Ayurveda describes four types of life: hita-ayu, ahita-ayu, sukha-ayu and dukha-ayu: Hita-ayu is life that is led for doing good to yourself and others. Ahita-ayu refer to actions which are not for the good of yourself or another person. Sukha-ayu refers to those healthful and blissful actions that you do for the good of your physiology, while dukha-ayu is leading a life that harms the physiology. Ayurveda encourages and prescribes choosing to lead the hita-ayu and sukha-ayu life, and one’s days be filled with bounty in every way.
I completely agree philosophy and prescription of Ayurveda, even trying in my personal life, which is living fulfill life with good intentions, nutrition, yoga, self heal, conscious living, care and compassion towards others, animals, nature, loving heart and positive mind.
Ayurveda teaches us to live life in balance. And it helps us to find exactly what that balance is for each one of us. We learn individual strategies for diet, exercise, and lifestyle. Since health is more than the physical, it is also mental, emotional, and spiritual, Ayurveda can be used to help us create and maintain healthy relationships. It can help us to better understand ourselves, and the people in our lives. We can work with our natural strengths to help balance each other out. We can stop trying to "change" others to fit our needs, and instead accept a person's characteristics as a part of their wholeness, and honor who they are.
Ayurvedic principles can be applied to our work and career, to help us find and live our dharma, or purpose in life. They can help us with our family lives, in parenting, and to help resolve conflicts. Ayurveda is a lifestyle that shows us how to take care of ourselves, in a simple, practical, and loving way.
Ayurveda is a holistic approach to balancing body, mind and spirit. Diseases happen outside our control.
Miseries caused by other entititues Adibhautika , seasonal vagaries and natural disasters Adhidaivika.
The goal of Ancient Rishis (RSis) was human happiness and deliverance from misery. Whether it was Vedas, Yoga, Bhoga, Philosophy, or Ayurveda or anything else.
The Adibhautika group is the category of karma that can arise from enemies, animals attack such as tiger, lion, serpent, etc. Adibhautika means miseries caused by other living beings such as germs, bacterias, viruses, or accidents, poisonous gases.
Sometimes our friends betray us, sometimes people are competitive against us, sometimes people
will insult us, blaspheme us, try to destroy us, or just neglect us. Very difficult.
Adidaivika is the class of karma that can arise from the asuras etc. Then, there is a miseries caused by natural disturbances, too much heat, too much cold, high winds, earthquakes, Tsunamis, tidal waves, wild fires, so suffering is inevitable.
Also believed that lack of spiritual conscious mind would cause Adhidaivika miseries, which are those that arise due to the imbalances created by man, that incur the wrath of the Gods, the different planets and so on, which result in various types of inconveniences and difficulties for humans.
Adhibhautika misery is the misery that arises from the five great elements like Earth, Water, Fire, Ether and Air.
Certain type of disasters can be avoided by the governments of those countries. Japan have been building earthquake resistance buildings for years now, besides tsunami hits the country, high scale earthquake in most cases don’t damage people’s lives. However certain disasters cannot be avoided, thousands of lives lost because of these type of disasters. Helping humanity, helping financially, physically, monetarily is our responsibilities to create better karma.
Also in the ancient civilizations they would pray to Gods for natural happenings. Humanity has changed to become more self conscious in material and high tech ways. Communications, consciousness focused on self then self realization and happenings.
Ayurveda is the systematic knowledge of life. Treatments of diseases for external sources also need to be treated, since these external affects cause uncontrollable imbalances in doshas. Ayurveda recognizes ones life as a whole and to understand the disturbance is essential to treating their effects.
