Ayurvedic Medicine is a highly sophisticated & subtle system of medicine originating from ancient India. As the sister science of Yoga, Ayurveda has been recorded as scripture in the sacred language of Sanskrit designating the revered nature of this body of knowledge. It is a medicine based on the timeless principles of nature. Its application in daily life leads to happiness & wellbeing through the balance of body, mind & emotions. Following the path of Ayurveda can lead to the realization of the Soul and a deeper connection to the Divine.
Ayurveda allows us to detect subtle imbalances in the system long before western medicine can detect illness. For this reason it is an immensely powerful, preventative medicine. Ayurveda is beneficial for all individuals and especially significant for one engaged in higher spiritual practices.
Statements such as "The kingdom of God is within" and "God dwells within the heart" are revelations from those who understand that the path to God is an inner journey. Yoga is a systematic method to cultivate a healthy mind and body, assisting the practitioner to reach higher states of consciousness and deeper communion with the Divine. There are 8 limbs of classical Yoga with Asana (the physical postures) being just one of the limbs.
