The power of the Vedas: Vedic rituals reduce atmospheric pollution, fight climate change


By Syed Akbar

The rituals prescribed in the ancient Indian Scriptures, particularly the 
Vedas, are capable of reducing atmospheric pollution by controlling the 
pollutants (evil energy). Several studies conducted by the Institute of 
Scientific Research on Vedas, Hyderabad, showed that pollution could 
be checked by spreading "positive energy" generated through Vedic 
rituals like Homas and circumambulation of holy trees and plants.
The human "aura" could be increased to a considerable extent for 
positive signs through intervention of Vedic rituals and holy trees and 
plants mentioned in the Indian Scriptures.
According to Sri Kuppa Krishna Murthy of the Vedic Research 
Institute, Vedic rituals not only fight pollutants in the atmosphere but 
also cleanse the harmful elements like bacteria, virus and protozoans 
living as parasites in the human bodies.
Vedic research scholar Dr Mannem Murthy, who conducted a series of 
studies on the positive aspects of Vedic rituals, points out "these 
experiments can be an eye opener to present scientists and critics of the 
ancient Indian system. Medicinal plants, gems and precious stones, 
regular usage of sacred flowers and organising homas and Vedic rituals 
are a few ways of protecting environment and minimising pollution 
levels both inside and outside our bodies".
Research studies by the Institute of Scientific Research on Vedas at 
different places in Andhra Pradesh recently showed that a few trees 
mentioned in the ancient texts like Tulasi (holy basil), Jammi (Bulrush 
tree), Ravi (Peepul tree) and Neem exclusively possess and emit 
positive energy through which negative energy of man can be swiped 
away. There are some trees, which many people worship, has aura 
extending beyond human aura. "It is surprising to know that a 5 feet 
and five inches and 60 to 70 kgs man would have 2.5 metres aura 
whereas 1ft and 5 inches height Tulasi plant, weighing hardly 150 gms, 
gives 6.11 metres of aura," Dr Mannem Murthy points out.
In an experiment conducted through a universal scanner on Neem and 
Peepul trees in a Shiva temple in Eluru recently. Before the start of the 
experiment, the aura of a person was scanned and it was found to be 
extending to 2.5 mts. Later, he was asked to stand for five minutes near 
the Peepul and Neem trees and his aura was noted again. This time it 
was 3.35 mts. He was asked to make 11 rounds (circumambulation). He 
did so and his final aura was recorded as 4.0 mts. There was an increase 
in the person's aura from 2.5 mts to 4 mts i.e. 1.5 mts.
In another experiment in Eluru in Balaji temple on a fig tree, a person's 
initial aura was measured as 2.58 mts. His aura was 5.01 mts after 
circumambulating 11 times around the fig tree. There was an increase 
of  2.58 mts in his aura.
Says Krishna Murthy, "like a needle obtains magnetic properties after 
being rubbed against a magnet, we humans too get our aura increased 
after standing or sitting in the shade of certain trees. By moving around 
some species of trees or sacred objects, man absorbs some quantity of 
positive aura".
In several experiments the aura of sacred trees mentioned in Hindu 
epics was measured using a universal scanner. The results (in metres) 
are: banyan 10.10; Kadambam 8.40; Tulasi (Osmium 6.11; jammi 
(Prosobis spicegera) 5.90; neem and raavi 5.50; Maredu (Aegle 
marmalus) 4.80; Medi (Ficus carcia) 4.55; Usiri (Amla) 4.30; Raavi 
(Ficus religiosa) 3.50; Mango (mangifera indica) 3.50 and neem 3.50.
Like trees, even flowers too emit aura and increase the positive energy 
of man. The fragrance and colours of flowers have different wave 
lengths. The floral aura of different flowers in metres are: Deva 
ganneru (Divine oleander) 7.2; Lotus 6.8; Rose 5.7; Mandaram 
(Hibiscus) 5.5; Yellow ganneru (Oleander) 5.0; Marigold 4.7; Lilly 4.1; 
Yellow chrysantemum 3.6; Violet chrysantemum 3.1; Jasmine 3.3; 
Jajulu 3.1 and Kankambaralu 3.0. White calotrophis, which is used for 
Shiva puja, has maximum aura of 15 mts.  But they are poisonous 
(positive high aura).
Vedic experiments also showed that the aura energies of precious 
stones are useful for human health. The auras of precious stones 
measured in metres are: emerald (mercury) 3.20; diamond (Venus) 7.5; 
white pearl (moon) 3.48; yellow sapphire (Jupiter) 3.20; ruby (sun) 
3.30; red coral (Mars) 8.80;  Cat's eye (Ketu) 3.60; Blue sapphire 
(Saturn) 2.4; Gomeda (Rahu) 3.00.
In a Vedic ritual at Jillelamudi in Guntur district, dry stems of raavi, 
rice grains, cow ghee and the idols of Lakshmi, Ganapathi and 
Subrahmanya were used. The initial aura was 5.10 mts and the final 
aura was 62.0 mt. The atmosphere purified was 4988220 cu.m. In 
another experiment at Palacole, a square shaped homagundum was 
formed and the leaves of Raavi, Medi, Jammi, Garika, Darbha, Jilledu, 
Tendla, cow ghee, maredu and nine varieties of grain were used. The 
initial aura was 6.5 mts and the final aura was 102 mts.
