A class loved by all:

The lotus always seemed such an exotic plant, not one I ever thought to have in my yard. After Acharya Shunya’s class on the many medicinal uses of the lotus, I now have a lotus plant and it has been thriving for over a year. From the class I learned that by making a simple lotus tea from the petals or leaves relieves the body of heat (pitta disturbance). So many healing qualities of this beautiful plant that represents abundance now lives in my home.

I am a caregiver for my mother. We have tried medicines and ointments for neuropathic pain. After viewing this video, I was deeply inspired and made a healing oil with warm sesame oil, and lotus root (rhizome). I have been applying that on her legs, lower back and hands, for about 2 weeks. Yes, pain and tingling are present - but intermittent relief IS beginning to appear. My mother’s mobility has improved and she reports that the “intensity of the tingling is less”. What is truly magical is the joy and energy she is experiencing in addition to improvement with her health. I can see Lotus and the Universe conspiring to heal my mother. Thank you Shunyaji and Sanjaiji for this video and helping us!
