Today we are going to celebrate the birthday of Mahavira.
Mahavira is the incarnation of Bhairavanath, or you call Him as Saint Michael. Now these two saints as you know one as the Gabriel, Hanumana, and another is Saint Michael. One is placed on the Pingala Nadi and another one, Saint Michael, on the Ida Nadi.
So, Mahavira had to go through lots of search. Of course He was a angel, but came as human being and He had to find out the thing of the left side, and how the left side acts. It’s a very complicated thing, left side, is much more complicated than right side. On the left side we have also seven nadis, and these seven nadis are placed one after another. They are described in books and given different names to them. Now, these seven nadis that are on the left side, as you know, they cater to our past. Say for example, every moment becomes a past. Every present becomes a past. Then we have past of this lifetime, and also we have past of our previous lives. Then all the past is built in within us since our creation.
So all the psychosomatic diseases, as you know, are only triggered by the entities that appear from the left side. For a person, supposing he is suffering, say, from liver trouble and suddenly he’s attacked from the left side, specially Mooladhara, or any left side, Left Nabhi, because Mooladhara is the only one that is connected with the left side, Ida Nadi, and the right side, Pingala Nadi, is connected with Swadisthana.
So the problems of Mooladhara are really beyond the reach of human beings, and when it is attacked, any one of these chakras on the left-hand side, then psychosomatic diseases occur into human beings….. And using the right side too much, goes up to a point and suddenly something happens on the left, triggers. So all diseases, say even diabetes, is due to the psychosomatic effect. A person who is very hard-working, thinks too much, very right-sided, suddenly something happens, maybe also he might inherit that diabetes because of the past, and it triggers and you get this psychosomatic problem. Now this psychosomatic problem is only cured if you know what’s the problem of the left side is. So Mahavira went quite deep on to the left side. Why I said it’s difficult the left side is, because when you start moving on the left side the movement becomes linear of course, but it moves downward, while the movement on the right side moves upward. So the movement goes down like that, and then it coils up, forms coils, and you go on moving with it so you are lost in the coil. But the other one moves upward and the coils are not so many, and because it is upward it’s easy to get out of it…
