‘Ayurveda’ means the knowledge and science of life. Initially, it was a verbal tradition passed on by word of mouth from generation to generation. The first written texts appeared approximately 3000 years ago in India and its philosophy expands the principles which govern man in relation to the universe. Its teachings are based on the central idea that if these principles are followed, one is able to maintain a balanced state of health. It encapsulates the concepts of spirit, mind and body, the environment and the human being, materials and energy, diet and personality, in a practical and holistic approach to the health problems we face today.
Ayurveda will be the subject of an on-line video conference given by Dr Asvin Barot, in India, and Dr Nikolaos Kostopoulos, in Greece, on Sunday 11th February.
