Great happiness to know that there is a place like Vaidyagrama. Hosting the traditions at best and uses the good of modern tools for the preservation and maintenance of ecology. By integrating the parts completely- in space and time-the people, the place.

Heartfelt thanks to all the intense care and attention

To Vaidyagrama staff and doctors,

You all have made a world of difference in my life by welcoming me into your space and caring for me with love and attention like I have never experienced before in life. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart. I want to especially thank Dr. Ramanandan and Dr. Harikumar for the intuitive treatment and advice. I want to thank my therapist, Reshma for being a wonderful friend and most of all a very good human being. I also want to thank the support team of therapists. Devaki, Reshma Jr. and Geethu for taking such good care of me. This was much needed break in my life and I am filled with gratitude and good positive thoughts as I leave from here today. I wish everyone all the best, hope and pray that the wellness continues in Vaidyagrama.

With all the love under the Sun and over it!

Dear Beloved friends of Vaidyagrama,

How can I ever thank you for so much love, care, respect, healing, inspiration and more!

You bring a dance to my heart and a song to my soul.

I am touched and impressed to see how much you have grown and developed since I was here last (3 years ago). This community seems to have all the right ingredients needed. You are simple, ethical and charismatic and loving, all held together in a beautiful spiritual life and practice.

I really bow down to you! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making it possible for me to have a silent retreat in a silent environment. I know you all made a huge effort to make my stay.

I can’t imagine a better place for healing than this one.

Om shanti. Be Well.

PS. Some suggestions-

It would be so wonderful if someone could make a little movie on Vaidyagrama and its history. It could be shown in Mandapam but also on the Web and generate support and money

In order to get more attention energy for the different projects that ‘patients’ can contribute to, I think it would be great to have a sheet with all the information on it.

Not to be put in the bag (it might turn people off when they get it at the start) but to be given a few days before leaving.

I cannot thank everyone that helps run this holy place enough! I have learned so much about my health by simply being here amongst the doctors and patients. The healing that goes on here is profound, thank you for all that you do. I came here in June for a short visit and knew I needed to come back for a longer one. I am so glad I did! I feel so healthy and vibrant and ready to go back home and do what needs to be done. I shall do my best to keep up as many of the healing practices as I am able to maintain this feeling.

Thank you for everything you do

I am so glad I have come here and met all of you. Please continue to be as you are!!

The place is very calm and in a serene atmosphere. I like the silence very much. Doctors are very friendly and the helpers are also moving in a nice way.

The treatment that is given is excellent and I found very good improvement in my health.

Thank you very much for the love and care taken by you during my stay here.

Dear Vaidyagrama family,

Thank you all very much. Vaidyagrama is one of the Paradise existing in the real world. And very preciously!

I loved being here so much because Vaidyagrama is circulating by good karma by each doctor, therapist, housekeepers, gardeners and patients. I really recognized that I was so lucky to have breast cancer to see the beauty of lives.

For the second visit this time, I had very confidence and faith in Ayurveda (in VG way) as doctor Ramdas told me, “people are close to the God when people have disease”. I am healthy now, cancer free after 1st visit, however I am still closer to the Gods!

I could spend time here for spiritual growth by my physical, mental detox and nourishment. I could enjoy sharing VG experience with Badari ji who is lucky and on the ‘right’ way of life road.

Through doctors, therapists, patients, gardeners I touched by purest souls and Mother. Nature is always supporting us with unconditional love.

I admire the way of living at Vaidyagrama.

I’ll try to keep habits here even in the city jungle and keep on practicing what I learn from Vadiyagrama.

Hope I could come back with my husband to share this beautiful Vadiyagrama

Big thanks for all your smiles and kindness!

Thanks for the hospitality J

For me, you’re the best Ayurveda place that I know (and I know quite a lot!)

Last time we were here for treatment I wrote: “keep it up” and I see now you kept it with same spirit.  So keep it up!

You are travelling tomorrow with us in our hearts to Germany.

To the Vaidyagrama family,

It was truly a fascinating experience.  Our family had a great stay and to make it more memorable it was the treatment from the staff and the doctors.

As this family is committed to serve. That made our stay more lively and a memory for lifetime.

Long live, Vaidyagrama!

Thank you doctor for all the support and patience,

To everyone at Vaidyagrama,

Our stay here was very short (only 3 days) but within such a short time, it was wonderful to have experienced such great warmth and hospitality from every single person here,

After having travelled to many places in the world, there is something to be said about the genuine simplicity of this place and its people. It is very clear right from the start that no interaction here is transactional and unthoughtful. On the contrary, there is a heartfelt genuine feeling behind every gesture and every spoken word (despite the minor language barrier).

Our doctors-Dr. Ramanandan and Dr. Harikumar were excellent, devoted and empathetic. Our therapists, Shashikala and Sajit were absolutely fantastic too. Overall with this short yet memorable experience, we will certainly be visiting again for a longer period of time as well as highly recommending Vaidyagrama to lots of friends and family.

Thank you,

Incredible! In every way - people, place, space, culture and environment.

Love the people for the love they have given us over this short period of time. Selfless love with no expectations was showered on us! Doctors, therapists and all other staff members love them and would like to express our sincerest gratitude for the professionalism and service accorded us!

Love the grounds- beautiful, lush and green; unsurpassable, serenity with matching culture.

Can’t thank you all for the wonderful stay we have had and hope to return some day again!

Thank you for the treatments and the possibility to stay in such a peaceful place.

I’ll miss the everyday talks to the doctors and treatments of the therapists. Now I’ll be leaving. In a way happy getting home and in a way sad because it’s over.

 The beginning was hard. I’ll also miss the nature around. I’ll take with me all I liked in my heart and mind.

All the best!!

Much gratitude to the many people here who took good care of me, especially my doctor. It is a good place to come for healing and reflection and I know I will benefit from this experience in ways and cannot yet see, just as I did after last summer time here.

Vaidyagrama, all the people associated with you are an asset to our society. The nourishment, compassion, generosity you share is a wonderful gift, which I have been privileged to experience in this serene place.

I take with me a sweet gift from you- a recharged feeling of love, acceptance for myself. Thank You!

I would appreciate also your developed awareness for the other mammals who share this eco-system- then they too can share this space with good health and joy- the cats’.

My 15 days stay in this wonderful eco friendly Vaidyagrama have me very rice experience. Treatment here is excellent.

All the staff members are dedicated. They all know what they are doing.

Doctor’s approach is very friendly here. Vaidyagrama is really a beautiful place for healing. I feel very happy to have come here for treatment.

Thank you Vaidyagrama.

My sincere thanks to doctors and therapists,

Vaidyagrama- Love, health, happiness everything is included in the vaidyagrama. The moment I reached Vaidyagrama I could feel the spiritual energy around me. The spiritual energy is reflecting in each person working here. Doctors are treating the patient through mind and body and giving them right solution. Doctors have forgotten their homes and staying in Vaidyagrama for their true service. I am thanking from the bottom of my heart for treating me so well.

 Thank you,

I had a really relaxing and wonderful time at Vaidyagrama. I enjoyed the lifestyle with prayers in the morning, sattvic food, friendly staff and knowledgeable doctors. I looked forward to the satsang with the doctors, to know more about Ayurveda, as I am currently a student pursuing alternate medicine. My Abhyangam treatment relaxed me completely. The only difficulty I experienced was to communicate with my family who were spread out and were anxious about me staying alone here.

My suggestions to make this experience even more enjoyable are-

Have more activities (hands on) like; Gardening, Craft, Cooking etc. because with no TV or Wi-Fi it is a challenge to keep one occupies (for those who are alone and able to exert).

Group dinner was great. I made a few friends. May be have socializing time with tea in the evening, so that ‘patients’ can get to know their neighbours/co-patients, if they want to.

Otherwise it is a well thought out and serene environment suitable for healing.

I will miss my chats with the front desk staff J

Good luck in promoting Ayurveda and healing patients with Ayurveda.

This was my second visit to Vaidyagrama. It was a short visit but sweet one. I wish that I could have stayed longer. It was a serene place and reminds me of true countryside and represents something that India genuinely offers to the whole world. Here, it is a great team of doctors and great service. I would like to thank Aparna for accommodating this visit on a short notice. My sincere thanks Dr. Ramanandan, Dr. Harikumar and Dr. Ramadas for their care during my stay. I will be looking forward to my next visit.

Thanks a lot,
