Traditional Natural Remedies from India and Europe
Exploring a 340-Year Relationship between Netherlands and India
Brahmachari Girish Momaya speaks about the genesis of the Congress.
The International Maharishi AyurVeda Foundation, The Netherlands; the All India Ayurvedic Congress, New Delhi; and the International Academy of Ayurveda, Pune organized the 4th International Ayurveda Congress on Traditional Natural Remedies from India and Europe held on 1 and 2 September 2018 at Leiden, The Netherlands. During the congress, the scientific approach of Ayurveda as a prevention-oriented healthcare system was presented, too.
The Congress took its inspiration from an epic 17th century Dutch treatise on medicinal plants of the Western Ghats of South India called Hortus Malabaricus. The inspiration is to connect India, The Netherlands, and Europe through their rich botanical heritage and, at the same time, present the therapeutic potential of plants and the natural approaches to health available in Ayurveda and in traditional remedies from Europe. During the congress Ayurvedic scholars from different countries presented the scientific approach of Ayurveda as a prevention-oriented healthcare system.
The Congress was held in a beautiful setting of historical town of Leiden having centuries old scenic Dutch water canals, one of Europe’s oldest botanical garden and a major Dutch University and library. The conference venue is one of the main conference centre cum hotel in Leiden, Holiday Inn Leiden, a four-star hotel equipped with International conference facilities and dignified halls for the purpose, including dining and exhibition space. The venue is about 20 minutes driving distance from Amsterdam Schiphol airport and Den Haag.
