On the occasion of the eighth Ayurveda Day, Union Ayush Minister Sarbananda Sonowal on Friday said that Ayurveda is like a boon in this era of nuclear power, pesticides, and a toxic environment. With continuous efforts, the Ministry of Ayush has established more than eight thousand wellness centres across the country.
To further strengthen the service delivery of the Ayush sector, the Ayush Grid Project was launched and arrangements were made to strengthen it. “Ayurveda Day is celebrated every year on Dhanvantari Jayanti. By organising the event every year, the fame of Ayurveda Day has increased across the world. The need for medicinal plant cultivation is increasing rapidly across the world due to global expansion,” the Ministry of Ayush said.
The ministry further said that this time, on the occasion of the eighth Ayurveda Day, a micro-website of Ayurveda Day was created, which got the support of about twenty crore people from all over the world.
In his presidential address, Sonowal said that the message of Ayurveda Day’s global campaign ‘Ayurveda for One Health’ and the global theme of the G-20 meeting ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’ have left such an indelible impression that the whole world is watching.
On this occasion, Secretary of the Ministry of Ayush, Vaidya Rajesh Kotecha, said.
