About The Book

Ayurveda is one of the oldest system of medicine in the world. Its popularity has been increasing globally over the last few decades. In this first book in the “Ayurveda Simplified” series, Dr. Nisha Manikantan explains not just the basic principles of Ayurveda, but also touches topics that are not conventionally considered a part of Ayurveda. This holistic approach in explaining the mechanics of this ancient science offers a fresh perspective and makes this book a lot more than an introduction.

Introduction

What is Ayurveda?

The name Ayurveda is made up of two words.’Ayu’ means life and ‘Veda menas knowledge/science. Ayurveda is the knowledge of life. Ayurveda is a complete system of health, both preventive and curative, which originated in India thousands of years ago as part of ancient India’s Vedic lore.

It is the most enduring, time-tested healing modality prevailing in the world today. It is a natural system of healing and is accepted as the oldest scientific medical system, with a long record of clinical experience. More than just a medical system, it is a science of life, a way of living with the rhythm of nature. This ancient wisdom of life has a holistic approach towards health and treats man as a whole, since it views man as having three bodies-the physical, astral and casual (body, mind and soul). Its systems of prevention, diagnosis and treatment always take into consideration all three levels.

Why Ayurveda?

Dharmarthakamamokshanam arogyam mulamuthamam

Since the dawn of civilization, man is aware that ‘Health is Wealth’. In spite of this awareness disease has always been a part and parcel of human life.

The Vedas are the most ancient scriptures in the history of mankind that authoritatively illuminate the secrets of life and the universe as a whole. The four goals of life, as laid down by them (Purshartha) are dharma (discharge of responsibilities),artha (acquisition of wealth), Kama (fulfilment of desires) and moksa (liberation). Diseases are obstacles in the pathway of life. Ayurveda is a knowledge system, which makes life free from these obstacles. It teaches us how to maintain and protect health, how to cure diseases and how to promote longevity.

Sariram adyam khalu dharmasadhanam

Body is the tool that enables one to carry out one’s activities and duties to oneself and others. Therefore, it must be maintained properly. The body is made up of the same five elements which from the entire universe. The elements are ether (space), air, fire, water, and earth.Each cell of our system represents the whole creation in every respect. This has been illustrated by a profound statement n the Vedas:

Yat pinde tat brahmande

As is the Microcosm, so is the Marcrocosm. Man is an integral part of the universe with whom he shares his make-up of five elements.

Shiryate anena iti shariram

That which perishes is the body. The elements, which decrease in amount, are again replaced and this replacement is done by nature.

Manyate anena iti manah

That which perceives is the mind. The mind makes us aware of the world around us and is also the source of self-awareness. The body and the mind are seen as components of a larger system-the individual. Treatment of the body in modern medicine has developed over many centuries. Study and treatment of the mind-psychology, however, is relatively a very recent development. Moreover, this branch has developed independently of the medical system. Psychologists are not expected to know phychology. In Ayurveda, however, both the body and mind are treated together and the doctor keeps track of both before going ahead. Therefore, Ayurveda is called a holistic system of treatment.

Fotis, Greece
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
