best ever i came across.

The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways, but narrower viewpoints..

 We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less.

 We have bigger houses and smaller families,
more conveniences, but less time.

 We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.

We've learned how to make a living, but not a life.

We've added years to life not life to years.

We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor.

We conquered outer space but not inner space. We've done larger things, but not better things.

We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul.

We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice.

We write more, but learn less.

We plan more, but accomplish less.

We've learned to rush, but not to wait.
These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes.

These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill.

It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you.

The true history of Ayurveda starts from the time of  the Vedas around 5000 years back. They preach the philosophy of life. The Athrv ved contains the principles of healing on which Ayurved is based. 'Ayur' means 'life' in Sanskrit. Ayurved is the most ancient science of healing which enhances longevity. It has influenced many of the older traditional methods of healing including Tibetan, Chinese and Greek medicine. Hence, Ayurveda is considered by many as the 'mother of healing
According to the Hindu mythology, the rhapsody of the Universe is maintained by Trimurtis  Brahma  the Creator ,  Vishnu  the Preserver and Siva the Destroyer . At the time of creation Ayurveda dawned as a ray of enlightenment in the cosmic consciousness of Brahma  the Eternal Creator
Brahma then imparted the knowledge to his disciple Daksha Prajapati , who passed it on the Aswins, the twin Gods , who in turn conferred it to Indra , the king of gods. During  meeting sage Bharadvaja lord  Indra gave this knowledgeto him . He then taught this science to Atreya- who further transmitted this knowledge throughout world
‘Brahma’ , the Self-Existent and the Creator Composed Ayurveda as a branch of Atharva Veda . A hundred thousand verses in a thousand chapters Divided by him into eight limbs or parts. Ayurveda originated in and developed from these hymns. In this sense, Ayurveda is considered  to have divine origin for health.
 Later Agnivesh who was foremost among the disciples of Atreya wrote Agnivesha Samhita- the most comprehensive form of Ayurveda. The oldest compilations of Atreya and Agnivesha are lost. There are three main re-organizers of Ayurveda whose works still exist and in use. These works were compiled in texts of Charaka, Sushruta and Vaghbata Samhita.
