Namo Gange Trust defined "Ayuryujam" as the attainment of good physical and mental health, to lead a better lifestyle and to cure & prevent infirmity. Ayuryujam is derived from two words AYURVEDA and YUJ, Ayurveda is a science of life (Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge). Thus, "Ayurveda" meaning is "life-knowledge". The meaning of "Yuj" is "joining" or "to unite". Yoga is that which joins. The term Yoga has its verbal root as Yuj in Sanskrit. The word "yoga' literally means "union". In the traditional terminology, it is joining of the individual self with the universal SELF.
