Ayurveda: The Art of Being is a documentary about the ancient health-care system Ayurveda, which means "The Science of Life" in Sanskrit. The oldest continually practiced medicine in the world, Ayurveda traces its origins to centuries of observations of humans, animals, and plants. At its core, it is an herbal science that is said not only to heal the body, but the spirit as well.

A film that takes you inside the rhythms of its subject: You experience it as you watch.
If Ayurveda can help us return to a sane regimen of eating, sleeping and stress-reducing contemplation, it is clearly a good thing.
Alternative medicine obviously has its merits ... but Ayurveda does the field no favors.
It would work much better as a one-hour TV documentary.
Unspools like a highbrow, low-key, 102-minute infomercial, blending entrepreneurial zeal with the testimony of satisfied customers.

Like all infomercials, Ayurveda: Art of Being is heavy on testimonials and light on statistics.
While the filmmaking may be a bit disjointed, the subject matter is so fascinating that you won't care.
Director Nalin Pan doesn't do much to weigh any arguments one way or the other. He simply presents his point of view that Ayurveda works. No question.
Reinforces the often forgotten fact of the world's remarkably varying human population and mindset, and its capacity to heal using creative, natural and ancient antidotes.
Pan Nalin's exposition is beautiful and mysterious, and the interviews that follow, with the practitioners of this ancient Indian practice, are as subtle and as enigmatic.
A fascinating documentary that provides a rounded and revealing overview of this ancient holistic healing system
