Ayurveda And Its Five Elements
Ayurveda is a Sister Science to Yoga that emerged from the sacred texts of ancient India, called the Vedas, meaning “Books of Wisdom.” When we look at the beauty of nature, five elements make the basis for the entire physical world.Ayurveda recognizes these as Space, Air, Fire, Water, and Earth— the very building blocks of all material existence.
What is Ayurveda?
The word Ayurveda comes from the Sanskrit word ‘Ayu’ meaning ‘Life’ and ‘Veda’ meaning ‘Knowledge’. Ayurveda is therefore, the science of life and holistic well-being. The oldest documented body of holistic medical knowledge in the world, it is a system of herbs, oils and plants originating in India over 6,000 years ago. The fundamental philosophy of Ayurveda rests on the concept of harmony – in Ayurveda, true health and wellness can only result from perfect harmony between the mind, body and spirit.
