Why Sanskrit? Its importance for Ayurveda practitioners.
Why is Sanskrit important for a student of Ayurveda? Our Ayurvedic texts were written in Sanskrit using the Devanagri script and in rhyme, poetic form using certain metres. For example, Astanga hrdyam verses can be sung in anustupa metre. In India, people call it the dead language. Sanskrit is far from dead. It is essential to invoke higher power, angels (devatas), and has a practical aspect. I talk about the importance of Sanskrit and have mixed in some older invocation mantra podcast audio here as well.

I have coined a new word. Dravyology. What is Dravyology-It is the study of Ayurvedic Herbs, therapeutic minerals and substances. In Ayurveda, our herbs and therapeutic herbal medicines are called Dravya. Ayurveda uses minerals, rocks, resins, plants, animal products like ghee and honey etc in its herbs. It also uses energy like the energy of sun or moon, energy of the wind to empower herbs. Lets understand Dravyology and difference between Ayurvedic and Western herbalist.
There is so much information about Ayurveda on the Internet, not all of it is authentic. Where does it come from? From ancient books. Today, we will talk about one of these ancient texts and sing some verses from it. Ayurvedic Practitioners learn to sing verses from Ashtanga Hrdyam in order to memorize the concepts. Lets hear the story and the foundation principles of Ayurveda as mentioned in Asthanga Hrdyam along with English translation. We are singing it in the same style as Vishnu Sahasranamam.
