vibrating energies around you. When the pineal gland does not receive sunlight, it secretes Melatonin, which induces sleep, increases blood sugar, craze for food, leading to obesity, fears and anxiety.The pineal gland is a photosensitive organ and thus an important timekeeper for the human body. The pineal gland produces PINOLINE, ( 6-methoxy-tetra-dydro-beta carboline, or 6-MeO-THBC ) . Pinoline also resonates with the very pulse of life 7.83 Hertz, the pulse the DNA uses to replicate, and which has been measured to be emitted from the brains and hands of all successful healers, regardless of belief or faith. Pinoline enables the threshold levels of DMT to become active in the brain . DMT with Pinoline increases brain activation multi fold. Pineal activation awakens normally latent neural pathways. Nerve fibers leave the pineal and make synaptic connections with other brain sites through traditional nerve-to-nerve connections, not just through endocrine secretions. EASTERN VEDIC RISHIS MYSTICS HAD THE ABILITY TO GO ON EITHER SIDE OF THE NARROW BAND OF 5 HUMAN SENSES, WITH A KING SIZED RESONATING PINEAL GLAND. THEY COULD TRANSCEND THE SENSES AND LIMITATION OF SPACE-TIME. There is a lot we knew 10000 years ago , but has been lost to this this 21st century-- right? You cant observe the quantum world without your Pineal gland -- the other 5 senses have too narrow bandwidths. Quantum physics has showed the ancient Indian Yogis were NOT mere dreamers of cosmic consciousness, where our bodies, our brain and its mind, as inextricably joined with other matter and the mega dipole of universe . There is indeed a connection between consciousness and tangled state quantum phenomena. They firmly believed that the invisible below the quantum screen gives rise to the visible. While Newton tries to explain the invisible through the visible. There is no room for consciousness or morphogenetic fields in the dictionary of Darwin. A mantra is a word or a series of words , which produce longitudinal Scalar waves by resonating your Pineal gland and your DNA—in a divine language. A divine language like Sanskrit came out from a 12 strand DNA – the most complicated supercomputer on this planet. The king Mantra OM or AUM is 11000 years old—and was told by the sages that it was the original sound when the Cosmos was created. OM opens up quantum tunneling for the wormholes to happen , where the speed of light is NOT the limiting factor. DNA is a superconductor that stores light at body temperature, and can create magnetic wormholes in ZPF .. Microtubules and axional membranes are also hollow cylinders. Mantras are Scalar energy based sounds which resonate in the Zero Point Field Aakashik hyperspace. ---Mantras resonate your pineal gland and reprogramme your DNA. The human DNA can produce longitudinal scalar waves. Mantras vibrations on DNA , chakras and pineal gland purifies and raises human consciousness. Mantras centres your mind ( effect on subconscious ) and slows down your breathing. Mantras increase your Auras as seen by Kirlean photography— due to the effect on symphathetic and para sympathetic nervous systems.---Mantra chanting must be done with intent, to make it more powerful. This is about consciousness again. Pranayama— where you exhale twice as long as inhale— IS MORE ABOUT DUMPING OLD EXPERIENCES, RATHER THAN MERE OXYGENATION OF BLOOD. Breathe in the new , breathe out the old. Pranayama—inhale and exhale with awareness— long exhales with the sound of mmmm. Humming boosts level of nitric oxide—this in turn ups the oxygen intake by 98%, the biggest secret . Ordinary breath is a mere 4%. 70% of toxins in your body are released by exhalation— rest by sweat, defecation and urine— surprised? The main purpose of respiration is to provide oxygen to the cells at a rate adequate to satisfy their metabolic needs. This involves transport of oxygen from the lung to the tissues by means of the circulation of blood. The power of breathing lies in its relationship with your energy source. The mind is intimately connected to your breathing. Deep breathing triggers the lymph, your body’s sewage system which will give your cells more efficiency. It keeps the blood fully oxygenated. The physical aspect of lack of oxygen in the body is not as important as the mental and spiritual aspect. Lack of oxygen always slows your reaction time. The more oxygen our brains receive the better they function. Stress, fear and anxiety causes muscles to contract and blood vessels to constrict. When blood cannot be transported freely through the body to provide oxygen, and antibodies and to carry away and dispose toxic wastes, illness sets in. Mind is non material , but it works in partnership with communicator molecules. With every thought mind moves atoms of hydrogen, carbon , oxygen and other particles in the brain . Knowing the connection between breath and consciousness, the ancient yogis devised PRANAYAMA to stabilise energy and consciousness. Anxiety vanishes entirely when you are one with the rest of the universe. When your mind is disturbed the fundamental energy Prana leaks . Pranayama just reverses the process. People who do Pranayama regularly have quieter nerves , less lethargy , better sleep and lower BP. It prevents accumulation of Uric acid which gives joint pains. Fluctuations of mind are controlled and hence Pranayama prepares you for meditation. Back to Surya namaskar-- Sage Agastya had taught Surya namaskar to Lord Rama just before his fight with Ravana in 4300BC. Basically you are greeting a new day with a grateful heart. It is done in open air. The benefits are:-- 1) You raise your consciousness 2) Develop inner peace 3) Rekindle your drooping spirit 4) Detoxification of body and mind 5) Your face glows --balance of mind, body and spirit. 6) Mental clarity and concentration 7) Raise your immunity 8) Reduces biological age. 9) Centring yourself and stoking your inner flame 10) Gratitude and communion with self 11) Awakening at cellular level, improves metabolism, burns fat 12) Expansion of perception 13) Physical exercise , stretching, flexing of spine. Removes stiffness of joints and ligaments. 14) Destress. 15) Good sleep at night. 16) Miraculous delivery from disease -physical and mental. 17) Your skin is cleansed by sunlight and you have less BO. Clears eyesight too. 18) Improves body posture.19) Drives away phobias.
QUANTUM MEDICINE TULSI -- BASIL - NATURAL NEGATIVE ION GENERATOR CUM OZONIZER — THE ELIXIR OF LIFE
A couple of years ago, I was sitting in my lawn at dusk , next to the running waterfall, which had a mini tulsi tapovan at the brink. I had put on the garden light at the waterfall.
One of my friends popped in and asked me what I was doing.
I said ” I am taking in my daily quota of negative ions and ozone !”.
He laughed it off— but I could NOT have been more serious.
Now I must explain in greater detail about my natural negative ion generator ( water fall ) and ozone generator ( mini tulsi grotto ) .
Any waterfall generates negative ions. All viruses have a positive dipole charge. Negative ions attached itself to it and enlarges the virus. Viruses are so tiny that our lungs cant pull them out, unless they are enlarged.
Negative ions create an alkaline environment. Cancer cells survive only in an acidic environment, which is an oxygen impoverished environment.
Ozone kills virus and bacteria.
Free radicals are positive ions in your body, which shuts down your immune system and causes cells to become weak. This makes you fall sick faster and age faster.
When positive ions permeate into your skin, your sweat pores contract. Negative ions cause the pores to expand and increase metabolism.
85% negative ions are absorbed by the skin and the balance via the lungs. Negative ions in the blood stream activates delivery of oxygen to cells and tissues. Negative charged environment stimulates the body’s self healing mechanism.
Ionising a room drives away the dust , viruses and bacteria, as bacteria thrives on dust. This is the reason why the best hospitals of this planet have negative ion generators in the post operation rooms . You can buy this in the market too for your home. Negative ions do NOT have any adverse side effects.
Even modern poultry farms have negative ion generators. Almost all major soccer clubs have negative ionisers in the change rooms.
Basically these machines use high voltage to ionize or electrically charge air molecules—they have an extra electron, to donate to electron wrenching free radicals.
Waterfalls and flowing living water streams produce negative ions. All Vedic rishis sat near clear fast flowing brooks and waterfalls, to improve their concentration.
Negative ions lower the blood pressure. It reduces allergy causes asthma.
Overproduction of Serotonin in the brain , causing blood vessels leading to the brain to dilate , stretching pain receptors -- causes migraines.
Remember , people having migraines must not allow the blankets to touch the body while sleeping. Keep a cotton sheet in between the blanket and your body.
Any form of combustion increases positive ions.
Inhaling negative ions regulates the production of Serotonin in your brain. It controls depression and is a better way that the use of medicines like Prozac which have side effects. Serotonin causes mental fatigue.
Negative ionisers help you to sleep better. Negative ions accelerate the oxidative degradation of Serotonin. Positive ions on the other hand sabotage the enzymes which breakdown serotonin.
Increased Serotonin causes increased sensitivity to pain and hence heightened aggression , hence higher BP, and bronchiospasm (asthma ), and reduction of pH.
Ionisers should NOT be confused with ozone generators. Like how a waterfall cannot be confused with a Tulsi ( Basil ) plant.
Negative ion is an oxygen atom with an extra electron. Negative ions cannot pass through walls. Ionisers use electrostatically charges plates to produce negative ions, on which positively charges dust and bacteria gets stuck.
They aggregate and clump together to get heavy to remain airborne and fall down. Ozone generators use UV lights or high voltage electric charge to attract an extra oxygen ion to an oxygen molecule.
Ozone is a molecule with 3 oxygen atoms. Ozone oxidises airborne pollutants , where one oxygen atom splits off, and then reverts back to oxygen leaving behind cleansed air.
Negative ions and ozone are nature’s most powerful air cleansers. There is nothing on this planet more effective than a negative ion generator and ozoniser to cleanse the air we breathe, by removing allergens and contaminants.
On ships we have ozoniser in vegetable rooms fridges. This helps fresh fruits and veggies to stay fresh longer, as ozone controls surface mould and decay.. Ozone is one of the most powerful oxidants and germicides known.
The single oxygen atom just burns up the particle and self destructs too, thus leaving behind pure oxygen. Wonderful, right?
In swimming pools ( algae ) and homes water ( odour , germs ) is purified by ozone. Most of the modern morgues have an ozonizer. Almost all modern hospital operation theaters have ozonisers, as ozone prevents gangrene. Ozone is used to treat industrial liquid waste.
For human beings make sure the ozone concentration does NOT exceed 0.15 ppm. At this stage you can smell ozone. So far no human deaths have been attributed to ozone. Ozone cannot improve your mood like negative ions. Negative ions in the blood stream accelerate the delivery of oxygen to the cells.
Negative ions promote alpha waves in your brain. Do NOT use vapourisers or moisturisers with negative ion generators-as that will create positive ions.
Enough of science—now I must get back to quantum plant Tulsi. The chemistry of Tulsi is highly complex as it contains hundreds of beneficial compounds known as phyto-chemicals .
Tulsi gives off Ozone at night with a suitable lamp providing light for photosynthesis. All other plants on this planet give off carbon di oxide at night.
In Vrindavan , Lord Krishna used to frolic with the milkmaids in a Tulasi forest , where the Tulsi trees were twelve feet high! People have tried to play peeping toms and the effect of the ozone made them mad by daybreak..
Tulsi is a sacred plant , known as the Mother of Ayurveda. The remarkable thing about Tulsi is that, unlike other medicinal plants, she is effective even if she is not consumed. Just her close proximity is enough.Tulsi plant was the result of Samudra Manthan or churning of the oceans.
The King's chamber of the Great pyramid is a representation of etherical abode of Lord Shiva , the Mount Meru of Vedic Hindu Mythology. Mount Meru extends from earth into space to a height of 85 times earth's diameter. Lord Shiva is the destroyer god of the Trinity of Tamas Rajas Satwa ( yin-yang ) or creator/ preserver/ destroyer, represented by Shiva's trident. Meru was used to churn the oceans , Sagar Manthan for divine nectar.
Most of the traditional Hindu homes , away from concrete jungle cities, have Tulsi plant, right in front of the door. In cities they keep it indoors in a little pot. No self respecting Hindu household is considered complete without the Tulsi plant, this is because the presence of a Tulsi plant in a home signifies the presence of Goddess Lakshmi herself .
Every morning the lady of the house waters it and offers her respects to the basil plant. In the evenings people light a lamp and place it by the plant or in the pot. Hindu women do NO even step on the shadow of Tulsi, as a sign of respect.
For it is a representation of goddess Lakshmi, the goddess of prosperity. Every year, Hindus celebrate the onset of the wedding season after the Diwali festival by performing the marriage ceremony of the Tulsi plant with an idol of lord Krishna, an avatar of lord Vishnu
The story of Lord Krishna has it that when Krishna was weighed in gold, not even all the ornaments of Satyabhama could outweigh him. But a single Tulsi leaf placed by Rukmini on the pan tilted the scale.
Tulsi is one of the eight indispensable things in Vedic worship.
When leaves are plucked , the following Sanskrit mantra is chanted –
yad hrdi tava vartate
tat ksamasva jagan-matah
vrnda devi namo’ stu te
“O Tulasi devi, I offer my respectful obeisances unto you. Kindly forgive me if I have caused you pain by picking your leaves and manjaris, O mother of the universe.”
sada tvam kesava-priya
kesavartham cinomi tvam
varada bhava sobhane
“O Tulasi devi, your birth is from nectar, and you are always dear to Lord Kesava. It is for Lord Kesava that I collect your leaves. O beautiful Tulasi, please grant us this boon to serve the Lord.”
There are two types of Tulasi. One is called Krishna Tulasi because it is said to be the same colour as Sri Krishna – purple.
The other is called Rama Tulasi and is light green in colour. Krishna Tulasi is the more powerful of the two.
The Devi Bhagavata Purana regards Tulsi as an manifestation of Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and wife of Lord Vishnu.
The white invader made up a COCK AND BULL story to denigrate Hindusim. Lord Vishnu rapes Vrinda and her husband Jalandhara dies. Vrinda cursed Vishnu to become a stone, turning him the Shaligram stone. Vrinda immolated herself in her husband's funeral pyre as per horrible Hindu custom Sati.. But Vishnu ensured that she got incarnated in the form of tulsi plant on the earth—so that he can sexually assault her again and again ..
Nobody heard of Sati, till the white invader came to India. Every where on Wikipedia they are equating Lord Vishnu with Vithoba – a creation of the white invader ..
The shila deities and the tulasi plant are thus always worshipped together as Vishnu and Lakshmi.
Tulsi Leaf is not offered to Shiva, just as Bel Leaves, dear to Shiva, are not offered to Vishnu. Tulsi leaves are also not offered to Goddess Lakshmi as she was once annoyed during her lovesport with Vishnu, when his attention got diverted towards Tulsi.
Saligram is a black ammonite stone, with the imprint of a golden ratio marine cephalopod fossil. It is found only in the Gandaki River of Nepal . Saligram is not worshipped in houses because it is said ir raises tension and anxiety.
Tulsi has been used since 9000 BC by the Vedic Maharishis. It is mentioned in the Charaka Samhita, an ancient Ayurvedic text, written in 5000 BC in Sankrit. Tulsi is an adaptogen balancing different processes in the body, and helpful for adapting to stress.
Marked by its strong aroma and astringent taste, it is regarded in Ayurveda as a kind of "elixir of life" and promotes longevity.
TULSI LEAVES ARE MOST EFFECTIVE WITHIN 5 MINUTES OF BEING PLUCKED.
If you plant Tulasi plants in your garden the air will be pure within a wide radius, and bacteria-free. Tulasi plant is extremely sensitive and aware, and quickly able to register the vibrations around her.
Living Tulsi leaves contain a natural ether, which drives away mosquitoes . The British loved to plant it in their lawns calling it “Mosquito Plant”.
Tulsi is venerated as a goddess in Hinduism and considered a wife of god Vishnu. It is a small plant, with about 5 cm long leaves, it gains a maximum height of 1 metre. Its leaves having a peculiar smell, have small hair on their upper and lower surfaces.
Traditionally, in temples the priests keep water and Tulasi leaves in a copper pot and offer three small spoonfuls as prasadam to devotees, who drink part of it and dribble the remainder on their heads.
Susruta Samhita, Padampurana and Garudpurana, after centuries of observation in humans, describes Tulsi as a ‘child giver' and great spermatogenic agent. They report Tulsi as a fertility Improver and enhance the chances of woman bearing progeny.
Tulsi is the pillar of the traditional Ayurvedic holistic health system . , Tulsi also alkalizes the body . It increases the body's efficient use of oxygen, boosts the immune system, slows down aging and provides a rich supply of anti-oxidants and other nutrients.
Tulsi protects you from solar Radiation . In the event of a nuclear holocaust, Tulsi will be the only savior.
Tulsi boosts the body's ability to fight off damaging free radicals, which have been linked to disease and aging.
It is an adaptogen that helps the body fight the effects of ongoing stress and also balances the mind, nerves and emotions

Steaming the face with tulsi leaves flushed out the toxins and leaves the face glowing. It is good for acne prone skin. It is an anti-wrinkle agent. Tulsi is also a skin rasayana. With vitamin C, carotene, calcium and phosphorus, Tulsi helps skin stay healthy and supple
The leaf ( Ocimum tenuiflorum ) contains mercury, and is an antibiotic or antibacterial.. Hormonal imbalance is regulated in both men and women by the consumption of Tulasi.
Tulsi both aids in digestion, increasing digestive fire and the secretion of digestive enzymes. It heals disorders of the digestive tract such as ulcers and internal lesions. Tulsi stimulates appetite. Tulsi helps to break up kidney stones.
Being an antimicrobial agent , it heals the urinary tract infection. It eliminates problems such as urine acidity, passing blood or pus in the urine. For men, Tulsi strengthens prostate health and increases sperm count. Fresh Tulsi juice helps in strengthening the immune system of the body.
Tulsi is an cough expectorant and a cure for malaria and other dis-eases, especially cold-induced ones like coughs, bronchitis, pneumonia, etc. Taking a few leaves mixed with a teaspoonful of ginger juice and honey immediately controls bouts of dry cough and removes any bronchial spasm .
The seeds can be used as a diuretic. It reduces uric acid level. It is good for your liver.
Tulsi can inactivate viruses, bacteria, and cancer cells, scavenge free radicals in the body, stimulate the immune system, and prevent degenerative diseases.
Healthy cells have certain enzymes that protect them from being oxidized. Unhealthy cancer cells don’t have these enzymes to protect them from being oxidized and can be killed by ozone
The juice of tulsi leaves is used to bring down fever. In acute fever, a decoction of tulsi leaves boiled with powdered cardamom, sugar and milk can lower and control the temperature.
It can be cure sore throat. Chewing 12 leaves twice a day reduces stress. It eliminates bad breath and infections of the mouth. It is used for the treatment of ringworm and leucoderma. Tulsi paste is applied on the forehead to relieve headache.
Tulsi juice has been traditionally used for night blindness. It is used as a deworming agent .Consuming one spoon each of basil and ginger juice helps in cramps and stomachache.
Juice of basil leaves and honey taken regularly for six months can be useful in expelling renal stones. The extracts of Tulsi leaf helps in inhibiting the enzyme of filarial worm and is anti-tubercular. Tulasi leaves can also be crushed or ground into a paste and applied externally to wounds
Tulsi is taken in many forms: as herbal tea, dried powder, fresh leaf, or mixed with ghee. Essential oil extracted from Karpoora Tulsi is mostly used for medicinal purposes and in herbal toiletry.
For centuries, the dried leaves of Tulsi have been mixed with stored grains to repel insects. A decoction of 10 to 20 leaves taken along with a pinch of rock salt abates digestive problems like flatulence and anorexia
Tulsi OIL has antibacterial , insecticidal properties, antioxidant, anti inflammatory, anti cancer, antiviral, anti allergic, anti mutagenic and antimicrobial properties. The oil prevents inflammation of mucous membrane especially in the respiratory tract, produces perspiration, can cure ear aches, and is a good immuno-modulatory agent.
When massaged on feet in reflexology, it helps relieve body-ache, fatigue and promotes good sleep
Recognizing the anti-pollutant, anti-oxidation and air-purifying properties of tulsi, the Indian government has recently launched a Tulsi plantation drive around Taj Mahal and other world heritage monuments as an eco-protection measure to contain the ravages of chemical pollution caused by nearby industrial units.
Jesus Christ was in Kerala for 3 years before he went with Mary Magdalene to the pyramids . He then suddenly burst upon the scene at Jesusalem. Mary Magdalene had taken a potted Tulsi plant at the spot of his crucification. The Jews love to say that the basil plant grew on the spot by itself.
Yanmoole sarva tirthaani yannagre sarva devataa
Yanmadhye sarva vedaascha Tulasi taam namaamyaham.
Yanmadhye sarva vedaascha Tulasi taam namaamyaham.
I bow down to the Tulasi, at whose base (the roots) are all the holy places, at whose top reside all the deities (divinity), and in whose middle are all the Vedas.
Water mixed with tulsi petals is given to the dying to raise their departing souls to heaven.
