Column: Yogi Ashwani


Surya prana is a very strong and potent source of prana and minor variations in the colours of bottles and the metals being used when combined with Surya prana translate into miraculous effects on the being. Moving on to less expensive dhatus from gold and silver this month I will discuss about the effects of water kept in the sun in a copper (taamra) utensil.

Before going ahead with the process it is important to get an insight about the dhatu in question, its appearance, its properties and the most important aspect, its purity. Copper is a reddish coloured, shiny mental. After silver, copper is good electricity and heat conductor hence the importance of its purity.

As per our ancient sciences copper is of two types: Nepali copper and Malechh copper of which Nepali copper is pure which is smooth (snigdh), soft (mridu), shiny red coloured, non-breakable, heavy and pure (milavat rahit), has moisture and the one which does not get dark or blackish when it comes in contact with air. Opposite to this Malechh copper is whitish in colour, breakable, impure with other metals mixed in it and gets affected by contact with water and air.

So for our usage we will be using only Nepali copper which is pure as purity has a lot of significance in the healing techniques.

Taking a pure copper (Nepali taamra) utensil we fill it with fresh water and keep it in the sun for 1 to 2 hours, giving it enough time to absorb the Surya prana. The dhatu is responsible for determining the frequency of prana passing through it; hence in this case the prana filtering through a copper utensil will have the properties of the dhatu — taamra. Copper is bitter, astringent and pungent in taste; and sweet (madhur) in after taste, cool in potency, one that increases blood. It has properties of being able to heal wounds, balance all the three doshas, anti-toxic, beneficial in piles, skin diseases, swelling, respiratory disorders, acute pain, spleen and gynecological disorders and stomach disorders. Drink this water and feel the difference as whatever we talk about is purely experiential.

Copper utensils are widely available today but please ensure that it is procured from a shop of repute even if it means putting in a little extra money..
