Arurveda, ancient Hindu Herbal Medicine, is not just about stretching your life (longevity), it is a science of ALIVENESS!
His holiness Sadhguru defines Ayurveda beautifully as means to have the necessary sense to understanding that among all things on our planet you should be able to recognize what kind of impact it has on you! See more insights on authentic Indian Ayurveda practices in 3 clips below.
Mad Rush To Copy Ayurveda Science like Yoga:
Recent trend shows; many Western countries are trying to adopt/copy this ancient Hindu healing practices like it happened in case of mushrooming of Yoga studios (which many Yoga experts says; they are not practicing REAL YOGA & its just for making Money or self-Branding)!
It has been fashion in West to copy scientific Vedic knowledge from Hinduism/Buddhism, translate Sanskrit information from hindu Vedas , Upanishads scriptures into nice English words and claim full credits through publications/talks/ Marketing /some experiments as if its their invention! There are number of cases in Mathematics, Material science, Yoga, Neuroscience, Ayurveda Herbal Medicines , Vedic wisdom, Scientific theories, Philosophies, etc to name it few.
Similarly , in case of Ayurveda, just by copying some herbal knowledge from India and trying to make it as western practice will not give ultimate healing benefits to patients. There should be change in lifestyle and attitude (as it is being practice in India) in order to get full effective healing.
