Arjuna is the number one herb used in Ayurveda for the heart (according to Charak Samhita, the oldest Ayurvedic text).
The Sanskrit name, arjuna, literally means infinite vibration of “a” that never declines. The sound, “a,” (the most open sound the mouth can make) in Sanskrit signifies the most open, all embracing field of life, pure consciousness. it is this connection that the arjuna tree has with unbounded consciousness or intelligence in nature that makes it most suitable for strengthening the heart.
The heart needs lots of “a” value to be able to transform all that comes to it. All transformations need space. The openness of consciousness, represented by “a” is necessary for the heart be effective in finding its way around and through the various problems presented to it. You know that when your heart is shrunken, it is not effective in dealing with problems. And when it is expanded, no problem seems to phase it. This is the value of a lively connection between consciousness and the heart.
Arjuna provides a great support for the heart by sharing its connection with unbounded consciousness. Like increases like. The natural divine intelligence of the arjuna tree inspires the heart to become connected and remain steadfast in its connection with unbounded awareness.
It is this hridya prabhava (arjuna’s special quality of strengthening the heart) that has given it such great fame in Ayurveda. Ayurveda describes arjuna as nadisarjascha kirttitah (with name and fame as long as the divine rivers).
Charak Samhita says, hridayah chetanasthanam (the heart is the seat of consciousness). Arjuna has the vibration of consciousness very much alive in it, and it nourishes the physical and emotional heart on the basis of its deep connection with consciousness.
