Dear friends, patients, fellow human beings
Namaste from vaidyagrama, an initiative of punarnava ayurveda based in coimbatore in south india!
Please take time out to read this letter that comes to you from each of us who have chosen to make vaidyagrama our home.
vaidyagrama is an experimental green Ayurveda healing community borne of the desire to "live simple, live well, live healthy, live happy!" While this desire seemed to be easy to achieve, it is only at the commencement of this journey that we learnt how difficult this can be.
Nature was with us; the plants, the animals, the forces of nature were all with us. But society was not with us; the laws of the land were not with us; and most importantly we discovered a disconnect within our own selves – it was easy to talk about living life in tune with the principles of Ayurveda; it was more difficult to practice it. It was on this note that the journey began as we did the bhumi puja or the ground breaking ceremony in the month of January 2008.
Now, several years later, and wading through the midst of many obstacles, we have reached where we are now. More than 800 patients from over 50 countries have experienced the Vaidyagrama space. More than 70 of us attempt to take care of this space in as natural a way as possible; we learn every day from our mistakes. We are still in the process of creating the connect within our own selves and nature and as we progress, we are sure that this connect will become more evident in the response of the land to our efforts.
We also look forward to involving the surrounding villages in this endeavor to “live simple, live well, live healthy, live happy!” While our neighbors were initially skeptical of our efforts, today they are more inclined to listen to us and to understand what we attempt to do.
We believe that the creation of a self-sustained natural farming community built on the principles of Ayurveda is an ideal way forward in the interest of Mother Earth; and we have taken our first baby steps in this direction. We seek your support in the achievement of this process by understanding the following –
We pray for all round well being; we pray that we are able to continue to serve to the best of our capacity; we pray that Vaidyagrama is more home and less hospital for each and every one who experiences this space. We pray for your support in this journey that we have undertaken.
Yours in the service of humanity & Ayurveda
The Vaidyagrama community.
