Ayurveda: The Ultimate Medicine
Ayurveda: The Ultimate Medicine
Description
From the Jacket :

Ayurveda is one of the most ancient medical systems where the concept of specialization originated - be it in surgery, internal medicine or psychiatry; they all evolved in Ayurveda before anywhere else in the world. This system, also called the mother of medicine, focuses not only on eliminating the disease but on providing a holistic cure of the patient, propounding his total well-being. It considers the human body as a miniature cosmos and yearns to help strike a balance between the various forces, both outside and within the body. This book attempts to break the myth that Ayurveda at best is a supplementary or an alternate medicine and avers that it indeed is the ultimate in medicine.

The knowledge of Ayurveda is compared to an ocean. Just as the ocean allows rivers and streams to flow into it and enriches itself, similarly, Ayurveda welcomes all other sources of medicine to enrich and enlarge its own scope. Sophisticated and specialized scientific and technical methods can be easily and smoothly integrated into the basic principles of Ayurveda. Just as the ocean does not lose its individuality when it assimilates, similarly, the intrinsic quality of Ayurvedic aphorism (sutras) is not siturbd in any way when modern methods are added; on the contrary, the Ayurvedic system of medicine gets strengthened by this fusion of ideas.

I fall in love with Exotic India last year when I found accidentally a beautiful blue kaftan with a little printed elephant on it. Since then I am a fan of this lovely place and I am sure that I will be a lifetime. I feel that my relation with Exotic India is special because I like every article, they are unique, made with passion and each piece relates a magical, mythical story. I want to thank you for your promptitude by shipping so fast my order, it arrived directly from India to Romania (Transylvania) on the fourth day after I have set my order. I did not expect it so soon, my heart was filled with joy by such an amazing surprise. I appreciated it! I wish all the joy and beauty you bring to me turn back to you!
Noemi
I would like to thank Exotic India for the very superior packaging and shipment of my order. Much appreciated! The order arrived very quickly. Many thanks!! I will always check Exotic India first for books in the future.

Hello Vipin K., thanks a lot for replacing the 4th volume of the Srimad Bhagavatam and sending me a faultless copy of the book so fast. The faulty pagination (missing and mixed up pages) is due to the bookbinding, of course, you are not to blame. Your customer service is excellent. And as your selection of books is extraordinary, I'm already looking forward to the next books that will reach me, perfectly packed and in best condition as always. ;-)
Walter
I really found this site to be very well designed, and the number of items amazing. From my careful inspection of the high resolution photos, the quality of work appears to be outstanding.
