Ayurveda – The Science of Life
Ayurveda – The Science Of Life. If this relationship does not come through, these subtle systems of medicine which work from within, will fail to work.
Ayurveda means – ayur means life span, veda means the scripture about how to keep your full stretch of life span. Ayurveda comes from a completely different dimension of life and a completely different understanding of what life is.
In the Ayurvedic system, the fundamental understanding is that this body, the way it is today, is an accumulation that we gathered from the planet. Whatever the nature of the planet, whatever the nature of the five elements which make the planet, are very much manifest in this physical body. Fundamentally, this whole body is just a play of five elements.
Whether it is the individual human body or the larger cosmic body, essentially, they are made of the pancha bhutas or the five elements – earth, water, fire, air and space. What you call as “myself” is just a mischief of these five elements. If you want to handle this physical body in such a way that the most productive result has to be produced by your life – which is a combination of time and energy – it is very important that everything that you do about this body has a relationship with the planet on which you are walking.
