In everyday terms, what would it mean to possess Divine Beauty? Is it truly some unreachable milestone in personal beauty, a natural, God-given gift for just a lucky few?
Not so – not with Ayurveda at hand!
Ayurvedic knowledge is believed to have been passed to ancient Indian seers from the Gods. It began with Brahma the Creator, who passed the knowledge to his son Daksha Prajapati; who in turn passed it down to the Twin Devas of Ayurveda, the Ashwini Kumaras. They in turn presented the knowledge to Lord Indra, the king of Gods.
Indra had 3 physicians, acharyas, as his disciples – Bharadwaj, Kashyapa and Divodas Dhanvantari. Bharadwaj’s student Agnivesha developed the fundamental treatise on internal medicine, which was later revised by Acharya Charaka, the author of the Charaka Samhita. The Mahabharata itself describes how Vishnu the Preserver reincarnated as Dhanvantari, emerging from the churning of the Cosmic Ocean. We have heard of that one famous disciple of Dhanvantari – the Father of Vedic Surgery, Sushruta, the author of the Sushruta Samhit
This is a short, but profound sequence of events, describing how knowledge of Divine Health, Beauty and Wellbeing reached Earth from Heaven.
Everything Ayurveda teaches, is therefore Divine. Ayurveda is to be understood and treated with sincerity and respect because its quiet potency is truly transformational. There is a reason why it is not just a healing methodology, but a holistic way of living.
How does Kama Ayurveda’s latest offering – the Suvarna Haldi Chandan Brightening Face Pack -channel Secrets of Divine Beauty?
Haldi has spiritual significance in Hindu traditions, because it is believed that Lord Vishnu, of whom Dhanvantari is an avatar – loves to be decorated with it. Chandan is believed to be one of the scents associated with Lord Krishna’s body – who is also an avatar of Lord Vishnu. It is also believed to be the predominant fragrance of Paradise. Chandan is associated with the Sacral Chakra, which governs unconscious emotional processing, relationships, sexuality and sensuality and creativity. Haldi is associated with the Solar Plexus Chakra – the seat of ‘gut feelings’ – or the energy vortex that governs feelings of personal power and assertiveness, and the alignment of the Core Self with the Cosmos.
Between the both of them, the Divine Spice (Haldi) and the Fragrance of Paradise (Chandan), when included in your beauty rituals, help you reconnect with that Naturally Beautiful, Fearless version of yourself that you had either forgotten or pushed away.
The timeless strength of these ancient healers has been captured in Suvarna, a product that takes minutes to prepare and apply – it is all about time-efficiency, for timeless beauty.
