Medicine evolved since the day living being learned to avoid the instinct of pain. The knowledge of healing through medicine has come down as an eternal tradition. The tradition, incorporating all contemporary wisdom regarding health care, was continued for three thousand and five hundred years in the same way. Till the first half of last century Ayurveda remained mainstream life care in India. But now we are lagging behind. NASYA has been formed to regain that spirit among Ayurveda students and youth in all three levels namely classical study, clinical practice and research and thereby to restore the Ayurveda culture in India in true sense.” Vd.
