Human being generally think in the Horizental Direction---HD . The limitation of this type of thinking is that mind can go only up to limited awareness, because HD is limited in Space and Time. One has to discover the idea of Verticle Growth--VG, in order to go beyond mere worldley way, in order to achieve real- goal of life. The primary need is the inner eagerness to search the hightest state of conciousness, which is far beyond the odinary intellectual awarness to which I call---HD..So, it is a HD vis-a-vis VG quiz.
When we talk of Ayurveda, it is a subject not only of human physical-mental health but it encourage human being to go beyond body-mind, up to Vivek, a Sanskrit term for beyond- intellect. Therefore, one has to develop his/ her mind to the highest level of Vivek, Ayurveda really means----Science of Life. It is the science of Life which helped people like Mahatma Gandhi to rise to VG from HD. That is the point when I co-relate Gandhi and Ayurveda.
Now Yoga and Sankhya are the two terms on which entire Science of Ayurveda has been derived, Yoga verbally means to add and Sankhya means Science of mathemetics.Here we have to add body plus mind plus soul in order to reach Veveka, the highest level of mental state.
At this point I will stop till you are able to grasp what I have tried to explain....
