 Right Thinking - Vedanta

      As we mentioned earlier "ignorance" is the cause of all our suffering, which in other words is lack of "right thinking". In fact, suffering or disease is an alarm bell, warning you that you are ignorant about some issues dealing with your mind and body which require attention in the form of right thinking. Sakthi Foundation derives its knowledge of right thinking from Vedanta,  the ancient knowledge of India.  This is not a religion dictated by one person nor a single book of do's and don'ts. The attraction of Vedanta lies in sharpening our intellect through vigorous discussion and analysis and the conclusions drawn stand eternally true for humans for all Ages. Even in this technological age, this Truth gives unflinching light to guide us in our evolution.

      Vedanta in Sanskrit means the "ultimate knowledge". This is the perfect science of experimentation, observation and finally drawing inference on the subject. All the scriptures in Vedanta are dialogues between two people discussing a subject.

    We will use this profound knowledge of Vedanta to analyze the source of all physical and mental problems and even go beyond them.

Positive Thoughts

      We will discuss how various diseases of the body and mind arise by lack of positive thoughts. Positive thoughts arise when we act  through the emotional mind under the supervision of the intellect. Negative thoughts are fertilized by the emotional mind. Negative thoughts should be avoided because they manifest as diseases in the body and even the mind itself. Ayurveda , the science  of health, in contrast to modern medicine attributes negative thoughts of the mind to be the cause of all diseases.

         This is why in Ayurveda the mind and body is always taken into account together while treating diseases. In fact, an efficient Ayurvedic physician will focus more on the emotional state of the patient rather than prescribing herbal medications for only the physical symptoms. Herbal medications in Ayurveda are prescribed for immediate attention to the body and relief of symptoms.

             A traditional Ayurvedic doctor would then pay attention to the root cause of the disturbances in the mind. Unfortunately, most modern Ayurvedic doctors ignore this fundamental aspect of treatment. Ayurveda is a perfect health system because it addresses the health problem by going to the  root and  does not fool the body by getting rid of the symptoms.
