Ayurveda in Sri Lanka

The Ancient Ways of the Sri Lankan Culture!

What can be said about the Sri Lankan Culture that is not already bound to impress the ways of the outsiders. Well when we say “Outsiders”, we do not actually mean outsider, but you can catch my drift.

Ayurveda is known to be an “Ancient System” of medicine in this part of the world, and it is also worthy to note that the name “Ayurveda” comes from two conjoined Sanskrit Words “Ayuh (life)” and “Veda (Science or Knowledge)”. Forget about the ancient times, even in this modern day where technology has taken hold of the social world, humans are still trying to achieve optimum state of health by any means necessary, for that, anyone can easily say “Sri Lanka Is the Place to Be”.

 

The Vital Forces of Ayurveda

There are definitely more than a several beliefs that “Ayurveda” would follow, but the main belief that would amount to greatness would be that of “Tri Dosha” or more commonly known as the three vital forces – Vayu, Pita, and Kapha.

Vayu – is known for the transmission of energy within the body itself, and when speaking in terms of Grey’s Anatomy, it would be Nerve Impulses, Muscle Contractions and Hormonal Activity.

Pita – it is in-line with bile, but it cannot be confined to it, as it would signify the whole idea of metabolism and the heat creation that would occur inside a human being.

Kapha – would simply mean “Mucus” best described as “The Protective Fluid”, but to get a better idea about this, watching a movie such as The Species or Alien would definitely do the trick.
