THE TALK Nº4:
Ayurveda & Art of Happiness

MINI CHANDRAN

Part of ayurveda healing is not being afraid to express yourself. There is a thin line between being foolish and genial and we are afraid to cross it. We should have a good laugh or cry when we feel it, rather than trying to bottle it up and be an adult.

Ayurveda is a lifestyle. I don’t look at it as a treatment. It’s a treatment for the body through lifestyle. It includes all forms of medical treatments, yoga and many other practices. Whatever can positively influence our body, mind and soul, it is ayurveda.
