The philosophy, concepts & practical utility of AYUSH systems in Bharatha stands unchallenged even today despite the great advancements by leaps & bounds in medical sciences & technology.
Unfortunately, the philosophy and concepts, studied and practiced since time immemorial is still under utilized or not properly recognized particularly in the realms of Public health and Primary health care in Bharata. The immortal philosophy , time tested concepts and unchallenged principles of Ayurveda and other Bharatheeya sastras are relevant and can be practiced in any part of the world as they are governed by universal principles in tune with Nature, utilizing locally specific resources. Hence the theory and practice of particularly Ayurveda and Yoga have great role to play in achieving Sustainable Development Goals ( SDG) through Universal Health Coverage. It is in this context, when the whole world is suffering from innumerable life style diseases and mental problems, AYUSH systems particularly Ayurveda and Yoga can help and need to be practiced in every nation in the world as they are holistic.
Following the philosophy of "lokah samastha sukhino bhavantu" , Jignasa thrives to inculcate unrelentedly the deep rooted wisdom of Bharatheeya Sastras and its practice to every medical student in Bharatha and abroad. Through authentic learning and practice, Jignasa aims to instill conviction, confidence and practical skills in every budding medical student and practitioner. The immortal Bharatheeya sastras particularly Ayurveda are relevant even today, to address the health and climate challenges facing Nature and its inhabitants as a whole in today's turbulent world.
For the realisation of 'Ayushman Bharath' the mantra for Public health is 'स्वास्थ्यस्य स्वास्थ्य रक्षणम्, व्याधितस्य परिमोक्षणम् |' Sincere efforts are required from the AYUSH community to achieve Universal health coverage for a healthy world.
