Creating Waves of Awareness
amāya yas ca bhūtanam
yayate yena suvrata
tad eva hy amayām drāvyām
na punāti cikitsitam
“Oh good soul,
does not a thing, applied therapeutically,
cure a disease,
which was caused by that very same thing?”
(Vyasa K.D. SB1/5/33)
When a homoeopathic remedy is given, a process is set into motion that is described as follows:
Brahma-bhuta prasannatma, na socati na kanksati
“On the level above duality of hate and desire, there is no more hankering or lamenting.”
This is similar to the alchemical process of turning mercury into gold. Mercury represents the mind and gold represents the heart. When the mind is ruled by the heart, all base desires, such as the desire for physical love, are transmutated to spiritual love.
The transmutation is an internal process, which happens by grace, rather than just personal effort. All that is required for this is sincerity and the desire to receive it. The so-called transmutation of matter is really an internal process – it is not about producing gold, but about the spiritualisation of man.
The heart is the center of the body and when we work from the center, the periphery is always included. When we work from the periphery – the mind – the center is neglected. This is the disease that manifests on the physical plane.
We take the mental symptoms as all-important in homoeopathy, because when the mind is cured, man is enabled to control that mind by the heart. Worry, fear, doubt and desire, are the things that make us sick, because they originate in the periphery. Living from the mind is the extremist attitude,
because the mind is situated at the top and thus out of the center.
Taking our cue from the fact that nature always seeks to effect things with the least possible energy, we can also understand that surrender requires the least effort. Every change in nature always uses the least possible energy, because nature does not like waste. Similarly, surrender requires the least
effort, because it is a process of giving in. Just as in Judo, victory is achieved by giving in to the opponent's energy. Thus the goal is reached by the least effort.
Considering the remedies as spiritual entities, we need to understand that by trituration and succussion, we liberate the indwelling spirit of the substance, which because it concerns a remedial agent, displays the same state of mind and emotions as the sick person. Since two negatives make a positive – not no is yes – the negative force of the remedy neutralises the negative force of the diseased state and health is restored. Health is in the true sense of the word living from love, which is felt by the heart and not by the brain. When the heart blossoms in love, the brain must retire. Nobody can explain the wonder of love, because it follows its own laws. The laws of the material plane do not apply and have no jurisdiction.
Since matter cannot be destroyed, but only transmutated into something else, the remedy so produced is a transmutation of inertness to medicinal power. Something can never become nothing – it can only become something else. We see the best example of this if we burn a piece of wood, in which the elemental substances are locked up in a particular configuration. Fire “destroys” the wood, but the ashes contain all those elements and these are shown in a different configuration as when present in the wood. Consequently, we can understand the transmutation of the remedial substance from inert to medicinal. We can also understand the transmutation of the diseased state of ego and selfishness to unconditional love, which is our natural constitutional state. We are units of love, covered by the physical body, which hides that love. Wrong identification with the mind and body accounts for the true diseased state. Homoeopathy puts an end to this state and restores the original love of which we are made.
269. The homeopathic system of medicine develops the medicinal powers to a previously unheard degree by means of a process unique to it. This process develops and liberates the medicinal powers of crude substances to an immeasurable and penetrating efficaciousness, even in those that in the crude state give no evidence of the slightest medicinal power on the human or animal body. This remarkable change in the latent medicinal qualities of natural bodies develops the unperceived dynamic powers that are capable of influencing the state of health, changing the well-being of all animal and human life.
Subject: Vedic Physical Sciences of Matter with unsuspected Vitality and Scientific Temper
The following observations of eminent/great scientists would appear as if Vedas are being retold.
J.C. Bose found with the help of gross instruments in the laboratory some kind of "fatigue" in metal just like human beings. Gross atoms even in an inanimate thing are born, develop and lose vitality
and die. They have mind of their own.
Einstein confirmed in the laboratory the Flux observed earlier by Vedic rsi of yore Kanad and later by Buddha. According to Einstein most of the particles in the sub atomic world live for short period of a small fraction of a nano of a second and change to other particles, while some of those behaving like waves and wavicles. This Flux in atoms is a continuous process. Einstein also made certain metaphysical observations like God does not play dice and in all probabilities God has kept some "hidden variable" responsible for this activity.
Isaac Newton in spite of his so many discoveries relating to light, gravitation, laws of motion, certain mathematical laws etc, was still having a feeling that some thing was missing in his discoveries.
He wrote in the Optick " … does it not appear that there is a supreme Being, incorporeal, living,
intelligent, omnipresent who in infinite space sees the things themselves intimately and thoroughly, perceives them and comprehends them wholly by their immediate presence to Himself."
Even now many scientists have a feeling that there is some thing beyond sub-atomic particles in the atoms that make these tiny invisible balls to move at a great speed.
The Vedas combine science with metaphysics and clearly mention that it is God who is the giver of knowledge of all sciences as "Sahstra sam " (R.V. 1-10-11). The scientists are advised to study
cause and effect of all material elements and also how the objects are produced and there after utilize these properly (R.V. 5-47-3).
By following these guidelines they can alleviate much suffering of the people (R.V. 5-77-4). Without the knowledge and practical application of physical sciences, it is not possible to eradicate poverty and
attain prosperity (R.V. 1-34-1 to 5).
In the Rig-Veda the focal point is the human being and the knowledge about physical sciences contained there in is for the welfare of the entire mankind. This knowledge also helps the human beings to develop
To get a feel of Vedic physical sciences, reference to a few hymns are given in the very beginning.
The Sun never sets or rises and it is the earth, which rotates (Sama Veda121).
The gravitational effect of solar system makes the earth stable (R.V.1-103-2, 1-115-4 and
The subtle axle of the earth does not get rusted and the earth continues to revolve on its axle (R.V. 1-164-29).
The science of Time and its subtle nature is described in (R.V.1-92-12 and 1-95-8).
The need to study the properties of water, air and fire for discovering and manufacturing aircrafts, ships and other vehicles capable of moving in the firmament, land and water are mentioned in
Rig Veda 1-3-1,2, 1-34-1, 1-140-1 and many other hymns.
Physical sciences relating to agriculture, medicine, astronomy mathematics particularly algebra, toxicology etc. are described in R.V.1-71-9,4-57-5, Sama Veda 121 and many other hymns/riks.
For a better appreciation of Vedic science, a few terms used in the original Vedic bhasha (language) as contained in the mantras/riks are mentioned.
Viman diye neshu for vehicles like aircrafts (RV 1-34-1, 9 and 1-85-7).
Vaj gatau- very high-speed vehicles in the air (R.V 6-60-12).
Rekha di ganit vidys vigyaya- the science of Algebra (R.V 1-19-1).
Surya Vidyau tau- knowledge of the Sun and electricity.
Indr-agani-power, energy and electricity (R.V 6-60-12, 13),
krishna garbha- knower of Algebra (R.V 6-75-2).
Vidyamadi bha vidyut vidyante yashate- in which electric telegraph wires have been arranged
Many other terms and words relating to physical sciences can be found in these hymns like kanu, anu, bhutas, maha bhutas, tatva, maha tatva etc., The other terms have been used like Ratha for vehicles
moving in the firmament and middle region, on the surface of the earth and over the water, ashvinau for scientists, anu and kanu for gross and subtle atoms, tan matras for sub atomic particles sponda for sound etc.
Few other words are amritasya nidhi - ambrosia (R.V. 1-186-3),
Brahamand pinda i.e macrocosm and microcosm.
In Yajur Veda 18-24 and 25 many terms relating to addition, subtraction, division, square, cube, square root, and cube root have been used.
Yajur Veda 18-22 and R.V. 6-22-2 also refer to certain other terms of the physical sciences.
In the Vedas scientists are described as men and women of absolute self-control, truthful with a scientific outlook and destroyers of miseries (R.V., 1-3-4).
With the help of these, scientists once could travel far on the earth and also in the sky through conveyances, which run and touch the middle region (R.V., 1-3-1, 6-22-2 and 1-22-2).
Such scientists from both the sexes go across to distance places quickly like the mind and electricity (R.V., 1-71-9). In this hymn aircraft and even space ships are hinted at.
These ashvinaus should be well versed in Physics, agricultural sciences (R.V. 4-57-5), medical sciences (R.V. 5-74-3), astronomy (S.V. 121) and other sciences.
There is a mention of infrared rays, study of Algebra (Rekha di ganit vidya), sound as a medium of knowledge for various sciences, diseases like bile, cough, jaundice and others and their treatment
etc. The relevant hymns in this regard are in Rig-Veda 1-185-2, 1-12-1, 2, 1-22-1 to 4, 1-2-3, 1-95-1, 1-101-1 and many others.
