Amla : A Divine Plant - Amla or Indian gooseberry is worshipped in several Vedic festivals. It is being referred as  divaushadhi (a divine plant) in the sacred texts of Hinduism including the Puranas. Amla berry contains five of the six tastes: sweet, sour, bitter, astringent and pungent, which makes it divine. The only taste missing is 'salty'. It is suitable for all seasons, weather conditions and body types. All parts of the plant are used in various ayurvedic herbal preparations, including the fruit, seeds, leaves, roots, barks and flowers.
