Abstract

A LITERARY REVIEW ON EFFECT OF YAGYA ON PSYCHOLOGICAL DISORDERS

Devesh Panwar*, Ravi Raj Singh and Namrta Kulshreshtha

ABSTRACT

The ancient Indian thought emphasized the theory of unity of body and soul and also explained how to deal with health and mental health problems in a psychosomatic way. A concern with mental health has long been a part of Indian culture, which has evolved in a variety of ways, attempting to understand and negotiate psychological disorder. Vedas mention mantras for prayers to bring noble thoughts to mind and purify it. Rigveda describes sattva, raja, and tama as personality traits and also identifies mental illness independent of physical illness. Yajurveda conceptualized mind as the inner flame of knowledge. Atharvaveda describes “Manas” as an instrument of hypnotism and talks in details about will power, emotion, inspiration, and consciousness. “Unmad” (psychosis) has been mentioned as a deluded state of mind in Vedas with etiology suggestive of both organic (worms/microorganisms, fever, etc.) and functional (sins toward Gods) origin. Vedas also mention treatment for mental disorders ranging from psychosis, epilepsy, sleep disorder, and aggression in the form of “Bheshaj” (medicine) and prayers to God (psychotherapy), along with preventive methods such as “Yam” and “Niyam” (behavioral control) and “Asan” and “Pranayam” (physical activities).(Gautam S.1999).[1]
