Ayurvedic healing – quote from the master – Adam Baktai
“Ayurveda (Sanskrit expression, means: “the science of life”) is a 5000 years old holistic healing method, which focuses more on prevention rather than “just” curing illnesses.
The therapist using the holistic approach of Ayurveda doesn’t only cure the disease, the sick organ or body part, but its healing the person and aims to restore and sustain health; all of this in a way that is tailored to meet the individual characteristics and need of the patient. This is the very definition of Ayurveda.
ayur = life
veda = knowledge / science
Ayurveda = Science of life
It is unclear when the ancient indian way of healing known as Ayurveda today was established, as it was passed mouth to mouth for a long time as well as spread through the Vedic books.
The key mainstreams are known through two books, Charaka Samhita which focuses on Internal Medicine and Susrutha Samhita which also describes Surgery. They are both dated to originate between 1,000 BC and 1,000 AD.
Ayurvedic healing primarily focuses on preserving health. Uniquely it divides our body to types of temper and each of these are assigned with the correct method of nutrition, exercise and lifestyle to help us maintain balance in our lives. Of course Ayurveda as a healing method also focuses on curing illnesses and disease. Ayurveda uses complex detoxiation processes as well as encouraging correct nutriotioning and healing with herbal cures.
Ayurveda is a traditional healing method, which uses ancient practises from India, relying on herbs and natural substances to resolve health issues and improve general well-being. If you prefer organic solutions instead of artificial medicine – this is the place for you 🙂

“India is the only country in the world where miracles still exist because people believe in them” (Germanus Gyula)
Whilst still living in Europe I have heard and read a lot about India, Hindu mythology and the world of the increadible East. My favourite child-time series was 80 days around the world telling the adventures of Willie Fogg who travelled to placed like Calcutta.
I moved to Mumbai (Bombay) in 2011 and soon discovered that no tales, documents or pictures could ever describe that rich-colourful-disturbing world that India is. Past-present-and future are closely intwined in the day to day life.
18-20 million people with and average annual income of 762 dollars which equals to about 144,000 HUF and despite all this Mumbai makes it to the top 50 most expensive cities in the entire world.
You will find luxurious homes right next to families living on the street. Countless numbers of luxury cars like Austin Martin, Rolls Royce, Jaguars etc right next to the ox-carts and hand pushed trolleys the same as a few hundred years back in time.
India is a place to find everything in one location from the desert to the Himalayas, people from all kind of religions happily living next to one another, one festival followed by the next celebrating different Gods – Ganpati festival in respect of Ganesh, Govinda festival to celebrate Krishna, a new story for every momentum of life. The thousands years old teaching of Veda told as bedtime stories for children.
Time has stopped in this corner of the world and although modernization is slowly finding its way into day to day life, everything is closer to nature here. People eat more healthy food – dominantly all made of fresh vegetables.
Ayurvedic healing and herbal mixes made of all natural components combined with a little magic and positive belief provide a cure for every illness wether that’d be a snake-bite, heart or vascular disease or a simple lack of vitamin C.
If you’d like to read more about India I would heartily recommend Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts – Shantaram which is very accurate reflection of this so unique world.
For those taking a deeper interest in Ayurvedic Medicine or Hindu religion and mythology I would highly recommend to get in touch with Adam Baktai and check out the programs in Bhakti Kutir where you can listen to stories from the Mahbarata or learn about Shiatsu, spiritual life and of course the teachings of the Veda.
