First of all, my Pranams to all people over here… My heart full of thanks to Dr. Harikrishnan. He almost changed my lifestyle. He is compassionate and affectionate, and he has a good Vision and an abundance of love towards people like us.

I don’t have words to appreciate all things here. Dr. Kesari, Dr. Arsha, Dr. Arundhathi are all angels. The environment is also clean and tidy. Therapist Lakshmi is like my mother. All the others are also very good. I enjoyed morning and evening daily prayers, weekly group dinner.

I am praying to Lord Almighty to shower blessings to all the people at Vaidyagrama.

Thank you.

To all at Vaidyagrama…

We came with hope and it has been meted out and transformed into reality. A wonderful healing and inspirational place, which has been a turning point in our lives.

A very special thanks to Dr. Harikrishnan, Dr. Kesari, Dr. Arsha, Dr. Arundhathi for providing personal care. We can never thank you all enough... Your generosity of spirit and service was awe-inspiring.

The staff and therapists were efficient and dedicated. A special mention of praise to Pradeep, Biju, Arun and for Laxmi, Indu and Roshini. All meals were delivered punctually and medicines were given with care.

The environment at Vaidyagrama is holistic, healing and nurturing. It taught us the importance of taking a call for a change in lifestyle and a healthier way of life.

Thank you,

To the fabulous vaidyagrama team, Namaskar!!

It has been a pleasure to return to Vaidyagrama and have the insightful Dr. Harikrishnan at the helm of my treatment; Kalpana’s perceptive nature and magical hands, and Nimmi’s assistance in my treatment.

Once again the staffs have gone beyond their call of duty, which I truly appreciate! I look forward to my return next year without any additional complications! My heart -felt thanks to the whole team at Vaidyagrama.

To the Vaidyagrama family…

This is a very special place founded on everyone’s love, dedication and compassion. My experience is beyond words and I am feeling healed in my body, mind and my spirit.

My deepest, heartfelt thanks to Dr. Ramadas - It has been such a blessing to receive his care, Dr. Aruna for her warm heart and wonderful advice… and to everyone else who made my stay here so peaceful, calm and happy.

My therapists, housekeepers, cooks, Hakeem, and both girls who are reception and those who take care of the beautiful gardens. Thank you! I leave from here transformed and return home as a different person. Vaidyagrama lets us live the spirit of Ayurveda, reminds us that we always have God’s love and blessings. We just lose sight of it. How wonderful we can feel, and how good our lives can be. I will miss everyone warmth, concern and laughter. I have met many beautiful people here. I vow to return soon but in the meantime show myself and others a bit of vaidyagrama loving kindness back home.

With all my gratitude and best wishes,

Dear Friends at Vaidyagrama,

It was an amazing experience that I had here for the last three weeks. I don’t know whom to thank. The doctors Dr.Ramanandan, Dr.Hari kumar, Therapists- Devaki, Sasikala and Reshma - all were too good.

No words for Hakim and his team. My only suggestion is that therapists should be given spoken English classes, and a few songs for the foreigners to cherish during their treatment. I enjoyed the prayer sessions morning and evening.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Dear Vaidyagrama,

I came here with an open mind and the vague notion that my body needed the type of healing you seek to provide. Your awe-inspiring generosity of spirit, service, intellect, far exceeded my simple expectations, not only providing the healing I needed, but making me feel sincerely deserving of it.

I will carry forward that new found respect for my health and will be ever grateful for cultivating it. One of the lessons we learnt in Satsangs is that Ayurveda is to be practiced without ulterior motives. It is extremely clear that each doctor here lives that promise, providing care that is magnanimous, non-judgmental, educational and ever patient with our inevitable failures. I have experienced moments of heightened vulnerability here. But those moments were matched with feelings of unparalleled safety.

Special thanks to my adorable lead therapist Arun who had me laughing in delight during most treatments, with his unbelievable energy and earnestness and all the doctors who provided their wisdom during Satsangs with open hearts and open minds.

Looking forward to seeing all of you again next time, and wishing the whole vaidyagrama family much peace and happiness in the meantime.

To all at Vaidyagrama …

I feel so rejuvenated even after only a week and after haven’t been so well, calm and happy in a very long time. Thank you for creating such a special place… It has been an honor to be able to experience it.

Thank you to my wonderful therapist Bindu, Dr. Ramadas and all the staff for your kindness, love. I am incredibly grateful.

These 21 days have been an experience that I shall never forget. The warmth, the love, the care and overall atmosphere is one which makes you feel at home instantly. I love the treatments, consultations and the food (not Kanji), the satsangs, the prayers, the group dinners, the cooking classes - actually everything- the ants in my room too. It seems to me as if I am going from my home here to another place.

Dr Harikrishnan, Dr. Kesari, Dr. Arsha, Dr. Arundhati were really too good. Laxmi and her team were wonderful. The ever-smiling Pradeep needs special mention. I will come every year and will bring my children too. This is an authentic Ayurveda place with great energy in it. Being an Indian, we have access to so much of Ayurveda that we get lost in identifying a genuine place. Now I know and will recommend this place to others.

I become rich after coming here, rich in good health and lots of good friends. Thank you, once again.

With all my best wishes,

Dear Vaidyagrama members,

I came here with some doubts in my mind about the place and treatment procedures. But after experiencing for 15 days, I must admit this is a wonderful place, and here the treatments are properly focused. The environment, pollution-free atmosphere, clean air are some of things which I shall cherish for a long time. I am going to recommend this place to many of my friends and to family members to come here and experience the clean environment and greenery.

All my best wishes,

Dear members of Vaidyagrama,

I am very pleased to be able to come to this therapeutic treatment. It was a great experience. I will come back and also refer my friends and family to come here.

The doctors, Dr. Ramanandan, Dr. Harikumar are gifted in the field of Ayurveda and helped me in the process of my healing. The therapists were all great professionals. I was very happy with the warmth of my main therapists Sajith, Vinod, and supporting team (Arun, Lalu, Jobin, Sachin) were great too. The medicines and food were served on time by Praveena and Devaki, which I appreciate very much. The sense of community support was great and I wish all the best to the vision of Vaidyagrama, and wish they succeed in their meaningful journey.

Thank you very much.

With warm regards,

Dear Vaidyagrama family,

Staying at vaidyagrama was a great experience for me. When I came to this place, I was totally unknown to Ayurveda. But after attending various satsangs, I realized that I have chosen the correct place for treatment. Dr. Ramanandan, Dr. Harikumar has helped a lot in understanding my disease, its causes, its symptoms.. and they created positive attitude in me for my life.

Therapists- Sasikala, Geetu, Devaki - are very sincere, efficient and are always on toes. They are genuine in their work and are appreciable too… I am going to miss them a lot.

The co-patient Sarla Aunty was like a friend, mother and her guidance and words meant a lot for me.

The best part of Vaidyagrama is morning and evening prayers, which brings us so close to God and importance of his blessings in our life.

I wish great success to vaidyagrama family, and hope that this family can heal more number of patients like me. Hope to see you all next year!.

With lots of love and gratitude,

To my Vaidyagrama family,

When my friend recommended Vaidyagrama for Panchakarma, he mentioned this was a special place and after four weeks I can understand what he meant! My stay here has been transformational….not just on a physical level but also on an emotional, mental and spiritual level too. Just how any authentic Ayurveda Panchakarma centre should be!

A very special thank you to Dr. Ramadas for his spiritual guidance, wisdom and taking such good care of me. Dr. Aruna,  for her friendship and lifting me up when I was down. The wonderful Bindu for taking care of me… and Dr. Ramkumar for the insightful satsangs, and his incredible knowledge and wisdom! Aparna, you’re just incredible! Of course, a thank you to all the staff for working so graciously behind the scenes to make this as special as it is.

I have made some wonderful friends who I shall stay in touch with. This place is an excellent example of what can be achieved with right vision and pure intention. I shall be recommending Vaidyagrama to all my patients and look forward to future collaboration.

After my four weeks here, I can sincerely say Vaidyagrama is my extended family. Thank you all for your love, support and making my stay here so healing. I will certainly be back for more Panchakarma and Kanji!

With all my love & gratitude,

When I first got here, you asked “what do you want to be healed of?”. What a kind and generous question! At that time, I didn’t know.. but two weeks later, I have discovered a healthier way of eating and thinking. My purpose seems much clearer- just to live!

This is truly a healing center!

Dear Vaidyagrama,

I am leaving this place with a lot of gratitude for the love, sincerity, dedication, hard work that has gone into making Vaidyagrama such a beautiful, wholesome, positive healing place. I am very thankful to Dr. Ramadas for his affectionate smile, love and care. Also grateful to all the supporting doctors, therapists, kitchen and cleaning staff for everything they did in such a gentle loving and harmonious way.

I will always remember and cherish the friends I have made here… in particular, Ragini ji, a co patient, who supported me through the difficult period of my treatment.

I am also leaving with fond memories of the beautiful trees, flowers, the fresh air, the beautiful sunrise that also made the healing process so much easier and beautiful.

I pray to God for the wellbeing of all the people directly or indirectly involved with VG…

I pray for its continued success in all dimensions and social upliftment projects…

I pray for all the patients at Vg (past, present and future) to have happy and healthy lives.

Thank you,

Nikhil

One suggestion:

The patient education and Satsangs can be made more structured and systematic in terms of content and delivery.

Dear Vaidyagrama,

It’s been a great 3 weeks of quiet, undisturbed healing. Vaidyagrama has been a great learning experience for us. The staff is very cautious and well-meaning.

The doctor’s visit is more like a complete home check-up with a relaxed atmosphere. We loved the stay here and are already planning for next year.

Very fondly,

Vaidyagrama is a concept. The most important and difficult task is always to translate a concept into reality. Vaidya Ramkumar with his team is determined to create a unique place on earth…. That is Vaidyagrama!

Healing comes natural here. Excellent staff and efficient doctors have made a garden of Lord Dhanwantari available for us… Excellent!

My best wishes always,

Dear all family members of vaidyagrama,

We would like to say a big Thank you to all the staff at Vaidyagrama. We are pleased and satisfied with all the help; care; understanding and love rented to us even before our arrival at the center.

Although our stay was very short only 5 days we could find the comfort and peace of mind at this centre. Facilities provided are good, efficient and meet the requirements. All the staff we came across very well mannered, very polite and humble.

Our initial purpose to vaidyagrama was to accompany our daughter Michelle for nursing therapy course, however due to long hour flight, my wife slip disc problem relapsed and caused her in a much pain. Dr. Ramanandan has attended to her with much care and passion although the treatment was so short she could felt much relief with his pleasant smile and care. Thank you Dr. Ramanandan.

Vaidyagrama is surrounded with peace together with nature. It’s truly a place to recharge and refresh.

Goodbye and we shall be back very soon again at this centre.

Thanks.

Dear vaidyagrama family,

It has been a long and beautiful experience for me. This is the first place I visit in India and you gave me a wonderful impression from your country and your culture and I respect it very much Thank you to my doctors Dr.Ramadas, and the other part of the team Dr.Aruna, Dr.Harikumar. Thank you to my wonderful therapist Bindu and I wish you teach you english.Thanks to Sreelakshmi great massage and Archana cup of coffee in the morning.

Thanks a lot to other therapists of different blocks, especially Kalpana your energy is good and your massage rocks. Thank you very much as well as to the super sweet and smiling cleaning staff and gardener and light man who switch on and off the lights.

Thank you to Hakkim, reception staff, chef Aruna and the boy assistant. Thank you to my father the man who brings cow for  cow pooja. Thank you to Aparna, Kavitha.

Thank you very much to all other doctors, who do satsangs. Dr.Ramamnandan ,Dr.Harikrishnan,Dr.Kesari,Dr.Arsha…You all are very special people. I also would like to express my gratitude and respect to Dr.Ramkumar whose words during satsang are deeply inspiring. Thank you so much for your help, compassion and your patience in answering all our questions

To improve

-Therapists have to speak more English mandatory

-Please don’t talk or laugh or interrupt during treatment

-Ask for music or not during treatment

-Treatment rooms in block 3 needs to be more clean especially bathroom, change mug

-Don’t forget to light candle to lord Dhanwanthiri

-Trainee should wear uniform as well, it’s not right to enter treatment room in the same clothes they wear outside. Even simple and short trainee written on back would be better than nothing.

-More items in the shop done at mandapam.

Replace the items that all finished, new clothes and jewelry will be super.

-Explain clearly method of payment and extra fees.

-Doctors should carry with them a small note book so they don’t forget anything that needs to be changed by patients

-In the therapist office in every treatment room there should be a board in which write clearly for everyone all patient needs and time of medicine and food. In this way nobody forgets anything.   

-Therapists they forgot medicine, once is ok more often is not ok.

-May be you could sell bag with your logo who don’t have space in their luggage.

-In a day there is no satsang instead of video show you could do a lesson on how to make flower necklace, women loves it.

Thank you thank you so much.

Dear Vaidyagrama family,

Vaidyagrama was a great experience. Medicines, therapies may take some time to show results but the immediate impact as we enter vaidyagrama is very pleasing and soothing-the treatment begins here!

The gentle caring approach of the doctors here, smiling faces of the staff members, atmosphere makes you feel at ease. Plants, flowers, chirping birds, the temple all create serene atmosphere.

My sincere thanks to my doctors and therapists and everyone here. Yes, not to forget the satsangs, prayers, cow puja that provides all of us “lawaris” activity, which we look forward to.

Knowledge and insight provided at satsang will remain with us.

It was a different environment which I have never experienced and had a good time. It was some relaxing days for my brother and me. The staff was amazing and very kind. The therapist did a good job and made my trip here worth it. It was a different kind of food we never had, even though the environment was boring our doctors Dr. Ramnanadan and Dr. Harikumar kept us occupied. The accommodation was the best than in any other Ayurveda hospital.

Love and energy cannot be created and destroyed! It only changes and flows. At Vaidyagrama, the art of having the flow of love moving freely is an amazing thing to be a part of.

Vaidyagrama certainly also knows the art of holding space and allowing. In this environment healing can take place.

I am here for the second time and my journey has definitely been amazing.

I am eager to feel how I feel getting out into the real world this time. Excited to experience my ongoing journey and curious as to when I will next be back. My Faith in Ayurveda, my doctors, vaidyagrama and something even bigger grows.

All my love

Thank you
