Several experts in Maharishi Ayur-Veda* health care were invited to speak at the RajAyuCon, an international Ayurveda conference held earlier this year in Gujarat, India. One very distinguished speaker was Dr Girish Momaya, Director of Maharishi Vedic University, Netherlands.
Dr Momaya gave a keynote address about the profound effect that Maharishi Mahesh Yogi has had on the field of Ayurveda in the last 50-60 years. He described Maharishi's immeasurable contributions to the rise of Ayurveda in the world, and to creating a disease-free society through his Vedic Science and Consciousness-Based technologies.
Reporting recently about the RajAyuCon, Lothar Pirc, Founder and Managing Director, Maharishi Ayurveda Health Centre Bad Ems, Germany, and General Secretary of EURAMA (European Ayurveda Medical Association), described how Dr Momaya's address inspired the large audience of scientists, students, and scholars of Ayurveda from all over India and other countries, as well as Vaidyas (Ayurveda physicians). Mr Pirc also gave an inaugural speech at the conference.
The main objectives of the RajAyuCon are to promote understanding and popularity of Ayurveda to the worldwide medical community as well as to further develop the ancient medical practice. In his speech, Dr Momaya spoke about how Maharishi upheld these goals.
Some of the characteristics of Maharishi Ayur-Veda that Dr Momaya described are that it is:
∙ authentic, effective, and reliable
∙ free from harmful side effects
∙ prevention oriented
∙ capable of creating collective health
∙ universally applicable
∙ easy to implement.
Dr Momaya explained the basis for the new awakening of Ayurveda brought about by Maharishi in the knowledge and direct experience of the unified field of all the laws of nature—the foundation of both consciousness and physiology, and of the individual and collective social health effects.
Maharishi inspired a substantial scientific research effort on Maharishi Ayur-Veda, and Maharishi's organization has trained thousands of doctors in the health care system.
Maharishi's world plan for perfect health includes bringing self-sufficiency in healthcare to every nation through education, research, training, compiling materia medica from each country, the cultivation of medicinal plants and herbal gardens, implementing prevention programmes, as well as establishing Ayurvedic pharmacies. Maharishi also introduced Maharishi Ayur-Veda clinics around the world.
Dr Momaya quoted Maharishi on the broadest application of the complete and authentic practice of Ayurveda:
'Through the introduction of Ayur-Veda, it is completely within the ability of any sovereign government to bring fulfilment to its aspiration to provide perfect healthcare for the whole population and, on the basis of perfect health, to eliminate all the problems of the nation and perpetuate the sunshine of the age of enlightenment.'
After Dr Momaya's speech, Mr Pirc said, 'Many professors came to us . . . and they said they had worked previously with Maharishi and they were so touched to see the progress of [his organization] around the world.'

* Ayurveda is the world's oldest and most comprehensive system of natural health care, which originated in the Vedic civilization of ancient India and is recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) as an effective health science. Maharishi Ayur-Veda represents the modern restoration by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi of the complete and authentic practice of Ayurveda as recorded in the Vedic texts.
