Endorsements

"Dr. Svoboda literally embodies the wisdom of Ayurveda. He is a spiritual seeker and practitioner of the highest order and lives in that most rare of worlds...one that exists in perfect balance, here mystical and medical become one."

Krishna Das, spiritual vocalist in the bhakti yoga tradition, creator of five CDs including Breath of the Heart, Pilgrim Heart, and Door of Faith, which bring to the West his unique approach to the practice of devotional chanting.

"In this book Dr. Svoboda has beautifully explained the history of Ayurveda, its basic principles and applications in our daily lives. Following these will help to expand the scope of your life, including your mental and physical health as well as longevity. Reflecting Dr. Svoboda’s Eastern and Western integrative approach to Ayurveda, this book is a practical guide for the student and layperson alike."

Vasant Lad, B.A.M.S., M.A.Sc., Ayurvedic Physician, author of Ayurveda: The Science of Self-Healing, Textbook of Ayurveda, and many others as well as an internationally known teacher, lecturer and founder of The Ayurvedic Institute in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
