I am in total awe
With the beautiful definitions and deep philosophy of our eyes as mentioned in Upanishad (books of philosophy and knowledge).
It goes something like this:
2 eyes are perceived as Vishwamitra and Jamadagni, the god and goddess;
2 eyes are also constructed and featured as reflections of Shukla (white), Neela (blue) and Krishna (black). The space between shukla and krishna is called Anthariksha.
Eyes or vision in general, are considered as main important sense organs for human beings. .
Eyes are part of Shalakya Tantra, a branch in Ayurveda dealing with management of diseases from the neck and above.
Here is a demonstration of Pindi, a warm/heat treatment (swedan) of eye infection or inflammation using a paste of turmeric (haldi) and holy basil (tulsi) dipped in warm water.
A very gentle approach to inflamed eyes by not giving immediate medication, but by procedure to get rid of the toxic cause of inflammation (aama). #pindi #netrachikitsa #eyeinfection #sreedhareeyam #ayurvediceyehospital #koothattukulam #southindia #indiansummer2017 #healingjourney #ayurvedicjourney
