Ayurveda is an ancient Indian medicinal practice comprising a range of treatments including herbs, dietary changes, meditation, massage and yoga, to maintain or restore health.
The word Ayurveda comes from Sanskrit and means "science (or knowledge) of life." It is possibly the oldest system of health care continuously practiced in the world, (the tradition has been passed down from master to disciple in India for more than 5000 years).
Ayurveda is based on the belief that health is the result of harmony between mind, body and spirit. Practitioners of Ayurveda in India receive training recognized worldwide. While modern medical science has never validated the principles of Ayurvedic medicine and only a few rigorous studies can certify their effect on specific diseases, it is believed that certain practices like yoga, increase strength and vitality. In addition, currently being studied are many Ayurvedic herbal preparations, based upon their apparent therapeutic effects.
Ayurveda, the "science of life", is the traditional medicine, and natural healing system of India and its cultural sphere. This is probably the oldest healing system in the world. Its roots come from the Vedic era, more than 5,000 years ago. No wonder it has been called "The Mother of All Cures". Ayurveda is one of the most comprehensive healing systems in the world, working completeley with the body, mind and spirit. It is related to a deep yogic vision of life and consciousness. There are indications that much of Ayurvedic practice has lead to the basis of modern western medicine.

In Buddhism and Hinduism Karma is the law governing the successive reincarnations of a person, determining the events and circumstances that affect their lives according to the actions performed in previous existences because of karma a person who has been nasty or otherwise can suffer greatly in the next.
Karma evolution involves learning through experience. In order to learn from mistakes and grow our Creator has given us free will. Here on Earth, free will is used for both good and bad, and its subsequent consequences are learned. Consequences here are in the extreme and under some extremely difficult conditions
At higher levels of being is possible to see in a moment the likely outcomes of various alternative choices or routes our decisions will take us.
Our job is to simply make the right decision. Unfortunately our evolutionary journey is clouded by "Veil of Forgetfulness", so if we make a mess of this life we will forget and have to relearn these lessons again in the future.
Here on Earth, we must learn through the arduous process of physical experience, we make decisions, weigh the perceived benefits for ourselves and for others, and then experience the consequences of our decisions.
This is the rough hand of cosmic justice, until one day we find an overwhelming yearning to return home, to leave and never return. At this point we begin our true spiritual journey and seek answers to prevent our sleepwalking through life.
