Welcome to Prāṇāyu Journey above Health

We are delighted to welcome in the domain of Prāṇāyu Medicine-and-Life-Science also designated by: Ahiṃsā-Āyurveda, Jaina-Āyurveda, Yoga-Āyurveda, Prāṇa-Āyurveda, Sattvik-Āyurveda... It stands at the convergence of ancestral Āyurvedic medicine, Yogic wisdom, Ahiṃsā-vijñāna, Karmology…


Our journey goes back to 2006, in the little Āyurvedic clinic and research centre called Sadhana, located in France and ramifying in Karnataka-Maharashtra border.

There, we have been thoroughly practising, studying and researching on

this ancestral medicine, integrating with modern science and have the bliss to witness the rebirth to the Prāṇāyu, the Jaina-Yoga-Āyurveda science, and its

powerful mind-enlightening and all-diseases-curing results.


Overall, Prāṇāyu Life-Science is a remarkable discipline that intertwines the realms of Āyurveda, Siddha, Yoga, Unani, homeopathy, naturopathy, chemical-free-allopathy, and surpassing physical healing encompasses psychology, neurology, soteriology (mokṣamārga), yogic power acquisition, nature connection, ecology, quantum-physics…


The enlivening Innate Power of Prāṇāyu


Along our practice, we observed with renewed fascination how Prāṇāyu Ahiṃsā Life-Science, always assures the strongest results in the cure of all physical diseases and mental afflictions far above imagination. It unfolds innumerable powerful unexpected faculties for the patient. Prāṇāyu literally elevates and opens new dimensions of humanness.

That is why, the Prāṇāyu physician or Vaidya is duly titled Prāṇācārya – Life-force-master. Indeed, the track of Prāṇāyu merges the health-path into the illumination-path in a straight continuum. Therefore, having entered through the health gate, the patient becomes a student gradually enlightened by his ascension on the happiness-road of this Ahiṃsā Life-Science.


In this transformative journey he will be blessed and fulfilled by the realisation of unsuspected potentials. Day-by-day he shall feel the exponential growth of his vigour, his will-power, his vision, his ability in the realisation of deeper dreams, his increasing helpfulness to others, his unshakable connect-fullness mother-nature and to all living-beings.


Overall, fostering all potentials, energy, light, for of oneself, one automatically uplifts others and becomes a shelter of life, peace and non-violence.


Prāṇāyu's Authoritative Sovereignty

Prāṇāyu, the Prāṇa-Āyurveda, dispenses decisive scientific lights for the understanding of all medical branches like nutrition, microbiology (like gut-micro-flora), cancerology, immunology, epigenetic, neurology, psychiatry, yoga, etc.


Prāṇāyu, Ahiṃsāyurveda, reveals scientifically validated impactful, needful knowledges on the goodness and ‘healingness’ of:

- the Annaprāṇa – grain based ancestral diet also known as Annāhāra, Ahiṃsānna, Yogāśana

- the exclusion of rājasik and tāmasik food like flesh, bread, ready made food, etc.

- the avoidance onion-garlic family plants (alliaceae) with other fermentissible and fermented unwholesome substances or preparations,

- the āyambila, rasaparityāga and nir-vigaya-s (including milk products, oily food, sweet substances, fermented food, food containing life…),

- the laws of ekāśana, dvayāśana, trayāśāna,

- the rātribhojana-tyāga (taking food before sunset),

- the pertinence of vegan nutrition,

- the purity of heart, mind and body,

- all effective protocols that purifies the brain, awakens the mind…

All being supported by modern researches in respect of microbiology, neurotherapy, gut-flora microbiota, nycthemeral metabolism function, chrononutrition, gastro-enterology, etc.



Dietary prescription of Prāṇāyu, Life-Science

Prāṇāyu unique concepts and profound impact

Prāṇāyu expertise touches upon multiplicity of life related fields which secret laws have still to be elucidated.

Wherever modern science walks faltering steps in darkness, when it is shaken by controversies, wheresoever in stumbles in contradiction clashes, Prāṇāyu provides clear insights, unifying view and promising instructions. Its practitioner proves that its eternal advancements, surmounts scientific discoveries and philosophic concepts.

Whenever latest science takes pride in studies of largest scale caliber as per their population size, their time duration, their considered co-factors; Prāṇāyu holds its knowledge through thousands or millions years successive generations. Its cognition emerges the closest from mother nature’s, who is the singular impress of generating Life and Consciousness.

Whenever contemporary science integrity and objectivity is questioned by conflict of interest and cognitive biases, Prāṇāyu ascertains its solidity from vītarāgayogī – passionless-saints known to have compassion even for their enemies.

In the comparison of diseases with a leaking tape, at-the-cutting-edge medical interventions excels in cleaning the bathroom. Countless strategies higher-bid with enumerable chemicals, elaborated protocols, impressive technologies, vertiginous expert committees, etc. Meanwhile, Prāṇāyu will precisely point how to close the tape.

When overall actual science takes the license of cruel human experimentation, inhuman animal vivisections, microscopes, etc. Prāṇāyu’s seer reveals omniscience from the eyes of their heart.

Prāṇāyu, ‘Life-giver - Life-gived’ law

Etymologically, Prāṇa-Āyu means literally the ‘vitalising-illuminating’ science.

Āyu is the ‘vitalisation’ of all behavioural functions at psychic-mental-somatic levels providing all intelligences and skills. Mean-while Prāṇa ‘illuminates’ the cognitive clarity; Prānā pervades the broadest wisdom to consciousness.

Prāṇāyu as Yoga-Āyurveda, shall effortlessly strengthen our will-power muscle, tune our desire to our perfect essential needs, rises our true Life-instinct; out awakened intelligence of body, brain and heart. Prāṇāyu as Ahiṃsā-Āyurveda, shall build the Tīrtha - ford for realising our inalterable health potential and our soul enlightenment.


Semantically, the two words prāṇa – vital-spirit and āyu – life-energy are both corollary synonyms of ahiṃsā – non-violence. Prāṇa is also known as jīva – soul and āyu is jivīva – life force both inherently dependant on ahiṃsā – non-violence. Prāṇāyu, the Prāṇa-Āyurveda is substantialised by the energy of ahiṃsā - non-violence.


Embodying ahiṃsā, Prāṇāyu, incarnates per the universal unanimous supreme rule of Life’s favourableness relies on the mutualistic beneficence, reciprocal reinforcing “parasparopagraho-jīvāṇām-[upakāraḥ]”(Umasv ami, Tattvārthasūtra-5.21).


_ “Ahiṃsā is the unique strongest Life-growing quality”

Says the illustrious clairvoyant Agniveṣa under the pen of the pious ascetic Caraka Ahiṃsā

(“ahiṃsā-utkruṣṭama-eka-prāṇa-vardhanam”_Charaka-Saṃhitā-sū.XXX.15& CS-śā.II.44).

_ “Ahiṃsā and vitarāga - dispassion and holistic-health meet on the same summit”;

Proclaims lyrically the eminent saint Vāgabhaṭa.


_ “Srength arise from touching upon the state of fraternity, compassion, gratitude and understanding toward all living beings”

Ascertains the yogī Pantañjala, st

(“maitryādiṣu balāni”_Yogasūtra-3.23).

_ “Ahiṃsā is the energy-force based on faith creativity, it encompasses all interactions leading oneself to find Satya – the Divine-Truth

Life lives on life. (...) and constantly growing in self-restraint and compassion. (…) Underlying ahimsa is the unity of all life”;

Attests and exemplifies the magnanimous Mahātma Gandhi, in the luminescence of the wise sage Rājacandra (cf. Satyaprayoga-ātmakathā,etc._M.Gandhi)


That is why simultaneously with physical cure, Prāṇāyu reveals the deepest treasures of all human potentials, through the purification of all karmas leading to infinite happiness, energy, clarity, knowledge...

Overall, the well-wisher who wants take all the pain and spread goodness to all living beings will attain a master level through learning the science of Prāṇāyu. He will ascend the Prāṇāyu road of Life and concomitantly give bliss to number living being.



Unravelling Prāṇāyu’s Mysterious origin

In the compilations of ancient texts, Prāṇāyu, emerges from a forest of wisdoms, knowledges and sciences, deeply rooted in Ahiṃsā traditions, as Jaina, Yoga, Āyurveda, etc. Prāṇāyu pertains to the spirit of Anekānta – all-view points acceptance and integration.


Some historian examinations recognise Prāṇāyu Ahiṃsā Life-science back-to the reputed non-violent, Indus-Valley-Civilisation (IVC) at the dawn of neolithic. Prāṇāyu is even identified as the very origin of classical Āyurveda.

This confirms the primary traditional literature telling that Prāṇāyu, Life-science was entrusted to humanity by the eminent yogī Ādinātha – almighty-of-origin, out of his unbounded dedication to the well-fare of creatures. Ādinātha the yogī, whose symbol is a bull, was dully designated as Ṛṣabhanātha. Concordantly, in the Indus-Valley-Civilisation (IVC), the representation of the bull horned yogī is an important effigy. Propitiously, Ādinātha is an attested historical figure from all-horizon literatures including Purāṇic, Vedic, Vedantic, Shramanic, Jaina, Yogic…

According to the Jaina tradition, in the current avasarpiṇī era, Ṛṣabanātha, is the first Tīrthaṅkara – passage-maker; a ṛṣi – seer endowed with infinite compassion devoted to the welfare of all living beings.

Moreover, the legend traditions dates his birth in 10224 Pūrva-s – years-before which exactly coincides first with the shift from paleo to neolithic era and the dawn of agriculture as well as with the pre-Harappan IVC era. On top of all these concomitances, the benevolent Ādinātha is to be the legendary initiator of farming cultivation along with all arts and sciences.


Prāṇāyu is the denomination of the Shramanic-Jaina 12th Pūrva from the canon of the Caturdaśa-Pūrva-s, also named Prāṇāvāya-Pūrva, Prāṇāyu-Pūrva, or Prāṇa-Pravāda-Pūrva. Commonly, Prāṇāyu is renowned by Pushpa-Āyurveda of Ācārya-Samanta-Bhadra from which only partial fragments could be saved. Among its pillars also stands the 8th century Kalyāṇakārakam of Ūgradityācārya that shares deep insights of Prāṇāyu knowledge.

The indelebil mark of Prāṇāyu is found across a wide literature like the Tattvārthasūtra, Yogasūtra, Carakasaṃhitā, Aṣṭāṅgahṛdaya, Bhāgavadgītā, Mahāpūrāṇa…

Despite all the efforts of the all scriptures heritage preservation, a considerable work is to be done in respect of the Prāṇāyu life-science.


The core principle of Prāṇāyu, Ahimsāyurveda is explicit contribution to non-violence and its ethos aligns with Hippocrates oath, bioethics, respectful sciences, responsible medicines (notorious slogan of international physician committee PCRM), animal welfare, social equality, sustainable agriculture, biodiversity preservation (as the key of human and planetary health according to WHO), environment safeguard, brightness of future generations…
