8 Truths about Ayurveda that We Turn to Day after Day
If you find yourself curious about Ayurveda or simply in search of some grounded truth to guide you, these principles from the ancient science can offer a north star.
Ayurveda is simple. And it is intuitive. Sure, when you lean deeply into the layered science you’ll discover endless facets, which is one of the reasons why it’s so incredible. But we leave navigating the endless nuances to trusted Ayurvedic practitioners and doctors when the our needs call. The day-to-day honoring of an Ayurvedic practice can be incredibly easy to follow—and very flexible for modern life.
Ayurveda is accessible and available to all. There is no price on it, no exclusive entryway. The Vedic texts imparted this wisdom for everyone to imbibe and prosper from no matter their ethnicity, religion, race, gender, or beliefs.
Ayurveda views each of us as individual universes, intrinsically linked with the greater universe around us. Our individual existence "is indivisible from the total cosmic manifestation," writes Dr. Vasant Lad.
We are changing, evolving, growing beings—always. Every minute we’re adapting to our environment and experiencing various emotions. We must honor that change by checking in with ourselves, eating seasonally, and expressing how we feel.
Ayurveda is fun. We strongly feel there is no other way to connect more deeply and understand ourselves more profoundly than by accepting the generous guidance of this 5000-year-old science.
