Remember only coconut & banana are offered to gods & deities as propitiation (Pooja)!!!
Why? Does anyone know?
For, Coconut palm & Banana plant is not regenerated from tasted & left over seeds of these two nut & fruit, by either human beings, animals, birds, reptiles, worms etc., whereas, all other trees, palms, plants, shrubs can be regenerated by virgin seeds as well as seeds which have been tasted & left over by human beings, animals, birds, reptiles, worms etc.
Such being the case, when coconut qualifies as the only nut that can be offered to gods & deities, will it ever be harmful to human beings????!!!!
Answer is an emphatic NO!!!Further, it is scientifically established, coconut oil is the only cooking medium that does not disintegrate even if it is heated to 188 degree Celcius. No other oil remains stable at this temperature.If one inspects empty canisters of coconut oil & compares it with canisters in which other cooking oils were stored, one would be startled to find waxlike deposit in all canisters in which oil other than coconut oil was stored but, in the canister in which coconut oil was stored, will be clean.
So, which oil has insoluble wax? Definitely all oils other than coconut oil!!!!
All oils in Ayurveda, coconut oil is used as base. However, Gingili Oil is used extensively mainly for two considerations. It is far cheaper than Coconut oil & film Gingli oil being viscous remains at the place applied for longer duration. However, coconut oil being least viscous flows through the pores of ones body resulting in better drug delivery.
From coconut shell, a potent Ayurvedic oil is prepared known as Vishwamitra Kapola Taila.
Chips of coconut shell are added to various fleshes(fowl, mutton, beef, pork etc.) that are cooked as anti toxic, anti microbial & anti viral. That was why our forefathers used ladles, serving spoons, spoons. Rice servers made from coconut shell with bamboo handles!!!!
Coconut shells are used as idli cups !!!! to bake a serving known as Udarge in Tulu.
So, use coconut oil extensively! Remember Plastic in any variety & form is not a material fit to store edibles & potables. So, do not eat or drink anything contained in plastic as it is highly toxic & carcinogenic!!!!
Buy coconut oil directly from OIL MILL & not the one stored in plastic stches, bottles, bags etc., Coconut palm is also referred to as Kalpataru or Kalpavriksha, owing to its varies uses to mankind; although Kalpavriksha is a mythological tree stated to have originated from Churning of sea of milk (Samudra Manthan) alongwith which wish fulfilling cow Kamadhenu was also stated to have been originated.
ASK YOURSELF; IS COCONUT OIL & ITS OTHER DERIVATIVES HARMFUL TO HUMAN BEINGS???!!! ANSWER IS AN EMPHATIC & AXIOMATIC NO!!!
ONE SHALL BE BEMUSED TO BE CONVINCED, THAT IT IS A FAUX PAS CONCIEVED TO PROMOTE BASE OILS OF ALL KINDS WHEN, COCONUT OIL PRICES SOARED TO Rs.80 PER LITER IN EARLY 1980s.
