Prof., Dr.(Ayu) Shivakumar at Udupi Clinic from 2001 already treated about 1200 -1500 ISKCON Devotees and many Maharajs, and share his experiences, pains and finally thoughts about needful preventive health aspects in ISKCON
For now, by carelessness and neglect-fullness we are developing unbalanced three pillars of healthy life stile:Eating – Sleeping – Working
Same point stress Krishna to us in BG “There is no possibility of one's becoming a yogī, O Arjuna, if one eats too much or eats too little, sleeps too much or does not sleep enough. He who is regulated in his habits of eating, sleeping, recreation and work can mitigate all material pains by practicing the yoga system.” BG 6.16-17
lack of water;
regularly overeating; eating at wrong time; fast, passionate eating;
following wrong, whimsical diet without counting individual unique nature - vata, pita, kapha; unhealthy eating snacks between general meals etc.
time by time unhealthy, unnecessary fasting;
lack of night sleep in general;
lack of health night sleep;
unhealthy and unnecessary day sleep;
unhealthy over work in mental and physical aspects
lack of regular daily exercises – at least daily 30-40 min of yoga, pranayama, exercises;
time by time wrong, whimsical over exercises or far too much physical activities;
lack of sun bath and fresh ear etc.
Dr. Shivakumar cry, when He again and again and again receiving for treatment young Krishna’s Devotees practically laying down on stretures to there weakness
That is due to our present Eating – Sleeping – Working habits
In BG 15.14. Krishna sad: “I am the fire of digestion in the bodies of all living entities, and I join with the air of life, outgoing and incoming, to digest the four kinds of foodstuff.” By our unhealthy life style fire of digestion go weak, we voluntary reject, push away Krishna from our stomach, from our consciousness, from our life.
And by consequences of weak fire of digestion, our body starts accumulate toxins or ama; then immune system go weak; then sterns go weak; then we get over or under weight etc.
We voluntary start new disorders, then diseases
And make worse existing four types of disorders and diseases:
Spiritual - “I am Ishvara, I am God, I do what I want in a way, how I like!”
Loosing ability wisely and healthy use our three subtle senses, namely mind, intelligence and ego
In our health care habits, and later in many others areas of our life we doubt, “we do not know what is to be done and what is not to be done. Neither cleanliness nor proper behavior nor truth is found in us.” BG 16.7
By indulging in sense gratification we loosing ability use five perceptive senses of hearing, touch, sight, taste and smell which are owned and given by Krishna for Devotional services and no meant for our senses gratification
By misusing our spiritual, mental and sensual ability, we misuse Krishna’s five senses of action, namely hands, legs, speech, evacuation organs and reproductive organs, with Krishna kindly give to as in our care forDevotional services
Mental disorders and diseases: inattentiveness, carelessness, negligence, forgetfulness (loss of memory); harshness, irritability; depression, anxiety; thought and tendency about spiritual and physical suicide etc.
Sensual disorders and diseases: all kind off loosing ability to hearing, touch, sight, taste and smell
low immunity; cholesterol disorders, hypertension (blood pressure), heart attack; arthritis (endless joint pain); fatigue syndrome (endless weakness); migraine (endless headache), all kind of skin diseases, acidity (APD), early hair fall (greying); piles (fissure); constipation, obesity (overweight), diabetes mellitus; Asthma (cough recurrent), tuberculosis; stones: urine, kidney etc.
These are just few physical disorders diseases, which are common for our Bramacharies ashram and congregation Devotees, witch generally starts simply from our Eating – Sleeping – Working too much or too little, without proper preventive health consciousness, which is so important in our Sadhana Bhakti stage to Please Guru, to Please Krishna
Throughout PREMA BHAKTI activities we wish to give experience of real Love and hope in KRISHNA PREMA to all Devotees, who are worried, feeling neglected, rejected etc.
