Many of my friends and visitors frequently ask wny I name this site as healthy-ojas and what it means?
Ojas is a Sanskrit word means "vigor." Ojas is the first thing formed in the body. Once ojas destroyed, the human being will perish.
Ojas has a color of ghee, taste of honey, and smell of fried paddy.
Ojas refers to the essential energy responsible for vitality, immunity, strength, maintain youthfulness, radiance, and psycho-emotional resiliency.
Healthy vital energy (ojas) is required to maintain health or to recover lost health. Thus I named this domain as healthy-ojas.
Ojas depletion may be due to faulty digestion, as well as living a life filled with excess stress and other unhealthy activity. Thus improving digestion and changing to a healthy lifestyle help to improve/increase your ojas (vital energy).
