Ayurveda is the Veda or knowledge of Ayus or life. It has been classified as the Fifth Veda.
Ayurveda is a distinct Veda. It is even superior to the other Vedas because it gives life which is the basis of all enjoyments, study, meditation and Yoga Sadhana.
Ayurveda is the science of life. It shows the way to remove diseases, to keep up sound health and attain longevity.
Ayurveda was in vogue in India since very early times. The Ayurvedic and Siddha systems have played a very important and vital part in the sphere of public health. Their popularity is due to their availability, cheapness and efficacy.
