Ayurveda (Sanskrit: आयुर्वेद; Āyurveda, "the knowledge for long life in Vedas"; or ayurvedic medicine is a Hindu system of traditional medicine native to India and a form of alternative medicine. The earliest literature on Indian medical practice appeared during the Vedic period in India, in Rigved.

Some other known written text are Suśruta Saṃhitā and the Charaka Saṃhitā, encyclopedias of medicine compiled from various sources from the mid-first millennium BCE to about 500 CE, and are among the foundational and formally compiled works of Ayurveda.

Today's featured quote

To succeed, you must have tremendous perseverance, tremendous will. “I will drink the ocean”, says the persevering soul; “at my will mountains will crumble up”. Have that sort of energy, that sort of will; work hard, and you will reach the goal.
~ Swami Vivekananda ~
