  1. knowledge is human heritage not western . There is wisdom all over , we are
    one human nation but some exploit the others ruthlessly .British continue
    to exploit many native peoples.

  2. This is an excellent presentation. We have the concept of totality of
    symptoms in homeopathy. There is some equivalence in the fine balance of
    three doshas in each individual as envisaged by ayurveda and the totality
    of symptoms as envisaged by homeopathy. Swami Ramdev has done a great
    service to humanity by simplifying breathing techniques and taking them to
    common people. The set of pranayams suggested by Swami Ramdev are fairly
    good. Though here the lady talks about individualizing pranayam.

  3. @kornigator True – I got really interested in Ayurveda after watching a
    movie about it and some clips on youtube. However, when I got a book on
    Ayurveda – I got slightly overwhelmed. I felt it was difficult, and put the
    book aside. Just couldn’t use it as I wanted to. Now, after wathcing this
    beautiful and intelligent women, I got it. I started reading the book, and
    I’m making ayurveda apart of my life!

  4. the osher lifelong learning institute doesnt even have a wikipedia entry.
    what kind of "institute" doesnt even have a wikipedia article? one that
    doesnt exist and is an advertising ploy. that kind!

  5. Ayurveda is an ancient school of thought. It was scientific when it was
    first conceptualized. There are ayurvedic products that have been shown
    effective under controlled conditions. Recall Frankenstein, "These were men
    to whose indefatigable zeal modern philosophers were indebted for most of
    the foundations of their knowledge."Frankenstein, Chapter 3
