Parvala / Vidruma (Coral) - The Astrological and Ayurvedic View

Introduction

Coral is a marine life called an Anthozoan polyp. According to zoology, it is coralliferous zoophytes. Druma is a tree and the prefix ‘vi’ in Vidruma suggests the peculiarity, in the sense that it is a peculiar tree grown in water. Corals also breed sexually by spawning polyps of the same species that release gametes simultaneously throughout one to several nights around a full moon. Pravala is of 4 types by color and creeds and the red color of Pravala is considered best. Using stinging cells on their tentacles, Pravala / Corals can catch small fish and plankton. Most Pravala / corals obtain most of their energy and nutrients from zooxanthellae, photosynthetic unicellular algae living within the coral’s tissue. Such Pravala requires sunlight and grows in clear, shallow water, typically at depths shallower than 60 meters (200 ft). Corals can be major contributors to the physical structure of the coral reefs that develop in tropical and subtropical waters, such as the enormous Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Queensland, Australia. It is said that these species are attached continuously that appear like a plant/tree shape. The hardening process of Pravala from the soft stage to ripened condition is divided into 3 stages. Zoontheria, Rugosa, Alcyonaria. Formation of Pravala is seen abundantly in the Central Pacific Ocean, Indian Ocean, Persian Gulf, Red Sea, Shores of Zanzibar, Madagascar, Mauritius, Gulf of Panama, Brazil, West Indies, Florida, Bermuda, etc. The fringing variety of coral reefs is generally seen near the islands while the barrier type of reefs is seen away from the shores of the Islands. The longest variety of coral reefs is available in the form of coral mountains on the Australian coasts which are called The Great Barrier Reef. Italian and Japanese corals are abundantly available in the gem markets. According to the astrological sign, the people with Mars (Mangal) in a particular position in the horoscope can wear Coral to get maximum benefits. Pravala/ Coral Stone represents the Greha Mangala/ planet Mars. Parvala is very special and very popular among the Navratnas. Pravala gives immense energy to the person. Most corals are red, bluish, and white. The surface of these coral’s branches has distinctive patterns made by the original skeleton like wood grain or stripped.

Coral is known by various names in Sanskrit like Pravalaka, Pravala, Bhoum Ratna, Vidruma, Latamani, Rakta Kanda, RaktangaAbdhi Jantu Vishesho, etc.

History of Vidruma / Pravala (Coral)

Like Mukta, Indians also know about coral from very ancient times. In Shrimad Bhagwat, Mahabharata, etc. coral is mentioned in many places. Coral has been used in medicine at many places in Charaka Samhita. This is the representative gem of Mars. Coral is the dead body of a particular marine animal. These animals live their lives in shallow seas. Animals die when the amount of lime in the organism increases excessively, and the same dead body is called coral. Medicinally, the best coral is obtained in the form of pink-colored porous dried thick blocks. Which are the branches of coral. Coral is also available in white or beige black color. Pearl-like coral is also calcium carbonate. Chemically, it is also a compound of calcium, carbon, and oxygen. Pink coral is counted in gems. Which features: Found in the islands of the Mediterranean. Coral is produced in the shallow sea by water animals called anthozoan polyps. This animal is porous like a ring. Due to the presence of some part of lime in seawater, animals drink seawater to run their life journey. Then some amount of lime goes inside them. In this way, by drinking seawater every day, part of the lime gets absorbed into the body. When the amount of lime in their body becomes more. So, all those water animals being about to die, in a certain way, crores of insects gather in one place. When collected, their shape becomes like a tree. Due to this, the coral tree continues to grow on the ocean floor through its branches.

 

Corals (Pravala) are marine animals in class Anthozoa of phylum Cnidaria typically living in compact colonies of many identical individual “polyps” The group includes the important reef builders that inhabit ‘tropical oceans’ and secrete calcium carbonate (CaCO3) to form a hard skeleton. A Pravala Shira/  coral “head” is a colony of myriad genetically identical polyps and each polyp is a spineless animal typically only a few millimeters in diameter and a few centimeters in length. A set of tentacles surround a central mouth opening. An exoskeleton is excreted near the base. Over many generations, the colony thus creates a large skeleton that is characteristic of the species. Individual heads grow by asexual reproduction of polyps. Corals also breed sexually by spawning polyps of the same species that release gametes simultaneously throughout one to several nights around a full moon.

 

Using stinging cells on their tentacles, Pravala/ Corals can catch small fish and plankton. Most Pravala/ corals obtain the majority of their energy and nutrients from zooxanthellae, which is photosynthetic unicellular algae that live within the coral’s tissue. Such Pravala requires sunlight and grows in clear, shallow water, typically at depths shallower than 60 meters (200 ft). Corals can be major contributors to the physical structure of the coral reefs that develop in tropical and subtropical waters, such as the enormous Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Queensland, Australia.

 

Other corals do not have associated algae and can live in much deeper water, with the cold-water genus Lophelia surviving as deep as 3,000 meters (9,800 ft). Examples live on the Darwin Mounds located northwest of Cape Wrath, Scotland. Pravala has also been found off the coast of the United States in Washington State and the Aleutian Islands in Alaska. Coral’s many colors give it appeal for necklaces and other jewelry. Intensely ‘red coral’ is prized as a gemstone. Sometimes called ‘fire coral’, it is not the same as fire coral. Because of overharvesting, red coral is very rare.   

 

भारतीयों को मुक्ता की तरह प्रवाल का भी ज्ञान अति प्राचीन काल से है। श्रीमदभागवत, महाभारत आदि में धारणार्थ प्रवाल का अनेक स्थानों पर  उल्लेख मिलता है। चरक संहिता में अनेक स्थानों पर प्रवाल का चिकित्सा में प्रयोग  किया गया है। यह मंगलग्रह का प्रतिनिधि रत्न है।  प्रवाल एक समुद्री जन्तु विशेष का  मृत शरीर होता है। छिछले समुद्रों में ये जन्तु अपना जीवन यापन करते है। जीव शरीर  में चूने की मात्रा अत्यधिक बढ़ जाने पर जन्तु मर जाते है और वही मृत शरीर प्रवाल  कहलाता है। | औषधार्थ श्रेष्ठ प्रवाल गुलाबी रंग का छिद्रयुक्त सुषिर मोटे खंडो  के रूप में प्राप्त होता है। जो प्रवाल की शाखायें होती है। प्रवाल श्वेत या मटमैले कृष्णवर्ण का भी उपलब्ध होता है। मुक्ता सदृश प्रवाल भी कैल्शियम काबोनिट है। रासायनिक द्ष्टि से यह भी कैल्शियम, कार्बन एवं ऑक्सीजन का यौगिक है। रत्नो  में गुलाबी वर्ण के प्रवाल की गणना होती है। जो विशेषतें: भूमध्यसागर के द्वीपों में पाया जाता है। प्रवाल की उत्पत्ति छिछले समुद्र में एन्थेजोअन पॉलिप्स नामक जलजन्तुओं द्वारा होती है। यह जन्तु अँगूठी की तरह सछिद्र होता है। समुद्री जल में कुछ अंश चूने का होने के कारण जन्तु अपनी जीवन यात्रा चलाने के लिए समुद्री जल पीते है। तब उनके अन्दर चूने की कुछ मात्रा चली जाती है। इस प्रकार प्रतिदिन समुद्री जल पीने से चूने का अंश उनके शरीर में अवशोषित होने लगता है। जब उनके शरीर में चूने की मात्र अधिक हो जाती है। तो वे सभी जलजन्तु मरणासन्न होकर निश्चित रीति से करोडो कीट एक स्थान पर एकत्रित हो जाते है। एकत्रित होने पर उनकी आकृति वृक्ष जैसी हो जाती है। जिससे उसके शाखा प्रशाखाओं द्वारा समुद्रतल में प्रवाल वृक्ष बढ़ते रहता है।

Pravala / Moonga / Vidruma Aayu (Lifespan of Coral)

Reference: Rasa Jala Niddhi. 3/ 4, Ratna Dhatu Vigyana

न जरां यान्ति रत्नानि मौक्तिकं विद्रुमं बिना।

 

Though the gemstones of mineral origin are eternal, the Exception is Mukta (pearl) which has a limited lifespan, and also Vidruma- coral. After a few years, it grows old and eventually loses its character, but other gemstones are eternal, but they also need to be maintained and revitalization of them is necessary to get maximum benefits.

 

आयु- कुछ समय पश्चात्‌ काल प्रभाव से प्रवाल खराब हो जाते है। किन्तु अन्य रत्नों पर काल का प्रभाव नहीं होता है।

Pravala Aayu after Dharana (Lifespan of Coral after Assumption)

Reference: Astrologer Prakasha Prasada-Jyotish Evam Sadhna Parkasha

 

Ratna gives maximum benefits when they have a powerful life expectancy. A lot is dependent on how much you care about your coral as they need to be maintained to remain effective. The average effectiveness of Coral is approximately 3- 4 years, but we can again revitalize the coral.

 

As Pravala is Gem for the planet Mars (Mangal) and its life span after assumption is approximately 3- 4 years after that it loses its Prabhava on the beholder.

Occurrence or Places of Availability of Pravala / Vidruma (Coral)

Most precious coral is found in warm waters. Japanese coral is red, pink, or white and is also found on the Mediterranean and African coasts of the West Indies, Australia, and the Pacific Island.

 

प्राप्तिस्थानप्रवाल केवल समुद्र में ही मिलता है। इटली, स्पेन, आस्ट्रेलिया, अल्जिरिया, फ्रांस, मैक्सिको, और ट्यूनिस आदि देश (के समुद्रों मे प्रवाल मिलता है) इसके लिए प्रसिद्ध है। भारतीय समुद्रों में प्रवाल नहीं मिलता है | छिछले समुद्रों में होने वाली लता जातीय प्राणी की शाखा को बाहर निकालसुखाकर प्रवाल संज्ञा दी जाती है। यह पतलीछोटीमोटी शलाकाकृति, लाल एवं टेढ़ामेढ़ा द्रव्य है। प्रवाल की उत्पत्ति छिछले समुद्र में जल जन्तुओं द्वार होती है। इनमें एंथोजोआ पोलिप्स  नामक प्राणी ही मुख्य  रूप से है। यह जन्तु अंगूठी की तरह सछिद्र  होता है। समुद्री जल में कुछ अंश चूने का होता है। वे जन्तु अपनी जीवन यात्रा चलाने हेतु जब समुद्री जल पी लेते, हैं तब उनके अन्दर चूने की कुछ मात्रा चली जाती है, इसी तरह रोज समुद्री जल पीने से चूने का अंश उनके शरीर के अन्दर शोषित होने लगता है और जब उनके शरीर में चुने की मात्रा अधिक हो जाती है तो वे सभी जन्तुएँ मरणासन्न होकर निश्चित रीति से करोड़ों कीडे एक स्थान पर बैठते हैं। बैठने के बाद उनको आकृति वृक्षलता जैसी होती है और पुन: उसमें नया जीवन संचार  हो जाता है। हर क्षण अरबों कीडे वहाँ पर नियत आकृति में बैठते रहते हैं जिससे उसके शाखों: द्वारा समुद्र तल में प्रवाल वृक्ष बढते रहता है। आज इटली के समुद्र, भू मध्यसागर, अफ्रिका  समुद्र, एवं यूरोपीय समुद्रों में मीलों तक प्रवाल वृक्ष , प्रवाल चट्टान आदि से भरा पड़ा है।

How Parvala / Vidruma / Moonga / Coral is formed?

Although many types of animals make coral, among them, insects called Anthozoa polyps are predominant. This animal is round, porous, and polypoidal like a ring. Its presence is in the oceans with warm water. Its female insects lay crores of eggs simultaneously. Those insects lie in the seawater and at a favorable place (like a bee-bee sits) they sit holding each other with their legs and become trees and spread in the sea. The worms at the bottom die and keep getting converted into lime. Coral is the bone remains of an animal. The tree of coral is porous, because of which it is saturated with water from which it is nourished. The root of coral is like a beehive. Its color is red and white lime is filled in between.

 

प्रवाल निर्माण

 

यद्यपि प्रवाल बनाने वाले अनेक प्रकार के जंतु है तथापि  उनमें से एन्थोजोआँ पालिप्स नामक कीडा प्रधान हैं। यह जंतु अंगूठी की तरह गोल, सछिद्र एवं बहुपादी है। इसकी उपस्थिति उष्ण जल वाले समुन्द्रों में होती है | इसकी स्त्री  कीडे एक साथ करोड़ों अण्डे देती है। वे कीड़े समुंद्री जल में पड़े रहते है और अनुकूल स्थान पर (मधुमक्खी जैसी बैठती है उसी तरह) वे कीड़े एक पर एक अपने  पैरो से पकड कर बैठते हैं और वृक्षाकृति होकर समुद्र में फैल जाते है | नीचे के कीड़े मर जाते है और चूना के रूप में परिवर्तित होते रहते है | जंतु की अस्थि अवशेष ही  प्रवाल है। प्रवाल का वृक्ष सछिद्र होता है उसी से जल का सच्चर होता है जिस से उसका  पोषण होता है। प्रवाल की जड़ मधुमक्खी के छत्ता जैसा होता है | इसका रंग लाल होता है  बीचबीच में श्वेत चूना भरा होता है।

Pravala bhasma is prepared by three methods and they are known as:

 

  • Chandraputi
  • Suryaputi
  • Agniputi

 

Chandraputi Pravala Bhasma: Purified corals are triturated, in the mortar of a stone, with the rose water and the mixture is dried in moonlight. The process is repeated 21 times, thus the fine powder obtained is known as Chandra-put pravala bhasma or Pravala pishti. It is believed that moonlight augments the cooling property of coral. It is pinkish.

 

Suryaputi Pravala bhasma: Similar procedure as mentioned above is followed, the only difference is the mixture is dried in sunlight. The fine powder of coral obtained is called Suryaputi Pravala bhasma. It is pinkish-white in color.

 

Agniputi Pravala bhasma: In this method, the purified corals are first processed with aloe juice and then subjected to heating in Laghu putas. The process is repeated three times. The final preparation is a white-coloured fine powder, called Agniputi Pravala Bhasma.

 

Bhasma of Pravala is white.

Parvala Pishti

Suddha Pravala is taken in a clean Khalva yantra and triturated to obtain it in fine powder form. It is added with the desired quantity of Gulab jala (rose water) and triturated thoroughly for 3 days to obtain a very fine powder of pale rose red color with rose fragrance. It is later stored in a suitable airtight container such as Pravala Pishti.

 

प्रवाल पिष्टी – शुद्ध प्रवाल को स्वच्छ जल से प्रक्षालन करके सुखायें। फिर लौहे के इमामदस्ते में अच्छी तरह कूटकर सूक्ष्म चूर्ण करके सिमाक पत्थर के खल्व में  गुलाब जल के साथ तीन दिन तक अच्छी प्रकार मर्दन कर सुखायें। यह हल्के गुलाबी वर्ण की होती है।

Chandra Puti Pravala Pishti

The purified Pravala is first made into a fine powder, kept in a smooth rock mortar, and ground along with rose water in moon light for 21 days. This is called Chandra Puti Pravala Pishti.

 

चन्द्रपुटी प्रवाल पिष्टी – शुद्ध प्रवाल के सूक्ष्म चूर्ण को सिमाक पत्थर की खल्व में डालकर गुलाब जल के साथ रात्रि के समय चन्द्रमा के प्रकाश में बैठकर २१ दिन तक मर्दुन करने पर पिष्टि बनती है। इसे चन्द्रपुटी प्रवालपिष्टि कहते है। यह अतिशीतल, मेध्य, बल्य, वृष्य, ओजसू वृद्धिकर एवं सक्तपित्त तथा क्षयरोग नाशक है।

Pravala bhasma or Pravala pishti is given in the dose of 50 mg. to 200 mg. according to strength and time of disease and the disease. Since it is corrosive, Pravala bhasma causes stomatitis when taken directly. Therefore it is mixed thoroughly with honey or milk cream to avoid this problem. 200 mg. of pravala is given along with Tandulodaka (rice-soaked water) to immediately relieve dysuria caused by Kapha dosha.

 

100 mg of Pravala is given along with Rasa Sindura, Katuki (Picrorrhiza kurroa), Draks (grape), and Abhaya (Terminalia chebula) to alleviate severe constipation.

 

100 mg of Pravala is given mixed with Rasa Sindura and decoction of Goksura (Tribulus terrestris) to cure strangury.

 

200 mg of Pravala mixed with honey is taken to alleviate night sweating. It controls edema by taking along with Rasa Sindura, Punarava (Boerhaavia diffusa), and Goksura (Tribulus terrestris). Chronic sweating of palms is cured by using an equal quantity of Yasada bhasma and Pravala bhasma mixed with honey for three months.

 

Pravala is added with equal quantities of Abhraka bhasma and powder of Vamsalocana (Bamboo manna) to alleviate cough caused by phthisis.

 

According to Unani Therapeutics, Pravala bhasma is administered to children who suddenly wake up from sleep at night and keep weeping due to fear. It is said in Yuktikalpataru that Rakta pitta (hemorrhagic disorders), Dadru (ringworm), Bhagandara (Fistula- in- ano), Rakta dusti (vitiation of blood), Prameha (urinary disorders), Visphota (erosions of the skin), Dusta vrana (putrefied wounds), Asthibhanga (fractures), Agnibhaya (fear of fire) and Arsa (piles) occur due to disturbed Mars planet.
