Publisher's Summary

For more than 4,000 years, the people of India have looked to Ayurveda as a pathway to vibrant health and increased longevity. This ancient healing science is treasured as a gift from the Vedas (the world's oldest sacred texts). Ayurveda offers all people a practical way to achieve self-realization, a way that is based not on constantly changing data but on the eternal forces of the universe.

In Ayurveda, you will learn how to apply this fascinating system for total wellness to your own life. Your personal instructor in this audio study course is Dr. Vasant Lad, founder of the Ayurvedic Institute in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Drawing from his work in both India and America, Dr. Lad leads you to a clear understanding of Ayurveda and its life-enhancing powers. You will learn to see your mind, body, and spirit as a microcosm of the universe itself. The five elements present in all matter also exist in each individual. By learning the cosmic laws that govern these elements, you can strengthen and energize yourself - effectively and naturally.

From principles of self-healing and proper food combinations to the cosmic laws that unite all consciousness, Ayurveda makes it easy to explore this ancient healing art.

Valuable info. Strong accent.

I find the ayurvedic system very interesting and am wanting to experiment with it. This book gives a nice overview of the subject while delivering some wisdom.

The narrator was a little difficult to understand. I usually am pretty good at understanding accents, however I found myself reflecting about as often on the question "what was that word he just said?" and on the information presented.

Wonderful knowledge

This books reads as a series of lessons. They are told almost casually as if I were sitting in a lecture hall. I really loved the format and the flow. The knowledge inside was very useful and I will definitely listen to this multiple times. The author and narrator has an accent yes but I could understand him fine.

Should have got help for narration

The author is well known in the field of Ayurveda. I was looking forward to educating my self and therefore purchased the book. However, it was so difficult to listen to as the accent is so strong and pronunciation is almost incomprehensible. There are grammatical errors in English. Why couldn't the author get professional help for narration? The book could have been enjoyed and helped so many more people.

Looved it!

This topic is massive. Vasant Lad is so good at simplifying and making ayurveda digestible 😂. He has a passionate way of speaking and the subject is so fascinating. Heal yourself and know your self, that's what ayurveda enables you to do and Vasant Lad really taught me a lot!

Gorgeous!

Such a beautiful soul, Dr Lad is today’s foremost expert in the instruction of Ayurveda, this book is so wonderful both for the seasoned student of the science and those looking for an introduction. It is such a gift to have him Narrate it as well. Having studied with Dr Lad, I say first hand that he is a living master and an embodiment of so many divine attributes. This book is worth your time.

Good introduction to Ayurveda

This book gave a really good introduction to Ayurveda. This is what I was expecting. The flow of how one intricate info leads to other is really made it simple to understand. Although I would have loved to listen to how to identify one’s Prakruti and if there is any imbalance. However it was a good and quick listen.

A great initiation to a knowledge currently apart from western society.

Vasant Lad has a true embodiment of love in his delivery of the aspects of the human makeup. If you are wondering how to curb your lifestyle in a way that compliments you best you must first understand what your makeup is and Dr. Lad will lead you to that understanding. Very grateful for this find. Most grateful to the healing powers embodied in this text. Love it.

interesting read

It is a fascinating introduction to Ayurveda. It can be a little dry times but the repetitive nature actually allows you to learn more.

Amazing book on Ayurveda

I think this is one of the best books I have listened on Ayurveda until now. I really liked the chapter regarding the first stages of the desease and the last chapter that gives insight on pregnancy and breastfeeding.
