Sanathana Sai Sanjeevini Healing Fragrances (also known as the SS-Sanjeevinis or Sai Sanjeevinis or Sanjeevinis) is a prayer based system of Spiritual Healing. Before trying to explain what the system is and how it works it would be appropriate to explain what the name of the system - Sanathana Sai Sanjeevini Healing Fragrances - means, and what it is meant to signify.

One of the Holy Books of India, is the Ramayana, which tells us the story of Lord Rama. In this Holy narrative, during the final battle between Lord Rama and the evil forces (commanded by Ravana), Laxmana, the younger brother of the Lord, was fatally wounded. Lord Hanuman (the deity with the form of a monkey) was charged with the responsibility of bringing by day-break the herb called MrutSanjeevi, which, as the name signifies, brings back the dead. This herb was to be found on a hill near Mount Kailash deep in the Himalayas.   

Lord Hanuman flew swiftly over sea and land (the battle was taking place in Lanka), but alas! when He reached the designated hill, He could not recognise the healing herb. Since nothing is impossible for our Worshipful Hero, He picked up the entire hill and flew back with it! As soon as the FRAGRANCE of the Mrutsanjeevi reached Laxmana and all those dead on the battlefield, he and the others came alive!

Sanjeevini signifies eternal health at the physical, mental and emotional level and symbolises the Eternal Knowledge of Liberation (Immortality) at the spiritual level.                                                                                 

Healing of any kind is possible only with the Grace of the  Lord - what we can do is - serve. In a spirit of total surrender, when seva (service) is offered at the Lotus Feet of the Lord, WE are purified. Maanava seva is truly Madhava seva. But, surrender is the key word if our seva is to be truly "Nishkama" (without desiring the fruit i.e. motiveless). In the course of thus serving the Lord's Creation, Eternal Knowledge flows - and thus we pray that the dual (physical and spiritual) purpose of the "Sanjeevini healing fragrances" will be served.

Hanumanji of course, is the "Presiding Deity" of this system. He is the ideal Servant of God, the ideal Devotee of God and following from this, the ideal "role model" that we so desperately need in today's environment.

Sanathana is a Sanskrit word meaning "valid for all time" or "timeless". There is present within each one of us THAT Sanathana Energy which is the cause of all cures. This Energy, this Shakthi is lying dormant within each one of us. Only when this Shakthi is awakened, can true healing take place. For this, more than anything else, the mind of man has to revert to its pristine purity. This can only be achieved if we live by "Sanathana" values i.e. Compassion, Love, Tolerance, Forbearance, Self-sacrifice, Faith, Non-Violence, Righteousness, Truth and above all Contentment (which is exemplified by surrender-in-action through the unshakeable faith that "Thy Will be Done").

Sai means "Divine Mother"- that Shakthi, that Cosmic Power, that God Power, which is the Knower of All, the Moving Force behind All, and the Doer of All in this Creation.

The Sanathana Sai Sanjeevini Healing Fragrances are therefore focussed prayers to the Divine Mother, in total surrender, to awaken the timeless healing force within each one of us.
