    Recommendation Letter

    It is my great joy to continue to work with my mentor and friend Vaidya Hemant Gupta developing the nation’s first Masters degree in Ayurveda, by an accredited university. Vaidya Gupta has been leading the development of this historic degree program for nearly 5 years.

    It is rare to find a scholar who can penetrate deeply into the ancient texts, and apply the timeless principles of Ayurveda to modern life, based on clinical experience. It is even rare, perhaps, to find such a scholar who is also a consummate teacher, who can explain the principles, the examples, the applications, and the importance of this knowledge clearly and concisely to his students.

    The physician is one of the four pillars of health in Ayurveda. The physician must be knowledgeable, skillful and dexterous, experienced, and pure of heart. In Vaidya Gupta, we have all of these beautiful qualities manifest. As a result, his students are inspired and become capable practitioners of this timeless wisdom, capable of removing suffering and bringing increased balance and vitality to their clients.

    And even rare, in Vaidya Gupta, we have a master of Maharishi AyurVeda, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s revival of the complete science of Ayurveda including the all-important knowledge of consciousness, Atma, the Self of everyone, as the basis of health. The word for health in Ayurveda is Swastha, which means ‘Established in the Self.’ Maharishi restored the foundation of health as the regular experience of pure consciousness, the simplest form of human awareness, Atma, which is a state of perfectly balanced mind, which spontaneously brings balance to the body. This experience is easily gained through Maharishi’s Transcendental Meditation program, which is enjoyable, natural, and practiced by over 6 million people around the world.

    Vaidya Gupta is indeed a rare person, a rare teacher, and a treasured member of our faculty at the Maharishi University of Management.

    P.S. Vaidya Gupta has full permission to use this comment in any way he feels useful
