- Evolution of Ayurved
Tracing the origin of the Ayurvedic medicine is a very difficult task. However the origin of
as an oral tradition can be safely presumed to be around 6000 B.C.
A clear and detailed picture of medicine prior to
period is difficult to ascertain. The mythology of the evolution of
prior to the
era states that the
Science of life
and the life itself were simultaneously originated. In fact, Lord Bramha, the Creator of the Universe, remembered this
Science of Life
and gifted it to the human beings through the tradition of Gods and the great sages.
Ayurved is an ancient science wherein ‘Ayu’ means life and ‘Veda’ means knowledge. Its origin can be traced back right to the evolution of civilisation on earth. Thousands of years ago India’s greatest sages established their knowledge of life in the oldest scriptures known to mankind viz.
Rigveda, Yajurveda, .Atharvaveda and Samaveda.
The fundamentals of Ayurved can be found in all this scriptures. Ayurved is regarded as the Upaveda or sub-scripture of Atharvaved as it contains abundance of information on how to keep oneself healthy and to combat diseases.
The fundamental philosophy of Ayurved says that suffering is disease and contentment is good health. No human being can be called healthy if he does not posses a sound
, a sound
and a sound
(soul). Ayurved describes the whole way of life; it narrates how one should keep healthy by advising on smallest things of personal hygiene and social conduct. The sages of Ayurved emphasised on the importance of preventive medicine and this was achieved by developing the individual's own immune system to fight against all possible diseases..
Ayurvedic healing has two levels; one for the layman and self-care, and the other for the healer. The first outlines a general constitutional or life-style treatment for health enhancement and disease prevention. It gives many common or home-remedies for different diseases. It is only when our life-style is out of harmony that more severe diseases arise, and more specialised and complicated health care becomes necessary.
The second level provides some of this specialised Ayurvedic medical knowledge and outlines more technical and complicated remedies. These may be better utilised by a health care professional.
Ayurvedic medicines consist of various natural herbs and minerals and are rapidly gaining acceptance all over the world. The Ayurved today is part of a new movement towards a global medicine that includes the best developments from all lands.
