HomeSeptember 2023Garlic and sandalwood



During his lifetime, BABUJI shared a wealth of knowledge to his associates about the simple natural remedies that he learned and also discovered during his life in northern India. This month we share his thoughts on garlic and sandalwood.1

Babuji highly recommended his associates to eat two to three pieces of garlic every day. In the last few years of his life, Babuji used to say “Garlic is not copper, not gold, not silver; it is diamond.”

Babuji felt that the sandalwood tree (Chandan) was useful for many things besides its aromatherapy. He said that the older the tree, the greater the benefits. Its benefits increase from generation to generation, that is, they are passed to the next generation.
