Fresh news from Russia
According to the information I have received, ayurveda has gained official status in the Russian state. The exact degree of “stateization” I did not tell, because in Russia the whole bureaucratic structure is so different than in Finland. Conqueror Kalevi Lehtonen knows the most.
Introduction: learning it can be compared to going to school – digestion and ama !
There are easy basic things and then difficult “high school” things. It is ideal to learn things in a certain order, just like in school. First graders first learn to read and count. The sixth grade is already practicing equations, the mere existence of which would be quite a mystery and a wonder to the first grade. And then high school is facing integration and logarithmic equations. Maharishi Ayurveda is my learning system. It is “tailored” to the needs of Western “hurricanes”. In my training, first-graders were told to first remove ama, that is, to eliminate the undigested and into bloodsteam absorbed poisonous food remains out from body. (as told by my educator Medical Doctor Nancy Lonsdorf, USA.). Lonsdorf is one of the world top ama specialist
Of course, the strongest ones, meaning 20% of beginners
can go straight to the upper grades if they have very good digestion . REMOVING ama IS EASY AND THEREFORE FITS EVERYONE. There is no need for an Indian lifestyle to remove ama . In fact, for an Ayurvedic school student, the Indian lifestyle is only about a high school issue. Practice shows that the word India alone expels 30% of potential customers and the word “Indian way of life” drives the other 30%. A word pair is an abomination to a first-rate student, as is a logarithmic abomination to a beginner. Generally speaking, nobody wants to change their lifestyle. Everybody just wants those benefits. This is how ayurveda becomes simple and easy. How about ayurveda products ? Commercial shops are full of really expensive products and in my opinion a beginner does not need them much. Maybe Ama cleanser is most useful?

Yoga pedia about our subject
What is Maharishi Vedic approach to health actually?
It is based on anthroposophic human image. Thus it is a typical holistic medicine practise. It was founded by Indian Guru Maharishi Mahesh Yogi about 70-20 years ago. (More about this later) It is an ancient, millennium Indian wisdom. It is a preventive, holistic and organic health care system. Vedic approach to health emphasizes the right quality, individual diet, the right way to spice for digestion and herbs for health promotion. Ayurvedic food is very delicious. It is primarily a nutritionist for the yoga and the meditator, but it is also suitable for other people interested in their health. Specifically, it contains a total of 40 areas, the most important of which are meditation, yoga, nutrition and Vedic astrology.
The core message
is the elimination of profound imbalances and contaminants underlying the diseases, resulting in a large number of diseases being prevented or improved in advance. It is a doctrine of prevention. Behavioral rasayana: Maharishi Ayurveda includes a variety of guidelines and specialties. Among other things, the behavioral story is as follows: ”” Speak the sweet truth. That’s a quote from Indian Guru. It is worth emphasizing that “sweet” word, because at least in places like Facebook, it is always possible to tell the truth in every situation, so that it does not violate the listener. Every human message has at least a seed of truth. That seed just should get bloom in a beautiful way. For all the truth is after all beautiful. Some examples of ailments that cause people to seek Ayurveda counseling are depression, anxiety, digestive problems, endless fatigue, and “lack of life”.
Inadequate digestion leaves some of the food mass unmelted. This substance is absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract into the bloodstream and into all tissues by the veins of the logs and causing diseases. ama has two species: large molecules and free radicals. Excessive ama causes eg. long-lasting unexplained fatigue, lack of “posture”, morning mild white secretion on the tongue. ama problem is handled by normalizing digestion , whereby ama production stops. There are also special cleaning courses like Panchakarma.
Actually ama can be classified also to deep and superficial ama. 1) First of all don’t eat or drink anything cold. All cold stops digestion and increases ama accumulation. 2) Don’t eat anything hard to digest -food. For example raw food diets are mostly not good at all. Keyword is : digestion ! This is how ayurveda becomes simple and easy.
Digestion type determines the individual guidelines to heal digestion and remove ama
Digestion type is not always same than body type (about body types later). If the digestive type is kapha, constipation should be eliminated, if the digestive type is vata, there is sometimes constipation and sometimes even diarrhea. Even then, warm ginger water is suitable for most (not pregnant women, at least). . Prolonged digestive burns and stomach acids may come up to the throat. This is not good for digestion, as some types of pitta praise.
Pittan should avoid burning and eat, for example, fennel and other peaceful digestive spices. Frequently consumed with hot water is good for the abdomen and the stomach. But pitta must drink lukewarm. AND TIPS FOR EVERYONE: Do not eat poorly digestible food. Avoid raw diets. There was some confusion about when diarrhea is due to long digestion and when to vomiting? Well Vata’s character is change, so Vata’s digestion sometimes has coughing stomach, sometimes constipation, sometimes brief diarrhea and sometimes what. But with pitta digestion, diarrhea is more intense and lasts longer.
Body type theory : dosha test = body type test
3 mind-body operators or body types or doshas dominate the body’s functions. They are Vata, Pitta and Kapha. Vata governs all, that moves or changes like nervous system for example. Pitta governs digestion and metabolism. Kapha governs tissue formation. If any of these body types is disturbed, diseasies will follow. Usually one of the three body types is dominant in every human being. Some have up to 2 or 3 abnormally strong. Vata problem makes for example either as an exaggerated whooper whistle or a full-throbbing thoughts that get out there and here. Pitta problem makes for example aggressive career missile. Kapha problem makes for example deeply paralyzed overweight. Body type problems are mainly treated by eating foods that lower the particular dosha.
To be precise,
every dosha can be mostly at least in 4 stages: 1) normal and not disturbed 2) over-dominating, but not disturbed. 3) over-dominant and disturbed. 4) not dominant, but still disturbed. (A real Vaidya knows even more stages). For example, if pitta is over-dominant, but not disturbed, person will be a successfull career “missile”. But if his/her pitta gets disturbed while being over-dominant, consequence is a NON-successful, quarrelsome, over-perfectionist, who claims other people about every disappointment in his life. Generally speaking, non-disturbed body type gives the opposite effects, than the same dosha disturbed. A healthy kapha person is very courageous and fears nothing, but when his kapha gets disturbed, he becomes a very fierful, paralyzed person. And if vata is ok, person is happy and joyous, but when vata becomes disturbed, person is very cautious, secretive and unhappy.
The ancient way
of assessing the levels and disturbances of body type -states is by pulse reading (finger method, Chopra). However, nowadays also Vedapulse technology may give satisfactory results??. Actually the finger pulse reading is usually done by other person (Vaidya) rather that person himself. The very good Vaidyas can read also the amount of Ama with the same body type test . But in that particular Chopra article self pulse reading is shown. The “first aid” dosha test is a multiple choise questionnairy. You can find one in almost all yoga related sites nowadays.
According to dosha theory, the functions of the body are dominated by 3 basic “ideas”. Vata, Pitta and Kapha
The balance of the body is regulated by several hundreds of mechanisms. For example, if blood pressure drops, the mechanism starts to raise it and vice versa. Vedic techniques restore the functioning of the mechanisms and result in a balance in the whole body. All Ayurvedic treatments normalize the balance mechanisms.
6 Areas of health by Medical Doctor Stuart Rothenberg, USA
- physical health
- mental health (The working area of psychiatrists form example)
- spiritual health (the area of meditation for example)
- Social health (human relationships mostly)
- Environmental health (toxicity in body, living conditions and surroundings etc..)
- The Guidance of Supreme (the way you don’t want to scream it to all other people !)
A few notices about organized MA activities
Maharishi Ayurveda bases all information seeking to very humble and dedicated reading of the old Vedic texts of India . While some other Ayurveda producers might overlook small details from old texts, MA does not do so. The organization is led by born Indians mostly. But the practical job, especially in the United States , is governed by Western Medical Doctors. There is more or less friction between westerners and Indian Gurus, because westerners have their own scientific way to look at things. After all, even United States doctors do obey the old texts more strictly, than one could guess. One more thing to mention is, that the organization sells very highly priced products , but some of the leading doctors even in the United States say “first take care of good diet, then take care of good use of spices and only after that you may buy Maharishi Ayurveda products (meaning mostly herbs in this case)”. More information about my free thinking concerning western nutrition science and holistic health disciplines.

Ayurveda is a wide variety of advisers for many. You’ve probably heard stories of families where each family member has their own different food intake according to body types, etc. Many people use enormous amounts of nerve energy and time to follow all kinds of special instructions. In my opinion, the instructions should be set in order of priority and ease. Whenever it becomes stressful, it tells the wrong thing about past attempts. The social dimension must also be remembered. Many are so excited that they start telling their friends what specialty food to use. Well, no one dares to invite this person to visit, when the hostess desperately thinks, “What can it offer now when it’s a special diet?”.
My personal history with Maharishi Ayurveda and astrology
It all started in 1982 when I learned meditation. It naturally opened my consciousness to deeper things. Jyotish hobby began in 1985 and Maharishi Ayurveda 1988 (approx.). Both remained for decades at the level of intense personal hobby, until in 2014 I began to make Jyotish interpretations professionally or at least full-time for genuine demanding Indian customers via Facebook. The job took 4 years, until I got tired of the indifference of the Indian: They had no money to pay for my work. When it was “Matti’s purse”, I had to look for a more profitable job. My“Official” Jyotish training is limited to a couple of high-end weekend seminars. I started to work Ayurveda professionally in the autumn of 2017 when I went to a one-month course.
The history of the traditional Indian natural healing shortly
It is a thousands of years old doctrine on organic holistic health care and disease prevention. Nobody knows how long ago this information was created, but 5000 years ago it was recorded on paper (or similar writing instruments) in India. The first and greatest setback for ayurveda came during British colonial rule. British hosts are cruelly and systematically trying to root out all doctrine in India and replace it with their own medical doctrines of colonial hosts.
in its best form in some of the families who had lived in isolation. The information was mostly handed down from father to son because colonists prevented any other flow of information. It can be said that even in modern India, the learning and knowledge is very diverse and of varying degrees. Quite a few “clinics” work so poorly that a Western tourist who becomes a client gets out of treatment as sick as when they go there. In recent years, quality certifications have been developed to help the tourist choose the best treatment possible.
M. Mahesh Yogi
systematically contacted the Indian tribes in the 50s and 60s where the information had remained purest. Together, they developed a great deal of knowledge, especially about the little changes needed in treatments to make them suitable for the urban rush. Maharishi’s teaching has been the subject of very high-quality scientific research at quality universities. The word Maharishi Ayurveda itself is a kind of “quality seal “especially what comes to the herbal products they sell.
What is Jyotish or Indian Astrology?
My specialty is Jyotish Consultation. Jyotish, or Indian astrology, IS NOT THE SAME THAT IS TREATED IN FINLAND. I am one of the few Finnish, which is dominated by Jyotish. . Especially in the years 2015-2017, I created interpretations via Facebook for hundreds of demanding Indian customers. NOTICE: Jyotish is one part of Ayurveda ! Ayur veda is “the whole life” to Indians and “Jyotish” is part of the life naturally, say Indians.
GLOBAL ASTROLOGICAL TRANSIT PREDICTION (Dr. Punarvasu India)
FORWARD FOR THE NEXT 5 YEARS. (this is only “partial truth” because many important planetary layouts are not included)On the subject: Beginning January 24, shortly, Saturn will move to its own sign in Capricorn. Well, any planet in its own sign is a good thing. Saturn above all STABILIZES people’s lives, especially at the state level. There will be more honest values in international politics. values. For example, Donald Trump-like phenomena were typical when Saturn was still in its previous sign in Sagittarius.
of the Sagittarius sign is “arrogance” Thus, in US politics too, Trump-like phenomena will soon recede and be replaced by more caution and outrightness. So what do those 5 years mean to individuals? The answer is that it depends on the person. the map. Personally, I have Plush coming because in these past years Saturn has been heavily harassing the Moon of the Birth Map. Well, that’s it. No when you go, say grandma in the snow !!
About what I do and think about Jyotish
I make both Ayurvedic and Jyotish consultations, especially for people living in the Kuopio region, as a personal meeting, but you can also create a Jyotish Consultation via e-mail or Messenger all over the world. I also attend fair events. In September, the welfare fair in Kuopio Hall.A short astrological blogIndian astrology, or Jyotish or Vedic astrology, is the oldest form of astrology in the world. Believe it or not, but the form of astrology sold almost 100 percent in Finland is just a “special case” that was born only a couple of thousand years ago when Indian professionals taught the Greeks.
The Greeks, of course,
are learning something, but for example they were left with the wrong information about what kind of zodiac or animal path should be used. At that time 2000 years ago, both the tropical and the sideline zodiac were “overlapping” in the same degrees. After that, they are slowly slipping past each other so that the step difference is now about 23 degrees. So, if you are a westerner, for example, a dagger, you are probably a twin according to the Indian. NO Lots of many other basics found.
To be comforted, the client does not need to understand at all about the previously mentioned theories in my consultation . In my consultations, the client eg. learns to be “an astrologer himself”, that is, to create an astrological map on his cellphone and read various basics on his cell phone. Of course, my own expertise is also shared with the client. So take your cell phone with you!Half an hour is 40 euros and an hour is 80 euros. available to people living in Kuopio always and elsewhere in Finland at their discretion via Messenger or Facebook. Also in English.
