Haritaki- Essential  benefits to the yogic path?

Yoga has some popular benefits to the West,

  • Increasing flexibility of the physical body
  • Reducing aging process
  • Increasing awareness
  • Reaching higher consciousness

The Indian herb, Haritaki has huge benefits for yoga and is deeply embedded into the yoga tradition throughout India, Nepal and Tibet.

For thousands of years yogis have been taking Haritaki daily to help their yogic path. It is so well known in many circles as essential to the yogic path. In delving into the history of yoga, and yogic practices we find that Haritaki is considered the “King of Herbs”

The yogi has a number of practices for reaching the ultimate realization, also referred to as moksha, Samadhi, or Nirvana. The daily practices can include the following:

  • Asana practice
  • Chanting bhajans
  • Breathing practices
  • Cleanliness practices:
    • Tongue scraping
    • Oil pulling
    • Neti pot washing of the nasal passages
    • Enemas for cleansing the intestinal tract

When we look closely at the cleansing practices, we see that they are all designed to create a clear and clean intestinal flow; from the mouth, through the stomach and into the intestines. Why this emphasis on the internal cleanliness? It turns out that Yogis knew about the effects of clogged and unhealthy internal systems long before modern medicine discovered it.

Yoga, Haritaki and the second brain

Only now are researchers discovering what some are calling the “Second brain.” The importance of these internal organs is becoming more apparent. The second brain when functioning well allows the flow of nutrients,  and oxygen flow, through the whole body.

In the Hatha yoga practice we twist and turn all the organs in the lower abdomen, releasing stagnant energy and creating a flow of strength and flexibility into that region. In fact, there is well documented evidence of yoga helping irritable bowel syndrome, (IBS).

Here are some quotes about that.

There are specific yoga poses and also full sequences of postures for relieving and preventing all IBS symptoms, as well as other digestive problems. Try any of the choices below to help stablize your GI tract and start feeling better immediately.

Whether the culprit is a big meal, rich food, or something more serious like IBD, bloating and indigestion never feel good. “I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in my early 20’s,” says Govind Das, Kirtan musician and owner of Bhakti Yoga Shala in Santa Monica. “After months of crippling sickness and spending eight days in the hospital receiving blood transfusions, I was told I would be on medication to control my Inflammatory Bowel Disease for the rest of my life. But when I took a friend’s suggestion and attended my first yoga class, I knew I had found my path. ThroughBhakti Yoga, asana, and Ayurveda, I’ve been completely medication-free for 11+ years.”

With a combination of deep breathing, stretches that target abdominal organs, and twists that massage and wring out stuck intestinal toxins, this sequence relieves a wide range of digestive discomfort (think: gas, bloating, constipation). And the best part? With better digestion comes more energy.

The cleanliness is obviously compromised if the internal organs are clogged and there is constipation. Digested food can remain  rotting in the internal organs for days. This is where the importance of Haritaki comes in. Haritaki is a cleanser. On the skin it reduces skin ailments. In the mouth it heals sores and ulcers. In the intestinal system it keeps the whole system clear and functioning to high capacity.

Ultimately the greatest benefit of Haritaki to the yogi is the effect on higher consciousness and enlightenment

In the yogic system the whole purpose of yoga is unity, liberation, moksha, enlightenment, oneness, fulfillment. Yogic monasteries in India have been taking daily Haritaki as a spiritual practice for several thousand years. It is now well recognized that it aids in the expression of super powers such as third eye reading. It aids in the development of the brain and especially the third eye awakening. The most modern expression of these yogic powers is taking place in Bangalore India, where there are over 1,000 children who use Haritaki who are demonstrating yogic powers such as third eye reading.

When taking Haritaki for yogic powers the recommended amount to be taken is  ¼ to ½ a teaspoon every evening before bed. This allows the Haritaki to work through the whole digestive system, which is then cleansed with the first bowel movement in the morning.

There are a number of types of Haritaki available for consumption. We recommend organic or wildcrafted Haritaki. For yogis who appreciate the importance of cosmic blessings, chanting, puja and vedic ritual, Haritaki Plus – Yogic Super Brain Food offers an important differentiation. This Haritaki It is blessed daily to awaken higher consciousness in the users, through Yogic and Vedic rituals and chanting.

If you are a sincere yogi, looking to take your consciousness to full expression we recommend you take Haritaki Plus-Yogic Super Brain Food, daily.

Haritaki benefits Video for Haritaki Plus-Yogic Super Brain Food

This new video describes the history and benefits of Haritaki Plus.

Over the last months I have been investigating and researching about Haritaki. What I found out, through the study of historical Buddhism and Hinduism, has been particularly exciting to me. In this post and video I share the benefits and discoveries.

I don’t know if you know, but in India the Hindu religion has been in existence for over 10,000 years. The early tradition is called the Vedic Tradition. In this tradition, there is a medical and healing system called Ayurveda. The Ayurveda system is based on healing the mind/body/spirit, with the goal of leading to higher consciousness and enlightenment. In Ayurveda, the most important herb is Haritaki. It is known as “The King of Herbs” and is recommended as a cure-all for every illness.

Now we have to ask, why would this be a cure-all for all illnesses? It is because Haritaki cleans the whole internal energetic system, which in turns effects every part of the body, including the brain.  The most noticeable effect of Haritaki is in the intestines, which begin to function at optimal levels. This area of the body is known in many natural medicine circles as the Second Brain. In fact the stomach and intestines are a very large sensing area . The blood flowing from the intestines goes to every part of the body carrying either high quality blood or low quality blood. When the system is clear, the full nutritional value of the blood is delivered to the body at maximum level.

Tibetan Buddhism recognized this benefit of Haritaki. In doing research I’ve found that, for all sorts of ailments, medicines in Tibet contained Haritaki as a basic ingredient.  Haritaki’s usefulness, then and now, continues to be impressive.

2 Best books on Haritaki

The best books on Haritaki that I have found to date!

In my research on Haritaki I am finding some great resources. I want to share with you the best books on Haritaki that I have found so far, and will add to this list as I discover more.

1. Myrobalan :The Elixir of life in the hands of the Medicine Buddha.

This book, written by the German author Udo Stanglmeier is a very detailed and well researched insight into the history of the use of Haritaki through the Buddhist lineage, especially the connection between the Medicine Buddha and Haritaki. His material also looks at the ancient documentation about Haritaki in India, China and South East Asia. He shows the interlinking of the myths and teachings from tradition to tradition, and identifies the underlying themes that are present through all.

Stanglmeier begins  the book with  the myths relating to the Amrita or Nectar of the gods that are found in Vedic literature from the Hindu tradition, and similar stories from Buddhism.

The book then goes into great depth about the Buddhist use of Haritaki and its mythological properties. He points out that in Tibet Haritaki was used in almost all medicines as one of the components. Because of the remoteness and lack of trees in Tibet the usual ways herbal medicines were made and administered was in large pill form. Haritaki is not common in Tibet and so the Haritaki powder would be transported from India into Tibet for use in the pills.

Stanglmeier explains in the book the importance Haritaki in the modern context. He points out that more scientists are discovering that there is a deeper importance to the use of many of the traditional herbs. He explains that the ancient seers noticed many more benefits than the modern scientific approach reveals.

Amongst the Best books on Haritaki, this ancient text, which it is believed was created 800 years before Christ, is one of the core Ayurveda texts.It has 12 chapters that deal with the preparation of medicines for healing.

He says about Haritaki “There are two kinds of medicine, one which strengthens and one which combats disease. Amondt the types that strenthen, Haritaki takes pre-eminence.

Haritaki Plus, the Ayurvedic Yoga Super Brain Food

Haritaki Plus, Terminalia chebula, is a yogic super food known for it mystical properties
Haritaki, Terminalia chebula, is a yogic super food known for it mystical properties. This is the source of Haritaki Plus

Haritaki has been known as a Yogic Super food for thousands of years.

Haritaki is the name for a tree and also a fruit that comes from this large deciduous tree that grows in India, Nepal and throughout south east Asia. When the fruit of the tree is dried and ground it becomes Haritaki powder.

Ayurveda is the study of health from the Vedic Indian perspective. This Indian science envisions the body, mind, spirit, system as a whole. Ayurveda and Yoga combine to create overall health, high consciousness and longevity.

Even though for centuries Haritaki  was renowned as the “King of Herbs” in this system, and the only herb in the Ayurvedic health directory of thousands of herbs to “Increase Spiritual Awareness” its use for that purpose has fallen into disuse until  the last few years.

The revival of Haritaki for its true and more profound benefits has been spurred by the incredible results that are emerging from India from its use. Thousands of adults and young people who consume Haritaki daily  are displaying remarkable third eye awakening abilities and demonstrating these powers through reading while blindfolded.

Enlightened master Paramahamsa Nithyananda, the Head of the oldest Hindu organisation in the world is leading these results by blessing all those who wish to experience third eye awakening. He has recommended  the daily consumption of Haritaki to millions of people and instituted its consumption at his Ashrams and schools in India, and around the world.

On this site we share information about these developments, and provide detailed history, medical research and scientific information as well as the most esoteric information available as we come across it. Please return regularly.

Haritaki Plus contains all the ingredients of regular Haritaki and also the mystical and spiritual power of blessings.   Haritaki Plus -Yogic Super Brain Food is included in Vedic rituals of blessing every day. These blessings instill healing energy into all aspects of the Haritaki Plus -Yogic Super Brain Food. As Haritaki is known as a super food in Ayurveda, so we are discovering the extent to which this food affects the brain.

The best experiment to see the effects of Haritaki Plus on the brain appears to be a simple intelligence test.

  • Eat normal food, or if you are inclined, food that we generally consider unhealthy, so called junk food. Do this in the evening.
  • Next morning on waking, take a simple IQ test such as those found at brain evaluation
  • The following day take Haritaki Plus in the evening before bed.
  • In the morning take the same type of IQ test.

There is some limited data on the IQ of children taking Haritaki in India while studying at the Nithyananda Gurukul. The results from this small sample size of about 30 children indicates that they are studying on average 3-5 grades beyond their age.

Other benefits of the connection between Haritaki Plus and third eye awakening that been observed are:

  1. Many adults report that their intuitive abilities have dramatically improved. These include
    1. Sensing into the future.
    2. Sensing into the past for the purpose of realization about a habit that does not serve any more.
    3. Knowing when a person is coming to the front door.
    4. Knowing who is going to call on the phone
  2. Eyesight has been reported to improve as the third eye becomes activated. One person reports seeing perfectly well without glasses after participating in third eye exercises.
  3. The ability to sense direction has been reported. In one case the child was able to lead adults to their destination in a town that was completely new to the child. The child had looked at a map, and it appears that this map activated some aspect of memory in the brain.
  4. Body scanning. A number of children are reported as being able to scan a body for illness and identify health conditions.
  5. Manifestation. As the third eye is awakened many people report having spontaneous manifestation experiences. These include:
    1. Money miracles. There are now thousands of reports of money miracles
    2. Health miracles. There is an extensive list of reports of health miracles.
    3. Desires manifesting. Simple desires such as the desire for a pin for a dress. Suddenly there is a pin available in the table which did not appear to be there previously.
