Book Review: Transcendental Meditation with Questions and Answers

By |2017-09-05T13:50:33+01:00March 27th, 2014|Books, Maharishi Ayurveda Blogs, Mind|

“I came out of the Himalayas with a method designed to raise both the head and the heart of man to the point where knowledge and appreciation of the quality of his higher nature can be attained. I call my method Transcendental Meditation, but it is, in fact, a technique of self-exploration; it enables a man to dive into the innermost reaches of his being, in which dwells the essence [...]

By |2017-09-05T13:50:33+01:00March 27th, 2014|Books, Maharishi Ayurveda Blogs|

This - let me say at the outset - is an absolutely delightful, profound, insightful and extremely well-written book which will appeal to anyone practising Transcendental Meditation and anyone attending the Yoga classes so much in vogue nowadays. To many in the west, Yoga is just an ancient form of exercise, practised for its health benefits. Even as such it is one of the fastest growing health trends in the [...]

WARNING: Avoid ‘Monsanto Butter’

By |2018-01-23T17:32:13+00:00March 24th, 2014|Heart, Maharishi Ayurveda Blogs, Oils|

After years of being vilified, butter is experiencing a revival in recent years as consumers have shifted their preferences from processed foods back to natural foods. For decades we were sold the myth that butter clogs our arteries and causes heart disease. Now many people have realised that the main culprit, in the modern epidemic of circulatory and heart problems, is not butter, or other dairy products, but the [...]

Fruity Mung Dal

By |2017-09-05T13:50:33+01:00March 23rd, 2014|Maharishi Ayurveda Blogs, Recipes|

Mung dal is considered to be the best of all dals by Ayurveda and is said to balance all three Doshas. It is also nutritious and easy to digest. Mung beans are small and green, and can be found in any health food shop and many supermarkets. Mung beans are fine to use in the following recipe, though, because of their skins, they are not as balancing as mung dal. [...]

Calm and warm yourself with some Vata Chai

By |2017-09-05T13:50:33+01:00March 14th, 2014|Autumn, Maharishi Ayurveda Blogs, Recipes, Winter|

Chai is a warm and soothing beverage, usually made with spices, herbs and milk. In Ayurveda chai is considered a rasayana, a beverage or herbal concoction that strengthens the whole physiology. In present day India chai is made using black tea, which is a useful stimulant if you have a sluggish physiology.  Yet, if your Vata has been put out of balance by cold weather,  the caffeine contained in black tea [...]

He introduced me to Ayurveda and to Panchakarma as well. Peter: After you first heard about this treatment, how long [...]

Drink some Chai to open up your Shrotas

By |2017-09-05T13:50:33+01:00March 3rd, 2014|Detox, Digestion, Maharishi Ayurveda Blogs, Recipes|

Our body is full of spaces according to Ayurveda. These spaces, called Shrotas, are the channels through which nourishment and energy are delivered to our cells and though which toxic waste is eliminated. During the winter the cold makes our Shrotas shrink and this can lead to poor absorption of nutrients and poor elimination of poisonous toxins. This is a good time to help keep your body channels as open [...]
