This very complete 3-volume work teaches a systematic method for identifying the causes of illness and the states of disease manifestation. Etiology and pathogenesis is the key to understanding how disease can be prevented through awareness of the subtle energetic disturbances that precede structural or functional damage. Drawing from a rich storehouse of theory and clinical experience, Lad presents principles and methods of assessment which provide a foundation of practical knowledge that can combine with an ongoing awareness of relationship of the world and the divine. This perspective will reveal the seeds of mental, emotional, and physical suffering that can be addressed before they manifest as disease.
This book brings forth the practices of Ayurveda from the ancient texts and presents them in a systematic organization that is readily accessible to a Western audience. Dr. Lad provides comprehensive information on therapeutic modalities including diet and lifestyle recommendations, palliative and cleansing therapies, subtle healing methods including individual rejuvenation protocols, yoga and pranayma practices and herbal substances as well as management techniques according to dosha, shatu, srotamist and the subtle essences. Each section clearly explains the principles of the healing techniques, often with the steps outlined for the reader, in addition to the herbal substances and their practical application. It is an essential reference for the Ayurvedic practitioner.
In his Ayurvedic Studies Program, Vasant Lad, Ayurvedic Physician, teaches Ayurveda as a science of moment-to-moment living. Each lecture that he gives flows from his own heart in a river of healing wisdom that is inspired by and pertinent to the students who are present at the time of the lecture.
This textbook is a presentation of Dr. Lad's years of teaching in that classroom setting. It conveys the philosophical and fundamental principles of his first year Ayurvedic Studies Program at the Ayurvedic Institute in a dynamic and inspirational way. This book will give the student a detailed foundation upon which to pursue deeper knowledge, including that of the future volumes in this series.
