Further, addressing the CME participants, he said, “I thank the Ministry of AYUSH for continuing this initiative and congratulate AIIA and RAV for organising such a grand programme efficiently. It is great to see that hands-on training on the latest technological tools was being provided to the participants, and scientific sessions of Panchakarma procedures and field visits have been organised for their benefit. All this, combined with the various enlightening sessions on immunology, environment, health, therapeutic yoga and basic medical statistics, will surely raise the status of Ayurvedic studies in India.” He motivated the participants by sharing insights on how Ayurveda has now gained global acceptance and what it means for students pursuing Ayurveda study.
