Health and Disease in Man

The attainment and maintenance of perfect health is the intelligent personís supreme material preoccupation. Health is the greatest physical necessity for every human being. Yet, despite the progress of modern science, the incidence of such diseases as leprosy, cancer, diabetes, hypertension and heart disease, and the mortality from them, tend to increase. More and larger hospitals, asylums and prisons are continually having to be built. How is this pressing problem, which now besets the whole human Race, to be solved? What are the fundamental laws governing health and well-being, and in what way is humanity so continually violating them that a perfectly and continually healthy individual is a rarity? How may health be defined? This talk looks at the cause of disease from both the medical and occult viewpoints and discusses the vital influence of mind and emotion in health and disease. The occult anatomy of man is considered, as are the roles played by the chakras, etheric double and prana in health and disease.

 

This talk by our Hon. Secretary, Sis. Lily Chong, will help us further understand the physical vehicle of man and the importance of perfect health for spiritual growth. Indeed, perfect health is a prerequisite for spiritual quest
