6 Reasons To #Try a #Copper #Water #Vessel

Copper is considered an essential mineral for our body.  Ayurveda recommends storing water overnight in a copper jug and drinking it first thing in the morning for maintaining good health.  The water stored this way is called ‘Tamra Jal’ and it helps to balance all three doshas (Kapha, Vata and Pitta.) The metal copper has electromagnetic energy which is called Prana Shakti. Drinking water that is stored for 8-10 hours in a copper vessel is very beneficial.  Copper makes the water ionic which helps to maintain body’s pH (acid-alkaline) balance.

 6 Great Benefits of Copper!

1.  It’s antimicrobial!
“Antimicrobial copper surfaces in intensive care units (ICU) kill 97% of bacteria that can cause hospital-acquired infections,” resulting in a 40% reduction in the risk of acquiring an infection.

2.  It’s a great brain stimulant.
Our brain works by transmitting impulses from one neuron to another through an area known as the synapses. These neurons are covered by a sheath called the myelin sheath that acts like a sort of conductive agent – helping the flow of impulses.

3.  It aids in weight loss.
If diet just doesn’t seem to be helping you lose weight, try drinking water stored in a copper vessel on a regular basis.  Apart from fine tuning your digestive system to perform better, copper also helps your body break down fat and eliminate it more efficiently. 

4.  It slows down aging. 
If you are worried about the appearance of fine lines, copper is  natural remedy!  Packed with very strong anti-oxidant and cell forming properties, copper fights off free radicals – one of the main reasons for the formation of fine lines – and helps in the production of new and healthy skin cells that replace old dying ones.

5.  Copper has anti-inflammatory properties and helps in arthritis and other inflammatory pains.
This asset is especially great to relieve aches and pains caused due to inflamed joints. In addition to that, copper also has bone and immune system strengthening properties, making it the perfect remedy for arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

6.  It can fight off cancer.  
Copper has very strong antioxidant properties that helps fight off free radicals and negate their ill effects – one of the main reasons for the development of cancer.  According to the Cancer Society the exact mechanism of how copper helps prevent the onset of cancer is still not known but some studies have shown that copper complexes have a considerable anti-cancer effect.

How to keep a Copper Water Vessel? 

Copper oxidizes naturally and needs to be cleaned at regular intervals. Traditional methods of cleaning copper include rubbing the copper with a mixture of salt and tamarind paste or fresh lemon juice. If not lime, try salt or baking soda and vinegar to clean it.  Allow your water to remain in the jug overnight or at least 8 hours for best effects.  In the morning, enjoy a daily dosage of energized water.
No wonder our ancestors had copper vessels for drinking water. And don’t you think they had lived longer and healthier than their modern aqua-filtering counterparts! A debate may be on, but again, copper water is definitely good for all of us.

Ganga River System in India

The Ganga river system consists of the master river Ganga and a large number of its tributaries. This system drains a very large area comprising the middle part of the Himalayas in the north, the northern part of the Indian Plateau in the south and the Ganga Plain in-between. The total area of the Ganga basin in India is 861,404 sq km which accounts for 26.3 per cent of the geographical area of the country.

This basin is shared by ten states. These states are Uttaranchal and Uttar Pradesh (34.2%), Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh (23.1%), Bihar and Jharkhand (16.7%), Rajasthan (13.0%), West Bengal (8.3%), Haryana (4.0%) and Himachal Pradesh (0.5%). The Union Territory of Delhi accounts for 0.2% of the total area of the Ganga Basin.

The Ganga originates as Bhagirathi from the Gangotri glacier in Uttar Kashi District of Uttaranchal at an elevation of 7,010 m. Alaknanda joins it at Devaprayag. But before Devaprayag it reached, the Pindar, the Mandakini, the Dhauliganga and the Bishenganga rivers pour into the Alaknanda and the Bheling flows into the Bhagirathi.

happiness

Who is Happy ???

A Crow Lived in the Forest and was absolutely satisfied in life.

But one day he saw a swan…
This swan is so white and I am so black…crow thought.

This swan must be the happiest bird in the world.

He expressed his thoughts to the swan.
“Actually,” the swan replied,

“I was feeling that I was the happiest bird around until I saw a parrot, which has two colors.
I now think the parrot is the happiest bird in creation.”

The crow then approached the parrot.
The parrot explained,
“I lived a very happy life—until I saw a peacock.
I have only two colors, but the peacock has multiple colors.”

The crow then visited a peacock in the zoo and saw that hundreds of people had gathered to see him.

After the people had left,
The crow approached the Peacock..

Dear Peacock,
You are so beautiful.
Every day thousands of people come to see you.
When people see me,
they immediately shoo me away.
I think you are the happiest bird on the planet.

The peacock replied,
I always thought that I was the most beautiful and happy bird on the planet.
But because of my beauty,
I am entrapped in this zoo.

I have examined the zoo very carefully, and I have realized that the crow is the only bird not kept in a cage.

So for past few days I have been thinking that if I were a crow,
I could happily roam everywhere.

That’s our problem too.

We make unnecessary comparison with others and become sad.

We don’t value what has God given us.
This all leads to the vicious cycle of unhappiness.

Value the things god has given us.

Learn the secret of being happy and discard the comparison which leads only to unhappiness..

Why Gangajal Holy Water from Ganga is poured on Shivling in the Month of Shravan?

shivling-abhishekMillions of Hindu devotees visit Shiva temples in the Hindi month of Shravan in North India and offer Gangajal, or holy water from River Ganga, to Lord Shiva. The water is used to bath Shivling at temples, sacred places and in homes. Shrawan Month, also referred as Saawan, is dedicated to Lord Shiva and the Mondays, or Somwar, in the month are considered highly auspicious.

The famous Samudra Manthan (churning of ocean) episode in Hinduism took place in the Shravan month and among the things that came out during the churning was 14 types of rubies. Gods (Devas) and demons (Asuras) who were churning the ocean distributed 13 rubies among them. The 14th ruby was the poison called ‘halahal’ and it had the power to destroy all the living beings. Lord Shiva drank ‘halahal’ to save the world and it was stored in his throat and from this day Lord Shiva came to be known as Neelkanth.

To reduce the effect of poison ‘halahal’ on Shiva all the Devas that were witnessing the Samudra Manthan poured Gangajal on Shiva. This tradition is even today continued in most of the major temples dedicated to Lord Shiva. This ritual is widely performed in the Shravan month in North India by Hindu devotees.

It is widely believed that Lord Shiva blesses those who bath him in holy water from River Ganga. Kanwarias in large number visit Shiva shrines like Baba Baidyanath Dham in Deoghar and Kashi Vishwanath Temple in the month.

We are the Uttarkashi Mineral Corporation, is the only company duly licensed, approved and authorized by Uttarakhand Government, to pack the holy Gangajal in its purest form. From drawing of Gangajal from the sacred river Ganges till packing, Gangajal is kept untouched from human hands.
