About Ayurveda


Ayurveda, a scientific holistic medical system originating in India, has been practiced for over 5,000 years. It is the ancient wisdom of living in harmony with our Self and our environment. The knowledge of Ayurveda expounds spiritual insights for living happy, healthy and peaceful lives while seeking the ultimate goal of Self-Realization. It describes the nature of the universe with all its manifestations and how to bring ourselves into harmony with it. It is based on the understanding that the whole universe is interconnected and interdependent.
