Yoga and Ayurveda - The Art of Living

India | Updated -Jun 28, 2020, 4:52 AM

Ayurveda is a sister science to Yoga. They both originate from the same “Veda”, the same knowledge or science. It is the science of life or longevity, which teaches about the power and the cycles of nature, as well as the elements and how our life will be happy, healthy and peaceful if we live according to these rules of nature. Ayurveda takes care of your physical and mental well-being, Yoga about the mental and spiritual one. At the same time it promotes a strong, healthy and flexible body. Ancient documents state that “the foundation of Yoga should be Ayurveda and the fruit of Ayurveda should be Yoga.” Ayurveda is one of the four Upavedas or secondary Vedic teachings, along with Gandharva Veda (music), Sthapatya Veda (directional science), and Dhanur Veda (martial arts). These Upavedas apply Vedic knowledge along specific lines to supplement the Vedic quest for wholeness and liberation. Ayurveda is probably the most important of these because it addresses all aspects of healing and well-being for body and mind.

 

                        Both yoga and ayurveda have their origin in the Vedic tradition of India, and both are a means to gain better health.Yoga is not originally or inherently a medical system. It does not address either physical or psychological disease or their treatment in a primary manner. Yoga aims at relieving spiritual suffering, which it defines according to the kleshas or spiritual afflictions starting with ignorance (avidyà) of our true nature as pure consciousness, which leads us to a false identification of ourselves with our transient bodies and minds.
