Varanasi, June 23 (ANI): The Banaras Hindu University in Uttar Pradesh has turned to ancient holy texts to find a cure for heart ailments.
Approved and allotted by the University Grants Commission (UGC), the project has given a rise to number of 'astrology hospitals' in the holy city. The astrology hospitals are places where astrologers prescribe semi precious stones, beads and herbal medicines.
"After a long thinking period and conducting interview, UGC has allowed us to start with this project. We have also received an approval letter. The project is on how to prevent and cure heart related diseases through astrology," said Shatrughan Tripathi, Professor, Astrology Department, BHU.
The heart ailments used to be cured with herbs.
According to Tripathi, astrology is a therapy too. In fact the ancient books are replete with mentions of diseases and treatments.
"Through Astrology, one can diagnose the heart diseases in human beings, when it can happen and during what situations it can happen. We are not doing anything new but all these diseases have been mentioned in our ancient holy books. We are trying to bring the same things to the people but in a scientific manner," he said.
