Product Description

Haritaki is a divine herb.  It’s one of those rare herbs that can be used to help with many conditions and to bestow the rasayana effect – promoting longevity and correcting imbalances.  Vaidya Mishra’s father, Kameshwar Mishra, said haritaki can be used for almost any situation provided you have the wisdom and know what other things to combine (samyog) with it. Specifically, you must understand the prabhava (ultimate effect) and actions of haritaki given in the Ayurvedic sutras.

Haritaki according to the sutras (verses)

Haritaki pancarasa lavana tuvarah param:  It has same five rasas, like amlaki, except lavan, the salty taste.

Ruksosna:  Ruksha – it’s dry and creates dryness in the body. Ushna, it’s hot. Why does it create dryness?  It scrapes the toxins.  That’s how it creates dryness. God has given haritaki the kshaya, astringent taste and also the amla (sour) taste which has agni.  If a channel in the body has a problem, the ushna guna of haritaki can clean the channel.  That’s why this is special.

Dipani:  It increases the pachak agni of stomach, bhuta agni (all five agnis of liver) and all seven agnis of the tissues.

Medhya:  This means it enhances the individual faculties of the mind and their coordination: Dhi (power of learning); Dhriti (power of retaining); and Smriti (power of recall).

Svadupaka:  The vipak is swadu, or sweet.  The sweet post-digestive effect of this herb makes a lot of difference, as it will not create a lot of agni long term.  So, nothing can stop haritaki on the way of digestion or assimilation, but at the end it cools off.  It cools the body and at the end it has all somagenic qualities.  The prabhava is very rasayana (rejuvenating.)

Caksusya:  Gives healthier life span to the eyes.

Laghurayusya: laghu=light; ayushya=supports longevity.  It is laghu, not creating any heaviness in the system.  Laghu quality means it is good for people who are overweight.  But you have to be very careful if someone is underweight.  Use with caution – as in, use with other ingredients, such as the Triphala formulation, which has two somagenic fruits.  Vaidya Mishra’s lineage uses baby haritaki, which has more soma.  Mature haritaki has more agni and more marut.  Vaidya does not use fully mature haritaki for the person with high pitta, high vata or a hard time gaining weight.  Baby haritaki retains the other properties but it is more soma predominant and safer to use.

Bringhani:  bringhani=nurtures all the tissues and enhances shukra dhatu.  These two words bringhani and vrishya should be understood together.  Vrishya means ‘increasing shukra dhatu’.  It goes to the gap between majja and shukra and works there to enhance the transformation.  Bringhani means ‘nourishing all the seven tissues’.

Anulomani:   Anuloman is one prabhava of this fruit, which means pushing apana down, or making the whole body intelligent enough to release all the used prana.  That’s how the SVA lineage recognizes this prabhava.  This fruit has a lot of divine power.  It can clean the nadis (vibrational channels.)  It has the swara, the primordial vibrational sound of nature.  Therefore, haritaki can communicate with the swara and connect.  All the herbs or fruits or spices that have this anulomana prabhava have the divine energy to give more communication and connection between the individual energy and the universal energy.  All the used prana, all the used material (not only the fecal matter) but also the urine, sweat, and everything else can get out of the body on time.
