Understanding Ayurveda

Ayurveda is a holistic system of healing. Ayurveda means the "Knowledge or Science of Life". This science is almost 5000 years old. It evolved in India with verve around 600 B.C. while the legend has it that Ayurveda system of medicine was instructed to the ancient sages by the gods themselves. According to Charaka, the ancient physician-sage, life is a unified state of the physical body, the cognitive organs, the mind and the soul. Ayurveda brings harmony into body, mind and soul, thus signifying a living being. Its very basis is the spiritual knowledge of the ancient seers of India and the cosmic consciousness in which they lived.

It is said that Ayurveda is old as the world itself. The contemporary practice of Ayurveda is based on the several hundred volumes of Classical treatises and on the official Formulary and Pharmacopoeia. Its strength lies in its broad, all encompassing view of the dynamic inter-relationship between organic physiological processes along with the internal psychological and spiritual condition besides external factors including climate, life work and diet. According to the ancient Ayurvedic texts, five elements of nature, namely, ether, air, fire, water and earth are present in the human body:

Ayurveda Yoga & Meditation in South IndiaEther - is space, in particular the cellular, synaptic and visceral spaces which allow the tissues to function efficiently.

Air - governs movement in the body. The sensation that is felt when someone touches the skin is transported to the brain through movement. Other examples include breathing through the movement of diaphragm as well as shifting of thoughts & desires.

Fire - represents the qualities of change and transformation. It is therefore, the element Relative to absorption, assimilation, digestion, and body temperature.

Water - takes many forms in the body such as saliva, plasma, mucus and urine - at the same time it is necessary for healthy cell functions.

Earth - is the element which forms the solid structures of the body like bones, cartilage, teeth and skin etc.

The scientific premise of Ayurveda focuses on living life naturally and teaches how to live in this universe without disturbing the delicate balance of nature. Ayurveda believes in the treatment of not just the affected part but the body as a whole. It eliminates all toxic imbalances from the body and thus helps to refresh you in the natural way, regain resistance and good health. Ayurveda always stresses on the prevention of body ailments in addition to curing them.

The five elements of the nature as listed above are used to create the structure of the body. There are three doshas (disturbing forces) that are formed taken two from out of the five elements mentioned above. These are used to determine the individual's primary constitution and are responsible for the functional aspect of the human body. Massage, herbs and oils are applied to the body aiming to restore the natural balance of the three doshas Vata, Pitta and Kapha, described as:

VATA - is the combination of the air and ether.
PITTA - is the combination of water and the fire.
Ayurveda Yoga & Meditation in South IndiaKAPAH -is the combination of water and the earth elements.

Ideally human beings and nature should be in perfect harmony. For thousands of years the wise men of India have applied natural medicine. Disease occurs when the equilibrium between these two is disrupted. Today, the ailing people from America, Europe, Middle East, Arabia, and countries of Far East are contacting Visit India South for arranging Ayurveda Treatment in India. Besides, there are many packages covering Beauty Care in Ayurveda, in which the balance of the doshas is gradually achieved by following an appropriate diet suitable to individual's body constitution and lifestyle. The most fascinating aspect of Ayurveda which is not so commonly known is that in the ancient times it was using almost all methods of healing like lifestyle regimen, herbs, diet, yoga, meditation, aroma, color, gems, amulets, jyotishi (astrology), and surgery etc. in treating patients.

Yoga & Meditation

The age-old "yoga" exercises offer a set of significant variety of proven health benefits. It is not, in itself, a cure for any medical ailment. It brings improvement in the coordination, sleep and digestion, concentration, posture, range of motion, and flexibility. It also services to improve the efficiency of the heart and slows the respiratory rate, lowers blood pressure, promotes relaxation, improves fitness, reduces stress and allays anxiety. It has already proven its efficacy as supplementary therapy for conditions as diverse as diabetes, asthma, migraine, cancer, arthritis, etc., and helps to combat addictions such as smoking. But as part of the well-known program of diet and exercise, it is known to have contributed to the reversal of heart disease in majority of cases. Yoga is not a religion. It is a secular and scientific methodology of the experience and integration of the mind-body-spirit. Yoga is a complete science of life that originated in India many thousands of years ago. It is the oldest system of personal South IndiaYoga & Meditationdevelopment in the world encompassing the entire body, mind and spirit.

The energy of pure consciousness flows through us only when the mind is pure. This energy while permeating our reality brings the experience of well-being, wisdom, and eternal peace. However, when the mind becomes impure due to attachment to external objects and desires, the connection to the source of pure consciousness is lost and we experience pain and fragmentation. Modern age life has given too many news things to us. It has made our lives easier in many ways. But more than that, it has also increased the stress levels, the complexities and mental pressure under which we keep going on. What we immediately do not realize is the impact of living such a lifestyle on our health. The practice of Yoga, or unification, re-establishes the connection between the individual and the universal field of pure consciousness. Yoga removes the attachment to external objects and false knowledge and corrects psychological trauma by merging the mind with the real, the virtuous, and the wellspring of harmony.

There evolves within our mind an imagined world-a world of images of things seen, heard, tasted, smelled and touched. A world which compares and contrasts images, remembers them, forms ideas around them. Quickly, there arise desires, aversions, ambitions, envy, hatred, attractions, plans, theories, and an entire imagined universe. Yoga is a method of learning that aims to attain the unity of mind, body, and spirit through these three main Yoga structures: Exercise, Breathing, and Meditation. The exercises of Yoga are designed to put pressure on the Glandular Systems of the body, thereby increasing its efficiency and total health. It is interesting to note that the Yoga teaching, like all true teachings, rests on a solid and strong foundation of spiritual rules which include honesty, truth, cleanliness, discipline, and obedience. It is these ethical laws of human conduct which are almost completely ignored in the majority of the so-called "yoga centers" which have sprung up throughout the world over the past few decades.

Eight Stages of Yoga:
Yama - Right conduct towards others;
Niyama - Right conduct towards oneself;
Asana - Physical Postures;
Pranayam - Control of the Breath;
Pratyahara - Control of the Mind and Sense Organs;
Dharana - Concentration and Control of the Attention;
Dhyana - Meditation;
Samadhi - Perfect balance and the unification.

South IndiaYoga & MeditationSome of the most often practiced types of Yoga are:
