(Cleaning the tongue)
Tongue is another part of the mouth, which is important and needs cleaning. Impurities of the tongue cause many diseases like, throat trouble, cough troubling the voice, tastelessness, even bad breath. To avoid this jihwa shodhan is recommended, which is very essential and effective. It does not consume much effort or time.
Cleaning the tongue is divided into two varieties, jihwa shodan and jihwa moola shodhan. The first is usually done by many people. After danta dhauti, people tear the dantan into two pieces vertically and with that slice, clean surface of the tongue. But just this is not enough, because quite an amount of dirt and mucus is collected at the root of the tongue. Unless this is removed, you cannot consider the tongue cleaned. You can do this with the, three fingers of the hand; the index finger, middle one and the ring finger. By putting them into the mouth and reaching the root of the tongue rub in nicely. Do not be deterred by vomiting sensation; after rubbing a few times mucus starts coming out and only then you feel easy and’ nice. This should be done only in the morning and at the time of washing the teeth and should not be tried after food.
1. Cleaning the upper and lower parts of the tongue.
2. Removes mucus from the throat.
3. Cleanse the throat.
4. There is no chance of having throat trouble.
5. Sound becomes clear.
