Hello!

Thank you for a very relaxing albeit, brief stay. We will see you again!!  The staff have been amazing - the  therapists,  doctors, the cleaners, the cooks and all those behind the scenes. I am just sorry we couldn’t stay longer this time.

A very relaxing and peaceful stay.

Thank you!

Best doctors you will ever know!  I love each and every one of you.

Thanks for putting up with me. I know you won't forget me. So I don't have to say it.

Keep on healing the world! You all have a special place in my heart and in my camera.

Much love,

The calm, peaceful location, the love and comfort extended to me by the doctors, therapists and the complete staff has really healed me. I was not expecting this as I was only accompanying my daughter who has come for a treatment, and was not myself a patient here. I am thankful to everyone.

Thoroughly impressed by the daily prayers, different divine rituals performed here from the time to time. 

Looking forward to being here for a few weeks anytime in future. Thanks! At last, I would also want to share my gratitude for asking me to hoist the national flag on the Republic Day here, and it was indeed a great honour for me. Thank you all for everything!

Vaidyagrama is truly a family that includes staff, patients, the community and the environment. 

After arriving 24 days ago depleted energetically and physically, I am now feeling much happiness, hope and renewal.  The happiness that pervades this community has "infected" me. The doctor chats, the Satsangs, classes and chanting, all remind us that we are already whole, and are much greater and deeper than our health conditions.

This was my first of what I intend to be regular sojourns to this healing space.

In deep gratitude,

Truly impressed with all aspects of my stay at Vaidyagrama. Being from the West, there are some expectations of professionalism and service that we get used to and are not always seen in India. But doctors, staff, therapists truly exceeded all expectations.

The guidance by all the doctors are exceptional as was the support. The care and attention by the therapist was comforting and all the other staff that help to run this place, made us all feel like I was here with my family.

Well done to your Vision of Vaidyagrama. One that will continue to grow I am sure, as I am looking to contribute to its growth by bringing my clients here.

Finally thank you from the bottom of my heart for "everything".

Love and blessings,

What an experience! I came here knowing nothing and I feel like I have learnt so much.

The doctors have been great, sharing information at the satsangs. My big thanks to Dr. Ramanandan and Dr. Hari Kumar for their special treatment.

I am leaving this place with a new body and mind and I can only thank the team. Special thanks to Vinod and Sajith for being such great therapists, and to Joe for taking me back to Bangalore with such great smiles.

A truly special experience, and I hope this place never loses its uniqueness. I hope to meet you soon.

All the best,

I have heard about this Ayurveda place a lot and I always wanted to come. Finally I made it!

It has a very nice and peaceful surrounding; and all the staff are so nice and helpful. Even if I had some Ayurveda massages before, but they are totally different here with the doctor’s advice.

Thank you very much for all the treatments and wonderful experience of all the healthy foods.  Hope that I would come back soon. Thanks again for all the services I received with the warm heart. Namaste!

Sincerely yours,

This is our eighth year at Vaidyagrama and we are as thankful as ever to everyone, for looking after us so well. The more often we come, more we like this wonderful place.

Our thanks to the Doctors, the therapists and the staff for taking such good care. Today Vaidyagrama is quite a different place than what it was in 2011; it has expanded its activities in other fields and it has been improving continuously.

We wish it every success for the future!

From the depth of my heart, thank you!

All you beautiful people making this a very very special place to visit. The healing I have experienced, rested in and been presented to at many different levels has been far more than I could imagine. The way you live a simple life, committed to sustainability, opens my heart and make me more in contact with faith and trust.

It has changed my relationship to the stories in my life and it has created new stories, new healing stories that I bring home. The healing journey will continue.

With love,

To all the Doctors, therapists and cooks (who gave me extra vegetables),  a big thank you for setting me on the road to a healthier life.

While the road is not easy, your commitment to health will stay with me forever and encourage me to live a healthier life myself (but without all the rice !)

Thank you for another wonderful experience here at Vaidyagrama. Being able to come here three years in a row to receive treatments has been a true blessing.

Dr. Harikrishnan, Dr. Kesari, Dr. Athulya and Dr. Radhika are a great team. I feel very lucky to be under their care.

A lot of appreciation goes to therapists also. Lakshmi is awesome. She has more compassion than anyone I know. No matter my treatment was early morning or last of the day, she gave 100% and has a way of making you feel like you are her only patient. Please take care of Lakshmi because she takes care of so many others.

Keep growing Vaidyagrama- The world needs you.

Much love and appreciation,

I came here for a special reason and had a difficult time. I don’t know yet if healing has taken place. But I do know the doctors are wonderful and worked hard and did their very best to treat me. Even when I was difficult, they were patient, kind and optimistic.

Lakshmy and Lavanya were caring and very good therapists and took personal interest in every one in the block. The women who come to clean every day were beautiful, smiling and always helpful. Everyone here has a hand on their heart.

Everyone here at Vaidyagrama, from the kitchen staff to the loving sweet therapists, to the knowledgeable and patient doctors, to the cleaning & office staff, make this place extra special & memorable. I am very grateful for my time here and hopefully will return to experience the healing again.

The grounds are very peaceful & beautifully kept & the activities/ satsangs offered the perfect combo of rest & learning & sharing. I adore the dedication to the spiritual aspects & admire the authenticity. I will never forget this special time in my life (Dec 2017- Feb 2018).

Thank you block 7 staff for your care of us - body, mind and spirit.  And especially to Dr. Harikrishnan, Dr.Kesari , Dr. Athulya and Dr.Radhika for your patience when we ask so many questions, and for your knowledge and practice. I have learned much.

Vaidyagrama is a remarkably idealistic community. The Ayurvedic Panchakarma treatments are authentic; but the best thing are all the opportunities to learn about the deeper meaning & spirituality. I was lucky to have several opportunities to speak with the Swami here & learned more than I have in several years.

We stayed for 18 days and found Vaidyagrama a great place to heal your body. One thing we realised is that if you are suffering from some acute/ chronic ailments, this is the place to be.

The whole set up is excellent... Great design for the village, individual apartments, staff, treatment, service etc.. All top quality.

Good luck....Hare Krishna!

After my first visit to Vaidyagrama, I leave after 3.5 weeks feeling blessed, invigorated, strong and vibrant. This magical oasis of authentic healing is made possible by the clear vision and purpose created by small group of visionary doctors who have created a vibrant culture kept alive by exceptional staff, therapists and doctors in alignment to provide deep and nourishing care. 

To my great delight, I discovered a surrounding community of healers in their own way; Elders, children, priest at the temple, orphanage and endless green organic gardens and cows.

I feel a lifelong connection to this “family of friends” and see you all again in next year.

With great admiration, inspiration and affection,

A truly exceptional living spiritual, healing community!

I recommend Vaidyagrama to anyone in search of real healing...what a remarkable gift, exceptional love, devotion and care from a noble class team of staff from the cleaners to the doctors. A better run organisation in either business or non-profit circles. Truly to be recommended and supported.

Thank you,

My blessings!

This was very first stay in vaidyagrama. As already experienced in  Ayurveda, I did know what will come. But it came real better. My 3 weeks in your healing village (that means feeling part of this community) were wonderful, ever though I did not feel always fine.

Things come up through the mind- physically, emotionally and in mind –and this was not pleased but very helpful too. This is full of worship, peace and is a protected place- rare in India and the world. How is it possible to love and keep good a lively silence? The nature (plants, birds) and the surroundings are enchanting and magic. The daily routine -  prayers, satsang, puja, are nourishment. You offer really a window to the inner world and the world outside.

Thanks to all the wonderful staff, the doctors, physicians, kitchen staff……thank you for your help, kindness, friendliness. Thanks to Dr. Ramdas for looking after me well, and for the medical advice. Thanks to all satsangs with Dr. Ramkumar, Daniela and the others.

Few comments:

The food is very tasty and good, but sometimes a little bit spicy and salty.

You should not allow smart phones and computers during prayer and satsang.

After having spent past 4 days in heaven, I really don’t want to leave Vaidyagrama yet. It is difficult to write about what is good here, because everything is just perfect. The facilities are comfortable, doctors are knowledgeable, food is awesome and everyone is so kind and caring.

I will certainly recommend my friends and family to come here and get their treatment.

Best wishes,

It’s been a wonderful experience overall. The body and mind has become light and relived of all stress. The ambience and serenity of Vaidyagrama is refreshing in itself. The mantras and chantings with pranayama is soothing and useful to the mind. The doctors, therapists, and the other staff are very cordial and friendly making one ease and not missing home.

Dr Ramadas and team have taken real good care and they are very respectful to our needs. I have had a peaceful and fruitful time at Vaidyagrama, and benefits to my health is very visible. I am happy to be here and wish to be back for longer duration next time.

Thanks to Dr. Ramdas, Dr. Sajna and all others at Vaidyagrama.

I came in very sceptical, wondering whether I would last the rigours of the treatments for two weeks. But the doctors and the people here made the two weeks go by as though it was a few hours of exhilarating fun time.

Days went by as minutes, and with each passing day you felt more energized and felt great mentally and physically. The treatments nourished your body and soul. The environment with natural herbs and plants made you sleep well and breathe Ayurveda air.

Dr.Ramadas was great at what he was doing and ably assisted by Dr Sajna. They made you feel at home. And the well trained staffs were fantastic.

Thanks to all with love,

I have reached here exhausted and very depleted, my system stuck. The commitment to this healing could only succeed in truly spiritual, committed and lightly professional environment. Vaidyagrama is a place to become whole again in its best sense.

Thank you Dr.Ramadas for your heartfelt, soulful and professional guidance.

It surely has helped me to feel so much better and to bring even more focus on my path of growing awareness. I shall stay committed to the process and are planning already to be back!

With warm love and gratitude to this special place and all its loving souls,

This is my second stay in VG. It was not only treatments and doctors' consultations, but also learning experiences. It was a time when I have to make very important decisions in life. Staying in VG helped me to quieten my mind and come to right decisions. I am truly grateful to the staff and doctors, especially Dr. Ramanandan and Dr. Mubash for the help and assistance.

Always fascinated by attending satsangs with Dr. Ramkumar. Impressed by the depth of his knowledge, and ability to communicate and have patience, and of course to have the visionary idea of creating and running VG.

Great thanks to all people at VG, from therapists to the cleaning ladies, for making my stay so enjoyable. One more thing to add, I enjoyed the food, looking forward to learning it myself.

Looking forward to see all of you hopefully in a year.

Truly yours,

My stay here was very enjoyable and beneficial. Both doctors, Ramanandan and Anupama were very knowledgeable and clearly explained the issues and treatments to me. All of my questions were answered and I felt very comfortable. The staff was also very attentive and made sure I had everything I needed. People would frequently check up on me to make sure my needs were met, which I found very helpful.

Overall I noticed that my condition improved dramatically while I was here,and would highly recommend this experience to others. I should also note how helpful my therapists were, not just in therapy, but also in helping me with other things. The lady who cleaned my room was very considerate and also very good at her job.

All three of us had rejuvenation, which was indeed wonderful during our stay at vaidyagrama.

Both the doctors, Dr.Harikumar and Dr. Ramanandan visited us frequently and took care of our treatment well. The block attenders were very prompt in giving us kashayam, meals and drinking water right through the day. The therapists were excellent and ensured that we took the treatment on time every day. The support staff at vaidyagrama were quite sincere and concern makes our stay quite pleasant. The admin team too were very efficient in coordinating things for us.

Overall this experience we had was a memorable one, and we will sure come again for treatment.
