Column: Yogi Ashwani


Brass has been used quite frequently in making various decoration items and utensils. It is a sub-metal (updhatu) which is a mixture of two metals namely copper (taamra) and zinc (yashad). Brass is shiny yellow in colour, smooth (snigdha), and soft—a flexible metal. Pure brass is shiny (chamkeela), strong (dridh), flexible and non-breakable.

In contrast, brass that is dull redish white, rough yellow coloured (khurdura peela), blackish, breakable (tutnewala), and light in weight is considered to be impure and inedible.

Because of its properties our ancestors have been using brass for making utensils for storing food. Regular intake of water having kept in a brass container and having absorbed surya prana for 1-2 hours is very effective in purifying blood (rakt vikar shodhan), and in curing intestinal worms, skin disease, anaemia, asthma, diabetes, imbalances of vata, and fissures. It is pungent, dry, and mildly hot and purifies semen. It also promotes semen.

Take a brass container and fill it up with fresh water. Keep it in sunlight for 1-2 hours. The water tends to absorb the qualities of brass and the surya prana filtering through the brass container. 

The frequency of the brass and that of the surya prana together prove to be extremely useful in curing the disease mentioned above. These simple techniques when adopted on a regular basis correct the imbalance in the body which is the main cause of any disease.

Once again as a reminder to our readers we would like to mention that the purity of the dhatu is of utmost importance before venturing into any of these techniques as the ancient sciences are extremely precise and based on the frequencies of each ingredient being used in the healing. Thus make sure that you make the purchases from reputed shops only. A wrong selection can result in causing more ashanti in the body rather than taking it towards shanti which is balance and harmony.
