“This is the description of Longevity Chapter with distinction.”
As preached and told by the great sage Atreya.”
(Charaka Samhita, Sutra Section, Ch. 1-2, Longevity)
Panchakarma is an ancient ayurvedic practice that has been much fooled and used abusively , even in India. Panchakarma is not only oily massage or shirodara. It doesn’t have to be done for a full month in a 5-star hotel, neither can it be done in 5 days, and it’s not a “hype/hippy/New Age detox”. It is a serious procedure that aims to promote Longevity. Panchakarma can be either preventive or curative and consists of a set of five treatments. Ayurveda is a system of health that has been proved efficient for more than 3000 years.
It is very difficult to find serious and rightly trained ayurvedic masters nowadays.
Our team know and experienced individually real panchakarma treatments in India, but there are rare, difficult to find and far away – not mentioning the sometimes very precary premises…
Today Yogi Manmoyanand has agreed and granted us the priviledge to run 10-days programmes in Switzerland, an easy and safe location.
Panchakarma consists in five detoxifying techniques, but none of us need all the five to be done. That’s why the program will be individually set up on the first day of our event, after private meeting and assessment by Yogi Manmoyanand.
Dhanvantari, also spelled Dhanwantari, in Hindu mythology, the physician of the gods. According to legend, the gods and the demons sought the elixir amrita by churning the milky ocean, and Dhanvantari rose out of the waters bearing a cup filled with the elixir. The Ayurveda, a traditional system of medicine, is also attributed to him. The name has also been applied to other semilegendary and historical physicians and to a legendary king.
