Development of Life Energy
The Effect of Music:
The classical music composers of the world are generally found to have a longer life span. The mystery behind it is that the music raises the life energy. Not only can one get this benefit by listening to music, but one also gets the benefit even when the ears are plugged, because the sound waves of the music vibrate the listener’s body which also raises the life energy. Thus music is useful for sound health too.
The natural sound of waterfalls and streams also enhances life energy, as do the chirping and singing of birds. There is an exception to this rule however. The popular rock and pop music of the western world actually diminishes the life energy of the performer and the listener. Dr Diamond proved through experiments of biokinesiology that the deltoid muscle of an ordinary man’s hand can lift 40-45 Kg of weight, but where rock music is being played, then its capability to lift weight gets reduced to only 10-15 Kg. Thus rock music diminishes the life energy, whereas the sound of pure, pious, classical music and natural sounds raise the life energy.

A Remedy for Headache
Whenever you are tired, just protrude your tongue a bit through your lips, press the index fingers with the respective thumbs in such a way as they make a zero each and rest awhile in this position. This practice helps nourish the neurons and alleviates fatigue. Similarly, one suffering from a severe headache should protrude his tongue out through the teeth and make the form of a zero with the index fingers and thumbs of each hand in the above manner. This should be practised for two minutes at a time and thrice a day. It has helped cure numerous types of headaches so far. Once there was a Shastriji Maharaj. He narrated stories from the „Bhagavata Purana‟. But he would suffer from headache just after a few minutes of starting the discourse. He tried all types of therapies but without success. Once he happened to tell Ghatwale Baba, “Babaji! Despite all medical treatments I have failed to find relief from this headache.” Then Ghatwale Baba advised him to practise the above technique for a few days regularly, which he did and got cured. „As numerous leaves remain hidden within every sprouting leaf of banana; The words of saints carry within them so many hidden messages benign.‟ Ghatwale Baba had told just a simple thing, but that went on to relieve Shastriji of his headache forever.
A mere passing reference from a saint did prove to be a veritable boon for Shastriji.
