The mission of the Sri Sri Ayurveda Institute for Education and Wellness (“Sri Sri Ayurveda Institute”) is to inspire, empower and support the overall wellbeing of people and the planet through the wisdom of the Vedas, as taught by the world-renowned humanitarian and spiritual teacher Sri Sri Ravi Shankar.
Ayurveda is the Mother of all natural health care systems, drawing upon 5,000 years of observation of human existence. Ayurveda is a Sanskrit term which means the knowledge (Veda) of life (Ayur). Even a basic understanding of this profound system of health gives the ability to detect imbalances at a subtle level greatly reducing the chance of developing disease. This comprehensive preventive system, which is recognized by the World Health Organization, is currently benefiting a third of the world’s population.
