The first thing that man asks for is always physical and mental health. With any religion or master, the first utility that man looks for is “good health”. Only when good health is given, does he look further into fulfilling his deeper longings. Since time immemorial, all religions and all masters have demonstrated healing powers. Even in tribal villages, the religion followed will have healing as its core. In fact, no master is accepted as a master if he cannot restore health in people in some form or the other. Healing has beome a measure of a master’s identity.
What exactly is healing?
According to Apollonis of Tyana, a Greek philosopher, he said “Pythagoras said that the most divine art was that of healing. And if the healing art is most divine, it must occupy itself with the soul as well as the body, for no creature can be sound so long as the higher part in it is sickly.”
