Āyurveda is to the body, as Yoga is to the mind; they are inseparable sisters.

Āyurveda is the science of life. Its aim is to create balance between the body and mind. As a system of medicine, Āyurveda offers many techniques to heal our body’s ailments. Central to this traditional practice is the powerful role food plays in keeping our body healthy and creating the physical conditions necessary to support Realization and Liberation.

Traditional Indian cooking evolved out of the science of Āyurveda. The recipes offered here are examples of what Āyurveda considers sattvic — recipes that balance the system and help our mind remain calm and quiet. The greatness of these recipes is that they are not only sattvic, they are also delicious!
