  4. 4. 4 Background Ayurveda believes that our body is made up of five elements (Panchabhutas). When joined in different combinations, they make up the three “doshas” or “biological modes” which are the “Prakruti” or nature of an individual and all things. As long as these three Doshas, namely Vata (air & space- “Wind”), Pitta (fire & water- “bile”) and Kapha (water & earth- “phlegm”), are balanced, we enjoy perfect health. Ayurvedic theory asserts that every human possesses a unique combination of doshas that define a person’s temperament and characteristics. Each person has a natural system state, an innate combination of the three elements, and she should seek balance by structuring her behavior or environment to infuse more of the element(s) she lacks. Ancient Indian books tell us that people used to live long and healthy lives spanning two hundred years. The modern medicine also reflects the importance of Ayurveda in its base which is obtained from the ancient texts and scriptures on which Ayurveda is based. And following ancient texts and scriptures, the Vedas are of prime significance in the context in which the entire science of life had been created and gathered, more than five thousand years ago. The Event The methods and specifications of Ayurveda, which is a highly detailed science of life, are complex for the masses to connect with easily. Taking this into consideration, “Vibrant Gujarat National Ayurveda Summit- 2014” was organized by ‘Health and Family Welfare Department’ of Government of Gujarat with an intent to clear the fog surrounding Ayurveda and make it more easily accessible and explorable. Ayurveda is believed to be the basis of all medical sciences and is a precious treasure of Indian history. Yet it has not achieved the status it deserves, and least of all in India. The basis of this summit and expo was to revive Ayurveda by changing perception of people towards Ayurvedic practices. The event was also aimed at reviving the work patterns of the Ayurveda industry in India, such as improving its marketing practices, global branding of Ayurveda, etc. The first of its kind, one-day event witnessed academicians, practitioners, healthcare professionals, students, researchers, manufacturers, international representatives, investors and inventors sharing a common platform to discuss on ‘Enriching Public Health through Ayurveda’. Backed by the involvement and support of major organizations, the event was unique in terms of scale size, content, contributors and participants. Besides facilitating interaction between industry and foreign delegates, the mega event also featured free health check-ups, lectures and counseling by specialists
  5. 5. 5 from Ayurveda, Prakriti Pariksha, Nadi Pariksha and Panchkarma. Overall, the event had a total of eight technical sessions by various experts.

Narendra Modi spoke of how the untapped potential of Ayurveda has significant scope in the future as the concept of holistic healthcare was increasingly being adopted by people across the globe. He stated that along with giving emphasis to the practitioners, an equal focus must be laid on the Ayurveda medicine manufacturers. Speaking on promoting Ayurveda through better application of technology, Shri. Narendra Modi highlighted how branding and packaging of the vast base of Ayurvedic medicines, and the extensive knowledge of Ayurveda, would escalate their demand across the globe and thereby increase our exports. He indicated that India has lot of talent but we need to present it to the world in the most modern manner. He also suggested other ways of promotion, including digitalisation of ancient manuscripts. Shri. Narendra Modi also put forth many ways to promote the use of Ayurveda, some of which included tapping the countries that believe in traditional medicine and engaging them in discussions and affiliating our Ayurvedic colleges with foreign colleges. He stressed that by taking such initiatives at the global level, other countries could be brought under the umbrella of Ayurveda and a corpus fund could be created and used for intensive research in this field.

He also spoke of the vast scope entailed in the practise of Ayurveda and emphasized on the need to understand and value our rich Ayurvedic legacy, instead of doubting its prevalence and effectiveness. He highlighted how the prevalence and preference for Ayurveda will increase only if its practitioners have trust in its effectiveness and only if the patient has enough patience to follow it. He also put forth the example of Mahatma Gandhi’s immense faith in our culture and urged the audience to have faith in the efficacy of Ayurveda.
