Description

This work presents integration of yoga and Ayurveda for health and healing. The basic values like imbibing sattvic thoughts and getting rid of the tamasic thoughts are common in the texts of Patanjali as well as Caraka.

The important feature of the book is the methods to imbibe this timeless and precious wisdom in our daily lives.

Patanjali’s Yoga sutras or Aphorisms, written about 2600 years ago, condense the yogic tradition that existed in India 3600 years before that time. Yoga sutras contain wisdom beyond space and time. This period was also the golden period of Ayurveda. Both the disciplines are concerned primarily with the well being of the body, though their aims are different. To achieve the aim of yoga and become eternal with the Universal Soul or energy, one has to get over the bondage with the body. For that one requires a healthy and strong body and mind. Ayurveda the science of life of ancient India is primarily concerned with optimum quality of life, longevity and freedom form ailments. Both the disciplines integrate with each other on the well being of the body.

After having given an account of yoga and Ayurveda in their historical, social and cultural perspective, the following two sections of the book are devoted to Patanjali and basics of Ayurveda. The fourth Section is on the integration of yoga and Ayurveda. The last Section that forms nearly half of the book is on the practice of Ayurvedic yoga in everyday life. The book can be a precious guide to manage stress, to enhance concentration and memory and to give you hundreds of other valuable suggestions for health, harmony and peace of mind.
