Both Ayurveda and Yoga are sister sciences and both these sciences advocate the balance of body, senses, mind and soul for true happiness and health. According to Ayurveda, in order to understand the body (Sharira), one must understand the senses (Indriyas) and how it protects and nourishes the body. In order to understand the senses, one must understand the functions and qualities of the mind (Manas). Finally to understand the mind, one must understand the individual soul (jivatma) and universal soul (paramatma) and the union of all aspects of an individual with the Universe.
