Summary: Dr. Lad presents in this seminal textbook the philosophical and fundamental principles of Ayurveda. The unique aim of the text is to provide easy, direct access to the ancient Vedic texts upon which Ayurveda is based - Charaka, Sushruta, and Vagbhata. Reflective of his dynamic and inspirational teaching style, Dr. Lad illuminates in his writing the essence of Ayurveda - a science of moment-to-moment living with awareness. The text especially captures the beauty of Dr. Lad's lectures,
which flow from his heart in a river of healing wisdom. An initial orientation to the six foundational Ayurvedic philosophies opens the text. A succinct, clear description of doshic theory and subtypes segues to indepth treatment of digestion, the primary source of life. The core of the text surveys the nature, function, and byproducts of the seven major bodily tissues. Central Ayurvedic concepts, such as karma, chakras, and koshsas are also addressed, along with the subtle energetics of the doshas - ojas, tejas, and prana. The popular issue of nutrition is elaborated extensively from an Ayurvedic perspective, including the energetics, actions, and digestive processes of food. The comprehensive scope of this volume makes it an essential point of departure for pursuing deeper Ayurvedic knowledge.
