Vaidya Vyas, an esteemed doctor of Maharishi Ayurveda health care from India, continued to describe the value of Smriti (memory) in Maharishi Ayurveda. In a recent presentation at Maharishi Vedic University, the Netherlands, Vaidya Vyas discussed what one can do to promote good memory.

What can we do for good memory?
According to Vaidya Vyas, some of the main factors for improving memory* are:
∙ Practising the Transcendental Meditation Technique, the greatest and most important tool, which supports all other factors for good memory.
∙ Balanced, Sattvic (pure) diet, with special emphasis on foods that support the nervous system and memory, such as ghee (clarified organic butter), sesame, almonds and other nuts, and milk.
∙ Sleep, especially going to sleep before 10 pm (6 to 10 pm). There is an urge to sleep at this time, and one should not block it—it is a gateway for creating Ojas (finest product of digestion and metabolism; that which connects mind and body) in the system.
∙ Rasayanas—these special herbal preparations are most helpful when used in conjunction with the other measures.
∙ Maintaining balanced Agnis (digestive and metabolic fires) so no dullness or imbalance accumulates.
∙ Aromatherapy. Since anger has been highlighted as a cause of loss of memory, we can especially use calming natural organic scents (visit: VedAroma.com) such as coriander, spikenard, vetiver and sandal (but also scents that increase bliss and thereby help reduce anger, such as rose and jasmine); also scents that increase detachment, such as frankincense, myrrh and cedar, but also sandal, basil and juniper. These can be applied to the top of the head and on the forehead. (Another recent Global Good News article features Vaidya Vyas commenting on Vedic aromatherapy.)
* In addition to general guidelines such as those given by Vaidya Vyas, consultations are offered at Maharishi Ayurveda health centres in many countries (click here for a partial list), through which one can gain specific knowledge and recommendations to enhance health and address particular imbalances in the physiology.
