Arati: It is performed as an act of veneration and love. It is often per-formed as a mark of worship and to seek blessings from God, to welcome the guests, for children on their birthdays, family members on auspicious occasions or to welcome a newly wedded couple. For performing Arati, five small lamps called niranjanas are filled with ghee or oil and arranged in a small tray made of metal. A wick is made out of cotton wool and placed in the lamps.
A conchshell filled with water, auspicious leaves or flowers, incense or lighted camphor are also placed in the tray. The lamps are lit and the tray is rotated in a circular motion in front of the deity or the person to be welcomed. The purpose of performing arati is to ward off evil effects and the malefic influence of the evil eye. Namaskar: Namaskar or Namaste is the most popular form of greeting in India.

Vocal Music Music and dance in India are among the oldest forms of classical arts with traditions that date back several centuries. Indian music has deve-loped within a complex interaction between people of different races and cultures. Today, Indian classical music can be classified into two broad traditions, North Indian and South Indian. The north Indian tradition is known as Hindustani Sangeet.
The south Indian tradition of music is called Carnatic Sangeet. Both traditions are fundamentally similar but differ in nomenclature and the way they are performed. Indian music is based upon two pillars. They are Raga, which is the melodic form, and the Tal, the rhythmic form. They are sung at an appointed hour of the day or night. Ragas are made of different combi-nations of some or all of the sapta swara the seven notes. These sapta swara are fundamental to Indian classical music, both Hindustani and Carnatic. Carnatic Music Carnatic music is considered one of the oldest forms of music in the world.
Imbued with emotion and the spirit of improvisation, it also contains a scientific approach. This is mainly due to the contributions of inspired artists such as Purandara Dasa, known as the Father of Carnatic music. The important element of Carnatic music is its devotional content. The lyrics of traditional compositions are set entirely against a devotional or philosophical background. Three saint composers Tyagaraja, Muthuswami Dikshatar and Shyama Shastri have composed thousands of songs that remain favourites among musicians and audiences.
The Melakarta Ragams are the sixty two basic roots for all Carnatic music. This system is divided into two sets of thirty one ragas. This is very similar to the Western concept of scales and the circle of flats. The Sapta Talas is the basis for rhythm in Carnatic music. Using these sapta talas, all of Bahar Bhairav the one hundred and fifty Carnatic Bhairavi Darbari talams can be derived. A typical Sindhu Bhairavi Desh Carnatic classical vocal performance Bhimpalashri Khamaj begins with a varnam a composition Darbari Kannada Jaijaivanti with three parts: pallavi, anupallavi Hamsadvani Todi and chitta- swaram , followed with Shyam Kalyani Pilu one or two short kriti songs to build Megh Malhar Yeman up a tempo.
Hindustani Music Dhrupad is an ancient style of Hindustani vocal music. It pre-dates other forms of vocal music like Khayal, Dadra and Thumri by a number of centuries. In the Dhrupad per-formance, the singer is accompanied by a tanpura and a pakhawaj. The per-formance begins with a long, complex alaap and the treatment of the compositions is different from the khayal. It focuses more on the nuances of the raga and the text and less on technical feats.
Khayal is the most popular type of classical vocal performance today. The singer begins with a short alaap in which the characteristics of the raga are developed. No words are sung, but the singer concentrates on the notes of the raga while improvising within its structures. Each phrase that the singer sings may be repeated by the accompanist. When the raga has been properly introduced, the first composition, bandish Bada Khayal begins.
The tabla enters in a very slow tempo - one cycle of the tal may take a minute or more. Although the singer is presenting a composition, most of the music is still improvised, with the composition acting as a refrain for the improvised material.
Thumri is a lighter classical vocal style that developed around the middle of the nineteenth century from a style called Lachari. Thumri has grown so significantly, that it can be divided into a variety of sub-genres. Dadra, Hori, Chaiti, Kajri and Jhoola are some of its prominent forms which are heard separately in a performance. Other light classical music is usually rendered in a medium madhya kaal or fast teevra gati tempo and will not have a lengthy alaap. The emphasis is on presentation of the text, rather than nuances of the raga.
Ghazal The Ghazal is a form of Urdu poetry that is sung. Eloquent shayari poetry , gentle mausiqui music and fragile jazbaat emotions combine to create the Ghazal. The music for the Ghazal is slow paced and the lyrics are often repeated twie or thrice. The first couplet of a ghazal is matla and the finishing couplet is called makta. The remaining couplets are called misra and antara. Qawwali Qawwali is a high-pitched and fast paced style of singing that was developed in the thirteenth century. During that period, sufism was becoming popular in India and Qawwali emerged from the mystical sayings of Sufi saints.
The followers of Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti Garib Nawaz, the famous Sufi saint of Ajmer Rajasthan , adopted and improvised Hindustani classical music to popularise qual or the sayings of Sufi saints which resulted in a style of singing called Qawwali. Despite originally having developed from mystical music it later also began to include romantic themes. Folk Music Folk music of India is the most natural representation of the emotions of the masses. It resonates with the vibrant diversity of the land and the traditions of simple folk.
These songs are associated with every event of life. Be it festivals, advent of new seasons, marriages, births or even every day affairs like wooing a loved one or admiring nature etc. Although folk music originated within small regional confines, it has reached out to touch the hearts of masses across India.

It has a religious context as Lord Krishna is pictured with a flute and the instrument is also embedded in the music of the Buddhists. Furthermore, the ancient frescoes of Ajanta and Ellora depict the flute or Bansuri as an accompaniment to vocal and instrumental music in ancient India.

Made of wood a quarter metre long, the drumheads are held in position by interlacing cotton threads. The player beats the drum with one hand while simultaneously manipulating the strings with the other, thus creating a variety of musical notes.
Violin: The violin is the only western instrument that has been completely absorbed into Indian music. The strings of the Violin in India are tuned to different notes than its western counterpart. The light tone of the steel string and the deep, almost human tone of the fourth string embellishes the peculiarities of Carnatic music.
Veena: This southern instrument is associated with the Goddess Saraswati, the deity of learning and fine arts. The body of the Veena is made from a hollow block of wood, with its neck attached to the stem resulting in a figure that looks like the head of a dragon. The instrument consists of twenty-four fixed frets and seven strings. It has a broad stem and six main strings that are fastened to wooden pegs fixed to the other end. The Vichitra Veena is played by a plectrum and is capable of producing delicate nuances. The instrument consists of about eighteen porcelain cups of different sizes, each possessing a distinctive tone.
The cups are arranged in a semi-circle in front of the performer, beginning from the largest to the smallest. The bigger cups produce a deep pitch while the smaller have a higher pitch. The level of water in the cups also helps to control the pitch, a higher water level contributes to a lower pitch. Dholak: The Dholak is a drum used to accompany light forms of music like bhajans, ghazals, qawaali and most of folk music. It is made of a trapenzoidal wooden box and has thirty bridges and a set of four strings of metal which are stretched over each pair of bridges.
The instrument is played with a pair of flat wooden pieces. Mridangam: Commonly used in south India, it is among the most highly developed and most ancient of all percussion instruments. It is a cylindrical hollow block of wood with hide being used to cover the two ends. A wide variety of tones can be obtained from different parts of the instrument.
Shehnai: Of Persian origin, the Shehnai is a one reed instrument with six holes yielding a soft and melodious sound. Made of a smooth dark-grained black wood, the tube is narrower on the top and widens towards the bottom affixed in a cup. The notes it produces are continuous and generally used in classical and light classical music. Pakhwaj: The Pakhwaj originates in north India and is similar to the Mridangam except for slight differences in construction and playing techniques.
The Pakhwaj is played with an open left hand, whereas southern musicians use the left side similar to the tabla players. Chenda: The Chenda is a hollow cylindrical instrument made from softwood, the ends of which are covered with cow hide. It is the chief accompaniment in Kathakali, and is the most important instrument which is played in temples Tabla Banya: The Tabla, as it is often called, consists of a set of two drums.

Ayurveda is the ancient Indian health science developed through centuries long research works of sages, who were eminent scholars. Keen observation and study of nature including all kinds of life in the world for hundreds of years could only have formulated such a life science which has a concrete basis in Indian philosophy and wide reaching applicability in life of all sorts. The dynamic equilibrium of these leads to perfect health and imbalance of any of these leads to disease. To attain perfect health we have to maintain the original, natural balance of these.
Full text of "Yuva Bharati"
The role of a physician is to understand the imbalance happened to this dynamic equilibrium and to correct or give advice as how can it be brought to the original state, whether with medicine or with changes in life style. He studies the patient; not only the disease, with some special techniques and gives you some medicines and lot of advice, after which you may feel healthier and no. Though Doshas Dhatus and Malas are equally important, Doshas have added dominance; because human body and everything in it are influenced by doshas and maintenance of their balance will correct the defects of the other.
Doshas are three - vata, pitta, and kapha and they may not be equal and same in all. According to the dominance of each dosha every man is categorised to different types. There can be single dosha types - 2 dosha and 3 - dosha types. A lot of rearrangements and adjustments we can do in a positive way in our life style, food habits etc; according to our body type to attain a stage of perfect health and to resist illness. So nowadays, in the age of dreadful diseases the ayurvedic system of identifying body types have unfathomable importance.
Physical and mental co-operation of the patient to make necessary changes in his life style and food habits also are essential to procure the natural dynamic balance of the doshas and once that balance is maintained the illness is gone. So every ayurvedic doctor is making his patient very healthy and not treating the disease. Ayurveda gives special emphasis on prevention on disease. Signs and symptoms by which we can foresee an illness are well described in the texts so that can take necessary steps to avoid it or lessen the strength of it.
More over it describes how to live to avoid disease in each climate and how can perfect health be maintained throughout the life. A strict follower of these advices can enjoy an ill-less enthusiastic life with high quality physical, mental and spiritual health. Treatment of Making you healthy The treatment in ayurveda is classified mainly into two Samana and Sodhana.
Samana is the pacifying way of treatment and sodhana roots out the disease from the body. Oral therapy and easier means of treatment are prescribed under. Samana treatment. But Sodhana treatment is extensive, time consuming procedures to change a diseased man to the original healthy man. These are widely used all over India for patients with chronic illnesses.
Medicine You are what you eat - according to ayurvedic principle. So much significance is given to the food habits and life style. Natural herbs are widely used as medicines. In fundamental principles of Ayurveda 5 basic elements are very important. The universe, and anything in the universe is believed to be made of these 5 elementsair, water, earth, fire and space. Quality and nature of everything varies according to difference in the proportion of these elements.
According to the dominance of these elements each plant or each mineral exhibits its own physical and chemical characters. This basic principle is made use of in the formulation of medicines in Ayurveda. Since natural herbs being the main ingredients of the medicines, side effects or ill effects are negligible. So it is more or less safe to use ayurvedic drugs in any condition.
In modern medicine side effects of drugs are the most scaring nightmare these days. Powerful chemicals used to cure simple illness usually. There is a branch of ayurveda where solely chemicals are used as medicine. But on every step from the purification of the chemical to the directions for the usage, special care is taken to avoid any side effects and if used in the prescribed manner these are also reliable. Panchakarma and Kerala Treatments Panchakarma is a term most mistaken among European people.
It is really 5 main treatments, by which viciated doshas are expelled from the body. They include Vamana induced vomiting Virechanam Purgation Asthapanam enema with decoction Anuvasanam enema with oil and Nasyam Nasal application of oil. According to another school, both the enemas are included under common title Vasti and 5th one is Rakta-moksham Blood letting. Oleation of the body and steam bath are performed before Vamana induced vomiting Vire-chana Purgation etc.
The viciated doshas, waste materials and toxins are expelled by panchakarma. But for the convenience of the complete expulsion they are collected at particular sites by these pre-panchakarma process. There are particular, prescribed procedures and steps by which these are carried out.
Kerala is a small state situated at the south west of India. If anything new comes, it will sow the seeds of that in its own soil and cultivate with its own water and air and then will reap the results and that will be used. This happened in the case of ayurveda also. Apart from all over India, Kerala has a special method of treatment.
Though the lessons and texts studied are same, the system of treatment is entirely different and far more effective as well. So it is very effective and essential in diseases where the basic cause is blockage. There are prescribed preparatory procedures and post treatment regimen for all intensive ayurvedic treatments.
If it is not observed, these treatments may make serious ill effects on the body, which are very difficult to get rid of. Some very important points to be borne in mind before undergoing intensive ayurvedic treatments: Pizhichil oil bath is contra indicated in serious liver and renal problems. After each set of 7 oil baths a purgation is essential, because the toxins and waste materials collected in the intestine, as a result of the oil baths, should be expelled or it will be reabsorbed in the body.
Blood parameters should be checked and kept in safe level before starting any of the intensive treatments. Whole body rice bundle massage is contra indicated in diabetics, obese and patients withserious cardiac, heptic and renal problems. In summer and in patients with elevated pitta, leaf or medicated powder bundle massage whole body is not good. Sirodhara should not be done in cerebral thrombosis or may lead to fatal embolisms. Sirovasti has strong impact on brain. So it should be done with proper care and under the guidance and presence of a physician and only in serious brain and nerve diseases.
Perfect rest, regular oil massage, oral drugs and. Steam bath should not be done: If you are not treated with oil inside and outside OR if you are: obese, too lean, too weak, having loose motion diarrhoea or bleeding of any sort, After trauma, alcoholic having cataract, ascitis, some of skin conditions, tuberculosis, arthritis, prolapsed rectum, fatigue, anger, depression, fear, hunger, thirst, jaundice, hepatitis, anaemia, diabetes, excessive pitha and preganancy.
Healthy mind is seen only in a healthy body - ayurveda believes. Mental derangement can lead to ill health and contrariwise. Mind - body relation is well explained in ayurveda with an example of ghee in a pot. The heat of the pot may conduct to the ghee inside and the heat of the ghee vice versa. Thus any mental aberration can lead to physical abnormalities and physical problems to mental distortions. Then one eminent physician teach a group of selected students accommodating. Thus they could gain a thorough theoretical and practical knowledge in every aspect of the system from the basic principles of different ways of management.
Whenever he felt them to be fit to practice he would let them to start their own practice. This was the right and effective means to study ayurveda well. But as time changed started to function under various universities where ayurveda is taught now. In south India there are a lot of ayurveda colleges now. After matriculation interested ones can seek admission there by passing an entrance examination.
The duration of the course is usually 5 years and after passing the qualifying examination they can have an internship for 6 months in hospitals attached to the college. Thus ayurvedic doctors are made now.
