The utility value and benefits of various forest medicinal herbs offered in Yajna fire has been described. How various diseases can be healed using specific forest medicinal herbs and how they increase our good health has been listed. In the present research study some forest herbs well known for their superb healing prowess have been chosen that are used in varied ways in Ayurveda and Allopath mode of therapy. Vaidyas or Ayurveda doctors use them as Kwath (apozem and decoction) and Avaleh (semi liquid medicine that can be licked or tincture). Even in Allopath mode of therapy these very herbs are used to make various pills,Guest Posting tonics etc. Even in the therapies called Dishen and where only one medicine is administered to the patient the above herbs have proved to be very useful. In Yajna therapy by rendering these medicinal herbs gas in nature due to burning in Yajna fire, the chief aim is to render them so very subtle that all distortions/ailments faced by individuals, our environment and plants are uprooted successfully. Till today modern day chemists have been able to conduct chemical analysis on certain forest herbs. Merely on the basis of description of the usefulness and potency of these herbs given in text books cannot be accepted by a rational and discriminative intellect especially in this advanced modern science era. Hence in our Brahmavarchas Research Institute (Address: Shantikunj-Haridwar-India) we have made arrangements to chemically analyze all such herbs in the modern scientific research study context. Thus we shall truly understand the chemical designing and chemical effect along with the utility of the leaves, roots, flower, fruit etc of all these medicinal herbs known to cure various diseases.
The basis of medicines used for specific diseases as Havishya offered to Yajna fire is very much akin to therapies administered right since ancient times by doctors based on the medicine’s chemical designing. Due to the union of various chemicals various chemical reactions set in and thus varied results emerge. Useful herbs and plants are chosen for curing various diseases based on their chemical specialties. Such arrangements have also been made so as to measure what effect is seen when the same medicine is administered to the patient via the mouth (oral), nose (breathing) and direct injection into the patient’s blood stream. Via the comparative study of effects noted which path (mouth etc) from the healing standpoint is supremely successful is decided. In the preliminary phase those medicinal herbs chosen are Tulsi (basil), Sarpagandha, Brahmi, Shankhpushpi, Shatavari, Somavalli, Jatamasi, Ashtavarg etc.
In a certain sense Samidha or wood used to light Yajna fire can be called Havishya (materials offered to the fire). When some special variety of wood burns in more or less measure it produces healing effects very much similar to forest herbs offered in Yajna fire. It is hence that in Havishya along with the leaves, flowers, fruits etc of trees and plants wood of various types is included. In the Yajna materials or Havishya powdered wood of trees like sandalwood, deodar, agar, tagar etc is also mixed. It has been advised by our scriptures to use wood of only certain types of trees as Samidha to light the Yajna fire. We just cannot take wood from any tree as per our whims and fancies to light Yajna fire. If you insist on doing so Yajna fire lit from such tainted wood shall produce dangerous side effects that harm our physical-mental health. While choosing Samidha to light Yajna fire focus is placed on the fact that from the standpoint of the bio chemical designing of the patient’s body which type of Samidha is best suited to heal him. Apart from Samidha of trees mentioned above other tree wood used are mango, Shami (thorny shrub), Guler (wild fig or Ficus glomerata), Pipal (fig tree or Ficus religiosa), Devdaru (pine, cheddar,fir), Ashok (Jonesia asoka), Bilva (wood apple tree (Aegle marmelos), Chitrak (type of gentian or Gentiana cherayta) etc.
Via Havishya (forest medicinal herbs-Panchang-Samidha or wood) what chemical changes are noted in the body is tested and gauged via various scientific apparatus set up in the Brahmavarchas Research Institute (Address: Shantikunj-Haridwar-India). Via the ECG or Electro Cardiogram the effect of medicinal herbs on the heart are measured. In what manner various herbs after entering the blood stream create effects on the various parts of the heart’s blood circulatory system. This is measured via the Cardioscope and ECG’s Autorecorder which gives us details about the bio electricity dwelling in the heart.
The ratio of gases present in the blood of healthy individuals and diseased patients is different. Oxygen is called the very life force of tissues and cells of the human body’s various organs. Carbon dioxide gas is emitted via the reaction of the metabolic activities taking place in these organs. Tainted materials in the form of carbon dioxide gas are evicted via exhaling. Whenever in the smooth functioning of this gigantic building called the human body experiences undesirable obstructions, carbon dioxide gas gathers in the body in dire amounts. The augmenting of acidity in our blood stream gives us a hint of this imbalance. Doctors by analyzing gases in the blood find out the measure of acidity in the blood. Thus they conclude whether the bodily functioning is healthy or not. This very arrangement has been set up in our Brahmavarchas Research Institute (Address: Shantikunj-Haridwar-India) laboratories. After making use of medicines that purify the blood optimally acidity in blood is measured using Blood Gas Analyzer and Ph Meter.
The measurement of blood sugar, urea, cholesterol, creatinin and other enzymes and possible effects taking place after administering various types of medicines in executed in the Biochemistry Laboratory at the Brahmavarchas Research Institute (Address: Shantikunj-Haridwar-India). Via culture and microscopy methods set up in the Bacteriology Department, the basic form of these medicines and its capacity to kill disease causing agents/microbes in their fume and ash form on getting burnt in Yajna fire is scientifically gauged.
As has been mentioned Yajna Philosophy is based on subtility. There are many organs in the human body in the form of subtle nerve networks and glands. Amongst these hormones predominate. Its juice straight enters the blood stream hence they are called endocrine glands that have no tubes to transport these hormonal juices. The medicines offered to Yajna fire are rendered fume in nature and this is made to reach various organs of the body. Thus they showcase their influence on these various endocrine and other glands. Which forest medicinal herb shows what type of effect on these glands and hormones? In order to gauge this via radio immunology techniques the hormonal levels in blood and other materials are measured.
Due to the subtle nature of its energy in order to cure mental illnesses and in order to awaken other latent energies various forest medicinal herbs are offered to Yajna fire. Via the Polygraph technological apparatus by measuring the state of brain waves, the psyche is analyzed so as to measure various aspects of the inner personality and thus the above results accrued are analyzed. One benefit accrued by doing this is that we can find out what type of effect is noted on the various subtle functions of the body via the procedure of rendering forest medicinal herbs in a fume state by offering them to Yajna fire? All this can be marked via various channels.
On an average in Super Power Yajnas clarified butter/Ghee made from cow’s milk is used yet other animals’ milk too has its own special effect. On noting the state of the patient’s disease a correlation is established with the state of chemical content present in clarified butter/Ghee made from milk of various animals. Thus conclusions are drawn as to in which disease clarified butter/Ghee (offered to Yajna fire) made from milk of which animal is most suited to cure that disease successfully. It is a very ancient belief that by burning clarified butter/Ghee in fire the effect noted is much more powerful than directly eating it. The scientific basis of this observation must be tested via laboratory research studies. In order to find out why clarified butter/Ghee made from cow’s milk reigns supreme a comparative study with clarified butter/Ghee got from other animals’ milk must be executed using modern scientific research studies. Hence arrangements have been made at Brahmavarchas Research Institute (Address: Shantikunj-Haridwar-India) to chemically analyze various types of clarified butter/Ghee made from milk of different animals and measuring bio chemical changes taking place in the body when these are devoured orally or via fumes of Yajna fire when they are offered to it.
At Purnahuti (just before completion of the Yajna) instead of ordinary Yajna materials some special ones have to be made use of. This Purnahuti is partitioned as follows:
a) Swishtkrut Homa-In this sweet meats and sweetened food items are offered to Yajna fire.
b) Purnahuti-In this fruits are are offered to Yajna fire.
c) Basodhara-In this a ceaseless stream of clarified butter/Ghee is poured into Yajna fire.
By uniting all the above 3 actions it is called Purnahuti. This method is taken in a major manner in the form of nourishing applications. Materials for prevention in the form of Havishya are already offered previous to this in Yajna fire.
For Swishtkrut Homa the basis of choosing sweet meats and sweetened food items is very much a part of the Yajna methodology and procedure. Ordinarily for this sugar, refined sugar or Mishri and Mithai or sweet meats are used. In an extraordinary way special types of Charu are made. Khir (akin to sweet rice pudding), Halua, Laddu etc are generally offered to Yajna fire for Swishtkrut Homa purposes. With the admixture of what materials should these be cooked? This is decided by keeping in mind which nourishing and nutritious material is required for patients suffering with different types of diseases. Generally food grains used for Super Power Yajnas are rice, barley, wild rice paddy, sesame, wheat and gram. In the sugar category, sugar made from jaggery, refined sugar, honey, fruits and dry fruits are used as Yajna materials. By using all these, what nourishing effect is noted in the body is being studied via scientific research studies.
In Purnahuti ordinarily coconut, Supari or betal nut etc are used that are eaily available but yet sometimes in it dry fruits and ripe fruits too are utilized. Akin to deciding which type of Samidha wood is to be used to light the Yajna fire, in the choosing of fruits used in Purnahuti also, a lot of scientific analysis has to be done.
In Vasodhara an uninterrupted stream of stream of clarified butter/Ghee is poured into Yajna fire. It means that its measure is increased a lot. One reason for this is that wherever unburnt remnants of Havishya materials offered to Yajna fire are present in the Kund or pyre immediately starts burning on contacting this clarified butter/Ghee. The 2nd reason is, that the measure of this clarified butter/Ghee’s greasiness can be imbibed by the body which from the contemporary state standpoint is most required. By using sugar along with other food in Swishtkrut Homa, fruits in Purnahuti and various types of clarified butter/Ghee in Vasodhara, the balanced measure of our meals is decided in such a manner that the Yajna performer gets all round optimal nourishment and nutrition. In clarified butter/Ghee used in Vasodhara there is an injunction to mix camphor, saffron etc to it also. As a result the clarified butter/Ghee used instead of merely being relegated to grease becomes a special type of healing medicine.
In today’s modern scientific computer age it is most required that we prove via modern research techniques that food items and forest medical herbs used in Swishtkrut Homa, Purnahuti and Vasodhara are very beneficial like tonics to augment good health. Keeping this important fact in mind the Yajnopathy Laboratory in Brahmavarchas Research Institute (Address: Shantikunj-Haridwar-India) has been set up with latest scientific technology and equipment.
The technique of helping reach nourishment to our body via the above Yajna method not only is easy and straightforward but very effective from the mental-physical health benefit standpoint also. When our body becomes very weak our digestive system does not function properly. At that time via intravenous injections glucose is administered to the body. Thus the patient gets benefit of nourishment. Drinking milk no doubt has its own health benefit yet when in the form of heavy/undigestible protein group hormones are injected the benefits are much more in measure. In comparison to heating heaps of fruits if you drink its juice the tummy experiences much lesser burden. In a more or less manner the benefits are quite similar. The essence or extract of various nourishing nutritious materials are now being made by many chemical industries and its benefit is accrued even by a very ill person so as to render his life force or Prana energy optimally intact. Yajna therapists and healers opine that nourishment rendered more and more subtle via Yajna procedure is much easier to help reach every nook and corner of the body and digest it easily also.
As a result of this process medicines are rendered gaseous and vaporized and thus in the form of Yajna fire fumes spread out in all 4 directions. By entering the body of the Yajna performer via our mouth (inhaling) and skin pores they reach very deep subtle centers of the body and externally too it spreads its fumes in all 4 directions. By analyzing this via Orset and Lawrence Gas Analyzer a conclusion is drawn as to which gases are present in what measure and ratio. It is said that by burning wood fumes emerge that is merely an admixture of carbon dioxide or carbon monoxide. Thus the question asked is, are fumes emerging from the Yajna procedure different from other smoke? This is a very important topic for scientific research studies. In our Yajnopathy Laboratory in Brahmavarchas Research Institute (Address: Shantikunj-Haridwar-India) these fumes via special techniques are sampled so as to chemically analyze them.
In Agnihotra/Super Power Yajnas both, Samidha or wood predominating with oily prin
