Basis for Ayurvedic Philosophy
Ayurveda is applicable to every living thing, as implied by its name, the science of life. Vedicsciences attribute life to more things than we normally do - the things such as air, wind, fire, theearth, planets, stars, etc. are all thought to possess conscience like living beings.The basic premise of Ayurveda is that the entire cosmos or universe is part of one singular absolute. Everything that exists in the vast external universe (macrocosm), also appears in theinternal cosmos of the human body (microcosm). The human body consisting of 50-100 millioncells, when healthy, is in harmony, self-perpetuating and self-correcting just as the universe is.
