Pandava — the five pious Kshatriya brothers — Yudhistira, Bhima, Arjuna, Nakula, and Sahadeva — devotees of Lord a Krishna, inherited the leadership of the world upon their victory over the Kurus (opposing forces) in the battle of Kurukshetra, as documented in the great epic, the Mahabharata.
This formula has been given the name ‘Panch Pandava’, because the essential oils of each of the five plants that combine in this well known recipe have proven their power to increase immunity due to their antiviral, antiseptic, antibacterial, and anti-infective properties.
In the Plant Kingdom, these five have demonstrated their innate intelligence, sophistication, and power — gaining victory by overcoming the multiple virulent bacteria, the micro-organisms challenging balance in the fine fields of Nature’s functioning.
AIn the Vedic Tradition Lord Krishna is upheld as one of ten Avatar—ten qualities of the Cosmic Creative Intelligence responsible for upholding and maintaining balance and order in the universe. The Vedic Texts highlight the intimate relationship between individual life and Cosmic Life: ‘Yatha Pinde Tatha Brahmande’. As is the Atom, so is the universe; as is the body, so is the Cosmic body.
