Understanding vaidyagrama healing community

The concept was borne out of a desire to create a healing community on the principles of the classical texts starting with the Vedas. Please click here to understand these principles better.

Some principles of living in the vaidyagrama community include -

  • We believe in the capacity of the Vedas (and all knowledge emanating from the Vedas) to create a healthy, harmonious and happy community.
  • We apply the principles of Ayurveda to life and living as also to healing
  • We believe that the ego has no role to play in creating harmony within and without; we will endeavour to keep our egos outside when we enter the vaidyagrama healing community
  • We endeavor to understand the relationship between the individual (the microcosm) and the universe (the macrocosm); thus we honor the balance of the individual and the group.
  • We commit to making mindful choices to increase harmony with the environment and all life forms through energy conservation, sharing resources, eating organic vegetarian food, and voluntary simplicity.
  • We agree to fulfill our commitments and take responsibility for our thoughts, feelings and actions.
  • We nurture transformation through healing, personal growth and spiritual practice.
  • We seek cooperation through open truthful communication, speaking and listening from the heart.
  • We continually strive to achieve equality, celebrate diversity and cultivate peace.
  • We foster an environment of compassion, patience, integrity, responsibility, love, and joy.
  • We explore creative expression through music, dance, art, poetry, and other art forms.
  • We reach out to the greater community by exchanging knowledge and sharing our way of life through educational programs and service projects.
  • We are patient, trusting the universe to provide what we need at the right time and place.
  • We commit to the understanding of the maxim – Nature has enough for everyone’s need; not everyone’s greed.

"Men did not make the earth..It is the value of the improvement only, and not the earth itself, that is individual property...Every proprietor owes to the community a ground rent for the land which he holds."
