“YATUDHANYA” MENTIONED IN VEDAS AND DEADLY VIRUSES HARMING HUMAN


SRI GURUBHYO NAMAH SRI PARAMA GURUBHYO NAMAH

SRI PARAMESHTHI GURUBHYO NAMAH

The globe is threatened by a deadly CORONA virus. Such a deadly goblins / evil spirits are mentioned in the Vedas.

There is a reference of “Yatudhana” in 104 th Sukta in Rigveda 7 th Mandala  as well 87 th Sukta in 10 th Mandala.

There is also reference in first anuvaka in Rudra Namaka reads as  “अध्यवोचदधि वक्ता प्रथमो दैव्यो भिषक् । अहीश्च सर्वाञ्जंभयन्त्सर्वाश्च यातुधान्यः” ॥ १-६॥ adhyavocadadhi vaktā prathamo daivyo bhiṣak । ahīśca sarvāñjaṃbhayantsarvāśca yātudhānyaḥ ॥ 1-6॥

These Yatudhanas are not just demons but they are said to be a kind of goblins or evil spirits.  The above mantra in Rudra Namaka address Rudra as BISHAK, that is Physician and prayers are offered to him to relieve us from these goblins.

These Yatudhanas are described as  goblins/ evil spirits who lives on human blood and flesh. They are said to be active in evenings as well in the night. That is to say that they are active in low temperature in the environment. They are destroyed by the FIRE, that is by the hot temperature.  This description of YATUDHANA very well matches with the VIRUSES causing harm to human.

It is said that the diseases are treated, untimely death as well  the trouble  that may be created by these YATUDHANAS can be prevented by chanting or listening to 1 st  Anuvaka in RUDRA NAMAKA.  The same results can be obtained by chanting / listening to 6 th Mantra in first Anuvaka

‘adhyavocadadhi vaktā prathamo daivyo bhiṣak ।

ahīśca sarvāñjaṃbhayantsarvāśca yātudhānyaḥ ॥ 1-6॥

Going by these descriptions, I share my view that by chanting / Listening to this Mantra, one can escape from the attack of VIRUSES.

I am sharing here the PDF file of 87 th Sukta in 10 the Mandala of Rigveda. I am also sharing Youtube video of the chanting of first Anuvaka of RUDRA NAMAKA as well chanting 108 times the 6 th Mantra in the same Anuvaka.

On some other occasion I shall try to explain the Sayana Bhashya for 87 th Sukta in 10 th Mandala of Rigveda where Yatudhanas are mentioned repeatedly.
