The Journey of Arya Vaidhya Sala


My traditional family did not possess an Ayurvedic institution. But my father was intensely associated with the activities of the esteemed Ayurvedic Institution of The Arya Vaidya Sala, Kottakkal, from 1932 to 1988. He was the Chief Physician of the Kottakkal Arya Vaidya Sala’s Ayurvedic Hospital, which was a pioneer Ayurvedic Hospital in Kerala.

Torch Bearer

I feel proud and fortunate to be an Ayurvedic Physician. I bow before Lord Dhanwanthari for enabling me to work as an Ayurvedic Physician in association with The Arya Vaidya Sala, Kottakkal, for the last 44 years.

Your inspiration to choose Ayurveda

I developed passionate respect towards Ayurvedic physicians, by continuously witnessing the practice of my father and maternal uncle. My father also advised me. So, I became an Ayurvedic Physician.
