Lothar Pirc spoke about Maharishi AyurVeda’s goal to Create a Disease-Free Society

On 28 February 2020, the Indian Embassy in The Hague welcomed 80–100 health organizations and experts from various Ayurveda schools and centers in the Netherlands and Europe. The purpose of the one-day conference was to exchange thoughts on how to make Ayurveda more mainstream, for the benefit of individual patients as well as entire countries.

The pictures here and a video compilation give an impression of the conference, which was supported by the Indian Ministry of AYUSH. Speakers included Suzanne Römer-Camelia (Health Minister of Curaçao) and Brahmachari Dr. Girish Momaya and Lothar Pirc (both Directors of the International Maharishi AyurVeda Foundation, the Netherlands).

*AYUSH is the acronym of medical naturopathic treatments practiced in India, such as Ayurveda, Yoga, Unani, Siddha and homeopathy.
