Welcome to the Baidyanath World
Ayurveda in Daily Life
In order to keep the tridoshas in a state of healthy equlibrium and digestion & metabolism (agni) in proper order, AYURVEDA prescribes for each individual a specific daily routine ( dina - day & acharya - behaviour). The various stages to this daily routine, influenced by the specifics of your prakriti, that will enable you to make the most out of your life, are :
Since our biological clocks are attuned to the rising and setting of the sun, it is obviously better to awake at sunrise in perfect synchronisation to the natural clock.
