History Of Ayurveda

Ayurveda is an ancient system of medicine with roots in the Indian subcontinent. It has been practiced for over two millennia and is associated with Lord Dhanvantari, an avatar of the Hindu god Vishnu. Lord Dhanvantari is considered the god of Ayurveda and is often depicted with four hands, carrying a bowl of amrita, the elixir of immortality.

Sri Lanka’s Ayurvedic history is distinctly shaped by the interplay of indigenous practices and those introduced through the invasion of King Vijaya. This unique fusion has laid the groundwork for a diverse and vibrant Ayurvedic tradition in the country. Over time, the practice of Ayurveda has dynamically evolved, adapting its treatments to meet the specific needs of different provinces. This flexible and adaptive approach has become a hallmark of Sri Lanka’s Ayurvedic system. Today, the island nation stands as a hub for Ayurvedic practitioners and institutions, emphasizing the continued significance of this ancient healing tradition in fostering the health and wellness of the Sri Lankan population.
