Inner Beauty

Ever wondered what is the difference between health and wellness?  I did wonder myself and so Googled it.  Here is what I found:

Health and wellness are not synonyms. Health refers simply to a physical body being free from diseases, but wellness is an overall balance of your physical, social, spiritual, emotional, intellectual, environmental and occupational well-being.

Inner Beauty- Discover natural beauty and well being with the traditions of Ayurveda

This book written by Reenita Malhotra Hora and beautifully photographed by France Ruffenach has an evocative and powerful Foreword by William Stewart M.D Medical Director, Institute for Health and Healing, San Francisco, California

Ayurveda is a five-thousand-year old medicine that has much to offer anyone in search of a healthy lifestyle today.  The Sanskrit word Ayurveda has two roots: ayur, meaning life, and veda, meaning knowledge.  The systematic collection of health and healing knowledge encompassing all aspects of life and daily living has led the practice of Ayurveda to be called  the “science of life”.

A comprehensive approach, Ayurveda includes concepts of creation and energy, precepts of the moral and ethical life, and recommended practices relating to nutrition, physical activity, rest, relaxation and spiritual practice.  It is truly a timeless wisdom practice based on centuries of careful observation and interpretation.

In Inner Beauty, Reenita Malhotra Hora gives us a guide to the practice of Ayurveda that yokes ancient wisdom- both knowledge and practices-with contemporary reality.  She understands the challenges of modern life and provides facts and routines that are understandable, accessible and doable.  She teaches that true well-being and beauty originates within- they cannot be achieved through anything that covers or masks who we truly are.  When we we feel good, we look good.  Feeling good requires a commitment to what we take in (in the form of food and drink, sounds, sights), what we feel(in the form of emotions and sensations), and how we relate to everything around us.  Ayurveda is about balance, relatedness, lifelong learning and daily practice.

Inner Beauty, with its time-tested approaches, practical recommendations and straightforward language is an invaluable book for all those open to taking responsibility for their own well-being
