Because of this the ear cure mechanism is also effective in curing problems originated in the womb.
    Ear acts like the body’s radar reflecting its working precisely. When these reflex points are activated the sensitive ear nerves carry the return cure reflexes as electromagnetic waves to the organs and body parts, the body responds quickly and diseases are cured.
    This is a wonderful effective nature cure through its remote control operation.
    This book will serve as a guide to variety of readers especially those interested in traditional medicine and healing systems.
    Nature’s gift to mankind.

    Exploring Science in Ancient Indian Texts by: Bal Ram Singh 850.00 765.00

    Philosophical and cultural factors play a significant role in developing scientific theories and interpreting data. These factors are also influential in assessing science and technology. We experience a visible distinction in the philosophy and culture of the West and East, mainly due to geographical and climatic reasons. And this difference reflects in their approach to science and technology too. Modern science has many roots in Vedic and Upanishadic knowledge. For historical reasons or so, this has been deliberately disassociated even from the philosophical bases. Vedic traditions or dharma traditions address many a question that modern science addresses. These include the origin of matter and universe, origin of life, origin of species and evolution, state of consciousness and mind, among others.
    This book addresses topics such as the basic premise of scientific approach to examine reality; mathematical and scientific knowledge, derivation, and application of Vedic perspective; and models for current scientific issues with Vedic perspective, and thus covers ideas of matter and universe, consciousness and mind, and fundamental questions of defining and applying science and scientific approaches. It also deliberates on more attractive aspects of Vedic knowledge such as Ayurveda and yoga, which are fast finding base across the globe.

    Hinduism and Scientific Quest by: TRR Iyengar 560.00

    Hinduism is not just a religion. It synonymizes the five-millennia of India’s cultural heritage. Which is unequivocally manifest in the Hindus’ architecture, sculptural art, music, mythology, Sanskrit literary classics, social institutions, and ethical/legal codes. And also in their complex philosophical systems addressing perpetually baffling questions concerning creation, existence, cosmic consciousness, reincarnation, and the like. Yet, ironically perhaps, not many know about the striking breakthroughs of Hindu sages in astronomy, mathematics, chemistry, medicine, metallurgy, and other ancient-time sciences — leave alone a deficient awareness of the monumental treatises of Charaka, Aryabhatta, Bhaskara and Kautilya that still remain as landmarks in the scientific history. Here is a book trying to highlight how Hinduism of yore : both in its motivations and methodology, laid the foundations of modern scientific quest. Drawing on the prodigious mass of Vedic/post-Vedic Sanskrit writings, the author focuses specially on some of the contemporary scientific ideas vis-a-vis the achievements of the old-world Hinduism in cosmogony, astronomy, meteorology and psychology. Contextually, Iyengar’s book also unfolds the Hindu worldviews of creation, soul and determinism, among other fundamental philosophical concepts. Discerning readers will find Hinduism and Scientific Quest as much a useful read as the scholars of traditional Indian philosophy and history of science.

Written in an easy-to-understand language, the work abounds in quotations and other references to the sacred scriptures and famous ancient works on yoga to provide a broad base and comprehensive treatment of the subject. The book will prove extremely relevant to all those simply interested in yoga or involved in studies on yoga, whether they are beginners, scholars or spiritual aspirants.

    Indianization of scientific terms by: Lokesh Chandra 3,600.00 3,240.00

    Modern science has created around a million words in European languages. As India gained independence it became imperative to create terms for administration, industry, humanistic and scientific disciplines. It was a continuation of a long tradition of linguistic creativity. This book is a collection of the writeups of Prof. RaghuVira who was the prime `maker of Indian words’. The source languages of European terminologies Greek and Latin shared the same grammatical basis of word-formation from roots with prefixes and suffixes like Sanskrit the historical source language of India. Language as a process of evolution, creation of Japanese and Chinese terminologies, the linguistic reform in Turkish, rejuvenation of Hebrew, the development of Hindi as the official language, principles of coining Indian terms, the art of translation, improvement in Indian terms due to scientific advances, and several facets of the linguistic revolution in newly liberated countries can be read in this book in the very words of Prof. RaghuVira the creator of India’s macrocosm of linguistic evolution. The book is a thrilling narrative of India’s logos, with parallels from other land
