      Geoff Pevere Toronto Star A film that takes you inside the rhythms of its subject: You experience it as you watch. Rated: 3/5 Mar 7, 2003 Full Review Ray Conlogue Globe and Mail If Ayurveda can help us return to a sane regimen of eating, sleeping and stress-reducing contemplation, it is clearly a good thing. Rated: 2.5/4 Mar 7, 2003 Full Review Dave Kehr New York Times Alternative medicine obviously has its merits ... but Ayurveda does the field no favors.

      Audience Member Brilliant documentary. Hope is nature's way to let us survive, so that one day we discover the nature itself. Pan Nalin brings another masterly crafted documentary. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member Tells you the saga of the oldest system of medicine known to man.. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Great subject and worthy of a well-done documentary. Unfortunately, this is not it. I believe in the value of Ayurveda as a practice, but this presents it in a manner that for me was not believable. As Dave Kehr said in his RT review said, "Alternative medicine obviously has its merits, but Ayurveda (the movie) does it no favors." I agree. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Everyone should see this film to get an understanding to an ancient philosophy and way of being. Just like in Chinese Medicine, Ayuverdic Doctors treat patients with natural medicines and way of thinking about life and since it is a such an old science (5000 years) it should also be accepted by Western medicine (less than 1000 years old). The film is an excellent way for someone who doesn't have any knowledge about this, without moralizing. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Facinating documentary Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member Very informative and interesting.
