« on: January 02, 2011, 10:26:00 PM »
Dear friends,

I recieved a mail recently on the benefits of thulasi plant.

______


Thulasi,when taken along with pepper in the evenings for three days consecutively, treats cold, cough and fever.

2. Irritation in the urinary tract is healed when the juice of Thulasi and cow's buttermilk mixed together are taken thrice a day.

3. When the juice of Thulasi with salt is consumed in an empty stomach for forty eight
days, epilepsy gets cured.

4. Chest pain is alleviated when Thulasi's juice is taken along with honey thrice a day.

5. The juice of Thulasi mixed with water and taken in the early mornings for a hundred days is a great therapy for all sorts of diseases.

6. Thirst, flatulence, and absence of appetite are eased when Thulasi’s juice is drunk, mixed with hot water.

7. Thulasi and two pinches of Omam (Carum Carvi is its botanical name), well ground and mixed with water, and consumed once in the mornings after food, is a sure remedy
for chicken pox and measles.

8. Even the poisonous bite of a scorpion is cured when the affected area is rubbed with the leaves of Krishna Thulasi (dark thulasi).

9. When the juice of Thulasi is taken in the mornings and evenings for forty days, it acts as a treatment for leprosy!

Dear SLakshmi,

Thanks for the nice post on Thulasi. Thulasi is not only a plant
associated with divinity, but is also of great medicinal value.
There is one Thulasi plant with dark green leaves, which is called
Krishna Thulasi.  This is what is used for medicinal purposes.  Bilwa, Neem and Banyan tree leaves, and barks have got also great medicinal value.  In Ayur Veda and Siddha Vaidya, these are
extensively used.

When ever a Jnani attains disembodied state, on his Samadhi,
either Thulasi plant or a Linga is installed.  The idea is a Janani
has no name and form and one should not identify the Samadhi,
as the Samadhi of a particular Jnani.  All Jnanis are Brahmaswarupam even after becoming disembodied. 

Sri Bhagavan knows most of the plants and trees in the Hill.
And He has written some poems on the medicinal values of these plants in Tamizh.  There are no English translations for these.

Dried ginger, pepper and one root called Thippili are called the
three gems in Ayur Veda and Siddha Vaidya.  There is one book called Trikadukam in Tamizh about these three nuts and plants.

Subramanian sir,

I remember reading that bhagavan would swallow a piece of ginger every morning on an empty stomach first thing in the morning. This humble ginger is supposed to have such immense digestive properties that even diseases like ulcer and gastreotritis problems are solved easily. Bhagavan also talked highly about the curing properties of garlic when taken as a medicinal food, although the same garlic when taken in food otherwise aggrevates rajasic tendencies in people...

Dear SLakshmi,

Yes.  Sri Bhagavan used many natural medicines, herbs, plants,
nuts and roots for various ailments.  He used to apply some oil,
made out of herbs for His rheumatic pain on His legs.  He did not
display any siddhic powers to cure Himself.  Once He had constipation and in spite of telling the attendant, Kadukkai, which He had wanted,  was not brought from shop.  He stopped reminding the attendant.  On the third day morning, a villager brought to Him a sackful kadukkais, stating that while he was coming from the village, these kadukkais had dropped from a cart going in front,
since the sack had a hole.  He told Sri Bhagavan:  I do not know
what use will this be for you.  Nevertheless,  I brought!

Everyone was surprised.  Sri Bhagavan asked the attendant to open the sack and take one measure of these nuts and return the rest to the villager.  He then just took one piece and chewed it to get cured!   He always used to say:  It is Arunachala, who does all these things.  He never owned up such miracles.
