Ayurveda Conversations” is an opportunity for open discussion on the critical need to renew the practice of Ayurveda from ancient treatises. About 1500 years back, even Vagbhata said “Yuganuruupa sandarbham” – meaning he is updating the science to suit the time and context. That’s long time ago! It’s time to think about an upgrade. The organized discussion has long been a path to building knowledge in the Indian system, and we must question both old and current practices to create new perspectives and pathways.
We all have questions, concerns and views. Our fully charged panel sessions will address all your burning questions about Ayurveda education, practice, manufacturing and so on. This three-day “Ayurveda Conversations” will engage in a deep dialogue with traditional, neo-traditional, and contemporary practitioners, teachers, researchers, writers and students of Ayurveda, covering six themes.
In short, the purpose of this event is to create an open and safe space to bring up all our concerns and questions on “Where are we heading with Ayurveda”. Start a healthy conversation between stakeholders. Explore clinical, research, and manufacturing aspects in relation to current technology and development.
Some of the points in the dialogue include….
- Are the fundamentals such as dosha still relevant today?
- Are we overemphasising Panchakarma today?
- Are the branches like Padarthavigyan relevant today?
- History of Ayurveda- should this be in the curriculum?
