Yoga and Ayurveda

Satyendra Prasad Mishra (Author)

This monograph discusses in detail the classical concepts of the science of Yoga, its ideology and practical aspects.  It brings out speciafically the health and therapeutic potential of yoga and deliberates on future scope of yoga as a health science and therapy.  It puts powerful arguments to suggest yoga as a branch of Ayurveda, the ancient science of life.  For the purpose of comparison the monograph adds few chapters on the fundamental principles of Ayurveda highlighting the basic and applied similarities and alliedness of the two great oriental sciences, Yoga and Ayureda.  Yoga and Ayurveda, both deal with the Sada Dhatvatmaka Purusa as described by Caraka in relation to the Brahma; the individual vs the universe or the self vs non-self.  It is in this context that Ayurveda propounds two broad stream of Cikitsa viz.-I) Naisthiki Cikitsa, 2) Laukiki Cikitsa.  The Naisthiki Cikitsa is the branch of Ayurveda which deals with spiritual aspects of life and helps man in getting absolute freedom from pain and suffering of the world through absolute reality.  The Laukiki Cikitsa deals with the gross ill health and its care through drugs, diet, exercise etc.  the persent day science of yoga essentially falls into the realm of Naisthiki Cikitsa, although Yoga also contributes a lot in Laukiki Cikitsa.
