The Seasons, Grishma (May-July), Varsha (July-Sept) & Hemant (Nov-Jan) have too much Heat, Rain & Cold. The time periods between them, which is known as the normal time, or the Sadharana Kala, the Doshas may be, should be, cleared out. 

Seasons and Your Married Life:  

During Hemant (and Shishir) (Winters), a person may do it even more than optimum!; With proper use of Aphrodisiacs, once in 3 days, in Vasanta (Spring) & Sharad (Autumn); and, once in a fortnight, in Varsha (Rainy) and Grishma (Summers).

Good memory, Intelligence, Long Life, Health, Nourishment, Optimum functioning of the sense organs, strength, slow ageing, is gained from the disciplined Sex.

Giddiness, Exhaustion, weakness in the legs, Depletion of Tissues, Loss of optimum functioning of the Senses, Premature Death; All this  occurs by overindulgence.

Sharing is Caring!

My Research on Ancient (But Highly Intelligent & Advanced) Studies-Ayurveda & So Called Modern Studies (!!) has brought me literally back from Dead! Quit my sailing job in 2009 due Serious Medical Conditions (Severe Vision Loss, Severe Haemorrhoids, Severe Depression...), But few incidences (Rajiv Dixit CD's, Fatal Ailments Getting Cured at High End Ayurveda Ashrams, Khongress Leaders Going to Ayurveda Ashram!!!!!!!) Prompted me towards 'Dedicated & Devoted Studies of The Greatest (Ancient-Original) Medical Science-Ayurveda'.
