The World Ayurveda Foundation proudly presents the 7th edition of World Ayurveda Congress (WAC), a knowledge festival in all its grandeur, thanks to the active support of the Ministry of AYUSH, Govt. of India and numerous volunteers who make it happen. A mammoth event such as this entails coordinated efforts of the organizers, supporters, facilitators and the public at large.

Ayurveda is not just a system of medicine, but in context of the WAC platform, a scientific update for all concerned with holistic health. WAC seeks to establish Ayurvedic concepts duly validated for the benefit of the scholar and practitioner and facilitate the progressive nuance of Ayurveda as a distinctively recognized discipline of mainstream medicine. WAC provides a forum for initiatives, innovation, research, experiential understanding of basic Ayurveda fundamentals applicable for practice and therapy. WAC brings together– scholars, guides, practitioners, therapists, policy makers, public health officers, industry, the global Ayurved’ist and above all students. A knowledge festival in every way, it facilitates a global movement for progressive studies and dimensions as and Ayurveda update in every way. WAC is a network facilitating new dimensions to the delegates quest for a wider scope of study and practice.

In this 7th edition, I take the opportunity to especially invite modern medicine practitioners and biomedical researchers to observe ancient Ayurveda interventions, in the interest of public health and work towards promoting Ayurveda and allied forms of complementary medicine for prevention and the treatment of diseases where applicable. Placing the interest of our patients first, let us together actively participate in the 7th World Ayurveda Congress and contribute towards strengthening a safe and sustainable form of integrated medical practice.
