The sages of our country accepted Sharira, the body, as the primary means to accomplish Dhrama. It is believed that simultaneously with the manifestation of the Universe, Ayurveda also came into existence in order to maintain the body in healthy state. It is the first and the oldest science for protection of health and also the mother of all other existing systems of treatment in this world. Maharishi Charak has described Ayurveda as an eternal science. It is the only science which has the credit of protecting the health of our countrymen during the past several thousand years. Ayurveda is also an integral part of the Indian culture. Even today about 75% of the population of our country is being benefited by this system.
