Ayurveda för ditt sinne
(Ayurveda for your mind)
Albert Bonnier, Sweden, 2011
Ayurveda for your mind is a different self-help book based on thousands of years of Indian medicine and the life philosophy of Ayurveda.
Janesh Vaidya is an internationally renowned ayurveda practitioner from India who over the years met and treated thousands of stressed and unsatisfied people - from workers to politicians and spiritual leaders. The medicine for their missing joy in life is what he calls "mind anatomy" - or the anatomy of the mind. Join him on a spiritual and lifelong journey!
Ayurveda for your mind consists of three main sections. The first part describes the connection between body and mind, and the origin and transformation of the soul during life. In the second part, you will know what diet and lifestyle that suits you based on your dominant element. The third part is about how you can use the energy levels in your body to improve your mental and physical health. Here are also examples of meditation exercises of different degrees of difficulty that you can perform at home.
Through Janesh Vaidya's simple but effective exercises, we learn to work with our chakras and thereby control our thoughts - to get distance instead of getting caught in negative patterns. The specially designed exercises help us to develop our inner powers and to manage our social relations. They act as a vaccine against stress and external pressure. They attract genuine joy and life energy. And best of all - they can be done on their own, at home or away.
