Overview for Ayurvediya Kriya Sarira: A Text Book of Ayurvediya Physiology, Volume II
The book gives a vivid account of Ayurvediya Kriya Sharira in a lucid language throwing enough new light on the current scientific validity of the unique holistic and pro nature approaches of Ayurveda to the understanding of the Ayurvedic physiology. Ayurvedic biology at large is based on its own three dimensional consideration integrating body, mind and the spirit in one sweep- “Sattwamatma Shariram cha trayam etat tridandawat”. Such a consideration makes this science very unique and puts it on a distinct pedestal which is very different than the conventional modern biology.
The basic tenets of Ayurvedic physiology comprise of the theories of Triguna, Tanmatra, Panchmahabhuta, Tridosha, Saptadhatu, Ojas, Agni, Ama and Srotas which constitute an unique holistic model of biology very different from the conventional biology based on its organ-system the laws of the genetics of these two fundamentally different approaches to the understanding of the same body system.
In living body nothing is separate from anything. Everything is the integral part of the organism. This is the quantum basis of the understanding of Ayurvediya Kriya Sharira.
