Imagine you are driving down a road lined with trees, flowers, and tall grass. The wind is soft and inviting. Suddenly, your car can’t move forward owing to a malfunction. There is no mechanic nearby and hence, you are stuck on the beautiful road. Now you can’t move forward. Plus, you can’t continue to enjoy the beauty around you.
This is an example of our life. The car is our body, and the beautiful road and greenery are the many happiness and privileges of life. When we become ill, we stop enjoying our life filled with blessings, joy, and love.
What makes us ill?
What are we doing wrong to invite diseases to the abode of our souls?
Is there a way to bounce back to health and stay that way?
All these questions and more that you haven’t even thought of are answered in great detail in simple language in this book about Ayurveda- the ancient text about healthy living.
Modern science may be affecting our everyday decisions with its practical lifestyle advice, but if you wish to make significant and deep changes to your body and mind’s health, you need to take refuge in the thousands of years old pages. Ayurveda is the ancient science that the Rishis developed after years of meditation. Their deep connection to the inner world revealed to them secrets that were so astonishingly accurate, they had to be passed on to the common man. And thus, Ayurveda was formed- the ancient medical text about living an ideal life in tune with oneself, nature, and mankind.
Ayur means life and Veda means scientific knowledge. The purpose of Ayurveda is to impart health to all by making the healthy stay healthy and the diseased to be free of disorders.
Ayurveda is a complex scripture that is not easy to read for everyone. This book simplifies and breaks down important points relating to the basic principles of Ayurveda. It makes you see how the centuries-old scriptures are so well thought out and relevant to this day.
About the Book
Our body’s nature and its elements, food, and seasons- there is a connection between these factors which if not in sync with each other, lead to imbalance of our system or what we commonly know as disease.
With each change of season, almost everyone falls sick. That is because we have forgotten to stay in tune with our inner and outer nature and follow the basic ethics of eating, resting, and exertion.
The book shares insightful details about living life healthily, keeping diseases at bay in every season. Every human body is made of three doshas- Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. And every human body is dominated by certain doshas. In this book, you find out about your dominant dosha or Prakriti to know what kind of diet and lifestyle is best for you in order to attain good health throughout your lifetime. Coupled with your dosha, and other important constituents of the body, you learn how to adapt to the changing seasons and protect yourself from the looming diseases in the environment.
Basic Principles of Ayurveda also covers chapters about asanas, daily routine for a good day, healthy pregnancy, and facts about heart attack. Overall, this book covers almost all aspects that are needed to live life to the fullest.
