An Evening with an Ayurvedic Master✨
Rhythms and Cycles in Nature - Exploring the Innate Stages of Life
Natures intelligence is constantly prevailing our life.
The elements rotate in dominating segments of the day. Each season uniquely effects our body. Elemental influences govern the different generational age groups in life.
How in tune are we with our own nature to progress in life with minimal friction?
How do we prepare our body for healthy adulthood, reproduction, smooth menopause and comfortable “elder years”?
Join Ayurvedic master Vaidya Krishna Raju as he is interviewed by Matt Ringrose of @bondimeditation to dissect the elegant sequence of life.
Vaidya Raju will share how to access and utilise the power of these crucial life-transitioning periods with simple, accessible and powerful actions for you to live a rewarding and vital life.
Join us this Friday night in Sydney for an intimate evening of knowledge and Ayurvedic chai.

✨Pulse Diagnosis / Nadi Vigyan✨
A highly complex science and a healing art. So complex you may be blown away what a good Vaidya (Ayurvedic physician) can feel through your radial pulse.
This most refined, accurate and comprehensive diagnostic tool is employed to detect where any imbalance exists and its root cause.
The Vaidya (Ayurvedic physician) assesses the state of your heart, mind and senses and how coordinated they are with one another. Plus MUCH more is revealed to the Vaidya during this intimately communicative method.
This is valuable for those who desire a deeper insight into what is going on in their body and mind. 
Pulse diagnosis can reveal the underlying cause of disease for those with niggling health issues or that are poorly responding to treatments.
It may also detect imbalances before they manifest into disease, acting as a vital tool for prevention and maintenance of optimum health and vitality.
Accordingly, Vaidya Raju will recommend an appropriate diet, lifestyle and herbal program.
AUSTRALIA! You have an opportunity to get a pulse consultation with an expert and master in this field, Dr. Vaidya Krishna Raju, visiting Australia this month. He is also offering female purification treatments and knowledge seminars.

🌿Stinging Nettle Therapy...A Good Kind of Sting🌿

Urtication, or Sting Nettle Therapy could be the oldest form of acupuncture. Cultures all over the world have used the fine needles on the leaf to stimulate painful, paralysed, cold, inflamed or numb tissue.
This is effective to treat chronic and painful "vata" conditions involving muscle and nerve tissue that are problematic or responding poorly. The stimulating sting can treat chronic pains that even cortisone shots do not help, including fibromyalgia, as well as chronic auto-immune conditions such as Rheumatoid Arthritis ("AmaVat" - where a thick fluid known as "Ama" blocks the movement (vata) of synovial fluid in joint channels).
The leaves contain very small needles that act like hypodermic syringes to inject a cocktail of anti-inflammatory and pain relieving compounds. These needles inject the neuro-transmitters acetylcholine and serotonin (analgesic) and histamine (anti-inflammatory).
With a sting sometimes lasting up to 24 hours, the injection will stimulate the acupuncture (or marma) point for a much longer period of time, thus enhance the therapeutic effect. Think of it as super acupuncture.
Internal administration is also effective to purify and clear the urinary tract, reduce excessive Pitta 🔥, skin ailments and chronic muscle and nerve ailments like fibromyalgia.
🌿 How to Use Stinging Nettle 🌿
🍵Tea - Boil a generous bunch of fresh leaves in 2L of water and reduce to 1L to make a thick dark green tea.
🍃Use the leafs like a leafy green vegetable. Lightly cook.
(The needles will die of shortly after steeping in hot water).
You can find Nettle at your local farmers market or growing as a weed in fields or rainforest.
Thanks to Jimi Wollumbin for bringing this to my attention and transforming my fear of being stung in the bush into a hedonistic walk with natures spikes.

🌿 Get Familiar With Your Local Berries🌿
One of my favourite local Aussie bush tucker is Kakamachi / (Solanum Nigrum / Blackberry Nightshade).
Check out this potent dark purple - packing powerful a punch of anti-oxidant activity. It is a group of phyto-chemicals, known as anthocyanins, which are responsible for the dark blue/purple colour in many berries and stone fruits including your more well known commercial fruits like blueberries, plums, blackberries, dark cherrys, dark grapes, prunes etc.
This common compound found in these dark coloured fruits, particularly blueberries, helps prevent nerve cells in the brain from deteriorating. Berries like this are finally becoming recognised as super foods today.
Now for my beloved berry...
KAKAMACHI (pictured). Likely to be growing as a weed on a grass patch near you in Australia. One of the many Ayurvedic herbs that are native to Australia.🇦🇺
This straggly bush can be identified as its berries grow in small clusters, rather than growing individually (this is the “deadly nightshade”).
Leaves can be used as a leafy green vegetable (fry in ghee to purify).
Ripe (dark purple) berries are mildly acidic very tasty bush tucker. Unripe (green) berries are unwholesome. 🌿
❤Whole plant is great for the liver and skin even though it has a heating potency (usna virya). (Must purify and prepare properly).
😤Seeds are good for lungs. (Must purify and prepare properly).
🌬Good for voice (singers eat those ripe tucker berries), and essential for kapha disorders.
💞Aphrodisiac and rejuvenator.
🤗Causes easy movement of faeces and other waste products.
Caution: Only use FRESH. - “[Kakamachi] when used fresh is a rejuvenator but used after some days it is poison.” ~ Astanga Samgraha of Vaghbata, (ch. 7, 243)
For those in Sydney who want me to show you how where this food as medicine grows and how do identify it. Contact me and I would be delighted. 🌿

Sanskrit Synonyms of Heart ❤️:
💖Mahat - "great." Expressing the overall biological importance of the heart. The whole body and mind owes its existence to the heart.
💓Artha - "essence" or "purpose" - the heart is the organ par excellence. The substratum of body functions and ojas (vital essence).
💗Hrdaya - the sound of a heart beating. "Hir-dya. Hir-dya." One of my favourite sanskrit words because it is a quintessential example that the whole sanskrit language is onomatopoeia.
❣️Mahamula - the “great root.” - The heart is the foundational root for the 10 great vessels of biological importance (limbs, trunk, head, organs, consciousness, sense faculties, objects of senses, soul and mind). ❤️

The Best Factors to Be Adopted for Quality of Life
I love when Ayurveda blatantly reveals teachings in a stern manner, leaving minimal to no room for contenders. Particularly teaching what is the single best thing to promote a particular something.
Below are the foremost factors to promote 6 essential qualities of life:
1. Longevity of human beings - Non violence (Ahimsa).
Of-course. Don't indulge in violence and you will live longer. Further, adopting a pacifying behaviour will promote longevity. Food would be the second factor.
2. Strength - Semen.
This means promoting and maintaining optimum levels of "Ojas" (vitality) which is the physical expression of consciousness, partially in the form of semen in men and reproductive fluid in woman. Building Ojas is an art. Perhaps one of the best ways to consistently build Ojas is to meditate, give and receive unconditional love, eat a diet of fresh unprocessed, seasonal whole foods and have a balanced digestion to support the process.
3. Nourishment - Knowledge.
Provides nourishment to both the body and mind, thus it is a superior factor to the most nourishing food, meat. Meat would be the second most effective factor for nourishment.
4. Delightfulness - Self-control.
Knowing how to look after your body and interact with the outside world in a delightful and radiant manner.
5. Happiness - Understanding the truth.
If you understand and know the truth of your Being, how can you ever be unhappy? When you have the ability to trust that the entire flow of everything is towards evolution, nothing can either make or break you. Constant joy.
6. Salvation - abstinence (brahmacharya).
No rigid attachment to sensual pleasure. Celibacy in your mind, not necessarily physical. Sexual mastery.
According to the scholars of Ayurveda, Caraka Samhita (sutra sthana ch. 30, 15)
Wait for it...
Now, for a couple of interesting facts about peacocks...
Peacock meat is not very good for health generally, but it is medicine to promote eyesight, the power of hearing and helps the voice.
But beware... ⚠️"meat of peacock roasted on a castor spit, if burnt with castor wood as the fuel and mixed with castor oil causes instantaneous death." (Caraka S.)
(I just thought I would mention it for your survival repertoire).
However! Fear not vegetarians, vegans and those who dare not to indulge in this source of meat. There are many effective plant based herbs and foods to enhance sensory health and longevity.
For more interesting facts on peacocks, and how they have the ability to neutralise poison, see approx. 55 posts back on Jan 12.
And yes, an Indian sent me this video on what's app (and probably another 108 people).
