Simple recommendations of Maharishi Ayur-Veda health care—such as practice of the Transcendental Meditation Programme—act as mental rasayanas to support both health and happiness.
Vaidya Vyas, an expert Maharishi Ayur-Veda physician from India, recently discussed mental rasayanas in terms of the flow of nourishment and happiness in the physiology. Rasayanas promote health and longevity, and are considered the primary method for maintaining health and vigor.
He explained that the basic meaning of rasa is flow. It also refers to other flowing qualities such as taste, emotions, and the clear liquid portion of the blood, plasma.
Plasma carries both nourishment and happiness to all tissues and to the whole body, he said, emphasizing the importance of the flow of both of these elements in the body.
Emotions flow in this rasa like a river nourishing the body. This river carries not only nutrients but also various hormones, neuropeptides, and neurohormones, which make sure the whole physiology functions in perfect harmony to uphold health and happiness.
If the rasa is not fully nourished it results in stress-related disorders; but fully nourished rasa upholds bliss.
Twice-daily practice of the Transcendental Meditation Programme, uplifting experiences such as beautiful sights, aromas of essential oils, and Gandharva Veda music help support happiness, balance, and bliss, Vaidya Vyas said. A lighter, more simple diet one day per week may also contribute to greater health and happiness because it allows the body to digest impurities.
