The Aatmabodh Academy of Yoga Ayurveda Naturopathy health scientific Centre is running its activities in the premises of THE BOMBAY CITY AMBULANCE CORPS. Both the organizations are working in the field of preservation and promotion of good health and educating the people to save life.
YOGA is one of the most important facets of the Indian Culture. It has a living tradition of more than five thousand years. As a philosophy no doubt, Yoga offers a transcendental vision of reality but more important is the fact, that as a practical discipline, it is the most precise way to realize that vision. Though yoga is meant essentially for our spiritual development, it also emphasizes the fact that this development is possible only when the body and mind are healthy. The literal meaning of the word ‘Yoga’ is integration. It represents a process through which one learns how to live life in the most integrated way. It is a way, through which one ultimately reaches a stage of spiritual fulfillment. This becomes possible through a process of constant effort for identification and elimination of all the elements, which would lead to dis-integration. The health of the body and mind being the most important component of this integrated state; identification of all the elements causing ill- health and techniques for neutralizing their ill effects become an important concern in Yoga. Thus, Yoga has developed a unique system comprising of numerous physical and mental practices. It makes the body and mind work at their highest level of efficiency and also helps in the removal of all those factors which would reduce this efficiency. One level as a science of personal growth for spiritual experience can also be viewed at another level as science of Health and Healing. Unfortunately over the last few centuries, the essentials of Yoga got lost or got distorted by the indifference, ignorance and also by the wild superstitions prevalent in the society. The credit goes to many visionary persons like Swami Vivekananda, Shri Aurobindo, and Swami Kuvalayananda for retrieving it and presenting it to the world with new vigor and perspective.
AYURVEDA is a sub Veda of Atharvaveda which means the science of life. It has a tradition to balance and create harmony between mind, body and spirit, by preventing or curing any diseases, or ailments thus promoting a long and healthy life. It is a complete Holistic Medical Science, which has its own way of understanding a living body. As rightly said, it is balance of the three humors or
trigunas, seven components and well kindled gastric fire that will keep one healthy not only physically but also mentally.
It describes the same in terms of Dosha (basic body energy), Dhatu (body tissue), and Mala (Excretory products). This science is based on the principles of five-element theory. For this purpose Ayurveda prescribes an excellent system of Panchakarma.
PANCHAKARMA: – means purification of our systems through biological or natural means that rejuvenates the human being as a whole. It strengthens the immune system and removes vitiated doshas out from the body. It is Swedan, Vaman, Virechan, Nasya and Raktamoksana.
NATUROPATHY is a system of curing diseases as well as prevention of diseases by using natural resources such as Water, Air, Mud, Clay, Sunlight, and Natural food and Manipulation (MASSAGE). Naturopathy recognizes that body possesses ability to resist disease and has an inherent mechanism of recovery and self- regulation. Naturopathy recognizes that personal health, environmental health and community health are part of a whole. Naturopathy teaches us the best way to achieve optimum health, to adapt right life style, developing self- esteem and a positive attitude towards life, eating fresh, wholesome natural food, drinking plenty of water, exercising regularly, taking plenty of rest and sleep, getting plenty of fresh air and sunshine, learning to handle stress and preventing all negative influences of life.
- Through Yoga one can bring equilibrium with body, breath, mind and soul.
- Through Ayurveda there is balancing of Doshas, Dhatu and Malakriya.
- Through Naturopathy healing, purifying and balancing the body fire through the Water, Air, Mud, Clay, Sunlight and Natural food.
- Yoga, Ayurveda-Panchakarma and are the best sources for maintaining Arogya. These three form the base of the Aatmabodh Academy.
