Kasargod: Recital of Mantras during surgery beneficial, say specialist doctors

Daijiworld Media Network - Kasargod (SP)

Kasargod, Jul 20: Well-known orthopaedic surgeon Dr Nagaraj, and anaesthetist, Dr Venkatagiri, have found by experiments that recital of Mantras during the performance of surgeries gives rise to positive vibes in the patients and contributes to the success of the surgeries.

During this period Covid pandemic situation was acute, the doctors had got an opportunity to learn Mantras online through Sri Ramachandrapur Mutt Hosanagar. On most of the days the Mantra classes were held online, these doctors were in the operation theatres. Sometimes, when the surgery was on, the doctors used to repeat the Mantras. The attention of the patients too was attracted towards the Mantras and they too repeated them. This helped the patients to have a positive mindset and drive away fear of surgery. This fact was narrated by some of their patients. Some patients specifically wanted the Veda Mantras to be played and the practice is continuing.

Normally light music is played in hospitals. In operation theatres, normally exchange of conversation between the doctors and names of the surgical implements are heard. But the recital of Mantras has benefitted the patients, they said

The doctors play Rudra, Chamaka, Shreesookta, Narayana Sookta, Durga Sookta and other important Mantras from the Vedas. They experimented by playing them before and after the surgeries. Dr Venkatagiri said that if the doctors themselves recite the Mantras during the surgeries, the patients get positive vibes and they are able to drive away the fear of surgeries. Both the doctors say that they get the mental strength to perform even complicated surgeries easily.

    This is really interesting theory and it needs proper science study of it how it is happening. I am knowing dr Venkatagiri due to my one cousin is undergoing a surgery for hernia in kasargod in 1999 initially he is going to govt hospitals and meeting this dr and dr is recommending a private hospital for the better result of the surgery . He is very spiritual and is explaining how the outcome is being better in a different hospital in a very spiritual way totoally convincing my cousin . They are giving some donation for the success of the operation also and it goes off very smoothly . It is a fact that faith is playing a major role in healing and science is proving this many times . It is a miracle that under effect of anesthesia also these patients are able to hear this mantras and getting its benefit this is proof of skill of dr and also the power of faiths. There must be more study of these things and combining of modernity and tradition is need of the hour for a holistic healing of patients everywhere, may God bless these doctors for sacrifices in tough times of Covid

    A good training and focus on the work makes a person good surgeon. If the surgeon is good, surgery results are good. This is proven beyond doubt. The surgeon may be a devotional person, but he doesn't chant mantras or recite rosary during surgery. He might do it before or after surgery. The surgeons are supposed to keep their mouth shut as the droplets of saliva coming out of surgical masks can be infectious. Majority of the surgeons do not talk unless it is very essential. During surgery , a good surgeons is serious doing his job at his best, at the earliest.

    I am a medical professional who graduated from a recognised medical university (deemed to be university) . I find this approach by Venkatagiri to be deeply disturbing at multiple levels, is Venkatagiri chanting Hindu mantras irrespective of the religion of the patient being operated upon? I don't have a problem if consent is sought from a patient under GA before this chanting takes place even though the efficacy of mantra chanting is zero . It also reflects on poor standards of medical practice in kasargod,, Christmas carols if chanted by all ancillary staff are much better in reducing recovery time .

    I am a long term patient with multiple comorbidities, have been visiting kasargod govt hospital for years now and have had multiple surgeries for problems. I was a sailor for many years of my youth and this has left me with health problems due to lifestyle choices I made, I has many surgeries for back passage problems, sometimes created by customs officers and sometimes my own fault but that is life. I once see this doctor for anesthesia of back passage so I can use for storing gold , this doctor say chanting mantra will help surgery if I give him a cut in the profit

    I don’t think the article mentioned about divine intervention due to Mantra . Divine intervention is present in every aspect of life but , in this case the faith of Doctors and the Patient matters . When a doctor recite a mantra on which the patient has immense faith they get connected . The patient will develop immense confidence with the doctor and he becomes very positive which is the basis of success for any complex problem solving . Well as Hindu I feel our Mantras has such vibration when recited we get some kind of peace of mind . It may be same in every prayers .

    Very concerning. Doctors should be focusing on surgery. It opens the doors for doctors to learn every religion prayers to chant during surgery to meet the different religions patients demands. Please keep a medical standard procedures and saggregate personal faith and beliefs from public domain. Prayers are important which should be kept private and personal. Play a plain music in the event of patients demands. Otherwise doctors focus should be on surgery

    During surgery the patients are totally anaesthetised or sedated. How will they know what the doctors are chanting? It is better for the patients if doctors concentrate on surgery than chanting mantras.

    SJ, this is no rocket science and not specific to any religion... if a surgeon is devout believer, he can pray before surgery (as per his religion), his concentration and judgement during surgery might be better... it depends on the surgeon's belief system...

    @ Jeevana..., Absolutely... Hinduism is a sanatana dharma... has answers & solutions to all problems & circumstances in human life..., but what we regretfully see in and around is is - REAL Hinduism vs FEKU Hinduism..., time for all REAL Hindus to reject FEKU Hinduism .... one which propagate, preach, practice - intolerance, hatred, vengeance, revenge..etc., for the sake of & to uphold its religious values..., it seldom work..., lets be aware & beware of such elements...

    Girl from your posts I find no difference in you and the people you are against propagating feku Hinduism, they are full of hate and contempt for Hindus and BJP,. Please practice what you preach, instead of changing others change yourself.

    Kujuma, kodial, I am Hindu but my real dharma is Rashtra dharma. The beliefs of those following other faiths were most likely learned much the same way you learned your own, from family, community, and participation in religious instruction.

    karela full of mantravadis and kaniyaas... witchcraft, black magic, sorcery etc.etc. etc. ಶತ್ರು ಸಂಹಾರ, ಪರ ಪತ್ನಿ / ಪರ ಪುರುಷ ವಶೀಕರಣ, ಪರ ಸ್ತ್ರೀ / ಪರ ಪುರುಷ ಬಾಧೆ ನಿವಾರಣೆ, ವ್ಯವಹಾರದಲ್ಲಿ ನಷ್ಟ etc. etc.... one hires a practitioner for ಶತ್ರು ಸಂಹಾರ.. nothing may happen to ಶತ್ರು, but one might end up losing own ಪತ್ನಿ and ಪುತ್ರಿ to the mantravaadi....

    I think its an individual choice, not affecting the outcomes much. Some doctors i have heard listen to music too. There are some great surgeons, who do all kind of complex surgeries, but dont listen to music at all. So, it is basically an individual preferance to keep the state of mind calm. I dont think there will be any divine interferance if shlokas are chanted as being implied in the article.
