On another night, while the sage-woman
and the others rested underneath a starlit
sky – they saw the Queen’s guard coming
towards them from a distance.
They could tell by the
engravings on his lantern and the
shadows they created all around. To their surprise, it was the Queen disguised as her own guard. And this was no ordinary queen.
Her crown was made of herbs – and robe sewn with flowers.
She was tall and looked as strong as a soldier from an army.
“This is the stuff of legends my ancestors passed on to me”, said the queen. And she handed the sage-women a bottle filled with an elixir.
“The people of the future need this. This contains herbs like Indian Asparagus, Indian Mallow, Indian Ginseng, Spreading Hogweed, Stone Apple, Indian Nightshade, Puncture Vine, Broken Bones Tree, Indian Coral
Tree, Wild Egg Plant, Indian Headache Tree.
It’s called RUJAHARI- meaning ‘the one who
seizes suffering’. It opens energy channels and
keeps joints and muscles well cared for”,
