Ayurveda - Yoga Nutrition
The Knowledge for attaining Long Life

"In the great teaching of the Vedas,
there is no touch of sectarianism.
It is of all ages, climes and nationalities
and is the royal road for the attainment of the Great Knowledge. "
- Thoreau,
American Thinker

Ayur(life) Veda(science). Thus Ayurveda is the knowledge concerning the maintenance of a long and healthy life. We owe the research to two sages Charaka and Agnivesa. They outlined a science living and prolonging life without illness and to achieve self realization. Charaka has compiled 150 chapters on details of food and drink substances, detailed classification of disease, lines of treatment, use of drugs, diet and practices of achieving good health. Throughout the central theme of Vedic sciences are to use the body, mind and soul to service the real you (cosmic spirit).

Ayurvedic philosophy and teachings encourage people to follow a pure lifestyle, one that gives clarity, peace of mind and satisfaction.

Sensory and Sensuous Ayurvedic Cuisine
- Through our sensory aspects of taste, smell, visuals, music Ayurvedic cuisine delivers a sensuous (tantric) experience.
- The Ayurvedic tradition is at least 5,000 years old in India. It is an integrated and comprehensive system of health, diet, wellness and balance for the mind, body and spirit.
- When Ayurvedic principles are applied to health and diet, our world of food and nutrition can be perceived anew.  Many Indian traditional menus are based on these time tested theories about nutrition, natural law and holistic balance.  - The menu creatively use six tastes (or rasas) of Ayurvedic diet:  sweet, sour, salty, bitter, pungent and astringent.
- A balance diet in the Ayurvedic tradition does not revolve around fats, carbohydrates, proteins, calories, vitamins and minerals.  Ayurvedic Nutrition takes into account body tissues, water levels, salt levels, electrolytes in the body, gunas or properties of food, dosha or properties of the individual, tastes, qualities present in the food and food sadhana or assimilation by our body.

Ayurveda is a science of the individual.

A book that I would recommend for learning Ayurveda is Perfect Health : The Complete Mind/Body Program for Identifying & Soothing the Source of Your Body's Reaction by Dr. Deepak Chopra
