Ananda Ayurveda was born from witnessing the society around us growing in sickness of the mind and body for far too long. Friends and family were being mass-medicated and feeling completely lost in how to actually HEAL themselves from illness. The longer we lived in India, the more we saw the OPPOSITE there. So many people in our community were thriving - feeling healthy, youthful and so happy! What were they doing that Westerners weren't?!
After being immersed into traditional, Hindu culture and lifestyle, we began to put the dots together. Every dimension of the Vedic/Yogic way of life is purposeful and centered on conscious living! From the foods, to the hygiene, to the clothing, to the spiritual practices - all of it created harmony and health. Most importantly, we discovered there were SO many solutions to the problems humanity was suffering with... it just took us going to India to learn about them.
While living in Bhagavan Sri Nithyananda Paramashivam's ashram, we were blessed to be part of the Yoga department. For years, we were intensely trained and studied in authentic Yoga directly under an Enlightened Avatar! We fell in love with Yoga from its true source: Shiva and His lineage. We lived the Yogic lifestyle every day, studied and compiled Yogic scriptures, and taught teacher trainings and classes. But most importantly, we witnessed firsthand the validity of the Yogic science in healing and uplifting the Consciousness of thousands.
Many refer to Ayurveda as the sister science of Yoga, and this couldn't be more true. We saw Ayurveda being used in the ashram as the norm for healing disease and preventing ill health. After 3 years, we were fully convinced in the power of Yoga and Ayurveda to heal the world. We truly feel without a shadow of a doubt, these sciences hold the answers humans are crying out for.
The only purpose we have in this lifetime is the same as our Guru's mission: to raise the Consciousness of as many people as possible. We are here to humbly share the life-changing, ancient wisdom of our Guru and the great Sages of Sanatana Dharma. We are here to give back what we have been given: Ultimate health of body, mind, and spirit.
It's not just a want, it's a necessity that Ayurveda spreads worldwide. We cannot continue to live in disharmony with ourselves and the world. Our only desire is that Ananda Ayurveda helps to make these holistic, natural medicines and lifestyle available and accessible for new communities globally.
We are so grateful to each and every one of you who has been a part of our path.. past, present or future. May the Eternal Grace of Paramashiva be with you always, in all ways. Your life is meant to be lived powerfully, healthily, and blissfully!
Ma Nithya Prasiddhananda
Deepest gratitude to our Guru, Bhagavan Sri Nithyananda Paramashivam for lighting our path and awakening our Consciousness. You are the inspiration behind all that we do.
