If we go a little deeper into the question of health, we shall have to go very much further. Whatever has been accepted today and whatever truth we have found is not all that is there. We shall have to look still further.

Mahavira thought about the problem from two points of view: nishchayanaya (scientific approach) and vyavaharanaya (practical approach). What happens in actual practice is revealed to us much later. In nishchaya there is no rule, nothing that is found happening practice. That particular thing happens in the world of emotions six months, one year, five years earlier and is sustained in the world of emotions. The same thing happens in the body. Many people suffer from cancer. The doctor says that it is a malady which is one year old but it had not been detected. It is more difficult to detect the mental illness. And meeting the illness in the world of emotions is still more difficult. Let us consider the extensive and restricted form the naya.

Psychology uses the terms negative approach and positive approach. Beyond that is the purification of the bhava. The person who is conscious about the purification of the bhava, whose bhava remains pure, learns the secret of good health. Let the person whose bhavas are impure endeavour to keep his bhava as pure as possible. He who has resolved this becomes conscious about his health. The question of health is related to the purity of the bhava. He who is indifferent towards his bhava is also indifferent towards his health. There is a close relation between health and the world of emotions. Therefore, it is important to think about the "world of emotions and health" not only from the philosophical point of view, but also from the point of view of health.
