Ayurveda is the world’s oldest known medical science, which originated in India over 5,000 years ago. The main source of this ancient knowledge is the Vedas or the divine books of knowledge propounded by spiritual rishis (sages) in India.

Ayurveda is not simply a healthcare system, but a form of lifestyle adopted to maintain perfect balance and harmony within the human existence. According to Ayurveda, life represents a combination of the Atma (soul), Mana (mind), Indriyan (senses) and Sharer (body). It revolves around the five elements (Panchamahabhutas) that constitute an individual's nature or Prakriti. This nature is determined by the vital balance of the three physical energies -Vata, Pitta and Kapha-and the tree mental energies Accordig to Ayurveda, the Pancha Mahabhutas (water, earth, sky, fire and air) are the main constituents of life. Although, the direction of Ayurveda for most people is in the direction of medicine, I am taking the view that we need to go further. We need to apply the five elements to the earth in the same way as we do for all other lying systems.
