“Reciting and Learning to Think Both Spiritually ánd Scientifically”
The ancients texts of Ayurveda and Yoga have long been the ultimate resource for teaching as well as learning tools within the millennia old traditions of these healing sciences. The texts are considered authoritative and to some extent also complete in themselves.
In Ayurveda this particularly counts for the Brihat Trayi – the Big Three – texts: Charaka Samhita, Sushruta Samhita and Ashtanga Hridaya Samhita. Each of those texts can be studied independently as complete ‘study tracks’. In Yoga there are several of these authoritative texts as well, for example the Hatha Yoga Pradeepika.
The Ashtanga Hridaya Samhita is a special Ayurveda text in itself, as it is said to represent the essential teaching form the other two main Ayurveda texts - in a very condensed and logically built up structure – written in poetry to remember it more effectively and to enhance the level of consciousness of the student.
In this seminar Dr. Vijith will explore with you some essential parts of these texts:
- Reciting and singing the texts together which is ‘spiritual therapy’ in itself!
- Going into the deeper esoteric understanding of some sutra’s (poetic verses)
- Diving into the science of deeper (self) thinking based on the underlying higher reasoning in these texts
- Comparing the Ashtanga Hridaya Samhita to the Hatha Yoga Pradeepika.
