A Pukka Life is about living in a truly authentic way, guided by the wisdom of Ayurveda, to achieve perfect health and happiness. Ayurveda is a complete system of knowledge that deals with physical health, mental balance, spiritual well-being, relationships and environmental issues. In all the essential aspects of contemporary life, from the food you eat to the work you do, from the relationships that sustain you to the natural world that nurtures you, Ayurveda can help you fulfil your potential and enable you to lead a pukka life. The seven chapters each relate to a specific area of wellbeing: Constitution; Nourishment; Cleansing; Rejuvenation; Strength & Stillness; Ecology; Relationship. Written by an experienced practitioner, the book is packed with philosophical insights, dietary and nutritional information, massage and rejuvenation plans, meditation and yoga exercises, as well as the Pukka larder, an appendix of herbs and their benefits.
