Ayurveda and Numerology
interview with Harish Johari

I'm intrigued with Johari's statement about cat's eye and his destiny number.

Is numerology also a part of Ayurveda? "Of course," says Harish Johari, grinning, as he hands me yet another of his books "Numerology with Tantra, Ayurveda, and Astrology". "Numerology uses numbers as a key to human behavior. It's an easy-to-learn method that exercises the mind's intuitive faculty to fathom the depths of human personality."

Harish Johari's destiny number, seven, pegs him as a mystic teacher of the abstract, a dreamer, inventive and intuitive. "The destiny number is related to our samskaras - vibrational patterns acquired by actions in past incarnations, or karmas."

Individuals are equally influenced by their psychic and name numbers, Harish Johari adds. The psychic number is obtained by making a simple whole number of the date of the day of birth omitting the month and year, and reveals the way one regards oneself, in terms of choices about food, sex, friendship, marriage, ambition, and desire. The name number is obtained by adding the numerological values assigned to each letter in one's full name. The sphere of influence for the name number includes official documents, business, banks, and forms, and while it has a strong influence on the logistics of living, it doesn't affect the psyche or destiny.

It all comes down to cosmic play again, pirouettes of that incessantly twirling dancer, Leela - whether it's music, elements, chakras, gunas, the breath, food, gemstones, or numbers, says Harish Johari. Within the ayurvedic worldview, numerology is a useful predictive science that helps orient us to the cosmic rhythms. "Numerology provides the knowledge for such things as how to select the right moment, the right relationship, the right dwelling place---thereby saving energy."
