CHENNAI: It was only after watching the Tamil film 7am Arivu that many people learnt about ‘bodhi dharman’, his Tamil roots and all the contributions he has done in the field of martial arts and medicine. Although, no movie has been made yet, to explain the inception of the healing process called ‘Astro-reflex therapy’, one man has been trying to bring this to the masses. The healing method, said to be founded by Gautama Buddha, somehow vanished, before it even got to the masses. Maxwell Jude, who has been practicing this healing process for the last 27 years, will be conducting a healing camp in the city on September 17.
“The only evidence of Gautama Buddha’s science of healing was in the form of coins of the Kuninda Kingdom in the Himalayas. Bhogar Munivar (one of the 18 siddhas of traditional siddha medicine), describes it in his writings (Varma Cutiram). He talks about the organisation of man’s body and mind, and the presence of a divine plan. And I want to pass on this knowledge to the masses,” explains Maxwell.
According to the science of Astro-reflex therapy, a human’s body and mind revolves around and is interrelated with the physical sun and the 12 zodiac signs. It is believed that the body is hence affected by an inner and an outer universe.
“The teachings focus on the cosmic order (Tempo). It can be understood by the Chi-I (earthly position), which explains where one is positioned. Once you know where you are positioned, you use the Chi (wisdom) to regulate the In Yo (Yin and Yang). Now there is also something called as the Kyo Jitsu, which is the weaknesses and strengths within a person — this is a result of the past incarnations and unfulfilled desires. And finally Tai, the body techniques performed by the healer to understand the earthly positions and cosmic order of the patient to study his or her condition and then heal them accordingly. Hence aligning the body with the true self (Shin),” explains Maxwell.
He adds that the zodiac signs play a role in the bodily functioning of a person. “In this healing, it is believed that each of the zodiac has given birth to a particular organ — Aries (lung), Taurus (large intestine), Gemini (Stomach), Cancer (spleen), Leo (heart), Virgo (small intestine), Libra (urinary bladder), Scorpio (kidney), Sagittarius (pericardium), Capricorn (triple heater-governs the body temperature), Aquarius (gall bladder), Pisces (liver).”
The first-of-its-kind camp in the city, will focus on teaching and also treating people. Astro-reflex therapy focuses on all the aspects of a person before determining, analysing and healing. “Almost a year back, I got a call from Anuradha in Bengaluru. She was unable to conceive, which further resulted in domestic issues and so on. The doctors were unable to identify the problem with the couple. I learnt about her and the energy around her and shared with her the yogic techniques of copulation. Believe me or not, she had a beautiful baby boy, who must be around six months old now,” he smiles.
The camp will be conducted on Sep 17 at Mylapore. For details call 9841424981
