Abstract

Ayurveda was perfected by astute minds and adept hands and is aimed at the physical, mental and spiritual well being of human beings. This is one of the great gifts of the sages of ancient India to mankind and is accepted as the oldest scientific medical system, with a long record of clinical experience. This is the original contribution of India (Bharatha) to the world and treats man as a whole-which is a combination of body, mind and soul. Primary aim of Ayurveda is to promote positive health in people and minimize the occurrence of disease. Ayurveda principles were relevant about 3000 years ago which holds good even today. The present study deals with the advantages to involve the principles of ayurveda into daily life that can make one’s life significantly more fulfilling and meaningful.
