🙏🌹Goddess Lakshmi and Nandi at our clinic.🌹🙏

Each Hindu god has their own vahana (vehicle or wagon). Nandi (the bull) is the Vahana of Lord Shiva. Nandi signifies strength, load bearing capacity and virility. Nandi is the protector of Dharma. 🐂🐂🐂
There is a South Indian tradition of talking one’s wish to Nandi’s ears that is then believed to be granted. Symbolically, Nandi represents strength, faith and consistency in belief. You are welcome to whisper your wish into Nandis ear when visiting the clinic.

With love from Lakshmi Ayurveda

We talked about the creeper Mandukaparni/ Gotu kola a few days back, lets look at Brahmi/ bacopa monnieri today 🙂

The Sanskrit word Brahmi is derived from ‘brahma’ the creator of the universe.

Mandukaparni/ Centella asiatica is different from Brahmi. It can be confusing as in some parts of India the name Brahmi applies to Mandukaparni.
Bacopa monieri is considered as the true Brahmi.

Ayurvedic properties are:
Rasa: tikta and kashaya
Guna: laghu (light) and sara(laxative)
Virya: sheeta
Vipaka: madhura

🌿🌿All about Mandukaparni/ Gotu kola/ Centella asiatica🌿🌿

Do you know anyone suffering from dementia, alzheimers, depression, stress or anxiety? If yes, this plant might be very beneficial (best used after consulting your Ayurvedic practitioner and self prescription is not advised).

This herb gets often confused with Brahmi (bacopa monnieri). Its synonyms are brahmi, brahma, manduki and sarasvati.

Brahmi and Mandukaparni are different plants!

Today we are looking at the creeper called Mandukaparni. the Sanskrit name Mandukaparni refers to the leaves which resemble the webbed feet of a frog. The leaf looks like the cerebellum and is one of the ‘doctrine of signatures’ as Gotu kola is traditionally renowned for its intellect promoting properties.

This is a continuity from our Facebook post from last week about Dhatus/ body tissues the Saptadhatus.

Dhatu is that which supports the sarira (body), manas (mind), and prana (life).

Dhatus exist in two forms sthayi dhatu (well formed dhatus which supports the body) and asthayi dhatus which are seen to support the former by nourishing, sustaining and maintaining them.

There are three laws of Dhatu nourishment
1.Ksheera dadhi nyaya – law of complete transformation
2.Kedara kulya nyaya – law of field irrigation
3.Khale kapota nyaya – law of heap of grains and pigeons.
