Global Good News comment:

* Ayurveda is the world's oldest, most comprehensive system of natural medicine. Ayurveda originated in the Vedic civilization of ancient India and is officially recognized by the World Health Organization. Maharishi Ayur-Veda, Maharishi's Vedic Approach to Health, and Maharishi Vedic Medicine represent the modern restoration by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi of the complete and authentic practice of Ayurveda as recorded in the Vedic texts.
