Welcome to the True to Yourself Podcast, a place where we explore the power of authentic living. My name is Ananta Ripa Ajmera. I serve as co-founder and CEO of The Ancient Way, and Director of Ayurveda at THE WELL, a beautiful wellness space in the heart of New York City.

Ayurveda, and its sister science of Yoga, are oral lineage-based traditions, passed down from teacher to student since time immemorial. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have studied in one such lineage for 9 years, where I learned Ayurveda, Yoga and the spiritual philosophy of Vedanta directly from the oral tradition and ancient source texts.

Ananta is a spiritual name I received while studying. It is symbolic of my journey to know my true Self. It means "eternal" or "infinite." Another meaning of the name Ananta is the King of the Naga serpents. Ananta is also an Ayurvedic herb with deep roots, which benefits your skin and digestion. It is a definition of Truth, called Brahman (or Supreme Consciousness) in the Vedas. One of the most personally meaningful aspects of receiving the name Ananta for me is how it connects me with my maternal grandfather, a renowned Ayurveda healer from Ahmedabad, Gujarat, India. My maternal grandfather's name was "Amarchand," meaning "eternal moon."

In this podcast, I look forward to sharing with you about the alchemy of Ayurveda, which has deep roots in my family, going back many generations, as well as the ancient wisdom of the Vedas. I will guide you through understanding important verses of revered texts such as "The Bhagavad Gita," "The Upanishads" and more, and am delighted to also introduce you to many respected and wonderful soul friends I have made over the years while traversing the journey of being true to my higher Self.

Welcome home, to your true Self.
