Last month over 1,220,000 people searched Google looking for information on yoga. Yet Ayurveda, yoga's sister science, prompted a mere 33,000 searches. It seems we are slow to catch on in the West, while yoga has steadily grown in popularity her sister science, Ayurveda, remains largely undiscovered.
This is a great shame since Ayurveda holds healing secrets that every parent, partner and friend really should know. It teaches us how to develop awareness of how our diet, lifestyle and relationships affect our health, how to cultivate a calm peaceful mind, and how to be healthy and happy so that we can invest our attention in developing our spiritual awareness rather than just running around feeling stressed out and tired and worrying about how we are going to pay the next bill.
