Ayurvedic & Tantric Healing

AYURVEDA - Ayurvedic Healing

The term Ayurveda comes from the Sanskrit terms "Ayu" meaning "life" and "Veda" meaning "knowledge". The literal translation of "Ayurveda" is "knowledge of life" or "right living". This Ayurveda knowledge is grounded in the Vedic scriptures, which date back to 3000 B.C, if not earlier.

The Ayurveda or Hindu system of medicine offers many ayurvedic herbal and other natural remedies and a holistic view on health in daily life, as well as many specialized ayurvedic therapies and cures. The Ayurveda studies the physical and psychic behaviour of people and prescribes ways for them to synchronize with their environment so as to live happy, healthy and inspired lives. Much emphasis in Ayurveda is given to diet, following the cycles of the seasons, massage and other useful practices for enriching life.

Some of the main systems of understanding in Ayurveda include the gunas (rajas, sattva, tamas), the doshas (vata, pitta, kapha), agni, tejas and of course prana.

TANTRA - Tantric Healing

Tantric healing is a holistic healing approach that draws on all the sciences - astronomy, astrology, numerology, physiognomy, physics, chemistry, alchemy, Ayurveda, psychology, mathematics, geometry, and so on.

The motivating force behind the eternal play of the illusory world of phenomena is the power of desire (ichcha-shakti). This desire is present in the one who is without attributes, the nameless and formless aspect of the divine (Brahman). Tantra accepts desire as the prime motivating force of the universe and much of the work of Tantra is to work with and not against desire. By means of physical and ritual cleaning, breathing, visualization, repetition of a mantra, etc.. Tantra helps to unfold our divine nature and bring healing to body and soul.

In this way, Tantra is truly magical, mystical and the shamanic tradition of Asia. Some of its treatments and rituals may be wonderfully strange, but so are its results. Especially in case of chronic diseases that allophatic, homeopathic or ayurvedic doctors have not be able to cure, tantric healing often provides the solution. Tantra is often hard to understand, but to the one who gets a tantric healing this is not very important.
