Ayurvedic scholars receive National Ayurved Award

President Ram Nath Kovind recently presented the Pt Ramnarayan Sharma National Ayurved Award instituted by Baidyanath founder for the years 2008-2014 to seven eminent Ayurvedic scholars at Rashtrapati Bhavan.

Speaking on the occasion, the President said that Ayurveda is a holistic medical system for healthy living. It takes an integrated approach to the physical, mental, spiritual and social aspects of the human body, and their inter-linkages.

He said 90% of the country's medicinal plants and herbs are obtained from forests, and that people should be sensitive to the protection of medicinal plants and herbs.

The Pt Ramnarayan Sharma National Award was instituted by the Ramnarayan Vaidya Ayurved Research Trust in 1982. It honours an eminent Ayurvedic scholar every year. The Award consists of a cash prize of Rs 2 lakh, a silver idol of Lord Dhanwantari and a citation.
