The heavenly physicians like the AÅvinÄ«-kumÄras could give youthful life even to one who was advanced in age. Indeed, great yogÄ«s, with their mystic powers, can even bring a dead body back to life if the structure of the body is in order. We have already discussed this in connection with Bali MahÄrÄjaâs soldiers and their treatment by ÅukrÄcÄrya. Modern medical science has not yet discovered how to bring a dead body back to life or bring youthful energy to an old body, but from these verses we can understand that such treatment is possible if one is able to take knowledge from the Vedic information. The AÅvinÄ«-kumÄras were expert in Äyur-veda, as was Dhanvantari. In every department of material science, there is a perfection to be achieved, and to achieve it one must consult the Vedic literature. The highest perfection is to become a devotee of the Lord. To attain this perfection, one must consult ÅrÄ«mad-BhÄgavatam, which is understood to be the ripe fruit of the Vedic desire tree (nigama-kalpa-taror galitaá¹ phalam).
