About Agastyamatah Charitable Trust
Agastyamatah Charitable Trust was officially established and registered on 9 th December 2013 with the aim and vision to promote and promulgate the traditional healing art or PARAMPARIK AYURVEDA of ‘NADI VIDYA’ and ‘NADI PARIKSHAN’ (PULSE DIAGNOSIS) through educating and encouraging the upcoming generations in this art. The trust is dedicating to conserve and preserve our ancient healing practice for the benefit of general masses, desperately looking for effective alternative methods of healing for curing terminal ailments.
Envisioned by Sri K.T. Sivanandan Vaidyar and under his able guidance the trust members aspire to take this wonderful holistic art of healing to each and every home so that the countrymen can take the advantage of this practice without spending huge expanses and without compromising their health by depending on chemical drugs of the treatment of incurable diseases and disorders; becoming so prevalent in society.
The trust especially is an attempt to popularize the forgotten ancient arts like Kallaripayattu, pulse diagnosis and healing (NadiChikitsa), pressure point healing (Marm Chikitsa), traditional art of cultivation of medical herbs (Paramparik Ayurvedic AushadhiKrushi) and organizational and architectural works (NirmanKarya) etc.
Kallaripayattu uses the pressure points called ‘MARMA’ to heal and cure the patient by targeting the ‘PANCHA-KOSHA’ (read more about PANCHKOSHA here) of human body.
