HISTORY OF VEDIC HEALING
More than 10,000 years ago, a group of seven ancient sages (in what is today considered India) gathered together to meditate on the forces of nature that influence all of life, and their discoveries led to an understanding of our place in the universe and an all-encompassing holistic system of recognizing the nature of health, disease, and healing.
What these teachings revealed was that everything in the universe- from the tiniest microbe to the largest star and everything in between- is made up of the same five elements- earth, air, fire, water, and ether. This elemental theory of nature and existence is thus what forms the premise behind Vedic practices such as that of Yoga, Ayurveda (traditional medicine) and Jyotish (Vedic Astrology), as well as lesser known practices like Vastu (environmental design) and Tantra (worship of divine beauty).
Each plant, each planet, and each microbe is thus made of these elements, and as humans, we are no different; We are just as governed by the laws of nature as everything else. While each of us is made of the same five elements however, the Vedic sciences teach us that we have all been incarnated with our own unique ratio of these elements, and that this is what gives rise to our individual differences in personality, appearance & temperament, and also what leads us each to have our own unique combination of susceptibilities, gifts, and struggles in this life.
By learning to understand your true nature as well as by learning to recognize the reflection you cast upon the rest of nature around you (as well as it, upon you), you can begin to regain and re-balance your health by unraveling the mysteries of who you truly are, why you are here, and how you can overcome the challenges we all inevitably face at some point with respect to our health, as well as our careers, finances and relationships.
Ayamveda takes you on a journey towards deep Self-discovery via ancient Vedic practices in order to bring you into alignment with your truest nature, and thus to help you regain a state of optimal health. The purpose behind these ancient sister sciences is to understand, accept and find union within oneself and all of life. These traditional practices have withstood the test of time because of their ability to educe deep introspection and honesty in those who wish to explore the depths of reality, and by doing so, one can achieve true health and often even reverse the disease process altogether.
I know, because I did this myself, and I trust that you can too.
"Veda" in Sanskrit means "wisdom", and at Ayamveda, I remember that
I AM Veda.
And so are you.
