Ayurveda Is Here to Stay Forever!!
Did our ancient seers know that Ayurveda will be “talk of the world” in 2021? The answer is surely, a resounding yes!! Our ancient seers very confidently talked about ever-modern nature of Ayurveda. The ancient seers were very confident about the soundness of the principles of Ayurveda. According to Ayurveda, the human body is a miniature universe! The concept of TRIDOSHA, i.e. of Vata, Pitta and Kapha, which are the functional elements of the body, is based on the Wind, the Sun, and the Moon respectively! Eternal nature of the Wind, the Sun and the Moon ensures the eternity of Ayurveda!! According to Ayurveda, strong defence system is the strong and sound balance of Tridosha, the functional elements of the body.
For millennia, Ayurveda evolved through a process of scientific enquiry involving communities and societies. The scientific knowledge was created by an interchange of information between patients, physicians and researchers. Teachers would pass their wisdom, updated with this scientific inquiry and application of their own learnings to their students in an interactive manner, through what was called as the Guru-Shishya tradition. There are no limitations to the knowledge of Ayurveda, continuous growth is its nature. Also, there is no limit for knowing the Science of Ayurveda. Various Tadvidya Sambhasha, Scientific conferences are described in Charaka Samhita, the ancient book of Ayurveda.
We realize the importance of Ayurveda, when we hear about the Nobel Prizes in Medicine or Physiology awarded in the current decade. From 2015 to 2020, all Nobel Prizes, confirm the authenticity of some or other basic Ayurveda principle, be it of fasting or Circadian Rhythm!
Globally, the world is in favour of Ayurveda, the most ancient Health Science now enjoys unprecedented world patronage. We should strive the most so that Ayurveda gets its rightful place as a mainstream medicinal system.
Our beloved Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi said, ‘Ayurveda could rightly be described as a holistic human science. The current situation presents a right time for traditional medicine to become even more popular globally’, while inaugurating the fourth edition of the Global Ayurveda Festival 2021. Here, he was referring to the current situation of CORONA pandemic. Corona pandemic has underlined the importance of strong defense mechanisms, strong immunity.
It is necessary that scientific communities reach out to Translational Knowledge Systems available locally. Let us all work towards our Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s vision of 'Vocal for local should become mantra for every Indian!!
By being vocal about Ayurveda, we make it “GLOBAL”, the rightful status it deserves.
