About Ayurveda

Sri Dhanavantri Mantra - ``Obeisances unto the Supreme Bhagavan known as Sudarshana Vasudev Dhanvantari, the holder of the Kalasha full of nectar of immortality, who removes all fears, who removes all diseases, the well wisher of the three worlds, and sustainer of the three worlds, He is Vishnu swarup, by the name Dhanvantari empowered to heal the Jiva souls.``


``The origins of the ancient healing science known as Ayurveda are lost in cosmic antiquity. According to the ancient text Caraka-samhita, this ``Science of Life and Longevity`` is eternal and is revealed in each universe in each of its infinite cycles of creation and destruction. This extremely rare appearance of God is recorded in the Vedic literature of ancient India.``

Education in Ayurveda has a rich tradition. It was taught in the universities of Takshila and Nalanda in ancient times - the golden era of Ayurveda. However, it suffered a setback during medieval period and more so during British rule in India. Fortunately, Ayurveda has received a new impetus after independence and is on its way to revival.
