Title: Offering medicines
User: Swami Gaurangapada Date: 2006-08-07 12:23:00
Do I have to offer medicines to the Lord before taking them?†† 17/12 23:13:57
Answer by Swami Gaurangapada:
Ayurvedic, homeopathic and naturopathic supplements are perfectly alright to be taken but you can chant the Holy Names while taking them since in Ayurveda it is said that the medicines get potency to cure from the Holy Names.†
Even the allopathic medicines are ok in emergency times when we need to have instant relief. There is no need to offer them to the Lord before taking but just make sure that you take them while chanting the Holy Names of Nityananda, Gauranga and Hare Krishna.
