What is Ayurveda

AyurVeda means “the science of life” and comes from the ancient Vedic tradition of India, where it has been practised for more than 5,000 years. Centuries of neglect led to a decline in AyurVeda until 1980, when Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of the Transcendental Meditation Programme, gathered the foremost exponents of AyurVeda to enliven this age-old knowledge in its completeness and original purity.

Maharishi AyurVeda is the world’s most ancient and complete science of natural medicine. It provides a wealth of knowledge and time tested therapies to promote health and well-being in both mind and body. Maharishi AyurVeda is complete AyurVeda, in accordance with the ancient texts.


Maharishi Mahesh Yogi is widely regarded as the foremost expert in the study and development of consciousness. He rediscovered and made available the technique of Transcendental Meditation and its advanced programs. The Transcendental Meditation technique is a simple, natural, effortless process practiced 15–20 minutes twice daily while sitting comfortably with eyes closed. Through the practice of these techniques, millions of people have experienced improvements in health, vitality, creativity and happiness. Maharishi also placed great attention on the introduction and use of Vedic technologies for peace and prosperity in the world.
