“Veda of the Body” – Epilogue

“…Just as man arose from the bird and the beast, this greater being awaits his hour. Hidden under our bones and skin and hidden to the limited range of our sight, there lie unseen tracts of Nature waiting to unfold through a moulding of our bodies by the Breath and Fire of the Soul, the Stress of the hidden Spirit in Nature. That which we experience in our ignorance as stress is the call of the secret spirit within us, the evolutionary leap out of our mortal condition into a state of conscious immortality”

10. Towards the Future – The Evolutionary Transformation of the Body

“A perfectly healthy body as we envisage it now is a body fit, open and receptive to higher forces […] The stress of survival is born because of a sense of separateness. Each organism therefore tries to overpower or ‘outsmart’ others in the competitive game of life, but sooner or later succumbs as it must, since no individual form of life can be greater than the whole. But the individual can rediscover its link with the whole and thus arrive at a new mode of mastery. “

9.3 An Integral Model of Health – Social Health and Man Management

“All illness is essentially an outer reflection of an inner disequilibrium. The contact with the outer world can be the catalytic agent inducing an inner disequilibrium. […] we need to learn to listen to the ‘still small voice’ that gently guides us from the silent depths of our heart. It is through this deeper truth that we have to learn to relate our self with the world.”

9.2 An Integral Model of Health – Physical and Psychological Self-Culture

“To discover health one has to discover its source. Opening of the mind and body and life to the psychic influence is the most important key to an ascending state of perfection that would eventually lead man beyond the frontiers of our present possibilities to a complete freedom and a total immunity from all illnesses, accidents, poisoning and eventually even death.”

9.1 A Programme for Health – Health Management

“The body has a consciousness of its own — the body consciousness. We have to awaken this latent body consciousness because, despite the body’s capacity, something limits and hinders and things go wrong. Here arises the need for preparing the body and opening it to higher energies. ”

8. Healing Communications (Part 2)

“What would be the system and method of the healer? Well, he may use the system with which he is quite naturally familiar and conversant. But he should have a wide inner flexibility and plasticity in the application of the system, […] an absolute trust in the healing power of Grace and the humility to depend upon Its power and wait patiently upon Its wisdom.”

8. Healing Communications (Part 1)

“We have become a prisoner of our own achievements, a slave of our material perfection, a materially rich and powerful humanity that is spiritually impoverished and weak, the art of life remains vague and obscure, its mystery and wonder, its charm and sweetness lost amidst the noise and din of a senseless crowd. Yet man is capable of and must achieve the double perfection that life seeks in him — an outer perfection of his external life and its instruments and an inner perfection of his soul and inner being.”

7.6 The Healer Within (Part 2)

“It is the transforming touch of the Supramental force that can finally make human nature immune to every form of illness and accident. It is not enough to cure the maladies of man; what is necessary is to cure the malady called man…. Human nature is incapable of this alchemy on its own. But what is impossible to man is perfectly possible for Grace.”

7.6 The Healer Within (Part 1)

“… in the heart, in the silent depths beyond thoughts and emotions and desires, in the cave of God there dwells our secret soul. One of the methods of contacting is given below. There are others and one may choose according to one’s temperament. But whatever the method chosen, one must be armed with patience and sincerity. This is the most radical of all efforts, with results and effects that would last beyond a lifetime and for all future lives to come.”

7.5 The Elusive Magic Potion

“God moves simultaneously along many paths and on all paths. He draws the human soul through countless ways, even ways that the human mind does not recognize since they are so drastically different to what we traditionally call as ‘the path’. He enjoys the differences since it is through multiplicity that we find His Infinity best expressed. For in the last analysis it is not our journey but in each one it is the journey of the Eternal One.”

7.4 Re-establishing Health (Part 2)

“The forces within the individual that help in re-establishing the lost harmony are faith, will and peace. Along with these and as an aid come sincerity, purity, perseverance, strength, and receptivity of the body and mind to the positive forces. A third aspect is to remove the hurdles of negative energies that stand in the way of healing at each respective plane. Finally, and above all, it is the supreme mystery of Grace that cures. Let us now turn to these one by one.”

7.4 Re-establishing Health (Part 1)

“… man threatens his own existence as a race. The comfortable cure, the handy pill, all of them make our physical consciousness a little more obscure, inert, dull and less responsive, even though they may alter appearances. Thanks to these wonderful remedies that save our bodies, we are losing faith in our own powers to heal and recover. The challenge of life is lost, the stress to adapt and thereby evolve through assimilation and harmony is taken away; what is left is a static humanity, perfectly secure but perfectly helpless…”

7.3 Of Systems and Beyond Systems

“…modern medicine reflects a certain self-view of man and as an extension his worldview. In contrast, most traditional methods reflect another kind of self-view and worldview. This divide is clearly seen in the road map of development of the two modes of approaching the human problems of illness, suffering, death and pain.”

7.2 Manipulating Human Nature

“Illness like suffering holds out before our sight the points that need to be shaped and reshaped under the transforming action of Grace. The final remedy also lies in this — to respond whole-heartedly to the pressure of transformation and to consent willingly in all our parts to the action of Grace.”
