Ayurveda explores in detail the “Science of Life” and perceives a close relationship between Human and the Universe. In order for us to be healthy, we have to live in harmony with ourselves as well as with the Universe. “As is the macrocosm (universe), so is the microcosm (individual)” says Ayurveda and further states that the whole Universe is an interplay of various energies that manifest as both energy and matter. Looks like Einstein’s theory of E=mc2 concurs with Ayurvedic basic principle of the Universe.
The word “Ayurveda” is a combination of 2 Sanskrit root words – “Ayu” which means “Life” and “Veda” which means “Science, knowledge or learning”. Ayurveda therefore covers the entire Knowledge and Science of Life (including mineral plant and animal life). Ayurvedic’s philosophy of well being in steeped in the prevention of disease and promotion of the health through diet, lifestyle and harmonious living. The curative and maintenance aspect of disease is also discussed in-depth but preventive medicine is seen as the ultimate key to healthy living.
