Today the whole world is in the grip of dangerous corona epidemic.
Many plagues have afflicted humanity in the past, but still the corona pandemic is the first of the 21st century and reflects our information technology regarding its spread and treatment.
In this way it is unique in many ways and it is difficult to compete.
Ayurveda warns of collective diseases that can arise from the wrong relationship of human beings with our natural environment, elements and ecosystems.
According to Ayurveda, our individual prana is associated with the prana of the earth, which begins with other human beings and which extends from the soil into the atmosphere to animals, plants and forests.
If the integrity of the human biosphere, If the earth’s immune system is disrupted or impaired, we do not have a strong immune system to resist disease.
Clearly the biological basis of life on Earth is being compromised today.
Our natural environments are becoming endangered and in some cases destroyed.
Simultaneously, we as human beings are now in doubt about who we really are or what the ultimate purpose of our life really is, including our relationship with nature.
Ayurveda is still more relevant in this technological age because it teaches us how to be in sync with the universal prana and mind, allowing us to master all technologies and our own thoughts and feelings as well.
It helps us to restore both our physical and psychological immunity so that we do not fall prey to external forces and influences.
As a natural healing tradition originating from Yoga and Vedanta, Ayurveda adopts pranayama, mantra and meditation and brings in their healing applications.
Ayurveda is the medicine of yoga, through which we can connect ourselves with the whole life.
Ayurvedic study begins with the philosophies and principles of Yoga and Samkhya as the basis for the approach to body and mind.
Ayurveda has long been used in India in conjunction with other systems of medicine, including Yoga, Naturopathy, Siddha, Unani, and the AYUSH system of Tibetan medicine.
Globally, Ayurveda is being used in conjunction with modern medicine, chiropractic, psychology, massage, nutrition, herbal medicine and many other methods.
Yet Ayurveda has the ability to integrate its different identities and different forms of treatment with a broader view of life.
It goes beyond treating the right disease for the body and mind, both for the individual and the society.
It not only connects us to medical healing centers but also to universal life and energy.
This is the reason why Ayurveda is needed today for our health and psychological challenges.
