About Maharishi AyurVeda

Holistic approach

Maharishi AyurVeda is prevention orientated, free from harmful side effects and capable of treating disease at its source. It can legitimately claim to be both scientific and truly holistic, employing 20 systematic approaches to health from the angles of mind, body, behaviour and environment. Maharishi AyurVeda therapies do not conflict with either conventional or complementary methods, so they can be successfully employed alongside other systems of healing, if desired.

Intelligence and Matter

The power of the Maharishi AyurVeda approach to health is that it looks beyond the changing physical structure of the human body to the value of intelligence that directs and orchestrates this continuous flow of matter. The self-organising value of intelligence is the spark of life without which the body would be merely inert matter.

According to Maharishi AyurVeda the origin of all aspects of existence – mental and physical – is the field of pure intelligence or pure consciousness. Remarkably, this view is parallel to the position that modern science has now reached. The latest theories of quantum physics locate the basis of the physical universe in a single unified field, the properties of which are identical to those of the field of pure intelligence.

The Three Doshas

According to AyurVeda, our body and mind and the world around us are governed by three fundamental principles, or Doshas. These Doshas are called Vata, Pitta, and Kapha.

Vata is the principle of movement

The flow of air in our lungs, blood through our veins, thoughts within our mind, and every imaginable movement in nature, are governed by Vata Dosha.

Pitta is the principle of transformation and assimilation

When we digest food and it becomes assimilated into our cells, or when our mind assimilates fresh ideas, Pitta Dosha is involved.

Kapha is the structuring principle

A principle that gives solid form to all creation, from atoms to planets. Kapha Dosha gives our body solidity and physical strength.

Every aspect of our body is governed by the interaction of the three Doshas. Yet each of us are born with a different proportion of these principles. In AyurVeda the proportions of Doshas within each person are classified into separate mind-body types.

Some people inherently have a higher proportion of the movement principle and tend to think and move quickly. Some have more of the transforming principle and usually have a keen appetite for food. Others have more of the structuring principle and tend to put on weight easily.

Whatever balance of Doshas you were born with, as long as you stay in balance, you remain healthy. All the health strategies of AyurVeda are designed to help establish and maintain your Doshic balance.
