“To save humanity, the world must return to yoga, ayurveda, naturopathy and Indian culture,” said yoga guru Baba Ramdev.
Speaking at the seminar “Modernization of Indian Traditional Medicine: Industrial Perspectives” at Patanjali University, Ramdev said that young people today suffer from so many diseases, mainly due to their lifestyle, ingestion of chemicals and reckless consumption of allopathic medicines. “If we don’t turn to yoga, ayurveda and naturopathy, we will have to pay a heavy price in the coming days,” he said.
Criticizing allopathy and its concepts, Ramdev said, “Modern science is in its infancy and does not know how to cure diseases because of which it makes major mistakes, such as the concept of targeted medicine, which is a crime, and is violence and cruelty against humanity.”
“Now the time has come for us to return to yoga, ayurveda and naturopathy. In the future, allopathy will be limited to minor surgeries,” he asserted.
According to him, at Patanjali Yogpeeth, patients with life-threatening diseases such as liver psoriasis, type 1 diabetes were completely cured. More than 3,000 patients with diseases ranging from cancer to liver psoriasis were currently undergoing treatment at Patanjali Yogpeeth, which is the highest in the country, Ramdev said.
Addressing the gathering, Patanjali Ayurved Chairman Acharya Balkrishna, who was also present, announced that Patanjali was working to promote organic farming and reduce the use of chemical fertilizers in agriculture.
About 40,000 farmers have already been trained in organic farming by Patanjali and 80% of them have already started organic farming successfully. “We did several researches on organic farming and we succeeded,” Balkrishna said.
He also informed the assembly that in Patanjali they also compiled a medicinal encyclopedia, where more than 60,000 medicinal plants are described.
During the three-day conference, Baba Ramdev and Acharya Balkrishna received the Maharishi Shushurth and Maharishi Vagbhata awards respectively.
