This is an EXCELLENT book. Abstract and very deep truths are lucidly conveyed without sacrificing intricacy or impact. If you are interested in psychology, spirituality, or Ayurveda, this is a wonderful, unique book. Dr. Frawley is extremely thorough and brings much integrity to his work. This book may be a bit much for some, but those truly interested in furthering their awareness will find many treasures in these pages. If you are looking for an intro to Ayurveda, start with something else, like Dr. Frawley's "Yoga and Ayurveda." --ayurvedic psychology
I used to think Auryveda was all about herbs and bad-tasting concoctions ...not so! In this book David presents the Auryvedic veiw of man. It encompasses not just the physical body (sharir, in Sanskrit), but also the outer "sense-oriented" mind (manas) and inner "feeling-oriented" mind (chitta). Just as the physical body's well-being is determined by a regimen of diet and exercise, so too, is the well-being of one's outer and inner mind determined by diet and exercise. The only difference is that "diet" and "exercise" for the mind isn't, say, food and aerobics, but something a lot more subtle. One can go through life ignoring all of life's profund questions. But, one cannot live life ignoring one's body and mind. This book helps contend with those "devils" :-). There's something for everyone. --ByA customer
This is an excellent compliment to traditional Western Psychology. I've struggled with bouts of depression for years. While there is definately a place for anti-depressants, I found they had sever limits in my case. I found this book extremely helpful. Frawley's Ayurveda model seems to offer tailored treatment for the individual. It includes simple lifestyle changes while the Western model seems to push mass produced meds for mass treatment. --Ayurveda and the Mind:
