Mind and eye opening experience.

One week of detailed caring/ medicines/ treatment makes me feel rejuvenated. My diabetes readings are excellent with less insulin.

Will plan to come and stay a month.

Thank you to all doctors and staff.

Thank you all for your wonderful hospitality and care given during our stay. All staff were very helpful and it was great to see them do their work with so much commitment and humility.  I feel thoroughly important following the treatments and learnt many new things in regards to Ayurveda and general wellbeing. Though I found the lack of activity a challenge in the beginning, I have now realised how much unnecessary energy I was expending in actions that was not really adding in value to my well- being. It is towards the end of the visit that I feel 7days was too short and I look forward for visiting again for 3 week program. 

Thank you all once again.

Dear Vaidyagrama family,

Hi, I am Sayaka Oka. I was staying in 105, I am teaching Ayurveda and Yoga in Tokyo, JP. My Guruji, Myra Lewin introduced me to this wonderful place and Dr Ramadas. I came here to experience the traditional treatment of Ayurveda, panchakarma. Thank you for being able to learn a lot of Indian tradition such as Pooja, satsang, Ayurvedic food, herbs and to meet various friends!

I really hope to come back to this wonderful home, Vaidyagrama soon. See you again.

Deep gratitude to all at Vaidyagrama, for creating such a peaceful and healing environment.  What a beautiful way to finish my first visit to India. I feel especially nourished by the daily chanting at morning and evening prayers, the wonderful Yoga Nidra classes and visits to nearby Dhanwantari temple. It is also a joy to hear the wind moving through the trees and herbs here and to sleep nestled inside the mosquito net.                                                                                                                                              So many lovely scents and sounds and new friends I will treasure. I feel blessed by my time here and smile to them to all those who will enjoy this space in the months and years to come.

The chief Dr. Ramadas met us and took our medical history and problems. We stayed for 3 weeks. During our stay we were well taken care by the doctors and staffs. We were given treatment which included oil massages. This is something we looked forward and enjoyed it. There were also activities like the satsang by doctors and Vedic talks. All Doctors, Dr. Ramadas, Dr. Sajna, the therapists and helpers were helpful and always performed their duties with a smile.

Vaidyagrama is a beautiful place, with well laid out bungalows, away from the madding crowd. It is idyllic, serene and quiet. Besides Ayurveda treatment, it is good for anyone who wish to have a detox or a retreat. We would say our stay is a celebration and we are on the road to recovery.

Dear Doctors and Staff,

Thank you very much for taking care of my son and me. This was the 2nd time we were here. All the doctors and staff are friendly and caring. We thank you, Dr. Harikumar, Dr. Ardent and Dr. Mini for the great care. Special thanks to Dr. Ardent for taking special care of my son during his ghee treatment. For treating him like a younger brother even when my son gave you stern look.

Even though this time my son did not get as much relief as last time, we have an insight into his illness. Thanks to Dr. Ramkumar for suggesting Astrologer.

Thank you for making last minute accommodation for us Aparnaji.

Thank You,

Being in Vaidyagrama for the fourth time, it was like come back home. It was like a retreat this time. Getting the chance to look at my inner world and, by chanting the prayers and the satsangs, to better understanding of the Hindu approach to the Universe, Hindu philosophy and religion, the connection between the world of Gods, of mankind and of the animals. I felt very well treated again by Dr. Harikrishnan, Dr. Soniya, Dr. Aruna and Dr. Sreeji and the therapists and I am deeply thankful to all of you. I liked the opportunity to get in contact with some of the patients. And I deeply respect the enormous endeavour of Geetha for the people living in the surrounding villages of her and all of you, to feed this hungry old ones and to look after the young ones and giving them the opportunity to go school and get the leaders of tomorrow. I hope to be able to continue this process of new insights. And coming back next year.

Deciding to come to Vaidyagrama was a perfect holiday gift I gave myself, a gift of presence being present with the body and mind.

Thanks to the fabulous team of doctors, therapists and the entire staff who comprehend responsibility, work restlessly, give cheerfully and practice accountability with utmost devotion and respect.

As I celebrate and honour this journey today, I humbly bow with the deepest gratitude to everyone here who has been a part of our healing journey.

We look forward to visiting Vaidyagrama next year.

Thank You all once again for all the care, support and healing energy.

Special thanks to all the doctors who presented during the satsangs. They were informative and very enlighten.

Kudos to entire Vaidyagrama team. We had wonderful time here. This is the best relaxing time for ourself ever had. Serene place, smiling staff, conducive for healing. I think below discussions would make patients in- sync.

What are the initial findings?

What are the treatments?

Benefits of the treatment

What to expect after treatment?

Whole hearted best wishes for future expansions. Thank you all so much for making our stay so pleasant.

Margi and I leave tomorrow. This is our second visit since Feb- Mar 2019 .The morning and evening prayer atmosphere here, physical layout, location away from all hustle/bustle (meaning quiet and no distractions) in addition to care and healing, regular attention to patients attached us back. The environmental awareness and the self-sustaining concepts are at work here- that is an added plus. We must thank Dr. Ramanandan ji, Dr. Vinod ji and the entire staff consisting of all therapists, laundry, housekeeping, IT, reception, accounting and pharmacy.

We wish continued growth to Vaidyagrama as they add new clusters.

Dear all,

Thanks for the kind attention during my Laghu Virechana. I had only 9 days, but the staff and also the doctors were really attentive and caring.

There was a little bit of noise due to the construction of new block but it was understandable.

Hope to come back with more time in the following years.

Thanks

To the Vaidyagrama family,

I don’t have words enough to express my gratitude towards each one of you here be it doctors, therapist, cleaning staff, kitchen staff, for the people in back office and reception.

Truly understood what it means to live a life full of humility, compassion, love, care and devotion and not just praise it.

I’m taking back so many life lessons back with me although my stay here was only eight days.

Lent the most valuable lesson of pulling oneself on the top of priority list and spreading the message of positivity.

I really hope I am able to carry forward some of my learnings is not all as I go back into the real world.

Thank you all once again from the bottom of my heart and hope to see you all again.

Dear Vaidyagrama family,

I have no words to thank all of you for the love, care and warmth that I have received from each and every one of you in these three weeks. There’s been truly overwhelming experience. I am humbled by the dedication of all the therapists.

The time I spent in Pooja every morning and evening was divine. All the satsangs and lectures where full of knowledge, wisdom and life lessons.

Dr Ramadas, and each and every doctors of Vaidyagrama has a healing hands and heart.

Thank you so much for giving me the mental and spiritual peace and strength. The kind of physical and mental peace experienced in last three weeks, I have never experienced before

Every person of Vaidyagrama staff has a positive smile on their faces.

I have learnt so much in this three weeks and I hope to spread some of this positivity within myself and around me.

Thank you for everything and I miss everyone and everything at Vaidyagrama.

Waking up at dawn with the sounds of birds, cows, cats, wind among the trees, leaves, I felt at peace and at home at Vaidyagrama and I am sad to leave. My therapist, lovely, gentle, smart, Vidya and others, served me my kashayam and saluted me with smiling faces always. Doctors took their time with me and I see in their eyes the genuine interest for the things I tell, a sincere effort to get to know me and for sure love. My room cleaning lady Shenbhagam came every morning with buckets of lemon grass smelling cleaning agents and we chatted about this and that as she cleaned my rooms spotless. Oh! I am impressed how everyone communicate in english. I was able to convey my message every time I needed to. I felt loved and cared for here. Dr. Aruna, Dr. Soniya, Dr. Sreeji checked in with me three times a day. Dr. Harikrishnan invoked trust in my heart, not only for ayurveda as a system but to entire humanity because in their efforts and personalities what we, humans were made out of originally goodness and light.

I am leaving with a touch of sadness in my heart as I already feel like part of a big family. But at the same time, I know that I will take them with me their love and care good memories, laughter and healing will travel through space in my heart. Like all families I know they will be there for me in times of need and I will surely come back again.

Much love and many greetings

A place where one is able to rest and reset, listening to the song of unknown birds, the wings of butterflies and heartfelt mornings and entering prayers..

Where there is time for watching the trees grow, the insects meditate or carry on with their duties.

A place where mosquitoes and cockroaches are befriended, as much as frogs and geckos.

Where we are so kindly and dedicatedly taken care of it is almost like being an infant again, in the hands of the grant mother.

With sleep gratitude to an extraordinary team of people, who made us rest and ready to nurture and give it back to the world in due time.

May the spirit of Vaidyagrama remain unspoiled.

Overall, another excellent experience at the healing village. Sure to come back.

Doctors=Excellent

Assistant Doctors=Marvellous

Therapists=Attentive & Gentle

Housekeeping=Absolute pristine cleanliness

Floor staff=Very friendly and attentive

Suggestions

1. Music in therapy needs to be toned down. Whole complex starts buzzing with unnecessary "noise".

2. Quality of music could improve. Not all flutes and chanting are pleasant to ears.

3. Some of the guest are no help either in terms of noise.

My very best to the entire Punarnava/Vaidyagrama family in sustaining this noble initiative. May the spirit of it continue and be blessed by the benevolent deities.

Jai Sri Ram!!

Dear Vaidyagrama Family,

It has been such a blessing and a privilege to have spent 21 days in a very special healing village amongst a team that makes us all feel special and loved. This is a place where people are happy. I loved the morning and evening prayers and the satsangs were truly educational and inspiring. I enjoyed the food and it was always a happy moment when the food would arrive.

It was wonderful to learn more about the history and philosophy of VG. I was very touched to hear about how you are not only looking after patients but also the wider community. This place feels very special and sacred. The purity of heart and authenticity runs very deep here.

I would also like to extend a special thanks to Dr. Ramadas, for his devotion not only to his patients but also to the prayers and satsangs.

And of course a big thank you to the Doctors, office staff, therapists, cooks, cleaners and everyone who contributes to making VG the special place it is. I will definitely be back.

I thank you Dr. Sajna for your warmth and dedication.

Vaidyagrama is a right place for those who need of Ayurvedic treatment to improve their health system. I wish to thank Dr. Harikrishnan and team for the dedicated service provided to me and my sister during the treatment days. I highly appreciate the team of therapist crew who did their best for the treatment, as well as the serving of medicines and food in timely manner.

Finally I am very much thankful to the founders Of Vaidyagrama choosing their region in Tamilnadu and it is really a gift to the State of Tamilnadu as most of the Ayurvedic centres are in the state of Kerala. Vaidyagrama is a crown for this region.

My special thanks to Dr. Ardent who share his ideas and given me tips of Ayurvedic treatments

As my wife Lakshmi and I leave Vaidyagrama after a 2 weeks stay. Happily it has been a very satisfying experience and of course deep from Kerala, we felt at home speaking in Malayalam which itself give us a feeling of kinship. The accommodation facilities were comfortable and functions without an air conditioning unit. You are in the various treatments prescribed for you from morning to evening. In particular, the doctors took special particular care and attend to promptly to your every query. The environment was indeed natural. Chanting and the architecture merged well with it. All in all, we enjoyed thoroughly our experience and we look forward to coming back soon. Hope the centre gets to be more popular and many others will benefit from it.
