Ayurveda teaches that in almost every instance the root cause for physical afflictions can be found in the mind. Although Bhuta Vidya, which is one of the eight “limbs” or branches of classical Ayurveda, is usually translated into English as “psychology,” it is in a more literal sense “the study of the past.” This seminar will explore how the past affects us now and, via the choices we make in the present, how it directs our futures, with special emphasis on ahamkara, the power of self-identification and individualization.
Dr. Robert Svoboda is the first Westerner ever to graduate from a college of Ayurveda and be licensed to practice Ayurveda in India. During and after his formal Ayurvedic training he was tutored in Ayurveda, Yoga, Jyotish, Tantra and other forms of classical Indian lore by his mentor, the Aghori Vimalananda. The author of more than a dozen books, he lived in India for more than a decade, after which he has continued to spend much of each year there and in other countries.
