THE FOUNDER – MAHARISHI MAHESH YOGI
At the end of the 1970s, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who brought the Transcendental Meditation programme to the world, started working closely with leading Ayurvedic physicians and scholars to systematize and restore the age-old knowledge of Ayurveda to its complete value. It is this total approach to natural health care that has been given the name Maharishi AyurVeda. This brand assures authenticity, completeness and highest quality.
In addition, Maharishi has completely restored the thousands of years-old scattered Vedic Literature into a complete science, bringing to light its full potential. Through his revival of Vedic science with its various disciplines such as Ayurveda, Sthapatya Veda, Ghandarva Veda, Jyotish etc., he has made a unique and practical contribution to the holistic improvement of many areas of our civilization.
Only a holistic approach that takes into consideration all aspects of mind and body together, can be successful in handling health.
Health is not just the absence of disease, but life in balance, life in wholeness – life in complete happiness, success, and fulfilment. Everyone should live this state of health all the time.
Ayurveda is the worlds oldest and most comprehensive scientific system of natural health care, originating in the ancient Vedic tradition of India. Formally recognized by the World Health Organization, it emphasizes prevention of disease as well as promotion of health and longevity.
In contrast with contemporary medicine, Maharishi AyurVeda is holistic, prevention-oriented, free from harmful side effects, and capable of treating disease at its source rather than at the superficial level of symptoms. This makes Maharishi AyurVeda both cost-effective and practical. Extensive research and experience have confirmed the age-old authenticity of Maharishi AyurVeda and proven its effectiveness.
