Your Vedic Astrology Advisor is G. Kumar


In the West Pythagorus discovered the the Law of Vibration.

This Law states that each number has a particular vibration. Astro-Numerology is the synthesis of Astrology and Numerology, the perfect integration between the science of the Heavens and the Science of Numbers!

The nine numbers correspond to the nine planets in Astrology.

We will define Ketu and Rahu. They are the Nodes of the Moon. The Moon's Ascending Node is Rahu and the Descending Node is Ketu. The orbit of the Sun and the Moon intersect at two points and they are these Nodes. Since now we know which planet represents which number, let us analyze the different properties of the nine base numbers .

The concept of the Fadic Number

If you add up all the digits which comprise your date of birth

(for example 23/06/1955 = 2+3+0+6+1+9+5+5 = 31, 3+1 = 4 )

you get the combined Fadic Number. Here in this example it is 31. 3 plus 1 = 4. So 4 is the Fadic Number. Find out the Fadic Number of the person concerned. There are effects for both Fadic and the Combined Fadic Numbers.

Once you find the Fadic Number of the person, know that that person will have the characteristics of the planet representing that Number. Now we are giving here the effects for Unitarians, who are ruled by the Number ONE.

One represents the luminary SUN

Two represents the luminary MOON

Three represents the planet JUPITER

Four represents the planet RAHU

Five represents the planet MERCURY

Six represents the planet VENUS

Seven represents the planet KETU

Eight represents the planet SATURN

Nine represents the planet MARS

ONE - Ruled by the King of the Solar Logos, the Sun

These are the solar characteristics :

This number is the middle and the centre of all numbers. This number represents all that is created and the visible Actuality. Individuals born under this number aspire for greatness in no uncertain way. Basically creative and imaginative people having great originality and individuality people born under this number are determined and engaged in noble activities. These qualities will exist in no uncertain degree in those who are born on dates 1, 10, 19, 28, etc. These qualities will be highly manifest in those born in the month when the Sun is in the highest exalted position (From March 21 to April 28 ). Persons born under this number always rise high in their respective professions. To achieve the summum bonum , the highest altissimo in their profession is their main objective. Whatever be their field they always protect their authority and the wishes of their subordinates.

They always use their days ( 1, 10, 19, 28 ) for the implementation of their creative plans. They are very friendly with people whose numbers are 2, 4 and 7. (With people whose birthdays are 2 4 7 11 13 16 20 22 25 29 and 31). The auspicious days are Sunday and Monday.

If the numbers 2 4 7 11 13 16 20 22 25 29 31 coincide with these days that day's work will be highly fruitful.

Alexander the Great , Charles the First , James the First , Lord Wellington and Emperor Paul of Russia were born under the influence of this number.

Personality Overview

Controller of Life - SUN

It is the most powerful luminary in intrinsic strength. It is one of the functional luminaries and is the King in the Government of the Almighty. Hence all regal qualities are attributed to this luminary.

If the Unitarian - ruled by the number One - is you!

You are interested in the psychic sciences. You are more active than contemplative.

You are regal in outlook and always adopt a pragmatic approach to life. You are more practical than sentimental.

You may be not successful in the worldly sphere as you are not much attached to wealth and possessions. You are not very careful about spending .

You are frank and outspoken. Because of that you generate many secret enemies. But they will always dread you because of your inherent fine qualities.

The Sun represents Prudence - the greatest of all the seven cardinal virtues. This quality will be predominant in you. As this virtue predominates in you people will honour and respect you even during adversity.

An Analytical Review

The zodiac sign representing this number is Leo. (Don ' t confuse this with the birth sign in Astrology). People born under this zodiacal constellation are truly leonine and overactive. Regal in outlook and adventurous in nature Leoninians always push their way to the top. If the Sun is strongly positioned in their horoscopes they will definitely get chances to exhibit their regal valour.

People consider you rash and ambitious. The Sun represents Politics - the science of the state. The Solarians are usually politically conscious and politically oriented. If these people are born between March 21 to April 28 ( viz - when the Sun is in a state of deep exaltation ) their shining in the political field will become a living reality.

You can expect political victory when the Sun transits favourable points like March 21 to April 28 and August 16 to Sept 16. Your main drawback is that you jump into things without much aforethought . You should learn to persevere rather than quit. Patience is another virtue which you should incorporate.

Regarding diseases - the most likely disease which may affect the Solarians is the disease of the heart. Blood pressure is also another. Eye troubles are also indicated. Their best fruits and medicinal leaves are dried grapes, nutmeg, orange, lemon and ginger. They should take in honey. They should take care of their health at the ages 19 28 37 55 & 64. They should guard against ill health and excess exercise during the months of October, December and January.

Negative Aspect

The Solarians are prone to sudden anger. Anger is said to be man's greatest enemy. Sun is considered to be a natural malefic in Astrology. You may indulge in Politics and its negative aspect manifests as lack of mental peace and happiness.

Effects for Fadic Number 2

Personality Overview

Controller of Life - Moon

You are ruled numerologically by the luminary Moon. The main characteristic of Moon is its fickle and inconstant nature and this has already swayed your temperament. You are moody at times and this depression generally saps your vitality.

The best remedy for you is to take recourse to yogic practices to overcome depression. Have implicit faith in God. Optimism is far better than pessimism.

Your inconstant nature makes you hesitant at times. You may lack self-assertion and become indecisive at times.

Wealth wise you are subject to terrific ups and downs corresponding to the lunar phases of waxing and waning. You will be subject to emotional suffering. You like to travel. Your honesty will be appreciated by people.

Your personal magnetism will win friends and influence people. Your special charm will offset the minus points caused by the fickle and inconstant nature of the Moon.

Mental strength and courage will be adversely affected at times. The ideal remedial measure will be to fast on Mondays consecrating yourself to the Mother Divine.

In Vedic Astrology, Moon rules the mind ( Manasthu Hinagu ). If you consider Milton's statement "Mind is its own place and can make a Hell out of Heaven or a Heaven out of Hell", you can visualize how important a luminary Moon is. The Vedas aver that Moon represents the mind of the Cosmic Man (Chandrama manaso Jatha ) and is one of the important political planets. Moon rules over three constellations of the Sidereal Zodiac - Aldebaran (Rohini), Delta Corvi (Hasta) & Altair (Sravana).

An Analytical Review

Zodiac Sign - Sagittarius

The zodiac sign representing this number is the divine Sagittarius. ( Do not confuse this with the Birth sign in Astrology ). It is a warlike sign indicating a man holding bows and arrows. Its meaning is that life will be full of enemies and that you may be lacking in mental peace and happiness of the timid man who acquiesces to evil forces.

Sagittarians are basically God fearing people. Their love of Nature and religiosity stand out as outstanding characteristics.

Sagittarians generally tend towards spirituality. They are always probing into the mysteries of life and always try to find an answer to the riddle of life.

Blood pressure and diseases of the digestive tract may affect you during middle age. The tendency to obesity should be checked.

Negative Aspect

You may become too idealistic when practical life needs some business insight and foresight. Your becoming spiritual makes you carry the cross of the Redeemer. You may have to take up other's sins for redemption.

In Astro-Gemology, Jupiter represents Golden Topaz. Wearing this stone on a Shukla Paksha Monday ( fifteen days after the New Moon ) will enhance the luck of the Threeians. The Sanskrit text, The Jataka Chandrika assigns Topaz to Jupiter (Devejyasya cha Pyshyaragam). Thursday is the day of Thor or Jupiter (from the Latin Iovis dies and the Sanskrit Brihaspativar).

In Transcendental Philosophy the Number Three is considered very sacred. Absolute Being is defined as Existence - Consciousness - Beatitude. The Trinitarian Unity is highlighted in both Hinduism and Christianity. (Om, Tat, Sat & Father, Son, the Holy Ghost). In Freudian Psycho-Analysis, Mind is an Energy Organization made up of 3 factors - Id, Ego and Superego. In Vedanta, the 3 Gunas make up Nature!( Satwas, Rajas & Thamas). Holistic Medicine or AyurVeda is built upon the theory of the 3 humours (Vata, Pitta & Kapha). Transactional Analysis deals with the Parent-Adult-Child formula and Psychology deals with the three levels of the Mind (Conscious, Sub-conscious and Unconscious). Dante's Divine Comedy is divided into 3 portions - The Inferno, Purgatorio and Paradiso!

FOUR - Ruled by the Ascending Node or the North Node of the Moon, Rahu

In Astronomy, the two mathematical points where the orbits of the Moon and the Sun intersect are called Ascending Node ( North Node ) & Descending Node (South Node), Rahu & Ketu. (The orbits of the Sun & the Moon differ by 8 degrees ). They are not actual planets but are shadowy planets. They are important determinants of behaviour. In Sidereal Astrology great importance is attached to the Nodal Axis which becomes the pivot of the horoscope. In Mythology ( which is allegorical and symbolic ), Rahu & Ketu are characterized as demons as both these shadowy planets are natural malefics. Rahu resembles Saturn and Ketu - Mars.

Four is not considered to be a very lucky number as it is ruled by a malefic.

Effects of Fadic Number Four

If the Fourian is YOU!

Your Numerological Number is 4 ruled by the Moon's Ascending Node, Rahu. The character of the Fourians is unique and known only to themselves. They view all things from a totally different angle as opposed to the ordinary people who view everything from a common angle. In every argument they argue from the opposite side and because of this tendency they gain a lot of secret enemies. They hate all laws and legal frameworks. They oppose rulers and always establish their own kingdoms and republics. They always believe in the freedom of expression and opinion. They are the people who are born on 4 13 22 amp 31 . They do not make friends easily. People with numbers 1 2 7 & 8 attract them. The Fourians do not succeed in the realm of material prosperity like the others. If they save money or make money - the way they use it will astound everybody. From June 21 to July 21 and July 22 to the end of August is the best time for the fructification of their efforts.

Their lucky days are Saturday , Sunday and Monday . If these days coincide with the 4 13 22 31 1 2 7 10 11 16 19 20 25 28 29 these days will be the most auspicious.

Personality Overview

Controller of Life - Moon's Ascending Node

You are controlled by the Moon's Ascending Node, Rahu. Those under the influence of Rahu are always aggressive in outlook and come up financially. They do not hesitate to employ means that are not above board to achieve their objectives. Their business insight and foresight always pay rich dividends. They are very pragmatic in outlook and are more practical than theoretical.

You are subjected to fits of elation and dejection. Ambiguity always upsets you.

In money matters also, ups and downs are indicated. You have tremendous risk-taking ability which is needed in business.

Since you are frank and outspoken many secret enemies are generated. Your ability to argue logically will confound most people. You will be a controversial figure because you love to destroy darkness, prejudice and ignorance.

Never moving away from the path you have chosen with a fanatical zeal you always push your way to your chosen aim.

In Vedic Astrology, if properly posited, Rahu is the bestower of Wealth. He is also known as the Mokshakaraka. He is the planet of gambling, speculation and hoarding and if powerfully posited in one's natal chart can give immense wealth. The wealth so attained may not be made through legal means. Monetary windfall due to lottery, stock-exchange and jackpot is attributed to Rahu. He rules over three constellations of the Sidereal Zodiac - Alpha Orionis( Aridra), Alpha Bootis(Swati) & Lamda Aquari(Satabhisha).

An Analytical Review

The zodiacal sign representing this number is Aquarius. (Do not confuse this with the birth sign in Astrology ). Those ruled by this sign are always lovers of the human race.

They are often misunderstood . They are always sufferers , always plagued by one problem or the other. Even if they achieve success they have to pay a heavy price for it. "Success exacts a heavy price" is true of them.

Aquarians are generally isolated people. They are loners wanting to move away from this madding crowd. They always feel that justice is denied to them.

Great patience and perseverance are exhibited by the people born under the influence of this number. Stoicism, fortitude and indifference are the virtues accruing from it.

Regarding health these people always are subjected to unknown diseases. They are also subjected to thoughts of melancholy. Anemia, mental tension, backache, headache and eye troubles are common. Fruits and medicinal leaves best suited for them are spinach and ocimum sanctum (sweet basil). They gain a lot due to electric therapy and hypnotism. They should renounce high cholesterol containing stuffs like meat and eggs. They should guard against diseases during the months of January , February, August , July and September. They may experience changes in health during the ages of 13 22 31 40 49 58 and 67.

Negative Aspect

You may be prone to anger as Rahu is an incendiary planet. Anger is said to be man's greatest enemy. If you destroy anger, you become the " Self-Actualizing Person of Abraham Maslow living in the widest possible frame of reference."

In Astro-Gemology, Rahu represents Hessonite. Wearing this stone on a Shukla Paksha Saturday ( fifteen days after the New Moon ) will enhance the luck of the Fourians. The Sanskrit text, The Jataka Chandrika assigns Hessonite to Rahu .

In Transcendental Philosophy the Number Four is considered very sacred. Transcendental Consciousness is known as the Fourth or Tureeya. Transcending the three relative states of Consciousness - the waking, the dreaming and the dreamless sleep - is the Divine Transcendental Consciousness which can be experienced via Yoga. In Yogic Psychology the fourth element of the Mind is the Superconscious Mind (the other three being Conscious, Subconscious and Unconscious). The Superconscious is the foundation of the Mind and not the Subconscious as believed by modern psychologists.

The Indian sages talked about the Fourfold Veds. Yogas are Four!

In Western Astrology The Fourth House is the IC , the Imum Coeli, an important house. This, they say, is the source of the Subconscious Mind.

Mythology Story

One powerful demon drank the nectar of Immortality. This was reported by the Sun and the Moon to Lord Vishnu. He used the divine discus and cut the demon into two. The head of the demon became Rahu and the tail Ketu known as Caput Draconis and Cauda Draconis in Latin. Astronomical symbology has it that Vishnu is the orbit of the earth known as the Ecliptic and the demons, the North & South Nodes of the Moon. In his book " De Sapientia Vaterum " ( The Wisdom of the Ancients ), Bacon opined that scientific truths are contained in myths!

Personality Overview

Controller of Life - VENUS

You are controlled by the planet of love Venus. Venus rules all the material and the sensual aspects of life.

Venus rules gambling and business. Tendencies towards business will manifest during Venusian influence. Venus inclines one to the pleasures of the senses in no uncertain degree.

Remarkable resilience is another Venusian characteristic.

The opposite sex will be attracted to you in no uncertain measure. Your good nature and gentle habits will win the admiration of all around you.

The grace and the dignity which you are endowed with will win friends and influence people. Your charming manners will be worthy of admiration.

Poetry and the fine arts will have a tremendous influence on your life. Venus is known as Kavi ( poet ) and hence his tendency towards verse & the blushful Hippocrene is universally recognized.

One of your drawbacks are that you are too dominated by the senses. Your love of parties and the sensual pleasures of life will take its toll depriving you of saintly wisdom. Your courage in the face of adversity will be remarkable. Prosperity will grace you in middle age.

Excessive indulgence in sensual pleasures is another characteristic of this fair planet. Music, cinema & dance will attract you in no uncertain measure. Love for gambling, jackpot and the stock market will grip you at times.

Your another drawback is that you are subject to the influence of the opposite sex. Wealth, wine and women will have their sway despite all saintly counsel.

In Vedic Astrology Venus represents Poetics, Aesthetics & Rhetoric. Research shows that great poets have powerful Venus dominating their horoscopes. In the horoscopes of Tennyson, Byron, Aurobindo, Omar Khayam & Tagore, Venus was well positioned in the second house. Venus rules over three constellations of the Sidereal Zodiac, 41 Arietis ( Bharani ), Delta Leonis ( Pubba ) & Delta Sagittari (Poorvashada ).

An Analytical Review

The zodiac sign representing this planet is Libra ( Do not confuse this with the birth-sign in Astrology). Librans are basically down-to-earth practical people. Libra is an earthly sign and hence its mundane nature manifests itself as down to earth practicality.

Librans are generally all-rounders. All-round excellence in all fields is the characteristic of the Libran.

You will suffer from diseases of the stomach. Fasting on Fridays will pave the way for the cure of many ailments.

Your materialistic outlook on life will be detrimental as far as happiness is concerned. The best way out of this lack of fulfillment is to indulge in yogic practices.

Librans even though love the pleasures of the mundane have a penchant for poetry and philosophy. "A flask of wine, a book of verse and Thou singing with me in the wilderness " is their basic philosophy.

Negative Aspect

Venus is a mundane planet giving you all the pleasures of Life. Carnal gratification of the senses and momentary pleasures he will give you in plenty. The main spiritual aim of Life will be thwarted and blocked by Venus. His movement is against Moksha or Self-Actualization.

In Astro-Gemology, Venus represents Diamond. Wearing this stone on a Shukla Paksha Friday ( fifteen days after the New Moon ) will enhance the luck of the Sixians. The Sanskrit text, The Jataka Chandrika assigns Diamond to Venus.

Six main sciences and six auxiliary sciences constitute Indian Philosophy. Astrology, grammar, science of definition (Nirukta), Phonetics, Poetics & Rhetoric are the six subsidiary sciences. Yoga, Vedanta, Sankhya, Poorva Mimamsa, Vaisesika & Logic ( Nyaya ) are the six main sciences. In the Supra-mental Dialectic, the sixth principle is the all important Chit-Shakti ( the knowledge aspect of Being ).

Astro-Numerology & Religion

The Bible assigns 666 as the number of the Anti-Christ and 888 as the number of Christ. When we add 8 + 8 +8 , we get the Fadic Number 6, which is a Venusian number. The planet of Love , in other words, represents the prophet of Love, Jesus. Lord Krishna in the Geetha says " Among the poets, I am Venus " ("Kaveenam Usano Kavih").

You are ready to sacrifice your life for attaining the Promised Land of your chosen ideology. You push forth to your aim irrespective of the opinions of the world. You are only happy when your objective is realized.

Your main drawback is that you are too innocent and straight-forward which has its drawbacks particularly in business and politics.

Your noble outlook on life will definitely earn you progress in the field of Ethics and Morality. You may not be that prosperous in the material or the worldly sphere.

You are too emotional and writhe at the slightest adversity. Perseverance and patience should be incorporated.

In Vedic Astrology the South Node is the significator of Liberation. Along with Jupiter and Saturn , Ketu plays a promiment part in the native attaining to Self-Actualization. The South Node in the twelfth house is preferable from the perspective of Nirvana. Ketu rules over three constellations of the Sidereal Zodiac, Beta Arietis( Aswathi), Regulus ( Makha ) & Lamda Scorpii ( Moola ).

An Analytical Review

The zodiac sign representing this number is Scorpio. ( Do not confuse this with the birth sign in Astrology ) Scorpio is the sign of the Mystic - the Investigator. Psychic sciences attract them in no uncertain measure. They are always attracted to the mysteries of Nature.

Scorpians show tremendous resilience. They have the ability to bounce back after being at the receiving end. Their determination and tenacity make them winners in the long run.

You do not care for the opinions of others and go ahead with your peculiar outlook on life. As you are stubborn and show a bulldog spirit you are likely to have a lot of enemies. You will be subjected to struggle, strife and suffering as this constellation is fiery in nature and shows all the qualities of the lord of war Mars.

Scorpio is ruled by Mars. In classical Astrology Ketu resembles Mars and hence this constellation is Martian in nature. As you are a Martian all the fighting qualities of Mars will be predominant in you. Determination, bulldog spirit, leadership, generalship, willpower, resilience - these are the real Martian qualities. Patience , perseverance , indifference - all these qualities will be lacking in you.

Anger is another passion which will grip you at times.

Negative Aspect

Ketu is a planet which brings salvation through sorrow. In other words he makes you bear the cross. Enmity from one's own kith and kin and sorrow are the net results.

In Transcendental Philosophy the Number Seven is considered very sacred. The seventh state of Consciousness in Transcendental Meditation is the Unified state of Cosmic Consciousness or Unity Consciousness. The Beatitudes are Seven. The Seven Octaves of Music , the seven colours of the spectrum, the seven major planets, the seven days of the week - all these bear ample testimony to the significance attached to the number seven. In the Supra-mental Dialectic, Universal Being is sevenfold - viz, the Sevenfold Chord of Being being Life, Mind, Matter, Super mind, Being, Knowledge and Bliss.

Seven sciences constitute Dialectics - Ontology, Epistemology, Axiology, Aesthetics, Ethics, Logic and Politics. The seven liberal arts - Rhetoric, Music, Astronomy, Grammar, Logic, Arithmetic and Geometry - and the seven cardinal virtues - Justice, Temperance, Fortitude, Prudence, Knowledge, Wisdom & Understanding - adorn classical Philosophy. The seven reprehensible actions of Aristotelian Ethics - Lust, greed, Jealousy, anger, sloth, covetousness & attachment- have been classified by Dante as the Seven Deadly sins. The seventh principle in Transcendental Philosophy is Absolute Being ( Sat ) which is the source of all existence.

The seven states of Consciousness are called in Yoga as Sapta Bhoomika.

On the other hand Philosophy, Religious Fervor, One-pointedness of Mind, determination - all these are also represented by this number. They feel that they are different from the rest and therefore unique. They lack happiness. People always misunderstand them. They also fail to reap the good actions they have done in this life.

Capricornians are fatalists. They believe that everything is divinely ordained and all events have a purpose behind them. Amor fati ( Love of Fate ) is the core of their nature.

People under the influence of this constellation are great democrats and believe in the dignity of labour.

In a life marked by struggle and suffering the fortitude of the Capricornian is indeed surprising. Temperance is another virtue imparted by this constellation.

Negative Aspect

Saturn is the planet of suffering and he can make you carry the cross for a longish time. He will test your patience. He can create obstacles and hindrances and barriers to success.

Saturnine Influence on Jesus

Jesus was born with Virgo rising, Jupiter, Moon and Saturn in Pisces, indicating the Messiah willing to bear the Cross of Golgotha. His number was 888 which when added gives us 24 and 2+4 = 6, the number of Venus, the planet of Love. The prophet of Love was indeed the embodiment of the goddess of Love, Venus. Saturn, the signification of sorrow and liberation, along with Jupiter aroused in Him the desire to redeem the world through Universal Love. His suffering life & martyrdom all smacks of Saturnine influence. Other divine personalities - Tagore, Aurobindo & Vivekananda also had a profound Saturnine influence in their natal charts.

The Science of Life - Ayurveda

Ayurvedic Guidelines for Holistic Living

Ayurveda prescribes three major guidelines for Healthy Living. They are Dinacharya, Ritucharya & Brahmacharya


One should get up early in the morning at 04:30 AM , the time prescribed for Meditation. After brushing the teeth, one should take an oil bath.

Oil, preferably coconut oil, should be put all over the body and one should relax for 30-60 minutes for the oil to sink in. Oil Bath is known in Ayurveda as Abhyanga. Because of the oil bath, you will get proper sleep. The body becomes fresh. The body is fortified and becomes cool. Oil will take care of all the diseases of the scalp. It will prevent hair loss. The hair becomes blacker and more healthy.

After Abhyanga, one should do exercise. Exercise will increase the digestive capacity and obesity will be controlled. After doing exercise ( Yoga exercises are the best ), one should massage the body mildly. One should not do excess exercise. Excess exercise can result in weakness, thirst, fever and vomiting. Mild massage can destroy phlegm and reduce fat.

Taking oil bath daily increases the digestive fire. It will increase the sexual capacity. More energy and strength will be imparted by an oil bath. Physical weakness will disappear. One should pour only cold water over the head . Hot water bath is ideal for the rest of the body.


Western system of Astrology which follows the Tropical Zodiac identifies four major seasons - Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.

From March 21 we have the beginning of summer, after the Spring Equinox. From June 21 we have autumn, after the Summer Solstice. From Sept 22 we have Winter, after the Autumnal Equinox and after Dec 22, which is the pagan festival of Winter Solstice, we have Spring

The Indian system of Astrology which follows the Sidereal Zodiac identifies six major seasons known as Rithus. Two months constitute a Rithu. (Tau Dwau Rithu).

They are Sisira ( January & February), Vasantha ( March & April), Greeshma ( May & June ), Varsha ( July & August ), Sharath ( September & October ) & Hemantha ( November & December ).

The Three Humurs of Ayurveda are Wind ( Vata ), Bile ( Pitta ) & Phlegm ( Kapha ). Their equilibrium is Health and their disharmony is ill-health.

During Sharath Rithu, Pitta will be more.
During Hemanta Rithu, Kapha will be more.
During Greeshma, Vata will be more.
During Varsha, Vata will be more.

During the hot Greeshma Rithu, one should avoid hard labour which gives a tough time for the body. The ideal foods during Greeshma are Fruit juices, buttermilk, lime juice and these should be taken extensively. Can have cold water bath. Water Melon, plantains, bananas, cucumber, tomatoes, jackfruit and leafy vegetables can be taken in.

Uttarayana ( the Northern Progress of the Sun ) involve the six solar sidereal months from Capricorn to Cancer. During this phase, one should take abundant fruits like pomegranate, water melon, orange, grapes and tender coconut water. This phase is known as Adana Kala because much strength is lost from the body due to the hot season. Plantains and bananas should also be taken in. Rice, wheat, gooseberry ( which is a rich source of Vitamin C ), pineapple, mangoes, cashew, groundnut, carrot, pumpkin,honey, milk and leafy vegetables should also be consumed.

Dakshinayana ( the Southern Progress of the Sun ) involve the six solar sidereal months from Cancer to Capricorn. This phase is known as Visarga Kala , as this is a period which augments physical strength. Bittergourd, gooseberry, chilli, wheat, honey, rice and vegetables can be taken in during this period.


Brahmacharya means to roam in Brahman, the Absolute, to embrace none but Him. Lustre and virility are all dependent on the seventh Tissue Element, Semen. If there is a weaking of this tissue element, the body loses potency. Hence the need for preserving this vital Tissue Element through proper celibacy.

Havelock Ellis in his "Psychology of Sex " has demonstrated that preservation of semen can result in increased creativity, high MQ & high IQ. High Emotional Quotient and Spiritual Quotient are also the boons of Brahmacharya.

Semen consists of the triune properties of Heat ( Tejas ), Light ( Ojas) and Electricity ( Vidyut ). Sublimation of this vital fluid can result in increased longevity. It will fortify the Immune system and body can be saved from wrinkles. Intuition and the discriminative intellect will function more during celibacy. Hence controlled Brahmacharya is a must for Healthy Living.

Pathya - Diet Control

There is a popular saying in Ayurveda that there no cure for 2 types of people. People who observe Pathya ( Diet Control ) and people who do not follow Pathya ! If a man has hyperacidity and do not observe Pathya ( if he takes in spicy, hot foods, alcohol and beverages ), how can he be cured. even with a plethora of medicines ? If the same man follows Pathya ( he avoids spicy foods, alcohol & beverages ), he doesnt need medicines !

Diet Control is all in all

Even for disease chronic, Diet Control can cure Without Diet Control, useless is the highest Therapy ! Hence the need for Foods Vedic !

For every disease there is Pathya. The Ayurvedic Physician will say dont take such and such food. Foods that are to be avoided in general are spicy foods, alcohol, non veg like beef, eggs and fish, carbonated drinks and processed foods

Fruits and vegetables contain Carotenoids and Bioflavonoids which are cancer preventing or disease preventing. They contain fibres that are vital for the body. The popular notion that eggs are cheap and contain proteins and high calories is a flawed notion. 100 gms of egg contains 13.3 % protein and 137 calories. 100 gms of vegetables contain 25.1% protein and 334 calories !

Why avoid Non Vegetarian Food

Because of the high cholesterol content, non veg food is not okayed by Ayurveda. A 100 gms of Mackerel contains 95 mgs of cholesterol, haddock 65 mg, tuna 63 mg , halibut 50 mg, beef 70 mg, chicken 60 mg and pork 70 mg. And when the comparison is made based on calories, fish ( 50mg/100 calories) is much higher in cholesterol than pork (24mg/100 calories), beef ( 29 mg /100 calories ) or chicken ( 44 mg /100 calories ). Animal protein causes osteoporosis or bone loss. Fish contains neither fibre nor carbohydrate. A recent article in the New England Journal of Medicine warned that many fish contain high levels of Mercury, which may increase risk of a heart attack. There is evidence that fish fat ( Omega-3 fat ) will increase a person's risk of cancer and the risk of metastasis ( spread of cancer to other parts of the body ).

Naturopathy - The Prophylactic Aspect of Ayurveda

Naturopathy or Prakrithi Therapy is the Swastha Vritta ( Prophylactic Aspect ) of the Science of Life.

The Five Great Elements are the Five Doctors ( Annam Brahma ). Food is medicine and medicine is food. By food we mean Naturopathic food, the food that cometh from Nature. The Five Great Elements ( Pancha Maha Bhootas ) are prior to everything. Hence they are known as the Five Great Doctors ( Annam Hi Bhoothanam Jyeshtyam Thasmad Sarvoushadhamuchyathe ).

The Five Great Doctors can cure any disease. Exposure to Sunlight is Thejopasana. The body gets abundance of Vitamin D. Daily at least 10 minutes one should bathe in the Sun.

The Fivefold Worship of Naturopathy:

  • Thejopasana - Sun bathing. Sunlight is a rich source of Vitamin D
  • Akasopasana - Fasting, the best medicine. During fasting the digestive system gets rest and diseases like ulcer are cured by Fasting.
  • Jalopasana - Water is a universal medicine. At least 12 glasses of water should be taken in daily and exercises like swimming are excellent.
  • Vayopasana - Getting fresh air is a must.
  • Prithyopasana - Fruits and vegetables cometh from Nature and are rich in vitamins, minerals and proteins. They contain phytochemicals which are cancer or disease preventing.
