"In Coimbatore we were received with flowers. We participated in a puja to Ganesha, the Lord who removes the obstacles, and open the paths, the services and studies, to start the studies day auspiciously.
The Indian people are very different from the western one. Theis logic is a bit illogical in some ways, a lot of fun.
The routine starts early in the morning. I wake up 6:00 am, practice yoga, I have breakfast and 9:00 am start ayurveda class. I study about plants and other substances like oils, urine, minerals, nuts and different forms of substances and their preparations.
At night my friends and I would go to the city center to eat or buy Indian items in the shops or just stroll around. Was very fun. As Indian currency, rupee is very devalued compared to dollar, even if I took little money, I was able to have a lot of fun.
We went to very good restaurants, with good meal and my friends purchased excellent Indian items. Clothes, decoration items, personal health and Indian spices.
Indian people are very religious and there are hindus temples in all city, In the clinic where I stayed there was a temple to Ganesh, the God who removes all obstacles, God of Commerce and abundance.
There are very interesting rituals, such as the ritual of Fire, Havan. This ritual is used when starting new activities such as our course. A priest goes to the place, builds a fire within a circular construction, the priest chants the Mantras that are words of power to Agni, the God of Fire and the participants made the offerings throwing them in the fire according to the order of the priest. Throughout the course a flame was lit all time until its closure, when we had graduation and received our certificates and a graduation scarf .The whole stay was very peculiar.
The Indian people are lovely to Brazilians and the country is fantastic.
I'll be back soon."
Nosso trabalho na Ediomas é apenas orientação através da língua. Quando montamos um curso sobre terapia Ayurvédica, não somos nós os protagonistas deste saber, e sim nosso aluno. É o aluno que traz toda a sua experiência, seu conhecimento na área. Nós aqui simplesmente orientamos esse trabalho em inglês. Resultado: o aluno se promove e promove o seu conhecimento em outro idioma. Bom né?!
Então aqui vai, na seção Publique-se, Mara Fristachi dá uma aula sobre terapia e tratamentos Ayurvédicos, além de nos contar um pouco sobre a sua experiência visitando a Índia. Aproveitem!!
It starts with a reading a text Mara shared with me when she was preparing for her course and trip to India.
Fresch juice (svarasa), herbal paste (curna), decoction (kvatha/kasaya), distilled waters (arka), hot infusion (phanta), cold infusion (hima), herbal jams and jellies (paka, leha, avaleha), medicate wines (arista, asava and tinctures, gugulls, pills (gutika, vati), alkaline extracts (ksara) and guduchi sattva, medicate ghee (siddha ghrta), medicated oil (siddha taila), minerals (rasasastra),
Gugulls: it´s made with gugullu purified. It´s boiled in a decoction of triphala to remove impurities then fried in ghee and ground to a powder.
The tongue vata will tend to be thinner, smaller, and a bit rough and dry.
The text has many things that I didn´t know like safety and conservation of the ayurvedic pharmacopeia, but the main thing is theattention that I to read the topics. Learning is more efficient because language is English.
