What is an evil eye? It is said that the eye is the most powerful organ, which can give off positive or negative energy;
therefore, evil eye holds enormous power. A thought, a malevolent glare, or an admirable glance usually given
intentionally or unknowingly to a person, either for their good looks, flourishing business, reaching the pinnacle of
success, for growing higher in status can be the cause of an evil eye.
Evil eye mostly affects children. In the olden days, elders used to spin around the head of the child affected by the evil eye, red chilies, marking nut and salt. After doing this, the child would get better. This is not a superstition. Scientists have done research on the coconut and proved the prevalence of evil eye. To obviate the ill effects of the evil eye, there is a special 'Drishti Kund' in SGA to perform.
This is performed on your own : Holding the black pouch (available in ashram) stand facing the South and pray to relieve you of any affliction with which you are affected, be it 'Pakshi dosham' (affliction caused by harming a bird), 'pashu dosham' (affliction caused by harming any animal), 'Krimi Keetak dosham' (affliction caused by harming any insect or worm), 'Nara dosham' (affliction caused by harming any person) and ‘Drishti Dosham’ (Affliction caused by evil eye of a person or creature) and pray that the dosham be burnt to ashes in the Drishti Kund fire. Saying this rotate the pouch around the head with your left hand, from the right to the left and again from left to the right three times and put the pouch in the fire. Then wash your hands and legs and circumambulate the Shiva Ganga tree adjacent to the 'Drishti Kund'.
