Many western doctors learning Ayurveda intimately with the Raju family as well as colleagues and becoming experts in Ayurveda. 

Aim of Ayurveda:

  1. Maintain health in the healthy individuals (prevention). - Prevention is a priority.
  2. Treat those with diseases or imbalance.

Qualities of a Physician

  1. Daksha - Able, eligible, disciplened. 
  2. Shastras - all sastras needs to be learned. Having detailed knowledge about diseases and treatments.
  3. Drsta Karma - practical experience of treatments. Practically seeing (drsta) the action.
  4. Suchi - Cleanliness. Actually means purity - kaya (physical cleanliness), vacha (pure speech). Have to feel the patient as your child. Have to see the God in the patient.

Approaching Treatment with Innocence and Purity

You don’t say, “now I know this.” Your master or guru will say, “okay, now you can practice.”
~ Dr. Harsha Vardhan Raju

When we try to judge ourselves, ego will come in. 

This provides the practitioner to be able to effortlessly. Nature supports and moves through you. You are a person healing through nature.

The more you become simplified and humble, the greater achievements you can do.

More and more practice enables one to grasp the Siddhi (capability).

Vaidya has the siddhi (capability) of his words - whatever he says will come true. This siddhi has come due to all the chanting done.

Four Pillars of Treatment

  1. Bhishak (Vaidya)
  2. Dravya (substance/matter/herbs)
  3. Upastata (Technician/assistnat)
  4. Rogi (Patient)

Qualities of a Patient For Maximum Results

  1. Adya - Have certain wealth for required resources for treatment.
  2. Bhishagvashya - Complete surrender to the Vaidya. 
  3. Jnapakaha - Good memory - to take the medicine and follow protocol and do what the attendant says.
  4. Satvavaanapi - Have courage and positive approach. Sattva. Have hope for removing the disease. Have patience. If patience is not there, there will be stress.

The importance of not asking the Vaidya, "How long with this disease be there?"

Healthy Skepticism

Required for western medicine to not fall a victim to inappropriate medical care, but better surrender the analytical mind when being treated in Ayurveda.

The Definition of Perfect Health:

Sama Dosha (Healthy Doshas)

Sama Agni-shcha (Healthy Agni)

Sama Dhatu (Health Tissues)

Mala Kriyaha (Proper elimination of wastes)

Prasan Atma Indriya Manaha (Blissful Soul, Senses & Mind)

Swastya (heathy person) Ityabi Di-Yete (This is the thing)

~Susruta Samhita

How enjoyable treatments are when in prevention mode

Rather then thinking about a disease over and over and how to fix it.

Pulse Diagnosis: Ayurveda’s Most Profound Diagnostic Tool

Pulse diagnosis in Ayurveda

Pulse diagnosis, a healing art and science, is a most refined, accurate and comprehensive diagnostic tool employed in Ayurveda to figure out where any imbalance exists in the body, and what the nature of the imbalance is.

In Ayurveda there are 8 diagnostic or examination methods (Ashta Sthana Pariksha):

  1. Nadi Pariksha (Pulse Examination)
  2. Mutra Pariksha (Examination of Urine)
  3. Mala Pariksha (Stool Examination)
  4. Jihwa Pariksha (Tongue Examination)
  5. Shabda Pariksha (Voice Examination)
  6. Sparsha Pariksha (Touch Examination)
  7. Drik Pariksha (Eye Examination)
  8. Akrti Pariksha (Physical Appearance Examination)

Pulse Is Superior

Pulse is #1 because, through the channel (nadi) of the radial pulse, a physician (who has the knowledge and capability) can simply and quickly gain an insight into what is going on in the body and mind on a level deeper than any other examination method.

The pulse can access the deepest and subtlest aspects in the body and mind, including fathomless root causes of disease. It intervenes very early in the disease process, whereas other examination methods are more delayed.

For example, urine and faeces examination are the next two methods after pulse which provide the deepest insights. They are high up the list for detecting disease early because they are the first wastes of the body.

With the pulse however, you don’t need to wait for the waste product to come. You can tap into the earlier four stages of disease before symptoms or waste products manifest.

This is not only useful for prevention but also is valuable for those with niggling health issues or that are poorly responding to treatments.

This, of course, is only possible by a pulse physician who holds mastery in this area. Other physicians may have more experience or mastery with other diagnostic methods and don’t utilise the pulse at all.

Vast Holistic Knowledge

They say it takes within 2-4 minutes for the blood to circulate to every cell all over the body.
The pulse gives information on what is happening physically.

Your pulse is your heart and your heart is your feelings. When the heart beats, it gives information about the emotional blocks, traumas as well areas in life where people thrive.

The heart is the faculty of thought, actions and desires. It is closely connected to one’s mental state.

The heart is the source of Ojas - the physical expression of consciousness. It connects us to the Absolute infinite source of Being that underlies everything. This is why the heart is known as the ”spiritual organ” in many traditions. When you take your pulse you are taking information about the physical connection between your blood and the underlying consciousness state.

Pulse as Therapy

”After completing the Nadi pariksha, if the physician washes his hands, diseases disappears from the patient like mud washes away from cleaning with water.”
Yogaratnakara, vol. 1 verse 43.

When you connect your body with the underlying state of Pure Consciousness (where perfect health is) through pulse, it heals the physiology. There is even a highly advanced therapy called “Vedic Vibration Pulse Therapy” which my teachers father, Father B.A. Raju was a well known master in.

The Subtle Power of Touch: Sparsha

The epidermis (superficial layer of skin) is closely connected to the nervous system. It contains epidermal keratinocytes (skin cells) that are highly specialised epithelial cells designed to precisely interact with the environment. These cells can feel all the senses. They enable the skin to feel fragrance, light and sound. Similarly, a tail of sperm goes crazy and moves towards a flower.

Continuous practice of pulse promotes one to develop super subtle sensory perception, which essentially enhances ones overall approach to healing, whether it be on yourself (self-pulse) or communicating with a patient and treating a patient (pulse is the pre-requisite to learning marma therapy and special massages as it superbly refines the sense of touch).

“Sparsha (The sense of touch) alone pervades all the senses. It is permanently associated with the mind.”
Caraka Samhita, S.S. Ch. 11,(38).

There Are Many Methods of Pulse Diagnosis

Pulse diagnosis has not only been utilised in India, but also China, Persia, Greece, Egypt and various medical traditions all over the world.

Furthermore, within Ayurveda there are many different methods of carrying out a pulse diagnosis.

The good news is, the Pulse Diagnosis method I utilise and teach, which my teachers teach, and which their disciples* across the world teach, is one of the easiest and mosteffective methods out there which is objective and logical.

Why the Radial Pulse

There are many pulses in the body in addition to the radial pulse (wrist) such as the neck (carotid artery), groin (femoral artery), behind the knee (popliteal artery), near the ankle joint (posterior tibial artery) and on the foot (dorsalis pedis artery).

Why do we use the radial pulse and not the heart? If you put your ear on the speaker, sound isn't good. Better get some distance. Furthermore, the radial pulse is known as “kuma nadi” - the artery giving knowledge.

Sustainable Form of Diagnosis

Blood tests, urine samples, x-rays, MRIs, etc. are polluting the earth and use a lot of energy. Pulse you don't even need electricity. In Ayurveda we use Pulse Diagnosis because it is correlated with natural law and therefore we avoid putting any poison in the environment; it’s more than biodegradable.
