I'm beginning my spring cleanse, a yearly ritual under the guidance of my ayurvedic teacher Kate O'Donnell. This afternoon she sent this little gem to my inbox; The Ayurvedic definition of health:
One who is established in Self, who has balanced doshas, properly formed tissues, proper elimination of waste, well functioning bodily processes, and whose mind, soul, and senses are full of bliss, is called a healthy person.
- Sushruta Samhita, translated by Dr Vasant Lad.
I'll be sharing recipes and other thoughts from my ayurvedic spring cleanse as the days pass. Come back and visit.
