The Journey of Charaka Ayurveda Asramam
After completing my BAMS in 1995 from Government Ayurveda Medical college, Guntur, I was strongly determined to start an Ayurveda Vaidya Shala. In 1975-1976, after lot of struggles, I could start one Ayurveda Vaidya Shala, in a small village in Andhra Pradesh. My confidence was boosted with this experience, and I decided to go for Post-graduation (MD in Kaya Chikitsa) from Government Ayurveda Medical college, Hyderabad (Osmania University). I completed my PG during 1977-1980 and again decided to start an Ayurveda Vaidya Shala in Hyderabad. I was struggling financially and hence asked help from other Ayurveda Vaidya colleagues, but none of them showed interest in practicing Ayurveda.
I somehow arranged Rs.300 in those days and took a room for Rs.100 /month and started Charaka Ayurveda Clinic. Almost after 12 years, I decided to convert this clinic into an Asramam dedicated to serve all needy and poor, irrespective of their financial status. I continued to serve people in nearby slums, orphanages, old age home. by conducting Health Awareness programs on the basis of Swastha Vritta principles, promoting healthy lifestyle by following the 3 pillars of healthy living viz. Ahar, Nidra and Brahmacharya / Vyayam. This was done with an aim to create a disease-free community. While all this was in progress, I was also determined to protect the environment by promoting saving of water, usage of eco-friendly bags, use of cow based organic farming.

A Memory that's etched deeply in the journey
During Covid times, we introduced a medicine called Swastha Kada and we treated patients with this Kashayam at Alwarpet Ethiraj Kalyana Mandapam.
