These are two quite good articles on Ayurveda that put it in its true perspective. http://www.inplainsite.org/html/ayurveda.htmlhttp://www.ayurvediccure.com/ayurveda_ayurvedic_herbs/ayurveda_history.htm
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi the founder of TM and the spiritual guru of the Beatles is a key player in making this from of healing popular and being brought to the public.
Deepak Chopra a leading occultist uses this in his practice and his one of its primary promoters. It is not based on typical understandings of science. It is based on the power of the “Divine Within” and “Self-Realization” “God Within” “I am God” to cure the illnesses.
Ayurveda is also known as the “Mother of Healings”.
It also said to be coming form Ancient wisdom in which part of a spiritual tradition of a “Universal Religion” before it was written down in texts.
“The knowledge of Ayurveda is believed to be of Divine origin and was communicated to the saints and sages of India who received its wisdom through deep meditation.”
The occult teaches that there has always been a “Universal Religion” or “Ancient Wisdom” (the Occult) since the beginning of time that the information is acquired via meditation and through initiations from Master to Pupil with secret oaths. This is not wisdom from Father but is said by occultist to be the wisdom of the “Masters of Wisdom” which they say includes Lucifer as the God of this planet. These Ascended Masters are the great teachers of man. They are also called angels and they say they fell to earth to help mankind evolve. We know them better as demons.
Deepak Chopra teaches all the occult doctrines and is close friends with the rest of the leading occultists of today.
If you want more information on Deepak Chopra and the other occultist beliefs I have written quite a bit on my blog about him and one of his many movements called I take the vow. “The Spiritual Conspiracy and I Take the Vow” If you read that full article it will put in perspective their ultimate goals for a one world order and religion. Including their admitting that Lucifer is the one to give the final initiation into the new age.
I would stay far away from Ayurveda due to all of its history and the fact that the occult is promots it heavily. From what I have seen it does merely contain occult ideas, but is occult at its core.
Please read the websites given and my blog if you are considering participating in this “Ancient” religious practice.
