  • Charaka

“Science of yoga and ayurveda is subtler than the science of medicine, because science of medicine is often victim of statistical manipulation.”

  • Amit Ray

“An individual that maintains a balanced state of the main elements of the body (including dosha and dhatu), adequate digestion (agni), proper excretion (mala kriya), blissful condition of soul (atma), satisfied senses (indriyan) and a happy state of mind (manas) is called a swasthya or healthy person.”

  • Sushruta Sutra

“Even an acute poison can become an excellent drug if it is properly administered. On the other hand even a drug, if not properly administered, becomes an acute poison.”

  • Charaka

“Ayurveda is the science of life and it has a very basic, simple kind of approach, which is that we are part of the universe and the universe is intelligent and the human body is part of the cosmic body, and the human mind is part of the cosmic mind, and the atom and the universe are exactly the same thing, but with different form, and the more we are in touch with this deeper reality, from where everything comes, the more we will be able to heal ourselves and at the same time heal our planet.”

  • Deepak Chopra

Mana – vanity,

Nairlajja – shamelessness,

Irshya – jealousy,

Atiraga – excessive desire

Abhidhyaya – ill will, malice.”
