Lady

The best Aphrodisiac:
A sexually excited female partner is the best aphrodisiac. She is the receptacle of the sex act. Each individual item of beauty in a woman gives immense pleasure to an individual. This accounts for her excellence as an aphrodisiac.

All objects of beauty are assembled in a woman in a compact form, nowhere else.
All the objects of senses found in the person of a woman evoke the maximum delight in a man. The woman is, therefore the most lovable for a man.
It is the woman who procreates children.

Dharma (righteousness), Artha (wealth), Lakshmi (auspiciousness) and the entire universe (loka) are established in a woman.
The woman who is
Suroopa – beautiful,
Youvanastha – young,
Lakshanairya Vibhooshita – endowed with auspicious signs
Vashya – who demands to get herself into control,
Shikshita – educated is the best aphrodisiac. [4-8]

Excellence of the Woman:
Women is as respectable as cow and Gods.
People in this world have different types of liking as a result of the effects of the actions in the past life.
A person gets a woman of his liking, then his beauty and virtues grow.

By her youthfulness, body, speaking style, and erotic performances, the woman enters into the heart of the person as a result of either Daiva or Karma (effects  of the actions in the past life).

She delights the heart; she is like Kama (God of sex); she bears similarity in her mental faculties with those of her husband; she is Vashya (amiable); she is loved by her lover and with her excellent qualities she work like a noose for sense organs.

A man who is deprived of her i.e., who does not have a wife, does not find any interest in this world. Without her, the person holds a body which is emptied of its senses.

In her presence, the person does not get seriously afflicted even when he faces grief, anxiety, detachment and frightful situations. Her very presence and looks are assuring and exciting to him.

He always rushes to her with excitement as if he has gained something unforeseen (pleasant). He is not satiated in spite of his repeated contacts with her. Such a woman is considered to be an aphrodisiac par excellence. Aphrodisiac qualities of a woman differs from one man to the other.

Panchakarma before Aphrodisiac therapy

Importance of Panchakarma ahead of Aphrodisiac therapy:
भवतश्चात्र-
स्रोतःसु शुद्धेष्वमले शरीरे वृष्यं यदा ना  मितमत्ति काले|
वृषायते तेन परं मनुष्यस्तद्बृंहणं चैव बलप्रदं च||५०||
तस्मात् पुरा शोधनमेव कार्यं बलानुरूपं न हि वृष्ययोगाः|
सिध्यन्ति देहे मलिने प्रयुक्ताः क्लिष्टे  यथा वाससि रागयोगाः||५१||
bhavataścātra-
srotaḥsu śuddheṣvamale śarīre vṛṣyaṃ yadā nā mitamatti kāle|
vṛṣāyate tena paraṃ manuṣyastadbṛṃhaṇaṃ caiva balapradaṃ ca||50||
tasmāt purā śodhanameva kāryaṃ balānurūpaṃ na hi vṛṣyayogāḥ|
sidhyanti dehe maline prayuktāḥ kliṣṭe  yathā vāsasi rāgayogāḥ||51||

Importance of Panchakarma ahead of Aphrodisiac therapy:
Thus it is said
If a person takes aphrodisiac recipes in appropriate quantity and in proper time, when the channels of circulation of his body are clean (by means of Panchakarma treatment), then they help in the promotion of virility, nourishment and strength.

Therefore, depending on the strength of the person, cleansing Panchakarma therapies should be administered to him, before he resorts to these aphrodisiac recipes.

As a dirty cloth does not get properly coloured similarly in an unlearned body, the aphrodisiac recipes do not produce the desired effects. [50-51]

तत्र श्लोकौ-
वाजीकरण सामर्थ्यं क्षेत्रं स्त्री यस्य चैव या|
ये दोषा निरपत्यानां गुणाः पुत्रवतां च ये||५२||
दश पञ्च च संयोगा वीर्यापत्यविवर्धनाः|
उक्तास्ते शरमूलीये पादे पुष्टिबलप्रदाः||५३||
tatra ślokau-
vājīkaraṇa sāmarthyaṃ kṣetraṃ strī yasya caiva yā|
ye doṣā nirapatyānāṃ guṇāḥ putravatāṃ ca ye||52||
daśa pañca ca saṃyogā vīryāpatyavivardhanāḥ|
uktāste śaramūlīye pāde puṣṭibalapradāḥ||53||

  1. Dear Sir,
    I have been reading your articles for past many years , i like your articles they are full of informations.
    But i think for most of the reader like me it only remains information with out any practicle implication.
    For example in your charaka samhitha vajikaran you have specified so many methods and herbs and ingriedients anf method of preparation.
    First place the name of the hearbs and there availabilty in the market and the preparations methods are so very labourious that no body attempts , and even if we attempt there are certain dosages and minute things which needs to be taken which comman people can not, so it just remains an information.
    I think the mass would be happy if ready made preparations are available from your end and i will be so happy to for it.

    Best regards
    Rajendran

  2. Dear Sir,
    Checked with a Farmer. He says there are three types of rice that are harvested in days time. White, Yellow and Red varieties.
    So which variety is this, which is very nutritional?

    Thank you in advance.
