According to the ancient text Caraka-samhita, this ``Science of Life and Longevity`` is eternal and is revealed in each universe in each of its infinite cycles of creation and destruction. This extremely rare appearance of God is recorded in the Vedic literature of ancient India.``Education in Ayurveda has a rich tradition. It was taught in the universities of Takshila and Nalanda in ancient times - the golden era of Ayurveda.
