FROM BEING CENTRED WITHIN ONE’S OWN SELF
In Sanskrit, the language of Ayurveda and Yoga, the word for health is ‘Swasthya’, which has a profound meaning.
It is made of two root Sanskrit words, namely ‘Swa’, or the Self, and ‘Stha’ meaning stabilised, rooted or centered. Thus Swasthya can be translated as ‘stablised, rooted or centered within one’s own Self’.
Ayurveda is a person-centred medical and health system that has a personalised approach to health care and self care, with detailed guidance about food, nutrition, diet and lifestyle, as per your unique mind-body nature or Prakruti, and in accordance with the seasons.
Ayurveda aims at assisting you in ‘swasthya’ , so that you become a healthy being, ‘swastha’, whereby your physical, mental, and emotional health will enable your body, mind, and spirit to function in perfect harmony.
Human life, in Ayurvedic terms, comprises four basic aspects: the Self, (Atma), the mind (Manas), the senses (Indriyas) and the body (Sharira). All four of these components participate in the creation and maintenance of health and happiness, and all four of them play a role in the generation of disease.
Within each of us lie dormant abilities and extraordinary potential, far beyond what was believed to be possible in the past. New discoveries add to a growing body of evidence confirming that we are a highly advanced, highly sophisticated ‘living’ technology with the ability to self-heal, self-regulate, self-regenerate and rejuvenate every organ, each gland and all of the tissues in our bodies.
We are the technology we’ve been waiting for! Within each of us is our personal code for unlocking our Pure Human technology of neural networks, cell membranes and emotional intelligence, that allows us to excel in everyday life and thrive in times of uncertainty.
Vedic wisdom teachings have provided a blueprint for pure human thinking, and living, that awakens our extraordinary potential. This is currently being validated by the scientific discoveries of today.
