● Tomato – Tomatoes have natural antiseptic properties that dry up whiteheads and blackheads. Peel and mash a small tomato. Apply the tomato pulp to your blackheads and whiteheads before going to bed. Leave the tomato pulp on your face while you sleep and then wash your face in warm water in the morning.

● Lemon -Wash your face in warm water. Then, squeeze the juice of one lemon into a bowl. Add in a pinch of salt and stir the mixture. Apply the mixture to your blackheads and whiteheads. Leave the mixture on for approximately 20 minutes and then wash your face with warm water again.

● Lime – You can also use equal parts of lime juice and cinnamon powder and apply this mixture to blackheads. Leave it on overnight and rinse it off in the morning

● Cornstarch – Mix about a three-to-one cornstarch to vinegar ratio into a paste. Apply it to your problem areas and let sit for 15 to 30 minutes. Remove the paste with warm water and a washcloth.

● Yogurt – Mix three tablespoons of plain yogurt with two tablespoons of oatmeal. Add one teaspoon of olive oil and one tablespoon of lemon juice to the mixture. Stir the mixture thoroughly and apply it to the effective area of the face. Let the mixture sit for five to seven minutes then rinse off with cold water.

● Almond or oatmeal – Mix either oatmeal or almond powder with just enough rose water to make a spreadable paste. Apply it to your problem areas with your fingertips first and then apply it to the rest of your face. Let it set for about 15 minutes and then rinse your face with cold water.

● Rice – Soak rice in milk for 5 hours and then grind this in a blender until it is paste-like in consistency. Use the paste as a scrub on affected areas of the body.

● Potatoes – Grate raw potatoes and then rub the area with the mixture. Wash it off after 15 minutes.

● Fenugreek leaves – Crush some fenugreek leaves and mix with water to form a paste. Put this on the face for 15 minutes and then remove it. Do this every night to keep your face free of blackheads.

● Coriander leaves – Mix some coriander leaves and a little turmeric powder with water and form a paste. Use this as a mask to eliminate blackheads.

● Oatmeal -Grind oatmeal into a powder in a blender and then add some rose water. Use this on affected areas for 15 minutes and then wash it off with cold water.

● Baking soda – Prepare a mixture of equal parts of baking soda and water and rub it onto your face or other body areas prone to blackheads. Leave it on for 15 minutes and then rinse it off with warm water.

● Honey is also good for removing blackheads. Spread honey on the affected area and remove it after 15 minutes.

Heart is the main support beam

In Ayurveda the heart is considered the “seat” of consciousness. The master Ayurvedic source text, the Charaka Samhita states, “hridaye chetana sthanam.” Translated it means, “the seat of consciousness is in the heart.”

The Ayurvedic texts also describe the heart as “Hrdaya.” b652aa646096a50a643371592e7c9578
This Sanskrit word consists of three parts — each with its own meaning:
Hr means to receive,
Da to give, and
Ya to move.

The essential qualities of the heart are contained within this Sanskrit name – receiving, giving and moving.
It is further described as Mahata – great,
and Artha – serving all purposes,
meaning in Ayurveda that it is an organ with a variety of important functions.
The texts of Charaka go on to describe the heart as, “indispensable for all mental and physical activities,” because the entire sense perception, in total, depends on the heart.
It is further described as Pranayatana —the seat of consciousness and the mind.
So important is the heart in Ayurveda that it is considered like the main support beam in a house; without that support, the house collapses.
Ayurvedic therapies help restore the connection between heart, mind and self. They include dietary, herbal, behavioral and environmental tactics that allow one to become more established in Sattva – a state of stable, enduring balance and happiness – sometimes described as a field of bliss.

आयुर्वेद शास्त्र में ह्रदय को चेतना का स्थान गया है I चरक आचार्य कहेते हैं की ह्रदय चेतना स्थानम I ह्रदय के अक्षर का मत्लब ही कुछ ऐसा होता है –

‘ ह्र ‘ का मतलब – लेना – ग्रहण करना ,
‘ द ‘ का मतलब – देना , और
‘ य ‘ का मतलब – गति या चालित करना

ह्रदय को महत और अर्थ भी कहा गया है, जिसका सीधा मतलब महान और जो सब कार्य करता है ऐसा होता है , इस तरह ह्रदय एक साथ बहोत सरे कार्यों का भार निभाता है I

चरक कहेते हैं की मानसिक अवं शारीरिक गतिविधिओं से ह्रदय को अलग करना नामुमकिन है, क्यूंकि सभी संवेदनाओ को लेना – ग्रहण करना , देना -भेजना या चलायमान रखना ये सभी कार्य ह्रदय में ही होते हैं I
ह्रदय को ” ” प्राणायतन ” भी कहा है , इस तरह ह्रदय शरिर का मुख्या आधारस्तंभ है, जिसके बिना पूरा घर – शरीर गिर जाता है I

आयुर्वेद की चिकित्सा से ह्रदय – मन अवं शारीर का योग्य संतुलन बना रहेता है , इस चिकित्सा में खान पान हर्बल आयुर्वेदिक औषधे और हमारी रेहान सेहन का मुख्य भाग रहता है, इन सबसे शरीर में ‘ सत्वित्कता ‘ निर्माण होती है जो की शारीर के सभी अवयवों का तालमेल बना कर अच्छा स्वस्त्य प्रदान करती है I

Celebrate your Inner Light on Diwali

Diwali or Deepavali, popularly known as the “festival of lights,” is a five day festival which starts on dhanteras, celebrated on thirteenth lunar day of Krishna paksha (dark fortnight) of the Hindu calendar month ashwin and ends on bhai beej, celebrated on second lunar day of Shukla paksha (bright fortnight) of the Hindu calendar month kartik.

What is the reason for playing with fireworks on Diwali??

Whatever negativity – anger, jealousy or fear – has accumulated in your mind in the last one year should get dissolved in the form of all the crackers. With each cracker, burst any negativity you may have for any person, or at the most write the name of that person on the cracker and burst it, and just know that all ill feelings, jealousy etc, has got burnt. But what do we do? Instead of finishing the negativity, either we wish that person to get finished or burn ourselves in that fire of negativity. It should be the other way around. Thinking all the negativity or ill feelings have gone out with those crackers, become friendly with that person again. There is a feeling of lightness, love, peace and happiness, and then go and have sweets with that person and celebrate Diwali. This is only true Diwali, by bursting crackers burn the bad qualities of that person, not the person.

What is importance of Diya (Lamps) ?

The lights and diyas of Diwali relate to-
“तमसो मा  ज्योतिर्गमय II ”  (take me from darkness to light).


Just like light is misunderstood as lighting lamps and not internal gyan, Diwali is misunderstood for ‘getting wealth and more wealth’ rather than ‘get wealth and detach me from it as it is physical and so temporary.’

With Diwali round the corner, you can already feel festivities in the air. Families are upbeat about the ‘National Festival’ and are busy in cleaning and decorating their houses for the big day. But, let us all, for a moment, reflect on something very important. Do we really know what Diwali means?

The Significance of Diwali According to Hindu mythology, Diwali marks the return of Lord Rama to his kingdom of Ayodhya after defeating Ravana, the ruler of Lanka, in the epic Ramayana. In essence, the festival signifies the victory of good over evil.

However, in Hindu philosophy, Diwali signifies “the awareness of the inner light”. It is the assertion that there is something beyond the physical body and mind which is pure, infinite, and eternal, called the Atma or Jiva (soul). Diwali is an occasion to realise and know this inner light, which outshines all darkness, removes all obstacles, and dispels all ignorance.

The realization of Atma gives us Life, Light and Love (JivaJyotiPrem). And, when we learn to love and serve our loved ones unconditionally, without expecting anything in return, we bring ananda (joy) in our lives.

Remember that what happens inside a being is what is reality; external manifestations are only its reflection. Don’t attempt to change the reflection but try to change the real thing. May you all realise the full potential of the Supreme energy on this beautiful festival of lights, Diwali.

What does Ayurveda say? 

The core philosophy of Ayurveda is to clean the body, mind and senses and realise that ‘I am soul’. All ancient Ayurvedic texts ultimately aim at cleansing not only the physical, but also the subtle, that is, the sub-conscious mind (chitta). In this festive season, we urge you to utilize the knowledge engrained in ancient Ayurvedic texts and purify yourself at all levels.

In our fast paced lives, we often forget to clean our body and senses. Our minds too are perpetually over-stimulated with stress, worries and negative thoughts. With the body, mind and senses unclean, it is impossible to realize the soul. That’s why, even though many of us are trying to find peace by meditating or chanting mantras, we still do not feel that joy in our lives.

This Diwali, let’s not only clean, decorate and light our houses, but learn this simple method of cleansing and realizing our inner light. Let’s take the pledge to make Ayurveda a part of our lives… forever….This Diwali let us pray and feel grateful – let there be prosperity in every corner of the world – let all people experience love, joy and abundance in their lives.
I wish you all a very healthy, happy, peaceful and enlightening Diwali.

7 Dangerous acts after a meal

1. Don’t smoke — Experiments from experts proves that smoking a cigarette after meal is comparable to smoking 10 cigarettes (chances of cancer is higher)

2. Don’t eat fruits immediately — Immediately eating fruits after meals will cause stomach to be bloated with air. Thre fore take fruits 1 -2 hours after meal or 1 hour before meal.

3. Don’t drink tea—— Because tea leaves contain a high content of acid. This substance will cause the protein content in the food we consume to be hundred thus difficult to digest.

4. Don’t loosen your belt ———- Loosening the belt after meal will easily cause the intestine to be twisted and blocked.

5. Don’t bathe———- ——- Bathing after meal will cause the increase of blood flow to the hands, legs and body thus the amount of blood around the stomach will therefore decrease, this will weaken the digestive system in our stomach.

6. Don’t walk about ———- — People always say that after a meal walk a hundred steps and you will live till 99. In fact one should walk slowly after meal. Fast Walking will cause the digestive system to be unable to absorb the nutrition from the food we intake.

7. Don’t sleep immediately —- ——– The food we intake will not be to digest properly. Thus will lead to gastric and infection in our intestine.

You can consume it in the morning after heating. This dish ‘khir’ enriched by the rays of the moon for two and half to three hours pacifies pitta, is cool in effect and sattvic. Moreover it proves beneficial in pacifying the mind, and keeping the body healthy throughout the year. The mind attains peace through it and it cures the diseases caused by aggravated pitta.

 

On this night make sure that you look with fixed gaze at the moon for fifteen minutes. Blink your eyes for about 30-60 seconds. Take benefit of the moon rays for at least fifteen minutes; even more would not be harmful.
Thereafter spread out an asana made of any material which is a non-conductor of electricity, either on the roof or on the ground. You can even lie down while looking at the moon, if you wish. With each inhalation chant mentally the divine name and fill peace with the air. Repose in the Lord Narayana who is free of resolves. You will be greatly benefited by doing this.
