The Power of the Mind in Ayurveda
Swami Dayananda Saraswati says,
‘Hope is nature’s way of enabling us to survive so that we can discover nature itself’
Beyond all the claims by both Allopathic and Ayurvedic medical practitioners of curing ailments effectively, if not completely, it is the hope in ‘hope’ and the will to survive within the warrior, often called the patient, that matters. Let us take you through the philosophy we subscribe to.
According to the Vedas, the six qualities that are necessary to succeed in any venture are proper effort, perseverance and courage, knowledge of the given pursuit, skill and resources and the capacity to overcome obstacles. The Vedas go on to explain further that a human birth is not easy to achieve. Once the human body materializes whether we understand it as due to karma or a cause of natural selection the factor of free will and the power of self-reflection always come into play. The human is the only one endowed with the capacity to make choices, as far as we (humans!) know. Each choice we make fuels the turning of the wheel of karma. Once we recognize this innate power, we must take responsibility for all our actions. The Atman, which is the immortal spirit in each of us, continues, as do the collective memories of all our lives, which serve as essential guides through all time. Our choices and actions determine the nature of our rebirths. We are fully accountable for the choice to die, like the choice to live. This is when Ayurvedic intervention will facilitate a perfect living. And we are here, in Singapore, to enable this facilitation for you.
