Sampradaya Bhajan Performance by Kadayanallur Rajagopal and Team was successfully conducted by Samskriti at Amrita School of Ayurveda on 29 October 2015. Sampradaya Bhajan is the traditional form of bhajans (devotional songs in praise of God and his Divine love) in South India. "Sampradaya" means a tradition which is handed down by one's ancestors. It is the collection of Kirtanas (songs) and Namavalis (songs composed of names of Hindu gods like Lord Rama, Lord Krishna, etc.) in a specific order. Even though singing the Lord's name without following any order of performance will suffice, systematic performance will always benefit. That’s why Kadayanallur Rajagopal has been devoting his life to spread the Power of Nama of Almighty through his Namasankeerthanams. He is well versed in all the modes of Sampradaya Bhajan. His way of performing bhajans, which attracts not only the aged, but also the young generation, creates a conducive atmosphere in reaching God.

Navaratri was extensively celebrated at Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Amritapuri campus from 14 to 23 October, 2015.   Navaratri is not only significant for spiritual aspirants. It has a message for those who lead a worldly life as well. We can invoke Durga’s help to surmount obstacles in our lives, pray to Lakshmi to bestow peace and prosperity, and contemplate upon Saraswati in order to gain knowledge. These three ingredients are necessary for a full and complete worldly life. In reality, when we pray with devotion and proper attitude, we are invoking Shakti, the creative life of Feminine Divinity that is within each one of us. Feminine Divinity has numerous manifestations of Goddesses, including Durga, Lakshmi and Saraswati.Therefore, during this festive period, our main building lobby temple was beautifully decorated with Bhommakkulu and Kali idol, creating an auspicious ambience charged with pure  .   The whole celebration was started with Ganapathihoma on the morning of 14 October. Then each department organized puja, Lalitha Sahasranama Archana chanting, bhajans, etc., on each day during this ten-day festival.

Here’s some highlights from the issue. Samvit this time lights up the different faces of the socio-cultural life in India. “A nation without a cultural heritage is like an orphan who has nothing to feed upon” said Emerson once. If we go upon this idea, then India would be a child born with a silver spoon in its mouth and a huge family to support her.

Director's Message

Ayurveda is the science of life where the knowledge of both Hita and Ahita Ayu, Sukha and Dukha Ayu, wholesome and unwholesome things in relation to life and the Pramana of life are explained.

The doctrine of Ayurveda is not exactly meant only for the medical practitioners. Its principles and practices can be learnt even from the peasants also. Our Grandmothers and cowherds knew the uses of many drugs for common problems, simple formulations, healthy food preparations and many more such things which were according to the principles of Ayurveda. Slowly we see that such knowledge and practices are declining from the society and even though we think that we are protecting the science. But in reality seldom we remember that it is the same science which has given us material prosperity and self respect including health. So we all have a duty toward Ayurveda which has provided everything to us we need.

Ayurveda, the great tradition has been kept alive by the great and selfless Vaidyas of past. Most of them lived a very simple and traditional life envisaged in the scriptures. Through their words and action they could inspire people around them to practice Ayurveda... »»
