Yoga for Health

If the mind is kept cool and calm at all times, you will have wonderful
health, strength and vitality.

Let any disease remain in your body. Do not bother too much. Develop the
powers of endurance and resistance. Strengthen your body, mind and nerves.

Take plenty of open-air exercises, substantial nutritious food, medicated
oil bath and plenty of rest.

Be moderate in food, drink and enjoyments. Lead a spiritual life. All
diseases will leave your body by themselves.

Do not go to the doctors very often unless emergency. Endeavour to qualify
yourself as your own doctor. Understand the laws of nature and the
principles of hygiene and health.

Bask in the sun. Expose your body to the rays of the sun for a short time
daily. This is heliotherapy or sun-treatment. Sun is the source of energy
and power. You will derive energy and power from the sun.

Soak 12 almonds at night. Remove the skin and take the almonds with some
sugarcandy in the early morning. Or you can make a refreshing beverage by
grinding these almonds with a little black pepper and sugarcandy. This is a
fine, cooling and strength-giving tonic.

Rest in bed is necessary. Adjust your diet. Take simple, wholesome, easily
digestible, bland and non-irritating food. Give up hot, pungent curries,
chutneys and chilliest.

If you can fast for a whole day, it is all the better. Fasting eliminates
poisons and overhauls the system thoroughly. You can take sago and milk
barley water and fruits like sweet oranges, grapes, etc.

Observe Brahmacharya. Get up at 4 a.m. And practice Japa of 'Hari Om' or any
other Mantra and also meditation for one hour. The Name of the Lord is the
best medicine or tonic in the world.

You should have intense faith in the power of the Names of the Lord.
Incurable diseases are cured by Japa or singing Hari's Name.

Meditation creates new, healthy vibrations in all the cells of the body and
removes any kind of disease. All the tissues are bathed in the nectar that
flows during meditation. All germs that cause diseases are destroyed.

Resort to Nature Cure and Yogic Chikitsa. Practise regularly Pranayama,
breathing exercises, Asanas, concentration and meditation. This is the ideal
