H3 is kicking off 2012 with a powerful lecture on Ayurveda, the oldest system of medicine in the world that traces its roots to the Vedic period in ancient India. Ayurveda is a science of healthy living and maintaining balance within and around us. This lecture will be led by Dr. Aparna Bapat, a dedicated international Ayurvedic specialist, consultant, and educator.
Ayurveda teaches three levels of existence: The physical body performs actions directed by the mind; senses communicate information which the mind analyzes and intelligence interprets; the soul is our source of power, stability and bliss. The goal of Ayurveda is to reach harmony and integrity at these levels in order to maintain health. Ayurveda focuses on eating healthy seasonal and natural foods, coordinating with the rhythms of sun- moon cycles of day-night-seasons and having spiritual awareness in every thought and action. This is achieved by meditation and yoga. The result of following these principles is a healthy mind and body which is disease free with a peaceful happy soul.
Ayurveda is an ancient but very complete and advanced science of healing. It can relieve disturbances which cause imbalances that result in physical and psychological diseases. All things in the universe can be used for healing – plants, herbs, food, environmental qualities, water, sun, gem stones, mud, planets, prayers, mantras, and energy from our own willpower and mind.
