Daivavyapasraya (spiritual therapies) - Drawing upon the New Testament

Daivavyapāsraya (spiritual therapies) are a well recognised part of the Ayurvedic approach to treatment for mental health problems.

One method of daivavyapāsraya is dharma-vākya (religious quotations). As with other spiritual therapies suggested within Ayurveda, this approach is not confined to any one religion.
