No. Ayurvedic principles are universal and anybody can incorporate them into his or her daily life. There is no need to become religious in order to adopt the principles of Ayurveda. Besides, Ayurveda is not a religious Hindu text. Rather, Ayurveda is a rational science that celebrates universal principles. While deeply spiritual in subject (in the sense of matters of mind and spirit are addressed in Ayurveda), Ayurveda is not ‘Hindu’ as in every day sense of ‘Hinduism’. Ayurveda does not advocate a particular religion or a deity.
