The human body is the most delicate system with many automatic and powerful organs. Heart and lungs are nonstop pumping sets, the eyes are the automatic cameracumprojector which constantly takes accurate and perfect pictures immediately. The nervous system with sensory and motor nerves, sympathetic and parasympathetic nerves is the fastest communication system. The ear, nose, tongue, skin, genitals are delicate organs in their own fields. The stomach constantly digests varieties of food and the small intestine assimilates the essence of the food. The anus, urinary organ, skin, nose, etc. constitute the drainage system of the body. There are many glands with ducts and without ducts like pancreas, spleen, liver, thyroid, parathyroid, pituitary, etc. which regulate the human system.Above all, the human brain, a small part of the human body, has tremendous power; it controls, regulates and systematizes all functions of the body and the mind. It is also called the divine kingdom, because the seat of the soul, the source of all spiritual energy, dwells in it.
If any human limb is in disorder, the whole body suffers and life becomes miserable. The human body is the vehicle for peace and happiness, but it may often becomes a storehouse of diseases.
