Ayurveda is an ancient system of harmonizing the mind and body to maintain health longevity and tranquillity.
It is often referred as the sister science to yoga.
The word "Ayurveda" = ayus meaning "life" or "life principle"+ veda, which refers to a system of "knowledge".
All Ayurvedic literature is based on the Samkhya philosophy, like all yoga is based on Patanjali's yoga sutra. Samkhya in Sanskrit contains two root words: Sat = “truth” + Khya = “to know”.
An individual curious about Ayurveda is asked to cultivate firstly an open mind and heart toward philosophy of Samkhya, the mother of Ayurveda.
Ayurveda is not re-inventing the wheel, and often we doubt its efficacy based on its simplicity. What if the doubt came from our underestimation of the power of nature and the poser of mind and a self healing body?
Often regarded as an esoteric Science in the West. However it is in-fact a simple, practical science of life whose principals universally applicable to each and every individual's daily existence. It is presently in daily use by millions from Pakistan to Japan. Today it is slowly gaining momentum and more attention in allopathic healthcare. What many refer to as holistic care. Ayurveda is a science of truth as it expressed in life.
Ayurveda sheds light on every element and fact of human life. It is is a guide seek greater harmony and peace and longevity. There is a microcosmos inside of us that reflects the macrocosmos outside of us. In ayurveda the whole life journey, and life itself is considered to be sacred.
For Ayurveda to work for you it asks you to believe.
This philosophy perceives a close relationship between man and the universe, how cosmic energy manifest in all living and nonliving things. As the source of all existence is Cosmic consciousness, that in turn manifests itself as the male and female energy, Shiva and Shakti. Creation is based on 5 fundamental elements:
ETHER - AIR - FIRE - WATER - EARTH
These 5 combined in various ways gives us the three qualities of life (dosha):
VATA - PITTA - KAPHA
(ETHER+AIR) (WATER+EARTH) (FIRE+WATER)
That, in turn define the three biological attributes of our natural world and our physical and mental functions (guna):
SATVWA - RAJA - TAMAS
When studied together Ayurveda and Sanatan Yoga have tremendous potential for speeding up the course of one's maturity.
