OCT 7, 2011: INAUGURATION SRI SRI AYURVEDA HOSPITAL
Jai Guru Dev. 7th of October was a very auspicious occasion & is going to be a very memorable one in the history of SSCASR as it was the inauguration day of its new hospital premises, a highly specialized Ayurvedic hospital on the outskirts of Bengaluru near the Art of Living International Campus.
The inauguration took place in the divine presence of H.H. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Guruji& many dignitaries from within & outside the state graced the occasion. The chief guests were Shri S.A. Ramadas, Honorable Minister for Medical Education, Karnataka; ShriThiruSwamiji, Director, ISCKON; Shri R.V. Deshpande, KPCC President &VaidyaRaghunandansharma, CCIM President. Among many other dignitaries who graced the occasion were noted film actress Jayanthi, noted Ayurvedic cancer specialist VaidyaBalenduPrakash, SwamyPrajnanandMaharajji& distinguished guests from across the country.
After shilanyasa anavarana – unveiling the stone & inauguration of the hospital, Guruji along with the dignitaries arrived at the Vishalakshi Mantap wherein our beloved Guruji spoke on” Ayurveda – The ancient treasure for global health”. & put Bengaluru on the Global map not only as the Silicon city & Garden city of India but also as the city of Ayurveda.
This event also marked the release of CD of “Parenting the Angels” – a session organized by SSRVM Trust on 7th June 2010, where our dear Guruji addressed the audience about modern day parenting & told that Parenting is a two way journey – Teaching as well as Learning.
Dhvani – an album of Bhajans sung by our college students was also released on this occasion which made the event all the more memorable.
Our institution has a tradition of recognizing the services of senior physicians in the field of Ayurveda & this year, on this day, Vaidya Balendu Prakash , a renowned Ayurvedic physician , was felicitated.
This event also marked the launch of our official website (through which you are reading this newsletter) by none other than our beloved Guruji, H.H. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar ji.
The entire event was the realization of a long cherished dream of every SriSriyite. Just like an young larvae which metamorphoses into a beautiful butterfly & a beautiful bud blossoms into an ethereal flower, so also SSCASR & the attached hospital from its budding stage in the year 2004 has blossomed into a flower of dreams in 2011, the credit for which goes to the incessant effort, devotion & passion of every individual directly or indirectly associated with the institution.
