Wellness through Ayurved, Yogasana and Mantra

Er. Rajesh Pathak

‘During Covid I continued to chant ‘Shriram raksha strot’. This was felt as a strong safeguard, and still today I regularly chant it. For mental health the power of mantra has always come out to be very effective.’  Sharing her views on Yoga and Ayurveda, this Dr Tanuja  Nesri , Director of Akhil Bhartiya Ayurveda Sansthan, said. She further adds, the episode of Lakshman-Hanuman and Sanjivni booti narrates that the remedy of even so-called incurable ailment is there in the nature. Thus, Ramayana also establish the significance of Ayurveda.
India accounts for more than half of the herbs produced in the world over. But attention in real sense toward this was paid for the first time only when in the year 2000 a separate national policy was drafted under Atal Bihai Bajpai led NDA government for the Indian medical therapies. Under which unprecedented work of bringing Ayurveda and other indigenous therapies under the category of   Harit uddhog [Green organic-industry] was done.  And then only National Medicinal Plant Board grew conscious about the chalking out specific policy for the conservation and breeding of  Aanwla,  Chandan[sandalwood], Ashwagandha and such others herbs and plants to be used in  Ayurveda. And it is only during Atal’s government   that the   first  ‘Global Ayurveda and Herbal Fare’ was organised , which made the world medical fraternity know what  an unique asset of its own India has to offer them. In the event  2500 representatives of 50 countries including USA, Switzerland, South Africa, Denmark, Canada took the participation.
In Ayurveda balanced consideration for both physical and spiritual aspect of human life is made. With the healthy body, the control over the mind and spiritual consciousness is, therefore, taken care of in that. And that’s why Yogasanas are seen to be ingrained with Ayurveda. This only is the integrated approach to the wellness that Ayurveda is known for.  Vegetarianism has great role to play in gaining immunity, which   Ayurveda integrated in its way of treatment prominently. On the other hand the world now is no longer unaware of the property of enhancing immunity consists in Giloy, Shatavari, Ashwagandha, Tulsi, Kali Mirch such other herbs to be used in Ayurveda. And therefore such a boost in the export of Ayurveda medicines is there to see. Today in around 90 countries that the people have started   adopting Ayurveda treatment for the health care. In recent time the export of Ayurveda products worldwide has increased to 45%, which is enough to understand that how extent world showed its trust on Ayurveda.  Behind the making of Ayurveda globally popular the role of NDA government will always be appreciated. When Narendra Modi came to hold the post of PM, Ayurveda got separate Ayush ministry. Where ever Modi went in the world he struck deal for the promotion of Indian traditional medicines. Besides he initiated Ayush call centres in Indian embassies. All this efforts collectively brought the day when in the year 2021 WHO recognised India being the ‘Centre for Global-Wellness’.
