The seasons of Ayurveda (singalong)

CHORUS
G   Em
Ayurveda
C                                             C
Can health really be such a simple thing?

Ayurveda
Have patience while I unlearn what I've learnt

Ayurveda
Everything is already obvious

VERSE
G
In the winter I need to know
D
How to stop from feeling so cold
G                                                      D
Feeling dried out and chapped on the out and inside

Give me warm heavy foods to eat
A way to warm up my cold feet
Teach me how to stay with a steady mind

With a practice of meditation
And daily sun salutations
And pranayama that will set me free

CHORUS

VERSE
And with sickness in the spring
As my body's liquefying
Give me the focus I need to perform a fast

Eating light, eating bitter
Pungent and astringent
And taking herbs to help my Kapha move

So I can celebrate this season
Without giving my body a reason
To clean me out with a fever or to suffer allergies

CHORUS

VERSE (SLOW)
In the summer when I'm on fire
A mess of anger and desire
Take me out to lie down in the moonlight

Show me how I need to rest
When it gets hot and I'm stressed
And my appetite is less and I can't digest

With Pita-pacifying foods
I can control my fiery mood
Avoiding alcohol and exercise

CHORUS
