Welcome to the blog of the ERC-funded research project "Medicine, Immortality, Mokṣa: Entangled Histories of Ayurveda, Yoga and Alchemy in South Asia"!

Entangled Histories of Yoga, Ayurveda and Alchemy in South Asia

Title

The project examines the histories of yoga, ayurveda and rasaśāstra (Indian alchemy and iatrochemistry) from the tenth century to the present, focussing on the disciplines' health, rejuvenation and longevity practices. The goals of the project are to reveal the entanglements of these historical traditions, and to trace the trajectories of their evolution as components of today's global healthcare and personal development industries.
