The attention of the Ayurveda world turned to Bad Ems, Germany, this year. The occasion was the 25th anniversary of the Maharishi AyurVeda Health Centre, celebrated with more than 200 invited guests in Häcker's Grand Hotel.
Praise from renowned guests
During its 300-year history, the historic building—recently restored elaborately—had already accommodated emperors and Russian tsars, along with celebrities like Goethe. For 25 years, Lothar Pirc and Dr. Karin Pirc have run the Ayurvedic clinic in Bad Ems, drawing people in search of health and rejuvenation from all over the world.
Political leaders and renowned Ayurveda representatives attended the anniversary celebration, and praised the Health Centre and Ayurveda. Many guests of honour also expressed their desire for greater popularity of Ayurvedic medicine in Germany, including the Indian Consul General Pratibha Parkar, who called for greater support from health insurance companies, so that more people could benefit from Ayurveda.

Dr. med. Ulrich Bauhofer, President of the German Ayurveda Society, during his ceremonial address
The president of the German Ayurveda Society, dr. med. Ulrich Bauhofer, M.D., in his ceremonial address called for greater recognition of Ayurveda and referred to the opportunities for health and society: ''This is the knowledge of the laws of life, the knowledge of what is beneficial for us,'' he said. ''The aim is always to maintain physical and mental balance through effective prevention and holistic therapy, in order to age in sound health.''
Dr. Karin Pirc, Medical Director of the Maharishi Ayurveda Health Centre - Bad Ems, also emphasized Ayurveda's immense potential for prevention and cure: ''With the help of Ayurvedic pulse diagnosis, illnesses can be diagnosed much earlier than with the means available to conventional medicine.''
The Health Centre's successful road to 25,000 guests
The benefits of Ayurveda were described by television presenter Nandini Mitra, who, like other celebrities, is a steady guest at the spa clinic and a fan of Ayurveda. With charm and humour, she led the guests through a successful evening, with a mix of songs from the local choir, classical music, and cabaret interludes.
During the podium talk, Ms. Mitra encouraged the hosts to talk about many interesting details from the history of the Health Centre. Over 25 years, some 25,000 guests have traveled to Bad Ems to experience top-level Ayurveda right in the middle of Germany.
For the spa town of Bad Ems, the Ayurveda clinic has also proved to be a real blessing: ''They have brought guests here from distant lands,'' Mayor Berny Abt said during his address. In times when numerous spa clinics in Germany had to close their doors, by maintaining first-class quality Lothar and Karin Pirc made [the Maharishi Ayurveda Health Centre] into what it is today: Europe's leading private clinic for Ayurvedic treatments.
Internationally known and awarded
High-level international awards have helped to carry the Health Centre's excellent reputation to distant countries. One that stands out among these is the ''Best Ayurveda Physician 2006'' title awarded to Dr. Karin Pirc, the first woman and the first European to receive such honours. The clinic's fame in Russia was enhanced significantly by the ''Gold Medal for Honour and Good'' awarded to Lothar Pirc by the Russian Foundation ''Patrons of the Century''.
Congratulations from all over the world on the 25th anniversary attested to the great international renown and recognition of the Health Centre.
Lothar and Dr. Karin Pirc will continue their commitment to the expansion and recognition of Ayurvedic medicine, together with son Aurel Christ, including research studies to document the Health Centre's results.
