AYURVEDIC PRODUCTS TO BALANCE YOUR NUTRITION
Your cells must have balanced nutrition to perform their functions. It is essential that we feed them correctly with all the essential and non-essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids and fats, carbohydrates and water, as recommended by our western sciences. The science of life, Ayurveda reminds us that the brain deciphers the universe encoding herself as taste. Ayurveda classifies six essential tastes (sweet, sour, salty, pungent, bitter, astringent). Ayurveda also teaches about their potencies, thermal qualities, energetics and properties, such as heaviness or lightness, moistness or dryness, smoothness or roughness and so on, together with post-digestive effects which are factored towards the balanced nutrition of an individual. Ayurvedic products that assist you achieve all six tastes include:FOOD ITEMS
- Peace Food: Body and Soul Vegan Meals
- Nirvana Breakfasts
- Nirvana Chai
- Pure Shanti Chilli Pickle (hot and spicy)
- Pure Shanti Date and Tamarind Chutney (Sweet and sour)

Our fresh, free range eggs are laid by healthy hens that roam freely over natural pastures during the daylight hours, have cooking scraps and forrage in the vegetable gardens (not always enjoyed by the gardeners), drink Nirvana pure and natural spring water, and then rest safely in their pen at night to protect them from predators and the elements.
PURE NIRVANA SPRING WATER
Only oxygen is more essential than water in sustaining the life of all organisms. Respiration, digestion, assimilation, metabolism, elimination, waste removal and temperature regulation are bodily functions that can only be accomplished in the presence of water. Water is essential for dissolving and transporting nutrients such as oxygen and mineral salts via the blood, lymph and other bodily fluids. Water also keeps the pressure, acidity and composition of all chemical reactions in equilibrium.
Pure, natural, premium quality, Nirvana spring water, with absolutely no chemicals added, is delivered to your home or office free. The water is extracted directly at the source of Nirvana’s natural spring in the pristine 70 acre property, in Beechmont. The water is sweet. It has not been pumped through lots of pipes and stored in lots of tanks (=contamination risk!) and there is no chlorine after taste that you get with supplied town water.

WEARABLE ART. JEWELLERY AND SHANTI YOGA GEAR
The initiatives are inspired by the perspectives of Shanti Gowans who says:
Healthy and sustainable transformation of outer structures begins with the discovery of natural inner resources and capacities of individuals to be of service.
Nothing stands still. The answer is simple, yet profound. The truth about change is that there are no fixed answers. One time this might feel appropriate, another time it may not. To go with the flow, you may need to go against the grain. Just be still and present with each experience.
We must reach within first, in order to embrace humanity. Generosity is the key to infinite abundance. When we value and share the natural, inner wealth of peace, love, happiness and wisdom, we can experience true and lasting prosperity.
The future, i.e. creation, is based upon the opposite of war, which is destruction. Give peace a chance. Only when we make peace with ourselves can we hope to make peace with and in the world.
Respect the life and dignity of every living being without discrimination or prejudice.
Reject violence in all of its forms and towards all beings.
Resolve conflict with grace and graciousness.
Reconcile differences and pursue harmony.
Support freedom of expression and cultural diversity.
Be kind and generous. Let no one ever come to you without coming away better and happier.
Be blessed, Shanti Gowans
