Maharishi Ayur-Veda: A Comprehensive System of Natural Medicine

HARI SHARMA


1995 CONFERENCE PAPER


Ayur-Veda is the oldest existing health care system, originating in the ancient Vedic civilization of India. The word Ayur- Veda is derived from two Sanskrit roots: ayus, meaning life or life span, and Veda, meaning knowledge or science. Ayur- Veda is therefore translated as the “science of life”, and is strongly prevention-oriented. Ayur-Veda has a detailed scientific literature consisting of classical medical texts, and an uninterrupted oral tradition of classical knowledge predating the written texts.
