Most philosophies begin with a story. Ours predates to the 5th century BC, the time of the Buddha when all ancient Indian wisdom thrived. This period of intellectual wealth flourished for hundreds of years. Then as predicted by the Buddha himself, it's prosperity started to decline. Until one day, a foreign invader, who entered India, orchestrated the destruction of a monumental library building, which was a store house of all literature connected with Indian wisdom.

Unfortunately, these actions were favored by some of our own misguided people as they weren't receptive to the philosophy of Buddha's teachings that shed light on the futility of rights and rituals. 

          This magnificent library would later be subjected to multiple attacks over the course of history while the local rulers/kings at the time did their best to restore it to its glory and save the knowledge source is homed. Regrettably, the final blow to its legacy was delivered in the form of a Turkish invader who burnt the library building and kept it burning for 6 months. This devastating event took with it many sources of ancient literature some of which included texts of wisdom on Buddhism and Ayurveda. Ayurveda had lost its surgery forever.

            Fortunately, the essence of Buddha’s teaching - namely Tripitaka, had already been sent out to neighboring countries like Burma, China, Japan, Indonesia, Thailand, etc. by the great emperor Ashoka. 

        Buddha had given utmost importance to the inner journey like the purification of one's mind rather than performing rights and rituals for salvation. Buddha explained that "You have come to this planet to purify your mind. Once the mind is pure, you will have noble intention in life - because only a pure mind can have noble intention.

       After having the noble intention, you should put selfless effort to fulfill your intentions. That’s it. Whatever happens after this is for your own good." In Chaturarya Sathya(the four noble truths) Buddha explains the importance of Panchasheela - the moral code of conduct, which is the foundation of the spiritual journey, and Ashtanga Marga - the noble eight fold path(comprising of SheelaSamadhi & Prajna) only through which one can attain Nibbana - the enlightenment. This is the end of suffering and should be one's ultimate goal in life. This is the essence of Buddha’s teachings.

         As the Buddha explains, there is not a single plant on this planet which does not have any medicinal value - plants exist to protect animals. Protection of nature is necessary for the very survival of our civilization.

       Now, the time has come for the revival of our glorious past - this has been predicted by the Buddha himself. In the year 1947, we obtained freedom from foreign rulers. Our national flag embedded the Ashoka Chakra in it, which depicts the twenty-four conditions of the mind as explained by the Buddha. Our National emblem shows the four lions which symbolize the spread of the four noble truths(Dhamma) explained by the Buddha, across all four directions.        The coming 440 years belongs to our Jambu Dweepa (Bharatha Khanda or India), and the Buddha's teaching will be accepted universally.

This necessitates Muniyal Ayurveda to come out with our holistic projects with the intention of having a global impact. Thus, Buddhaayurved is the historical need of the hour to spread Buddha's teachings across the world for the welfare of humanity.
