Although Āyurveda Amṛitānām can be translated as “Ayurveda is for those who desire immortality”, for many of us, Ayurveda is viewed principally as an alternative way of preventing imbalance and restoring balance in our bodies by using natural preparations and following daily and seasonal guidelines on diet and behaviour.
In light of Maharishi’s Total Knowledge, the true span of Ayurveda, as restored in its completeness by Maharishi, is from point to infinity, Aṇoraṇīyān Mahato-mahīyān, smaller than the smallest and bigger than the biggest. Veda is knowledge, Āyuḥ means life – Ayurveda, Maharishi says, provides the complete knowledge of the span of life. It ranges from the use of the simplest herbal preparation to treat our latest cold, flu, or sore throat to the very mechanics by which the physiology of the individual and the whole cosmos is created, maintained, and ultimately unified in one field of immortality, perfect health!
Even in the context of the enormous achievements of modern medicine, the ancient exponents of Ayurveda – Charaka, Sushruta, and Vāgbhaṭa – laid out a science of great depth and breadth that has much to offer even in the modern world.
In this unique new online Workshop, we will explore this great range of Maharishi AyurVeda, with the involvement of some of the leading contemporary exponents of Maharishi AyurVeda. The Workshop will take the form of a Talk Show Series hosted again by Maharishi.Online’s own Dr Peter Warburton.
From the very foundations of Ayurveda at the dawn of creation – so clearly elucidated in Maharishi’s Total Knowledge – to the laws that govern the functioning of individual and cosmic life, to the principles that underlie every aspect of the human body and mind, their strengths and frailties, as well as very specific treatment recommendations to avert imbalance and restore balance. This Workshop will open up a vast vista of practical possibilities for all those joining us and wishing to make use of the very best of the many approaches of Maharishi AyurVeda to enrich their lives.
