A simple & powerful way to Increase Immunity in the body and hormonal balance

When we hold the breath whilst Pranayamam, we recite ‘Om Bhu, Om Bhuvah, Om Suvah, Om Mahah, Om Janah, Om Tapah, Oogum Satyam” before proceeding to recite the Gayathri Mantra.  

I was blissfully unaware of the significance of reciting this, just as I was about the part of Achamanam where we recite the twelve names of Lord Vishnu and touching various parts of the upper body.  As you may have read in this post, Shri Raman had shared about the deep connection between these touch points and our health.

Similarly, when I read a publication of Sri Nrsimhapriya Trust titled ‘Rig Yajur Sama Veda Sandhyavandanam”, I came to know the reason for reciting this phrase.  (This book priced at Rs.35 can be purchased from the office of Sri Nrsimhapriya Trust located in Mylapore.  The contact number is 044-2461 1540)

The mantras as above denote the 7 Regions (Lokas) of the Universe through which the soul of a person passes through after death before attaining the God.  While that may appear meta-physical, there is yet another connect with our body as follows.

The 7 Chakras of the body that are activated during Pranayamam being Mooladhar, Swadisthan, Manipuraga, Anahat, Vishuda, Ajna and Sahasrar have a one to one relationship with each of the 7 Lokas as above as well as the 7 Endocrine Glands in our body

The table below will illustrate this relationship better

WORLD

CHAKRA

ENDOCRINE GLAND

Bhu

Mooladhar

Sex glands

Bhuvah

Swadhisthan

Pancreas

Suvah

Manipura

Adrenal

Mahaha

Anahata

Thymus

Janah

Vishuda

Thyroid

Tapah

Ajna

Pituitary

Satyam

Sahasrar

Pineal

From now on, I will be conscious of this connection while reciting the mantra during Pranayamam.  How about you?

More importantly, this inter-relationship therefore means that we are actually activating these glands and the ductless glands (Chakras) by reciting the names of these 7 Lokas whilst holding our breath during Pranayamam.  

Isn’t it amazing that we can bring about the hormonal balance in our body in such a simple yet powerful way?  And considering that we do Pranayamam a few times during SV, it is evident that our immune system becomes stronger every time we perform SV.  

What better reason do we now need to perform SV thrice every day?

With Prayers and a Deep Sense of Gratitude

    Excellent Badri. Your shares are enriching, providing valuable insights & inspiring a generation to take up Sandhaya Vandhanam. Most often in our quest to be scientific, we tend to become superficial and ignore the wisdom that’s been there all along. Thanks a lot, my friend
