Mystic Mantra: Live Like the Gods

Mystic Mantra: Live Like the Gods

“If ayurveda becomes a living reality in our lives and our societies, people can live like gods.” —Sadhguru

The word “ayurveda” is formed by the combination of two words — ayur meaning life span, and veda meaning the scripture about how to keep your full stretch of life span. Ayurveda comes from a completely different dimension of life and a completely different understanding of what life is.

In the ayurvedic system, the fundamental understanding is that this body, the way it is today, is an accumulation that we gathered from the planet. Whatever the nature of the planet, whatever the nature of the five elements which make the planet, all are very much manifest in this physical body. Fundamentally, this whole body is just a play of five elements. Whether it is the individual human body or the larger cosmic body, essentially they are made up of the pancha bhutas or the five elements — earth, water, fire, air and space. What you call as “myself” is just a mischief of these five elements.
