When such an elderly person comes in the vicinity of any younger individual, these frequencies start affecting the younger person. A subtle magnetic field is created between the two. Consequently, the vital energy of the younger person is pulled upward. This way the younger person can suffer due to sudden momentum to his vital energy. When this younger person does namaskār to the elderly person, some amount of the central channel of his Kundalinī system is activated and the Sattva component in it starts increasing. Consequently the Raja and Tama components in him are influenced by the Sattva component and the vital energy comes back to normal state.
