About Ayurved

Basic Principles

"Balanced Doshas(humours),healthy Agni,a good state of tissues and their metabolic end products lead to a balanced state of the senses,mind and spirit,all of which lead to health".

The objectives of Ayurveda are preservation and promotion of the health of a healthy person and restoration of health in the diseased. Good health is the fundamental pre-requisite to acquire materialistic, social and spiritual upliftment of human being.

The Universe, according to Ayurveda is composed of five basic elements ─ Pancha Mahabhootas viz. Earth (Prithvi), Water (Jala), Fire (Agni), Air (Vayu), andSpace (Akash). As the human body is similarly constituted, there is a fundamental similarity between universe and man. A healthy balance between the microcosm (human being) and the macrocosm (universe) is the basis of health.

Ayurveda is based on the theory of three humours

  • Tridosha i.e. Vata, Pitta and Kapha, seven body tissues
  • Saptadhatu i.e., fluid components of the body (Rasa), Blood (Rakta),muscle tissue (Mamsa), adipose tissue(Medas), bone tissue(Asthi), bone marrow (Majja) and reproductive elements (Sukra) and three bio-wastes
  • Trimalas i.e. Urine (Mootra),Faeces (Pureesha) and Sweat (Sweda). The essence of saptadhatu called Ojas is responsible for immunity and strength
