Ancient Healing System — Ayurveda

One of the great systems of thought and practice that India has produced is the ancient healing system of Ayurveda. Along with Yoga, Ayurveda represents an exhaustive internally consistent logic and understanding of the science of life. Ayurveda, or Ayur Vidya, means the knowledge of life.

No country any less richly textured could have given birth, thousands of years ago, to Ayurveda, and no other country could have prompted the sometimes bewildering multiplicity of principles and practices that have sprouted from Ayurveda’s roots. — Robert Svoboda

Raga Approach also entails Existential Well-being and Aesthetic Well-being.
