Introduction to Ayurveda

Ayurveda is an ancient medical science which was developed in India thousands of years ago. Believed to have been passed on to humans from the Gods themselves.God ‘Dhwanathiri’ considered as the god who gives ayurveda to mankind for his health. In ayurveda literature it says that ayurveda not created, it sates ‘BRAMHA SMRITHWA AYURVEDA ‘. ie God Brahma recollected or compiled ayurveda science. It is believed that early a samhita named ‘Bramha Samhita’ was present. All other samhita’s used content Bramha samhita to write new samhita for easy understanding and usage.

Ayurvedic Medicine is the world's oldest comprehensive health care system and is indigenous to India where it is widely practiced. "This ancient art of healing asserts that the science, philosophy and spirituality are all necessary aspects of healthy living." Thus Ayurveda is not only a comprehensive medical system but also a way of living and the very concept of "mind, body and spirit" originates from Ayurveda.

Ayurveda originated in vedic time, ancient universities like was ‘Nalantha’ and ‘Takshashila’ was the main hub off education in ‘Hindustan’. They promoted ayurveda. Due to ‘Buddhism’ and ‘Jainism’ ayurveda spred all over the world, ‘Buddhist’ saints spread the ayurveda to South India, Srilanka, Indonesia etc. But I want to mention one thing that due to principle in ‘Ahimsa’ in ‘Buddhism’, surgical information in the Ayurveda almost lost they give more impotents to herbal and treatment procedure. Still we can see the influence of Buddhism in ayurveda classical text book.

Why Ayurveda Originated ?


In vedic time people are preferred ‘yaga’ or ‘Homa’ for a purpose like to get blessing from god, nature etc. To get cure from a disease, ‘Yaga’ is prescribed. Sir, you can simply guess what will be the cost for a ‘yaga’ like procedure, naturally that will not affordable by people, many families became poor due to this. Also more important thing is there, in ancient time ‘Chatur Varnya’ based community life style is adapted. All are not rich to involve in Yaga and all are not allowed. This situation lead a necessary situation to design a treatment protocol like ayurveda which is effective also cost effective system, even ordinary people can use.

Our ‘Acharya’ are considered as ‘Apta’, which simply means they free from all the negative energy from the earth, no intention to cheat others, not want to get any profit from anyone. They saw all the people as one, not based on community system. I believe that due to this Ayurveda is still exists, due to their kindness and truthfulness in heart, not me and any of other ayurveda doctors.



The word ‘Panchakarma’ originates from the Sanskrit language and it is actually two words, Pancha which means five, and Karma means the process, ways, of carrying out the treatment or therapy. As per Ayurveda, Panchakarma is a therapy that aims to purify, clean, revitalize and refresh the mind and body. With Panchakarma therapy, the toxins or the damaging ama can be effectively removed, and our natural doshas can be in a way corrected and one can experience overall rejuvenation that is brought about by the detoxification process.
