Herbs are considered to be the first life forms that came into existence. So, they represent a passing exponent from the substance without life to what we call beings endowed with life.

That is why they represent many and mysterious manifestations of life on all its levels (physical, unsubstantial, astral, mental, and even spiritual level), in forms that seem rudimentary to us.

Extensive studies have proved the vision of the Eastern sages that: “Everything is spirit”.

Plants, just like a human being, are endowed with a “subtle, energetic body”. When a human being adequately assimilates the subtle aspects from the energetic body of herbs, they encounter deep beneficialial changes in their subtle, energetic body.

This subtle awakening appears only when the plants are not expired (they are no more than 2 years old) and when they are used without being boiled or heat up.

Exposure to high temperatures alters and even destroys the herb’s subtle energetic field. Beneficial plants were endowed by God with energetic structures that compensate for any unbalanced in the human structure.

When a healthy human being adequately uses certain herbs, they can have remarkable results, greater than their common abilities. One of these remarkable results is the awakening and amplification of the ability to transmute and sublimate the sexual, creative potential.

An important challenge for one in search for spiritual accomplishment is to transmute and sublimate the sexual, creative potential into superior energetic forms.

Transmutation and sublimation imply to transform the sexual secretions (sperm for men and menstrual liquid for women) into energy. This energy is directed towards the higher levels of the being, thus becoming willing, emotional, mental, or spiritual energy.

This way, what the human being used to “throw away”, becomes an extraordinary source of energy that amazingly amplifies his abilities.

It is exactly like an atomic factory which produces energy enabling many sophisticated activities to be performed.

The more this sexual, creative potential is transmuted and sublimated to higher levels, the more our latent abilities are awakened (abilities that common people consider miraculous and paranormal) and the more rapid our spiritual evolution becomes.

There are certain yoga techniques (body postures (asanas), mudras, pranayama, meditation techniques) that, if practiced with perseverance, will result in better and better transmutation and sublimation of the sexual, creative potential.

The systematic use of certain beneficialial herbs is welcome when this process is difficult. The beneficialial herbs purify and harmonize the physical and subtle structure of the human being.

They also have a catalytic action on the transmutation into energy of the sexual, creative potential and on its sublimation to certain higher levels, according to the particularity of the herb used.

We shall now introduce some beneficialial herbs using their common name, their botanic name, the part that should be used and the best quantity.

These herbs purify the physical and subtle body and open the subtle channels through which energy flows (nadis).

That is why they have a preparatory role and must be used in the first stage of the systematic program for transmuting and sublimating the creative potential.
