Wise Earth Monastery
Founded by Maya Tiwari in 1981, Wise Earth School of Ayurveda is the first school for Ayurveda teachings in the USA
In the Vedic tradition…
Just as there are many modalities of Yoga and Meditation, there are specific schools of thought in Ayurveda. These schools are identified by the names of the sages who have manifested, or written specific protocols and values for that body of work. In the case of Maya Tiwari’s work for Wise Earth School, sadhana is identified as our unique educational model, as opposed to the clinical and prescriptive models inherent in modern Ayurveda schools.
Sages and seers are known to keep the wisdom of the Vedas alive by re-manifesting bodies of its massive work, and reintroducing them when the time or era demands that specific knowledge. Maya Tiwari’s work of Wise Earth Ayurveda® flows in seamless accord with the infinite wisdom of her Vedic tradition called Veda Vyasa.
The Vedic tradition sees its authors and sages, along with their tomes of knowledge as immortal; perennially sustained from timeless beginning to the present day. As an oral tradition, the Vedas is preserved through its parampara-generation after generation by numerous Vedic sages and gurus. Many sages take physical birth into the earthly plane of existence, yet, they are not considered earthly beings that simply subsist in the present. They produce tomes of knowledge, and then disappear into the world of the Pitris to become our ancient ancestors. They are individually and collectively seen as the One, perennially generating Infinite Consciousness- Brahman- who is born every day and never dies.
