Healing Touch of Ayurveda !!


The Essence of Ayurvedic Healing

Ayurveda is the oldest surviving complete medical system in the world. Derived from its ancient Sanskrit roots – ‘ayus’ (life) and ‘ved’ (knowledge) – and offering a rich, comprehensive outlook to a healthy life, its origins go back nearly 5000 years. To when it was expounded and practiced by the same spiritual rishis, who laid the foundations of the Vedic civilisation in India, by organising the fundamentals of life into proper systems.

Mythological Origin of Ayurveda

The main source of knowledge in this field therefore remain the Vedas, the divine books of knowledge they propounded, and more specifically the fourth of the series, namely Atharvaveda that dates back to around 1000 BC. Of the few other treatises on Ayurveda that have survived from around the same time, the most famous are Charaka Samhita and the Sushruta Samhita which concentrate oninternal medicine and surgery respectively. The Astanga Hridayam is a more concise compilation of earlier texts that was created about a thousand years ago. These between them forming a greater part of the knowledge base on Ayurveda as it is practiced today.

Ayurveda is not simply a health care system but a form of lifestyle adopted to maintain perfect balance and harmony within the human existence, from the most abstract transcendental values to the most concrete physiological expressions. Based on the premise that life represents an intelligent co-ordination of the Atma (Soul), Mana (Mind), Indriya (Senses) and Sharira (Body). That revolves around the five dense elements that go into the making of the constitution of each individual, called Prakriti. Which in turn is determined by the vital balance of the three physical energies – Vata, Pitta, Kapha and the three mental energies – Satwa, Rajas, Tamas.

Origin of Ayurveda

The art of Ayurveda had spread around in the 6th century BC to Tibet, China, Mongolia, Korea and Sri Lanka, carried over by the Buddhist monks travelling to those lands. Although not much of it survives in original form, its effects can be seen in the various new age concepts that have originated from there.Though Ayurveda is the Indian System of medicine, it is much flourished and available in its purest form only in Kerala State. Awareness among people and easy availability of pure herbs are some of the reasons for this popularity in Kerala.

Further development and spread

Ayurveda is making its way more into lives of people as diet & lifestyle activities around the globe. Healthy daily habits like Oil pulling , Nasyam , Abhyangam  are being adopted by many.With Ayurveda being practiced all over the world, the way up ahead would be quite exciting. Cures are being invented every other day based on Ayurveda herbal wisdom by researchers. Doctors in hand in with scientists are working on innovating Ayurveda across different fronts. We hope as Ayurveda spreads more, the essence of it will trickle more, into lives of many – Wellness Naturally.
