Dr. Vasant Lad, an amazing man who has dedicated his career and spiritual practice steeped in the ancient practice of Ayurvedic Medicine, is most deserving of a documentary of his life titled The Doctor from India. If you were one of the fortunate ones to see the movie I helped bring to Milwaukee in June 2018, or saw it in your home town, I imagine you were as touched by his story as I.
Back in 2013, I had my first opportunity to meet and study with Dr. Lad and the movie captured his passion and presence. To sit at his feet and listen to him speak about Ayurveda can bring you to tears of joy, as he touches your heart and soul.
A few quotes from the movie were so powerful to me, I had to write them down.
The one basic profound knowledge is your own I AM, this is ayurveda.
Modern science is the moonshine, but sunshine is ayurveda.
In your consciousness, there is a history of the whole world. Therefore you are the world and the world is you. If you realize yourself what you are, you will realize the whole world.
In the true sense, Ayurveda is a way of life, living in harmony with the nature.
