From East to West

What is Ayurveda?

"Ayurveda is not only the ancient Indian science of preventative health and healing but also a philosophy of living. Rarely treating the symptoms. Ayurveda cures y removing the cause of disease. From the rich legacy left us by the Rishis, we learn what we are now coming to know again in the West: transgressions against nature's law, against our own inner wisdom, are the cause of all disease.

The disease may be either physical or karmic in origin. Physical diseases are due to engaging in excessive use of our senses, improper eating or ignoring the cycles of the seasons of our age. Karmic diseases result from incorrect actions performed in this or previous lifetimes. Around the eighth century in India, when rebirth became recognized as a truth, it became understood that the physical body was the only part of us that dies. Our psychic instrument, or antahkarana, which is composed of the intellect, mind, and ego, or ahamkara, travels with us lifetime after lifetime until we attain final liberation, or moksha".

Yoga & Martial Arts

What is Yoga?

Yoga is our intimate connection with the whole universe, with eternal realms even beyond the manifested universe, and with our own being’s endless capacity to love. "The original meaning of the word yoga is «the action of anointing or putting the yoke on the ox». In fact, the Castilian word yoke corresponds etymologically with Sanskrit yoga.

For Patañjali the word yoga does not has, therefore, the sense of union with the divinity or the universal spirit, as followers of the vedānta, but that of putting the mind under the yoke of yoga practice, in order to control it and purify it. In fact, one of the most common meanings of the word yoga is that of «application», and hence «resource, technique, method, practice, discipline». Yoga is therefore a specific practice or technique, a application of mind and body to a discipline to achieve a result. In Patañjali yoga, this result is not union with God, but quite the contrary, the isolation of the consciousness that is achieved by abolishing the identity between the spirit (puruṣa) and the primordial matter (prakṛti).
