Yoga and Ayurveda are two closely related spiritual or sacred sciences rooted in the Vedic tradition of India Ayurveda is the Vedic science of healing for both body and mind. Yoga is the Vedic science of Self-realization that depends upon a well-functioning body and mind. Both disciplines developed together and have always been used together. Yoga and Ayurveda are far more than physical exercise or bodily healing systems such as we tend to view then today. Yoga and Ayurveda addresses our entire nature, our greater life as a spiritual and cosmic being. It examines the broader scope of Ayurveda, Which includes not only physical health but also mental health and preparation for the spiritual life.

Yoga is one of the most extraordinary spiritual sciences that mankind has ever discovered. It is like a gem of great proportions, containing many facets whose light can illumine the whole of our lives with great meaning. Going back over five thousand years. It is one of the few spiritual tradition that has maintained an unbroken development throughout history, Yoga and Ayurveda can unfold all the higher powers that are accessible to us both internally and externally. Yogic methods cover the entire field of our existence - from the physical, sensory, emotional, mental, and spiritual to the highest Self-realization. It includes all methods of higher evolution in humanity-physical postures, ethical disciplines, breath control, sensory methods, affirmations and visualizations, prayer and mantra, and complex meditative disciplines. Yoga understands the nature and interrelationship of the physical, subtle and formless universes into the boundless infinite beyond time and space, and shows us how these also exist within each human individual. Yoga is the fruit of the teaching of the Himalayan sages, going back to what yogis regard as the beginning of this particular world age of cycle of civilization some ten thousand years ago. It is said to carry on the traditions of earlier, spiritually advanced teachings, which present civilizations have forgotten. Yoga is a distillation of wisdom from the myriad of sages through out the ages, the ongoing legacy of the spiritual urge of humanity, as adapted to the particular requirements of each age and each person. It is like a wide and luxurious banyan tree spreading out our higher potentials and giving them strength of nourishment. Like Yoga, with which it has grown, Ayurveda possesses a long history with many layers, much diversity and a continuous development that makes it relevant for all people and all times. Ayurveda is one of the most remarkable holistic medical systems in the world. It covers all aspects of health and well-being, physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. It includes all methods of healing from diet, herbs, exercise and lifestyle regimens to yogic practices and meditation. With its unique understanding of individual constitution, Ayurveda provides the insight for each person and each culture to create a way of life in harmony both with the world of nature and our higher self. It offers optimal health and development for all creatures by its profound understanding of natural law. Following in the footsteps of Yoga, which already has a world wide presence, Ayurveda is emerging as one of the most important global systems of mind-body medicine. It shows us how to understand the language of nature, the language of life, So that we can live in harmony with the greater universe, not evolving only for ourselves but bringing benefit to all creatures. Ayurveda contains the secrets not only for healing the individual but also for uplifting society, all creatures and the planet itself. Yoga and Ayurveda are sister sciences that develop together and repeatedly influenced each other throughout history. They are integral parts of the great system of Vedic knowledge which states that the entire universe is one self and that the key to cosmic knowledge lies within our own minds and hearts. As Vedic disciplines, yoga and Ayurveda work together to enhance their great benefits on all levels. They can be integrated with related Vedic or yogic sciences of astrology, architecture, music and language for an even broader approach. Yoga is firs and foremost a science of Self-realization. Its concern is spiritual practice, mainly through meditation, to take us beyond the sorrow and ignorance of the world. It teaches us how to move from our outer bodily and ego-bound identity to our immortal Self that dwells with the heart. Yoga provides the key to all spiritual development, which in the Vedic sense is gaining knowledge of our true nature beyond time, space, death and suffering.

Ayurveda is primarily a science of Self-healing aimed at re-living the disease of body and mind. This does not mean that Ayurveda is merely a method of personal healing which doesn't require help from therapists or doctors. In fact, Ayurveda says that medical practitioners are indispensable in dealing with the complexities of disease and the variability of health requirements. Ayurveda as self-healing means that it is concerned with restoring wholeness, with our inner Self as its ultimate goal, which is spiritual healing. Ayurveda's concern is alleviating both bodily and mental disease and promoting both physical and psychological well-being. Yet the ultimate goal of classical Ayurveda, like classical yoga, is Self-realization - the highest form of self -healing, Ayurveda shows us how to attain optimal health not for outer enjoyment but to provide a wholesome foundation and sufficient energy to pursue the yogic quest. The link between yoga and Ayurveda is prana, or the life-force. Yoga is the intelligence of prana seeking greater evolutionary transformation, while Ayurveda is its healing power, seeking to consolidate the life-systems it has already developed. Together, Ayurveda and yoga afford a complete discipline, one which can transform our existence from the physical to the deepest spiritual levels of our being with extraordinary vitality and activity on all levels.
