….Colds cause most people to catch on Hamsa. If the problem is from the ‘left’ side, then this may be corrected by keeping the eyes focused on the ground, or by using Ida Nadi Swamini, or Mahakali mantras, or the Surya mantra; If it is the ‘right’ side catching, or if it is the liver, then we can use the name of Chandra, which will cool it down.
Problems can include shooting headaches on one side, or sinus problems, and may result from being overloaded with decision making. Avoid eating anything that is sharp or sour (,,); Also may result from dry conditions in home or workplace, and can be corrected by the use of ghee or oil in the nose – just one drop in each nostril, morning and evening; Butter is also good for sinus problems, and can be administered warm with a dropper, to the inside of the nose for 3 to 4 days, where it lines the inner dry and cracked membranes… butter is softening in its effect.
Now, in ‘collectivity’, the Krishna Principle plus the principle of Guru are mixed. So, when he becomes the Guru, then collectivity starts… when the principles of these two get integrated, then the collectivity starts… and as a result of that you get Discretion. So to improve the discretion part… we take vibrated ghee or butter, which is heated up … and put it in the nose. But before that we gargle… with salt …, which represents the Guru principle.
Best way to balance the nadis at Hamsa*, is by breathing exercise: breath in through one nostril, holds the breath for a while, then let it go out through the other. Now breath in through that nostril, hold for a while then let it go through the first one again. Do this three times only, and very slowly. Inhalers are also very good. The best is the ‘neti’ where you fill with water to below the spout, add 2 to 3 drops of whatever you get for inhaling, and then put (the spout – Ed) into one nostril and allow it to go in, breathing in through the other nostril. This clears (the Hamsa – Ed) and is a very good thing. Do this every night before sleeping for 3 to 4 days, and you will be absolutely cleared out. Imbalance comes from imbalance in our temperament, where one (person – Ed) starts dominating the other.
Putting ghee in the nose is a very simple yet a very important thing, to correct a bad Hamsa.
One of the symptoms of Aids is a bad Hamsa. It is important to put ghee in the nose to correct a bad Hamsa, otherwise, there will remain a susceptibility to Aids,,,,,,,,,
