Throughout history a rare few sages knew of certain herbal substances that would greatly enhance their spiritual awakening. In Yoga these revered herbs were called Rasayanas, alternatively, in Taoism they’re known as tonic herbs. In the West we call them adaptogens. Adaptogens enhance what Hans Seyle, the father of stress research, calls “adaptive energy;” this same energy is called prana in yoga, qi (chi) in China, ki in Japan, and in other mystical circles, it is called lifeforce. Our lifeforce is responsible for the optimum functioning of our bodies, minds and emotions. More importantly, when we have abundant lifeforce, then it is possible to ignite a spiritual awakening. The more lifeforce we have, the greater the awakening. However, even if a spiritual awakening isn’t the goal, these remarkable herbs restore balance and enhance our general health.
