Fundamentals of Ayurveda
Ayurveda is a life philosophy, founded on principles of observing nature in its all forms. It is based on the concept
As is the human body , so is the cosmic body
As is the microcosm, so is the macrocosm.
Ayurveda deliberates on spiritual aspect of consciousness as inseparable part of life. It is an ancient science that stresses the importance of joyful life through physical and emotional health and managing it through disciplined lifestyle, nutrition and exercise as per individual’s body constitution. It basically emphasizes on maintaining the natural wellbeing and prevention of dis-ease.
By understanding how our inner physiology alerts us through subtle changes happening in our bodies one can gain the balance relatively at an earlier stage of dis-ease.
In today’s age most of the imbalances stem from unhealthy lifestyle and emotional instability. Studying Ayurveda guides us step by step in understanding ourselves and those around us better. Ayurveda is the study of how to synchronize the rhythms of nature and living beings.
