I could be just another human. Or, I could actually be someone you might want to give an ear to, perhaps two. The great wrestling legend Muhammad Ali said ‘Don’t count the days, make the days count.’ So after years of a compelling wish to sit down and share with the masses about this phenomenal entity, I decided to delay no further. “Why the compulsive wish?” Ahh, I’ve witnessed miracles!! Not one, not two.. I see them happening everyday! I wish for these so called miracles to be commonplace for everyone, call me greedy.
So here, I’m about to unfold leaflets holding all the wonderful secrets. The leaflets are from the all encompassing body of knowledge, the phenomenal entity- Ayurveda. One may ask, “Yeah, I know Ayurveda! It’s all herbs and panchakarma. What’s so phenomenal there?” Well my friend, the truth is Ayurveda is a lot deeper than how it is commercially known. To begin with, a gross translation for the word ‘Ayurveda’ would be ‘The sacred knowledge of Life’.
‘The Sacred Knowledge Of Life’ or ‘The Science of Life’.. Yes, Ayurveda is no mere system of medicine. The leaflets contain the manual for living life! “Well, why is a manual even necessary? Everybody knows how to live!” That sure ‘was’ an absolute truth. Unfortunately, man disconnected himself and has forgotten how to live. Do you ever see an obese street dog, or a pigeon hogging on grains in such enormous quantities that it can’t move an inch, or a sparrow waking up late in the morning cos it’s a weekend!!?? You’ve never seen those or any similar instances and will never either. Have you ever noticed that only humans and the animals he has domesticated lead lives that are seemingly more comfortable, but actually lead a rather poorer quality of life when compared to others still guided by nature?
Let me present a situation to you. The morning alarm goes off, you mentally curse time and wish you could just sleep a little longer. Slowly dragging your body off your bed you merely go about your day. By the end of the day you’re exhausted and think only about hitting bed. Sounds like a normal day?
Let me present another situation to you. You wake up before sunrise sans an alarm, fresh as dew with bountiful energy. You work all through the day, and still have surplus energy at the end of the day. You sleep peacefully at night. How often do you experience this?
Which of those two situations would you prefer seeing yourself in? What if I told you that the second case could be you every day? Man has great energy within himself. Proper channelizing of this energy can yield incredible results.
Man, along with his self considered ally - his brain, deluded himself that he was progressing, believing that he was superior to Nature herself. And the consequence? There is hardly any healthy human left. And yeah, the world we live in today is undoubtedly upset with all the global warming, haphazard climate changes, pollution and what not. With women facing menopause as early as 29 years of age, 23 years old men passing away because of a cardiac arrest, increasing number of juvenile diabetics and numerous other unpleasant ailments on the rise, the future looks so unpredictable and gory! The problem that looks seemingly humongous, can not only be managed but also be prevented. And,
How is what Ayurveda tells us.
Until next time..
