Mahavira's Scripture Of Health ► 00 ► [00.02] From The Editor

Posted: 08.03.2007
  • The most significant question of life
    How to keep the healthy body
    Healthy thoughts, healthy mind
    Solve the intricate problem of health
    Have health as companion
    For all times.

 

  • Maharshi Caraka's awakening call
    Gives one message to all
    Healthy is he
    Who eats what is good
    Eats but little
    Eats what is ordained
    By law divine
    This is the language of health
    Definition which has
    Body as the centre.

 

  • Mahavira's philosophy of health
    Provides thinking that is new
    Definition of health centred round the soul
    Awakens a new curiosity
    Healthy is he
    And is contained in himself
    Whose endeavour is pure
    And pure the working of the mind
    Which is the receptacle
    Of pure emotions
    Who leshya and ahhavalaya
    Are also as pure.

 

  • This is the grand secret of health
    Life on its own becomes
    As what is ordained
    Purity of the soul is enhanced
    And the purity of endeavour
    And emotions
    Of abhamandal and leshya
    Attainment of happy
    And tranquil mind
    Elimination of disease
    Likely to invade the body
    On-set of health in all respects.

 

  • Presented here with
    Mahaprajna's original creation
    May we find through yoga
    A healthy life
    New concepts
    To treat diseases
    New systems, alternatives new
    Emotional therapy
    And therapy through abhamandal
    Therapy through abhamandal
    Therapy through colours
    And through smell
    Through taste and touch
    Through sound and thought
    If research and investigation
    Are well carried on
    And experiments intensified
    And training too
    These thoughts
    Of spiritual master
    Will open new doors
    For treating diseases.

 

  • The basic formulae
    Laid down in Agamas
    Mahaprajna's intrinsic
    Interpretation
    Ancient context, language modern
    Unprecedented examination
    Of problem of health
    Let as read
    MAHAVIRA 'S SCRIPTURE OF HEALTH
    It would purify life
    And body as well
    Would change the way of thought
    And develop outlook new,
    Would suggest alternative medicine
    And lead to resolve to
    Practice Dhyana-yoga
    And Preksha-Anupreksha
    Would be a prelude
    To new beginning of life
    New assurance
    New faith New aspiration
    Beyond the limits
    Of Body and mind
    The vision of
    Consciousness of health
    Would be able to open
    New horizons in life
