Dear Smt sheela Belur

In this matter I'm reminded of what my guru Sri Rangapriya
Swami used to say.He would quote Kalidasa's line from
Kumara sambhavam: "SarIra-mAdyam khalu dharma sAdhanam".
One's body is the first and ultimate instrument do good in
this life.Hence like any other instrument it should always
be kept in a totally workable condition.So whatever cure
is needed is automatically included.I suppose one could
draw a line at those rejuvenation treatments (at Kerala ?)
which some people go for.In any case no such treatment has
been known to put forward the moment of death.
