Ayurvedic wisdom-based diet recommendations for health

Why Ananda?

Ananda (happiness) was a first cousin of Gautama Buddha and one of his ten principal disciples. Amongst the Buddha’s many disciples, Ananda stood out for having the most retentive memory. Most of the sutras of the Sutta Pitaka (very important Buddhist writing) are attributed to his recollection of the Buddha’s teachings during the First Buddhist council. For that reason, he was known as the Guardian of the Dharma.

Since most of us lack the ability to memorize all there is to know about Ayurvedic nutrition principles, we have created this database that we call Ananda.
