The World Panchakarma Guide was launched on Aksha Tretya in May 2008 as a global Ayurvedic project for world healing. It is a Vedic Society online project. It was innaugurated with a Mahamrtyunja havan and prayer for world healing.
WHAT IT IS:
The guide is an online dynamic reference to Panchakarma Hospitals around the world. It tells you where you can have Panchakarma treatments and allows people who have visited such centers and the centers themselves to provide feedback giving a prospective patient a good guide to finding a hospital that can suit their needs, and most important of all, it is an aid to our spiritual unfoldment and restoring good health upon planet earth which is the very aim of Panchakarma.
Panchakarma clinics from around the world can submit an application to be listed in the guide which will be processed by our team and uploaded into the guide once it has been reviewed. To submit a listing one needs to complete a detailed questionnaire which provides a relatively clear picture of the facilities, treatments and underlying atmosphere and awareness of the hospital as well as any specific diseases it has focused on.
The beauty of the guide is that patients who have visited the listed centers can create an account and submit their testimonials (either with their name, or anonymously) which are visible for others to read allowing for people to share their stories, experiences, healings or suggestions.
It is our prayer that this dynamic feedback mechanism which the web allows will encourage the quality of the entire Panchakarma community to be uplifted to the highest ideal which was the intention of it's founders the ancient Rishis (sages) who gave this knowledge in the interests of inner and outer happiness for all.
- To make people aware of Panchakarma and it's beautiful healing gifts that are a true treasure for all humanity.
- To give genuine Panchakarma hospitals a platform to be found on the web and also a place where people can give feedback on their experience visiting such centres.
- To encourage highest and most conscious standards in every aspect of Panchakarma Hospitals around the world.
- To promote Panchakarma treatments of highest quality to each country and make it available to the people there who seek them.
Many of our Vedic family at Vedic Society have experienced the physical and spiritual benifits of Panchakarma as practiced in the light of this time old system of perfect health. Inspired by the remarkable changes for the good we wish to help others in each corner of the world access this healing wisdom. We wish to help those practicing this in the true spirit of the science to be found for the benifit of those in need of help.
The classical text Charaka Samhita which refers to the detailed practice of Panchakarma mentions this science in the chapter called Siddhisthana. Siddhi means perfection to become perfected, the perfection being refered to is our deep inner connection with the Divine so that all our actions are in alignment with God's will. If the human body which is indeed a microcosm of the entire universe is brought into harmony and in alighnment with nature, our life is perfected and becomes that of a Siddha.
About the Logo:
Sneha in Sanskrit is the word for oil and it also is a synonym for love. In our logo we show the entire planet earth being bathed in sneha or love. It is this very love that is the culmination of Ayurveda. Veda means realised Truth connected to the Divine source of all. So Ayur-Veda is a life of realised Truth connected to Source. It is as simple as that. More love through our speach, words, actions and deeds. More peace in our heart, home, family and nation. More bliss, enlightenment for all. This is the true gift for Ayurveda, it's highest ideal. May we see it realised more and more each day.
Aum Dhanvantharaye Namaha
With Much Sneha,
