In this section some fundamental principles of the ancient Indian medicine Ayurveda.


Ayurveda is the composition of two sanscrit words Ayur  life and Veda  knowledge, its meaning is therefore science of life. The tradition wants the teachings of this ancient medicine to be reached by the Avatar (divine incarnation) Dhanvantari.
It is an ancient system which was improved during the course of time that drew its principles from the Vedic knowledge. It has been widely used in India over the millennia and is still one of the medicines most commonly used in the Indian subcontinent.

Ayurveda is a medicine which deals man in his physical, mental and spiritual aspects, trying to heal the sick, prevent disease and maintain our own equilibrium state.

 

According to Ayurveda the universe is governed by 5 elements: EARTH - WATER - FIRE - AIR - ETHER. In our body these elements govern the 3 Dosha, the physical structure and the 3 Guna the mental structure.

The balance of all these elements determines the state of health.

 

In Ayurveda are described seven types of tissues of the body, known as saptadhatu. It is plasma (rasa dhatu), blood (Rakta dhatu), meat (mamsa dhatu), adipose tissue (medha dhatu), bone (asthi dhatu), the marrow and the nervous system (majja dhatu), and reproductive tissue (semen or female reproductive tissue) (sukra dhatu).

 

The eight branches of Ayurveda are:

The 96 aspects of life

 

According to the Siddha tradition there are 96 aspects of life supported by the individual soul, the Purusha.

 

Life is lived through the 5 motor organs, Pancha Karmendriya, which correspond to the 5 senses and the 5 elements.

 

  

The organs of action allow acting in the physical world and then allowing the mind to make new experiences. They are expressive and their receptive capacity is given by the sense organs. The organs of action are more related to the five gross elements while the sense organs correspond more to Tanmatras or thin elements.

 

Given that requires movement, the body has five hollow organs, 5 Asayas.

 

 

The Asayas are important because the body needs energy that is forfeited through food to generate movement.

 

All of us live by 5 types of actions:

 

 

The 5 actions of the body, walking, working, talking, release and procreating, are governed by Tridoshas derived by Pancha Mahabhutas.

 

 

All matter consists of the five elements, Pancha Mahabhutas, which are understood as levels of density of matter itself.

 

 

The elements are the means which are necessary for the expression of Cosmic Intelligence.

 

 

To have the experience of the outside world need the 5 sensory organs, Pancha Jρanendriyas; each of them corresponds to a quality of sense (Tanmatra) and an element

 

Ear – hearing organ – ether

Skin – organ of touch – air

Eye – organ of sight – fire

Tongue – organ of taste – water

Nose – organ of smell – earth

 

The sense organs, also called organs of knowledge, allow the experience of the outside world. It is noteworthy that through the sense organs we can assimilate the Pancha Tanmatras as subtle elements then they feed on a subtle level; that's why there is the Vedic dictum "what you see, you become."

 

The sensory organs are generated by the 5 senses, Pancha Tanmatra, derived from the interaction of Sattva, Rajas and Tamas.

 

Shabda – hearing – ether

Sparsha – touch – air

Rupa – sight – fire

Rasa – taste – water

Gandha – smell – earth

 

 

I Pancha Tanmatra creano i mondi manifesti in forma di seme; essi creano il mondo causale o ideale, il mondo delle idee che precede qualsiasi forma di espressione materiale. 

 

Senses work through the 10 Vayus.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Vayus flow through 12 main Nadis.

 

Brahma Nadi which are related chakras along the spine and brain.

Citra and Vajra Nadis creating Viyana Vayu and are linked to the cerebellum, spine and peripheral nerves.

Ida, Pingala and Jiva Nadis that result in Udana and Prana Vayus and are related to the lungs, heart and thyroid.

Pusha and Gandhari Nadis creating Samana Vayu and are linked to the stomach, small intestine, pancreas, spleen and liver.

Hasti and Alambusha Nadis that, along with Shankini and Kuhu Nadis, originate Apana Vayu and are related to the reproductive organs.

Shankini and Kuhu Nadis related to the colon, kidneys and bladder.

 

The 12 Nadis branch out from 3 Mandalas (centers).

 

 

 

 

Vayus, Nadis and Mandalas are ruled by the 7 Chakras.

 

The chakras are located along the spine and are the seven major energy centers in the human body; each of them corresponds to specific features in both physical and spiritual.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The 7 Chakras derive from 5 types of bodies, Pancha Kosham.

 

 

The soul sustains all bodies through the consciousness of intellect, thoughts, energy and structure.

 

The 5 Koshams have 2 types of action, 2 Karmas.

 

 

I 2 Karma producono 3 tipi di scorie, 3 Mala. The 2 Karmas produce 3 types of slag, 3 Malas.

 

Anavam – main ego (wanting to sleep, wake up, hating, loving, enter in meditation)

Maya – illusion, ignorance

Kama – greed, too much desire.

 

We all live subjected to ego, illusions and desires. Although we have no longer desires, we continue to live because we are subjected to Maya, and also eliminating Maya, the ego continues to persist; to go beyond we should tend towards the Purusha burning the ego. The process of the manifestation takes place through a series of successive divisions with which various creatures and different objects come into existence. Ahamkara more than a reality in itself is a process, a series of thoughts that divide, not a real entity. This is a division power that is essential to the manifestation of multiplicity; it is a stage of evolution, but is not the fundamental truth or true nature of creatures that is represented by the Pure Consciousness beyond personification. Through ego the basic potentialities of the matter (Prakriti) and the fundamental laws contained in the Cosmic Intelligence (Mahat) take a specific form. The basic qualities of nature differ in three groups of five: five senses, five organs of action and five elements. These arise from Ahamkara through Sattva, Rajas and Tamas, the Triguna.

If Buddhi is intelligence that allows to turn the gaze to deep and inner nature of things, the ego, which by its nature is outwards, creates the mind and the senses, tools that allow the individual to operate. Ayurveda places great emphasis on understanding of the ego and the inevitable distortions created by its influence; a proper understanding of the ego causes our judgment remains balanced and our actions are aimed at the universal good. Break free from the ego's domain causes the dissolution of all psychological disorders and physical diseases.

 

The 3 Malas are controlled by 3 Gunas.

 

Sattva – pure-light, soul, white, purity, serenity

Rajas – dynamic-heat, ego, red, dynamism, activity

Tamas – inert-structure, body, black, quiet, inertia

 

If we want to sleep, Nidra, serves Tamas; If we are to be alert, Jakrata, serves Rajas; If we want to be in Ecstasy, Turyam, serves Sattva.

 

The 3 Gunas have 9 types of tastes, sensations, Nava Rasa.

 

Viruppu – love, joy, let in, acceptance, East

Veruppu – hatred, dismiss, let out, rejection, West

Santosham, Sukam – happiness, joy, comfort

Dukham – sadness, suffering

Krodham – resentment, anger

Shantham – serenity, tranquility

Viram – dignity, strength, courage

Bhayam – fear

Hasyam – humor, irony in a positive, fun, laughs, taking life lightly

 

Shantham: this tranquility can take over in a state of silence. This state happens naturally for a very short time, so that we are not able to recognize it; in meditation practice we try to bring this state to longer times and to recognize it.

 

We find the 9 Rasas in 5 types of status, conditions, Pancha Avastha.

 

Jakrat – waking state; be ready, alert. Consciousness is associated with the mental and to the senses.

Svapna – dream state; with eyes open or closed. Consciousness is in the subtle body, associated with the mental.

Sushupti – state of dreamless sleep; be asleep, peaceful, calm. Consciousness is in the causal body.

Turiya – state of meditation; deep consciousness, ecstasy, how to enjoy life outside or on inside, blissful. Consciousness is in the great

causal body - Mahakarana.

Turiyatita – state of pure consciousness - Unmesha; silence, total annulment which can be all the other consciousnesses.

 

Avastha is the state of the soul. In all the states is used the consciousness but the kind of state depends on the environment. The first three states are associated with Avidya (ignorance); Vikriti with the first two and the third with Prakriti. Pure consciousness is not taking part of normal life, goes beyond; even if one lives the life, he lives differently. Turiya is the state of deep meditation, Samadhi; Turiyatita is the state of meditation in life.

 

The 5 Avasthas live in 4 aspects, subtle causes, the 4 Andakarnis.

 

Manas – superficial mind, virtual mind, psyche, emotions

Siddam – subconscious, deep mind; memorizes

Buddhi – individual intelligence

Ahamkar – ego

 

A sattvic ego empties siddam while a tamasic ego fills. Siddam andakarna is always present because there is always the karma or destiny of the soul.

 

These 96 aspects are supported by the soul, Atma, Purusha.

 


3 DOSHA (PHYSICAL STRUCTURE)

 

3 GUNA (MENTAL STRUCTURE)

 

VATA (light - soft - dry)

 

SATTVA (light - thin - quickening - virtue)

 

PITTA (fluid - warm - active)

 

RAJAS (activity - passion)

 

KAPHA (cold - dense - slow)

 

TAMAS (ignorance - inactive - heavy - obstruction)

 

 

 

 

THE 3 DOSHA

 

 

 

 

QUALITY OF THE 3 DOSHA


VATA           ETHER + AIR


ROUGHNESS - LIGHTNESS - THINNESS - COLDNESS - MOBILITY - DRYNESS

HEAT - ACUTENESS - SPICY TASTE - LIQUIDITY - BAD ODOR - LIGHT GREASINESS - ACID TASTE


KAPHA         EARTH + WATER


HEAVINESS - COLDNESS - SOFTNESS - SLOWNESS - GREASINESS - STABILITY - SWEETNESS

 

 

Vata is motion: anything that is inherent to the movement tends to increase this Dosha while everything is static tends to stabilize it.

 

Pitta is fire, all that is heat tends to increase this Dosha while all that is refreshing tends to pacify it.

 

Kapha is static: all that is heavy tends to aggravate this Dosha while everything is light tends to pacify it.

 

 

Factors of increase of Dosha

 

Taking into consideration the standards of conduct, there are actions and particular conditions that cause the increase of Dosha because of the quality that they express.

DIETS

 

* Rasa (tastes)
* Diets for: Constitution VATA - Constitution PITTA - Constitution KAPHA
* Physical exercise for the 3 dosha

 

To establish of what type of constitution we are and to establish a diet is good routine to address to an ayurvedic physician.


In this section the matter is treated in general line to better understand the principles and the techniques of Ayurveda.

 

The diet, being of primary importance, has a big consideration in ayurvedic medicine. In western country is given more importance to the quantity of calories of the food and the classification in fat, carbohydrates, proteins etc., with little consideration on the digestive ability of the consumer, on the season, on the mental state of the individual or on the equilibrium of the energies in body and mind. According to the ancient Indian medicine the diet is above all a tool of preservation of the state of health and prevention of illness. That's why we cannot ignore these important factors that so heavily influence our psycophysic equilibrium.
