Ayurveda at Shin Shiva Ayurvedashram

Ayurveda is an Indian system of medical treatment that has evolved over millenniums. Culled from ancient Vedic literature and refined through centuries of painstaking practice, Ayurveda is the synthesis of human knowledge about various physical and mental ailments that afflict mankind, and the herbal based preventive/remedial options available to combat them.

Ayurveda is literally the combination of two Sanskrit words: Ayu meaning Life, and Veda meaning Knowledge. Like every great body of knowledge, the origin of Ayurveda is lost in hoary history. For the wise men who devoted their entire lives to the study of life sustaining medicines, Ayurveda was not about defying death. Rather it was about prolonging youth and keeping diseases at bay.

Ayurveda is a living growing body of knowledge, which promotes positive health, natural beauty and long life. What differentiates Ayurveda from other systems of medicines is its very approach to treatment. Taking a holistic view, an Ayurvedic practitioner treats the patient - body, mind and soul - rather than the disease, and aims at restoring the natural harmony and balance of the individual. Herbal remedies, external therapies, diet control, yoga, meditation and life style adjustments form part of the Ayurvedic package.


Yoga at Shin Shiva Ayurvedashram

Within the body, exists a series of minor and major energy centers, called chakras. The word chakra is Sanskrit for "wheel" or "disk". Each of the seven major chakras has its' own distinct character and relates to a unique aspect of our being. The chakras correlate to levels of consciousness, body functions, colors, elements, sounds, and much more. The blockage or energetic dysfunction in the chakras is believed to give rise to physiological, emotional, and spiritual disorders.

Anatomically, the seven major charkas are located either along, or just in front of, the spine following a central energy line called the Sushumna. Associated with the chakras is a latent subtle energy called kundalini. At the base of the spine lies the first chakra, called the Muladhara. Within the first chakra, latent consciousness-energy called the kundalini-shakti exists. The Kundalini-shakti can be aroused and directed up the Sushumna. This energy can ascend through each chakra until it reaches the seventh or crown chakra, called the Sahasrara. Within the crown chakra, the kundalini shakti unites with Paramashiva, the Supreme Shiva, bringing one to a state of oneness with the Absolute.
