As rich and as old as Indian culture Ayurveda has its roots in the ancient Vedic texts which are the very foundation of Indian culture. In the Vedas it emphasizes that a potential for immortality is every individual’s birthright as one prayer clearly states:
Lead me from darkness into light
Lead me from untruth into truth
Lead me from mortality into immortality
Just as we are of body mind and spirit, so are the ancient wisdom teachings describing the science of life and categorizing them into three bodies of knowledge: Ayurveda-working on the physical; Yoga-dealing with spirit; and Tantra-cleansing the mind.
