Ayurveda - Art of Being 6/7

Ayurveda, the ancient healing system of India, was founded in the Himalayas and Southern India before or around 5000 years ago by sages and gurus who did not separate the external world from man's inner world, nor did they isolate man's spiritual anguish from his other sufferings.

Ayurveda views life as a totality; physiological, psychological, environmental, and spiritual aspects are interconnected, interrelated and interdependent.

Ayurveda recognises the unique constitutional differences of all individuals and therefore recommends different regimens for different types of people. Although two people may appear to have the same outward symptoms, their energetic constitutions may be very different and therefore call for very different remedies.

Ayurveda focuses on establishing and maintaining balance of the life energies within us, rather than focusing on individual symptoms.

Ayurveda has its roots in the same spiritual traditions of India from which Yoga, meditation and astrology have developed. Ayurveda is a complete medical system which is closely allied with the Hindu philosophy of creation; that the source of all existence is spirit, or absolute pure consciousness, manifested as male and female energies. Ayurveda assists Nature by promoting harmony between the individual and Nature by living life of balance according to her laws.
