Heart-felt condolences

I was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Shri Krishnakumarji. I only learnt this a moment ago from a friend in Manchester UK. You may know that I managed and looked after him during his transplants in Manchester UK. Whilst he is now on his onward journey in the higher realms, he will be sadly missed by so many for the tremendous work he did for mankind, inspite of his various medical problems (which I am well aware of). Please convey my heart-felt condolences to his family especially his two sisters that donated their kidneys to him. May his soul be Blessed in his spiritual path in the heavens. God Bless, Raman Prof Raman Gokal MBChB MD FRCP FASN Emeritus Professor of Medicine, Consultant Nephrologist (ret) Manchester University and Royal Infirmary, Manchester, UK. (now resident in Canada)

Heartfelt condolences

I was shocked to hear about the demise, of my good old friend Sri. P.R. Krishnakumar on the day of his demise, through my friends. Since I am 83 years old, I am prevented by my family members to visit to his house and to pay my respect to his mortal remains, because of the current situation. Since you have taken the trouble of sending an acknowledgment, I thought that I must place before you my connection with Sri.P.R. Krishnakumar. In the year 1988, I wanted to attend million dollar round table meeting at Toronto, Canada. That was the first time I went out of India. I decided to go with my wife. I didn’t have a credit card. I didn’t have a mobile which was not known in India at that time. I didn’t have any friends in USA. However, I decided to take a trip from Mumbai to London and from there to Toronto, USA, Tokyo, Singapore and back. When I planned, I didn’t know what to do. My good friend to Sri. Praful Patel who was also my client, suggested me to meet Sri. P.R. Krishnakumar I met him. You will be surprised to know that he has given introductions to me, for his friends at Los Angeles, Miyami, Tokyo, Sanfrancis co etc. He has taken the trouble of telephoning to his friends and advised them to assists me. But for his help, I could not have enjoyed the trip. Thereafter, I have had occasion to meet him whenever there was a need of his help, regarding health needs of family and friends. You will be all the more happy to know, that I knew Sri. Rama Warrior father of Sri. Krishnakumar, probably about 50 years back I was introduced him by one of my friend, his name is N. Srinivasan of Ariyan soap. Self and my wife used to go to warrior’s house for treatment of my children. I can never forget the kind and courtesy extended by his father and also by him. I pray for the Soul to rest in peace. Yours Sincerely, (P.SRINIVASAN) INSURANCE CONSULTANT 'Aseervadh' 26, Tatabad 2nd Street Coimbatore - 641 012. Ph: +91 422 2496962/2498872/2492530 ps@licps.com

കാലയവനികയ്ക്ക് പിന്നിൽ മറഞ്ഞ ശ്രീ. കൃഷ്ണകുമാർജി

ദിവംഗതനായ ശ്രീ കൃഷ്ണകുമാർജിയെ ഓർക്കുമ്പോഴൊക്കെ ഒരു പുത്തൻ ഉണർവാണനുഭവപ്പെടുക. ആയുർവേദത്തിന്റെ കാവലാൾ എന്നതിലുപരി ഏറ്റവും അടുപ്പമുള്ള ഒരു മനുഷ്യസ്നേഹിയായാണ് എനിക്ക് പലപ്പോഴും അനുഭവപ്പെട്ടിട്ടുള്ളത്. കോയമ്പത്തുർ ആര്യ വൈദ്യ ഫാർമസി ഏജന്റ്സ് അസോസിയേഷൻ സംസ്ഥാന ജനറൽ സിക്രട്ടറി എന്ന നിലയിൽ 20 വര്ഷക്കാലത്തിനിടയിൽ പല തവണ അദ്ദേഹവുമായി ഇടപെടേണ്ടി വന്നിട്ടുണ്ട്. അപ്പോഴൊക്കെത്തന്നെ സഹോദര ഭാവേനയുള്ള അദ്ദേഹത്തിന്റെ പെരുമാറ്റം എന്നെ അദ്ദേഹത്തോട് കൂടുതൽ അടുപ്പിക്കയായിരുന്നു. ചില സന്ദർഭങ്ങൾ ഓർക്കുകയാണ്, അസോസിയേഷൻ, കോഴിക്കോട്ടുള്ള ഏജന്റുമാർക്കും അവരുടെ കുടുംബാംഗങ്ങൾക്കുയായി ഒരു പഠനയാത്ര സംഘടിപ്പിക്കുകയുണ്ടായി. ഒരു ബസ് നിറയെ അംഗങ്ങൾ കഞ്ചിക്കോട്ടുള്ള ഔഷധ നിർമ്മാണ ഫാക്ടറി, കോയമ്പത്തുരിലെ ഹെഡ് ഓഫിസ്, ട്രസ്റ്, ധന്വന്തരി ക്ഷേത്രം, പതഞ്ചലിപുരിയിലുള്ള ആയുർവേദ കോളേജ് മുതലായ സ്ഥാപനങ്ങൾ സന്ദർശിക്കുകയായിരുന്നു ഉദ്ദേശം. കഞ്ചിക്കോട് ഫാക്ടറി സന്ദർശനം കഴിഞ്ഞ് അടുത്ത ദിവസം കോയമ്പത്തുർ ഹെഡ് ഓഫിസിൽ എത്തിയപ്പോൾ, അവിടെ ഷാമിയാനയൊക്കെയിട്ട്, കൃഷ്ണകുമാർജിയുടെ നേതൃത്വത്തിൽ ഉദ്യോഗസ്ഥരടങ്ങുന്ന സംഘം ഞങ്ങൾക്ക് ഹാർദ്ദവമായ സ്വിക്കരണം ആണ് തന്നത്. സൗഹൃദ സന്ദർശനവും, ചർച്ചയും, ഭക്ഷണവും കഴിഞ്ഞ് പതാഞ്ചലിപുരിയുള്ള ആയുർവേദ കോളേജ്, ആശുപത്രി മുതലായവ സന്ദർശിച്ച് സന്ധ്യക്ക് മുൻപേ മടങ്ങി. കോഴിക്കോട്ടെ വീട്ടിൽ എത്തിയപ്പോൾ രാത്രി 9.00 മണി. അപ്പോഴുണ്ട് ഒരു ഫോൺ കോൾ, കോയമ്പത്തൂരിൽ നിന്ന്. ശ്രീ. കുട്ടി സാർ [മാർ. G Kutty, MD, AVPME] ആണ്. സുഖമായി കോഴിക്കോട്ടെത്തിയോ എന്നറിയാൻ ശ്രീ. കൃഷ്ണകുമാജിയുടെ നിർദ്ദേശപ്രകാരം വിളിക്കുകയാണ് എന്ന പറഞ്ഞു. ക്ഷമാപണം പറഞ്ഞുകൊണ്ട് എല്ലാ വിവരവും അദ്ദേഹത്തെ ധരിപ്പിച്ചു. ദിവംഗതരായ കൃഷ്ണകുമാർജിയുടെയും, ജി. കുട്ടി സാറിന്റെയും മനസ്സ് ഞങ്ങളുടെ കുടെത്തന്നെയുണ്ടായിരുന്നതായി അനുഭവപ്പെട്ടു. ഡിമാന്റ് വെച്ച് അവകാശങ്ങൾ നേടിയെടുക്കുകയായിരുന്നില്ല അസോസിയേഷന്റെ ലക്‌ഷ്യം. 900 ഏജന്റുമാരുണ്ട് കേരളത്തിൽ AVP ക്ക്. അവരുടെ ഉപജീവനമാർഗ്ഗമാണ് AVP ഏജൻസി നടത്തിപ്പ്. ഉപഭോക്താക്കളുമായി സമ്പർക്കം പുലർത്തി, ശുദ്ധമായി AVP യുടെ ആയുർവേദ ഔഷധം ജനങ്ങളിലേക്ക് എത്തിക്കുകയുയാണല്ലോ ഏജൻസി ലക്‌ഷ്യം. അവർക്കനുഭവപ്പെടുന്ന ക്വാളിറ്റി സംബന്ധമായും മറ്റുമുണ്ടാകുന്ന ഒട്ടനവധി പ്രശ്നങ്ങൾ പരിഹരിക്കപ്പെട്ട തീരു. ഇതിനായുള്ള ഞങ്ങളുടെ രോദനത്തിന്ന് അദ്ദേഹം തന്നെ ഒരു സ്ഥിരം പരിഹാരം നിർദ്ദേശിച്ചു. ഗുണനിലവാരം, പാക്കിങ്, ഔഷധലഭ്യത മുതലായ പ്രശ്നങ്ങൾക്ക് പരിഹാരമെന്ന നിലയിൽ ആറാറുമാസം കൂടുമ്പോൾ ഫാക്ടറിയിൽ വെച്ച് ഏജൻസി പ്രതിനിധികളും, കമ്പനി ഉദ്യോഗസ്ഥരും സംയുക്തമായി പ്രശ്നങ്ങൾ ചർച്ച ചെയ്ത് പരിഹാരം നിർദ്ദേശിക്കേണ്ടതാണെന്ന് തീരുമാനീച്ചു. ഒരു പരിധിവരെ പ്രശ്നങ്ങൾ പരിഹരിക്കപ്പെട്ടു. മിക്ക യോഗങ്ങളും അദ്ദേഹത്തിന്റെ സാന്നിദ്ധ്യത്തിലായിരുന്നു. റോ മെറ്റീരിയൽസിന്റെ അഭാവം മൂലം ചിലപ്പോൾ അത്തരം ഔഷധങ്ങളുടെ നിർമ്മാണം നിർത്തിവെക്കാറുണ്ട്. ഇല്ലാത്തതിന് പകരം വെക്കുന്ന രീതി കമ്പനിക്കില്ല. കൊമ്പഞ്ചാദി ഗുളികയ്ക്ക് കൃഷ്ണാമൃഗത്തിന്റെ കൊമ്പ് ലഭിക്കാത്തതുകാരണം വളരെക്കാലം ഉത്പാദനം ഉണ്ടായിരുന്നില്ല. ഛത്തിസ്‌ഗഡ്‌ കാടുകളിൽ നിന്ന് അവിടുത്തെ വനം വകുപ്പ് ശേഖരിച്ച് വെക്കുന്ന കൃഷ്ണാമൃഗത്തിന്റെ കൊമ്പ് ലേലത്തിൽ പിടിച്ച് കമ്പനിയുടെ ശേഖരത്തിൽ എത്തിച്ച അനുഭവം ഉണ്ടായതായി അറിയാം. അതിനു ശേഷമാണ് അടുത്ത ബാച്ച് കൊമ്പഞ്ചാദി ഗുളികയുടെ നിർമ്മാണം ആരംഭിക്കുന്നത്. അതുപോലെതന്നെ ഗുണമേന്മയുടെ കാര്യത്തിലും അദ്ദേഹത്തിന്റെ നിര്ബന്ധബുദ്ധിയുടെ അനുഭവം എത്രയോയുണ്ട് പറയാൻ. ചികിത്സയ്ക്കാവശ്യമായ ഔഷധം ഒന്നില്ലെങ്കിൽ മറ്റൊന്ന് നിർണയിക്കാനുള്ള അറിവ് ചികില്സിക്കുന്ന വൈദ്യനുണ്ടെന്നാണ് അദ്ദേഹത്തിന്റെയും കമ്പനിയുടെയും നിലപാട്. ഇത് തന്നെയാണ് AVP യുടെ ഔഷധത്തെക്കുറിച്ച് ജനങ്ങൾക്കുള്ള മതിപ്പും. ശ്രീ. കൃഷ്ണകുമാർജി, ഞങ്ങളെ ആവേശംകൊള്ളിക്കുന്ന ചില സന്ദർഭങ്ങൾ ഓർത്തുപോവുകയാണ്. അസോസിയേഷന്റെ പത്താം വാർഷികാഘോഷം ശ്രീ കൃഷ്ണകുമാർജിയെക്കൊണ്ട് ഉദ്ഘാടനം ചെയ്യിക്കാനാണ് ഞങ്ങൾ തീരുമാനിച്ചത്. അതിനായി ഞങ്ങൾ, ഭാരവാഹികൾ കോയമ്പത്തുരിൽ ചെന്ന് അദ്ദേഹത്തെ ക്ഷണിച്ചു. ഞങ്ങളെ അൽപനേരം നിശ്ശബ്ദരാക്കിക്കൊണ്ട് ആദ്ദേഹം മറ്റൊരു നിർദ്ദേശമാണ് വെച്ചത്. എന്തുകൊണ്ട് പരിപാടി നമുക്ക് സംയുക്തമായി നടത്തിക്കൂടാ. ആര്യവൈദ്യ ഫാര്മസിയുടെ ഒരുലക്ഷം രൂപയും, പ്രശംസാപത്രവും അടങ്ങുന്ന "ബ്രിഹത്രയിരത്ന " പുരസ്‌കാര ദാന ചടങ്ങും, അസോസിയേഷന്റെ പത്താം വാർഷികവും ഒന്നിച്ച് നടത്താം. നിർദ്ദേശം ഏറ്റെടുത്ത് പരിപാടികൾ ഒന്നിച്ച് കോഴിക്കോട് ടാഗോർ സെന്റിനറി ഹാളിൽ വെച്ച് കൊണ്ടാടി. നഗരത്തിലെ പ്രമുഖരായ അതിഥികളെ പങ്കെടുപ്പിച്ചുകൊണ്ട് പ്രൗഢഗംഭീമായ സമ്മേളനം, സദ്യ കലാപരിപാടി എന്നിവയോടെ സമംഗളം നടന്നു. അവാർഡ് സമർപ്പിച്ചത് വൈദ്യഭൂഷണം ശ്രീ രാഘവൻ തിരുമുൽപ്പാടിനായിരുന്നു. ആദ്ദേഹത്തിന്റെ മകൻ അവാർഡ് ഏറ്റുവാങ്ങി. ഭാരത സർക്കാർ 2009 ൽ പത്മശ്രീ നൽകി ശ്രീ കൃഷ്ണകുമാർജിയെ ആദരിച്ചതിൽ അഭിനന്ദിച്ചുകൊണ്ട് അദ്ദേഹത്തിന് തിരൂർ തുഞ്ചൻ പറമ്പിൽ വെച്ച് 2009 മാർച്ച്, 15 നു ഒരു സ്വിക്കരണം നൽകുകയുണ്ടായി. AVP ജീവനക്കാരും, ഡോക്ടർമാരും, ഏജൻസ് അസോസിയേഷനും ചേർന്ന് സമന്വയ എന്ന പേരിൽ അദ്ദേഹത്തിന് ഹാർദ്ദമായായ സ്വിക്കരണം ആണ് നൽകിയത്. സമന്വയയുടെ സ്നേഹ സമ്മാനമായി ആളുയരമുള്ള ഒരു നിലവിളക്കാണ് സമ്മാനിച്ചത്. ആയത് കോയമ്പത്തുർ AVP ട്രസ്റ് കൊമ്പൗണ്ടിലുള്ള ധന്വന്തരി ക്ഷേത്ര സന്നിധിയിൽ വർദ്ധിച്ച ശോഭയോടെ തെളിഞ്ഞുകൊണ്ടിരിക്കുന്നു. അസോസിയേഷൻ ഭാരവാഹി എന്നതിലുപരി വ്യക്തിപരമായും, കുടുംബപരമായും അദ്ദേഹത്തോടുള്ള ബന്ധം മറക്കാവുന്നതല്ല. എന്റെ സഹധർമ്മിണി പരേതയായ ലീലയുടെ അസുഖത്തെ സംബന്ധിച്ച് ഒരിക്കൽ അദ്ദേഹത്തോട് സംസാരിക്കേണ്ടതായി വന്നു. ഭാര്യയുടെ ജാതകവുമായി കോയമ്പത്തുരിൽ എത്താൻ പറയുകയും അദ്ദേഹം ട്രസ്റ്റിലെ ജ്യോത്സ്യനുമായി ബന്ധപ്പെട്ട് ചർച്ച ചെയ്ത ശേഷം മെഡിക്കൽ ഡയറക്ടർ ഡോ. കെ. ജി. രവീന്ദ്രനോട് ചികിത്സ നൽകുവാൻ അദ്ദേഹം നിർദ്ദേശിക്കുകയും ചെയ്തു. അദ്ദേഹം കയ്യൊപ്പിട്ടുതന്ന അദ്ദേഹത്തിന്റെ ജീവചരിത്രമായ "സമാവർത്തനം" എന്ന കൃതി എന്റെ ഗൃഹലൈബ്രറിയിൽ ആദരവോടെ സൂക്ഷിച്ച് വെച്ചിട്ടുണ്ട്. 2019 ജൂലായിൽ സ്ഥാപക ദിനത്തോടനുബന്ധിച്ച് കോയമ്പത്തുരിലെ നവക്കരയിൽ നടന്ന പരിപാടിയിൽ വെച്ചാണ് അദ്ദേഹത്തെ ഒടുവിൽ നേരിട്ട് കണ്ടത്. "ആയുർസന്ദേശ്" എന്ന ബുള്ളറ്റാനിന്റെ പ്രകാശന കർമ്മത്തിൽ ഒന്നിച്ച് പങ്കെടുത്തു. AVP കമ്പനി ഷെയർ ഉടമകളുടെ വിഡിയോ കോൺഫറൻസ് വഴി, 2020 ആഗസ്ത് 24 ന് നടന്ന വാർഷിക യോഗത്തിലാണ് ആ മുഖം ഒടുവിലായി കാണുന്നത്. അതും ഏതാനും നിമിഷം മാത്രം. ഒരു പുരുഷായുസ്സിലുടനീളം ഭാരതത്തിന്റെ മഹനീയ ചികിത്സ രീതിയായ ആയുർവേദത്തെ അതിന്റെ ഉന്നതിയിൽ എത്തിച്ച ആ ധന്യാത്മാവിനു ആദരാഞ്ജലികൾ അർപ്പിക്കുന്നു, കൂപ്പുകൈകളോടെ.

Our heartfelt condolences-TANKER Foundation

Dear Ms.Kasturi,Ms.Geetha,Ms.Durga,Ms.Ambika,Mr.Devidas and Mr. Ramkumar, Our deepest and heartfelt condolences from the TANKER family on the loss of Padmashri Shri. Krishnakumar. Shri Krishnakumar was a great supporter of TANKER Foundation which was founded by Dr. Georgi Abraham and likeminded people in June 1993 with the aim of providing subsidized dialysis and financial assistance for transplantation, medication and investigation costs to the underprivileged with kidney disease. TANKER Foundation also does awareness programmes on kidney disease and screening camps for early detection of kidney disease. I have had the privilege of meeting him several times due to my association with TANKER Foundation, as its Managing Trustee. He was our Guest of Honour at our first TANKER Awards Nite which was held in 2009, where Shri. Surjit Singh Barnala the Governor of Tamilnadu was the Chief Guest.He was so supportive and encouraging of TANKER and our activities. We met again when he offered us space at the Arya Vaidya Pharmacy for setting up a free and subsidised dialysis unit in Coimbatore as there was and is a great need there to help the underprivileged. Our Trustees Late Mrs. Malathi Venkatesan, Late Mr. S. V. Venkatesan, Dr. Georgi Abraham and I visited and we were so thankful for the offer of space.Unfortunately it was not possible due to other circumstances. Therefore we opened our unit in Sulur. At the moment, we are facing several challenges there and are looking to shift the unit into Coimbatore. We have 10 dialysis machines ,a generator, RO plant and other equipment related to dialysis. We do dialysis for Negative & HCV Positive patients also. Due to the challenge of the distance the machines are underutilised.We need to utilise these machines fully so that more needy patients may benefit. We would be eternally grateful to you and your family and the Trustees of Arya Vaidya Pharmacy if you would consider helping us with 1500-1750 Sq.ft of space in memory of dear Sri. Krishnakumar so that we may reach out to more underprivileged with kidney ailments. Thank you once again.The TANKER family prays for his departed soul and are with you in this time of great sorrow. Yours sincerely, Latha A Kumaraswami Managing Trustee, TANKER Foundation Secretary & Treasurer, International Federation of Kidney Foundation World Kidney Day Steering Committee Member

അനിയമ്മാൻ - ഞങ്ങളുടെ കെടാവിളക്ക് ????

ചില ഓർമ്മകൾ അത്രമേൽ തീവ്രമായിരിക്കും.. മനസ്സിൽ ആഴ്ന്നിറങ്ങി.. നമ്മളോടൊട്ടി, ഒരിക്കലും പറിച്ചെറിയാനാവാത്ത വിധം.. !!! അനിയമ്മാനോടൊപ്പമുള്ള ഓരോ നിമിഷവും അങ്ങനെ ആണ്.. ആ വാത്സല്യത്തിനും, കരുതലിനും പകരം വയ്ക്കാൻ മറ്റാരുമില്ല. കർമ്മയോഗി, ധിഷണാശാലി, തത്വചിന്തകൻ... പക്ഷേ എല്ലാ വിശേഷണങ്ങൾക്കും അപ്പുറത്ത്, ഒരു നല്ല മനുഷ്യസ്നേഹി അങ്ങനെ വിശേഷിപ്പിക്കാനാണ് എനിക്കെന്നും ഇഷ്ടം. ഓരോരുത്തരേയും സ്വന്തം ഹൃദയത്തോട് ചേർത്തുനിർത്തി സ്നേഹിക്കുന്ന ഒരു വലിയ മനുഷ്യൻ. ഒരു നാല് വരി ഓർമ്മക്കുറിപ്പിൽ വരച്ചു തീർക്കാവുന്നതല്ല, എനിക്കെന്നും എന്റെ അനിയമ്മാൻ. ജീവിതത്തിന്റെ ഓരോ ഘട്ടത്തിലും, ഒരു വലിയ ബലമായി, ധൈര്യം തന്ന്.. ശരികൾ കാണാൻ....., ചെയ്യാൻ പ്രോത്സാഹിപ്പിച്ച ഗുരു സ്ഥാനീയൻ. ഭൗതികമായ വിയോഗത്തിൽ ഞാനിപ്പോൾ വിശ്വസിക്കുന്നില്ല.. എന്നും ഒരു കെടാവിളക്കായി എന്റെ മനസ്സിൽ അങ്ങെന്നുമുള്ളിടത്തോളം... കർമ്മങ്ങളെ ഈശ്വര സമർപ്പണമായി ചെയ്യുന്നിടത്തോളം അക്ഷരങ്ങളിൽ വരികൾ കോർത്ത്‌, അങ്ങയെ ഞാൻ എങ്ങനെ തളച്ചിടാനാണ്?

Deepest Ccondolences

Please accept our deepest condolences on the passing away of Padmashri DR P R Krishnakumar. May his soul rest in peace.

Our travel with Krishnakumar ji is not ending, he continues to live in our hearts

1990 I heared the first call. I wanted to start to learn Ayurveda and for that I wanted to go to Coimbatore to Krishnakumar jis „International Institute of Ayurveda“. But at that time I had not enough money to go. I was ready to do any simple job in order to save the money to go, but it was not possible, only I could save as much as was necessary for living. Meanwhile I was studying alternative medicines emphasizing on traditional herbal medicine in Berlin, Germany. Time past, two years later I had the examens and the legal permition to practice alternative medicine. Life was not easy, 1993 I became a widow, still very young. Than I worked in geriatric care and could safe the money needed to travel to Coimbatore and to pay the fees. I dont wanted to fly and be instantly in another culture, but I wanted to see how desa and kala, the people, culture are changing between Germany and India. Thats why I decided to travel on the road. I gave my belongings to friends and left my home forever. It was the same day on which I moved 7 years before to Berlin. My way leaded me through Poland, Russia, Mongolia, China, Hong Kong, Tibet, Nepal to India and in India from the North, from Ladakh to the South to Coimbatore, where I finaly reached my long awaited goal: the „International Institute of Ayurveda“. When I reached there Krishnakumar ji told that all the others who wanted to join me in the course have canceled. 1994 was the Plague in India and the news where spread all over the world, many flights were cancelled, containers were send back... I thought: now I have waited 4 years to join the course and travelled 1000nds of kilometers by road …. Dr Krishnakumarji interrupted my thoughts and told me: „dont worry you can study“. The seed was layed on a fruitful ground. I was so lucky, there were 4 great ayurvedic physicians which taught me daily the fundamental principles of Ayurveda and Yoga: Dr Sasidheran, Vaidya Vasudevan, Dr Ramaprasad and Dr Jeevan. The rest of the day I was studying on my own. I was so priviledged. I continued to study for 3 years and than started with Dr Jeevan a clinic in Germany. We imported ayurvedic medicine from 1997 onwards from CNS, Dr Srinivasan, another offspring of AVP. 2005 I opened my own clinic in a small village, at the lake of Constance, border to Switzerland. I wanted to restart the import of Ayurvedic Medicines and thought about from whom I want to import the ayurvedic medicines for my new clinic. I selected 5 different Ayurvedic Medicine Manufacturing Units in India selected well known and meetings were arranged. Than it was clear for me: it has to be from AVP. I feel deeply connected to Krishnakumarji and all what he has brought into existance. As long as I was running the import of ayurvedic medicines, besides the clinic, it was always from AVP. Always I feel the connection to the wonderful AVP family, to Krishnakumarjis family. Life is so good to me. Last time when I met Dr KK ji in person was 2015 at the Ayurveda Congress at Vaidyagrama (where I met all my Ayurveda family and friends). There are so many more things I wanted to tell him. But I feel the connection is there, was always there and continues to be there - but now it takes place on another level. From 1st of November 1994 onwards until today the flame for Ayurveda is continuously burning, and since that has not stopped a single day. As more I know as more I want to dive deeper and deeper into the vast lake of knowledge. I am forever thankful to Krishnakumarji. ???? Om Shanti

A man with boundless love.........He was family.

Still not able to reel out of the reality that our beloved Krishnakumarji is no more. To be honest, when we came to know that he was in the hospital and critical, I thought to myself- He will beat it. He always does. He is a fighter and the prayers of so many are with him. I told myself, nothing to worry. ....But then the news came in and the ground beneath me slipped away. Guess there is no predicting anything.........KKji was a father figure to me. I always admired the 'tejas' he radiated. He had a magical glow of positivity that would never allow us to sulk in front of him. When I joined AVP as Junior Doctor in 2003, we would take turns to meet KKji and spend some time with him. Once he said, ' My father used to plan about purchasing land and constructing a hospital, and then I used to ask him- how will we do it? Is this possible? Then my father would smile and say- This is a dream! There is nothing wrong in dreaming big.' KKji concluded by saying ' Dream big, if the intentions are pure, they definitely will come true." The words of a visionary! His life itself was an example for this as he left behind a saga of achievements and worked effortlessly for Ayurveda. When I informed him that my mother had passed away, he immediately asked " How can I help? Do you need somebody to take care of things? Please inform me if you need anything." For somebody at his designation to reach out like this, was heart bounding. His affection was always so spontaneous that we feel a deep connection to him. In 2019, when I was going to write my Final MD Exam, I prayed to my Guru Mata Amritanandamayi, and then I sent a message to KKji ' I do not have parents to seek blessings before going to take my exam. Please keep me in your prayers Krishnakumarji. I need your blessings, to help me stride through this." I get a reply immediately " What is your nakshatram? " I replied ' It is chitthira. " Immediately comes the reply " I have instructed the temple to conduct a Hanuman Chalisa in your name and star. Don't worry, U will emerge victorious. My blessings always with you.........." Seeing his message, I cried silently...........it was a big boost for me. Such was his love. I did merge victorious, and didn't message the exam results to him, because I wanted to come see him in person and convey the message. But that becomes an unfulfilled dream of mine.......... KKji's departure is a deep wound that will stay forever, simply because ..... " No great man lives in vain. The History of the world is but the Biography of Great men"- Thomas Carlyle.

Celebrating the life of Padmashri PR Krishna Kumar❤️

Today would have been his 69th Bthday and celebrating a life he lived to the fullest and the lessons I learnt. He had great relationships with people, one that stands out is surely his deep bond with Singer Yeshudas and there are many beautiful pictures of them together over the years. This is one from one of the early days. And then there were his association with former Presidents Abdul Kalam and K. R. Narayanan, photos I have used. When I once wanted to use his photograph with Modiji, he told me not to, and that he doesn't like to use it for publicity. But now just sharing as he can't chide me. He travelled the world propogating Ayurveda in his younger days and when the time came the he could not travel, the zoom world opened to him and over the last few months, he was kept very busy connecting with the world with the many zoom meetings through out the day!! So as we carry on with the "new normal", I'd like to share something about death, which i have been exploring through the Eastern and Western lens that actually ties together. Someone i like to listen to is Abraham Hicks, and I hope this will bring comfort to all those who are grieving as well. She put it so beautifully, that when people die they dont really pass anywhere or go anywhere... Its actually an "expansion" they go through, and that they are always present offering their powerful vibration.. So we carry on our lives with his teachings engraved in our heart, the most important one being of living with purpose. He would jokingly say he was wedded to Ayurveda???? and he would also actively discourage students from getting married very young and encourage them to grow into their purpose first. He also taught me about making the most of each day, of keeping time, he was always early everywhere ( something i struggle with???? but will try harder), of giving unconditionally, of leaving people feeling better about themselves and more worthy after they have met you (I will personally attest to that, and so will all the hundreds of students in the various colleges) of making time for people and relationships..though he was soo busy, he always made time for the people he loved and had many beautiful relationships in his life across a broad spectrum from siblings in his family to college students, and of making himself accessible to all- in this era where we are so consumed by buziness, and protect our time and personal space, i think all the students in the Ayurvedic and Avanashilingam colleges probably had his number or atleast knew they could access him directly if they needed to???? He was an admixture of traditional and modern beliefs: patron of ayurveda, temples, astrology, scriptures, cultural arts, yoga but also a non-conformist who lived from his heart and made his own rules. He encouraged his students to travel, stay with Mahatmas and Guru's, learn from them. And though he sought scientific validation for Ayurveda through research, setting up the research centre for Ayurveda, AVP Research Foundation in Coimbatore, he also brought back the Gurukul system setting up the first such Ayurvedic college in the country in Coimbatore. Deeply religious, yet secular: he often expressed his admiration to the dedication of muslims who prayed 5 times a day, and the Christians who went to church every Sunday..And lamented about the busy Hindu who had no time to learn about his own religion. And though he spent the last few months of his life doing 5 am satsanghs on the scriptures, he was very influenced by Osho. His open mind was probably the result of the tremendous reading that he did, some 19,000 books he once said. And though his name will always be associated with the revival of Ayurveda, his greatest contribution was making his life's mission about inspiring students/youngsters to be more, do more, learn about their culture, be proud of their heritage, their traditional knowledge systems, to pursure excellence in their field and evolve as great human beings first!! And He lives on.. in the fragrance of his many deeds of kindness, generosity, love and light and the vision he lit in our hearts. na jāyate mriyate vā kadāchin nāyaṁ bhūtvā bhavitā vā na bhūyaḥ ajo nityaḥ śhāśhvato ’yaṁ purāṇo na hanyate hanyamāne śharīre BG 2.20: The soul is neither born, nor does it ever die; nor having once existed, does it ever cease to be. The soul is without birth, eternal, immortal, and ageless. It is not destroyed when the body is destroyed.

LEARN AYURVEDA IN A GURUKULA AND MEET NOBEL LAUREATES OF PEACE AND MEDICINE: A TEENAGER'S NARRATIVE

It was the year 1985. I had completed the Pre-Ayurveda part of the 7 1/2 year BAMS course and entered into the First Year of the main BAMS Course. With a great passion for science and medicine, Ayurveda was an unthinkable choice for me when I completed my matriculation and chose the Biology Group for my Pre-University education. An encounter of my Father with Krishnakumarji around that time would change the course of my life and destiny in an unimaginable manner. After a tussle with my Father, I had given in and joined the Ayurveda Gurukula at Coimbatore more so because I was enchanted by the beautiful valley at the foothills of the Anaikatti mountains, than Ayurveda itself. But for the great teachers who inspired me in the most difficult moments of my tryst with Ayurveda, I may not have survived the course. As I moved forward in the Gurukula, the spiritual orientation of Ayurveda was something that I was not easily able to assimilate or comprehend. I was wondering whether Ayurveda was a science at all. Around the time of Christmas vacation that year, I found a very attractive poster put up on the notice board of the college announcing the FIRST WORLD CONGRESS ON THE SYNTHESIS OF SCIENCE AND RELIGION to be held in Mumbai in January 1986. I found that 35 great scientists, philosophers, religious leaders, mathematicians and theologians from all over the world were going to participate in this first of a kind event in Mumbai. The list included George Wald, Nobel Laureate in Medicine and His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Nobel Laureate for Peace. Eminent scientists from India like Raja Ramanna and ECG Sudarshan were also attending. This poster provoked great curiosity in me. I was tempted to attend this conference. I was just 17 years old and a First Year BAMS student. I did not have the courage to ask my teachers about it. Soon we went home for Christmas. But I could not keep the poster out of my mind. I asked my Father. Mainly I wanted him to fund the trip if I got a chance to go. My Father promised to give me the money and in the middle of the vacation I decided to go to Coimbatore and ask none other than Krishnakumarji himself. I presented myself before him in the Gurukula campus where he was at that time and gathering myself with all the courage that I could muster, I asked, "Is it even possible for me to attend this conference on Science and Religion? I have so many questions in my mind on this topic and I feel I can find answers at this conference". What would his response be? I had predicted that he may laugh it off and say that I need to grow up a little more or maybe scold me for having approached him with this request bypassing my teachers. Curiosity kills the cat, as they say and I had surrendered for the kill. To my surprise, Krishnakumarji's face lit up all of a sudden and beaming with a big smile, he said. "You will attend this conference. I am so happy that at least one person responded to the poster that I had put up." I told Krishnakumarji that my Father had agreed to sponsor this trip and that I needed help to register. Krishnakumarji replied, " I will take care of your travel and also your stay in Mumbai. As for the registration, I will give you a letter that will get you an entry to the conference". Such was his influence that I got an entry into the conference with a small note that he scribbled on a piece of paper addressing the organiser of the conference. When I reached Mumbai, I was on cloud nine. This was my first trip to a big city in India. I thought I was a very privileged person to be in that conference at the age of 17. I was so excited to meet the Nobel Laureates and hear from them about the meeting point of Science and Religion, Science and Spirituality, the only person from Ayurveda College, Coimbatore to attend this conference. But my ego trip was short-lived. Soon enough I saw another Ayurveda student, though a senior, also attending the conference and sponsored by Krishnakumarji. I was puzzled as he was not from our College. On enquiry, he said that he is from Venkatramana Ayurveda College, Chennai and that Krishnakumarji had sponsored him to attend this conference for having written a nice essay on Ayurveda. I was truly humbled and awe struck by Krishnakumarji's magnanimity. I got a chance to attend this conference because I had asked him. Here was another person who was offered this chance even without asking, even when he was from a different College. Krishnakumarji was certainly above petty professional boundaries and institutional rivalry. The inborn mentor in him reached out to a worthy student, who was not even learning in his own Gurukula. I came back from the Conference much wiser and humbler in many ways. The meeting with the Nobel Laureates with whom I could even exchange words, the scientists, religious leaders, theologians and philosophers completely changed my mind scape and at a very early stage in my career I saw the relevance of Ayurveda on a platform that harmonised the approaches of Science, Religion and Spirituality. Looking back, I think this conference was THE eyeopener for me, creating the golden moment that put me on the track of a life long pursuit of Ayurveda. Krishnakumarji has always been there for me. Whether I was at AVP or otherwise. He is one person who never gave up on me, who had more faith in me than myself. I will ever remain indebted with gratitude for all the love and affection that he showered so generously on me and in this sad moment of his untimely departure from our world, I rededicate myself in the service of Ayurveda and the lofty goals that he set before us for the development of Ayurveda in the modern world.

Message from Dr. Prachithi Suru Kulkarni, Pune

23rd September.... one of the special Days- my Guruji's ( Padmashree Krishnakumarji's ) birthday... 7th March 2006 - first time when 12 of us - students of Dr. Suru sir n Dr. Suru madam - (my guru n parents) went to Coimbatore and Kerala to visit few pharmacies, and some institutes to learn and know about specialized Kerala Ayurved or South Indian stream of Ayurved. First time when we saw Krishnakumarji.... we all were mesmerized... zapped by his personality ! His aura.... we were just listening to his golden, inspiring words.... not only he guided us n sent us to AVP factories, but asked us why we chose to become Ayurvedic Vaidyas? We all had our own different reasons....n then he said- You all need to have those healing powers to be a good Vaidya...merely a degree is not sufficient. You all should have a mission....still can hear his voice ... Then...we kept on meeting... with my parents, n later... many a times I alone used to fly to Coimbatore from Pune... just to get my battery charged... almost for 7 years- on every Gurupaurnima n many a times on his birthday 23rd Sept- I was blessed - to be able to just go... spend best time with him, take his blessings n come back with better version of myself.. He was not only a great personality... an inspiration... a guide or mentor....he was my GURUJI...in every sense.. Can never express what all he taught me... But for sure..he made.me overcome my many phobias...like I was never techno friendly... he made me learn computer,do some work. In 2007-2011..there was no whats app etc...so only way to communicate was phone call or sms or an email...cant talk to such a great person n sms had limits of worda...so email was our lifeline ! I was just one of the thousands or lacks of girls who are learning Ayurved, but he made special efforts to make me realise I am special and I should do something unique... He was so kind to everyday respond to my looonggg emails.... Everyday I used to get his emails at 4-5 am... and that made my life... taught me sooo much, gave direction to my life at right age... Gave me Confidence, made me punctual, made me realize - to actually surrender... Too much to talk about, I can go hours n hours about those magical moments I could share with Guruji. I always used to complain that I am not lucky to be able to live near you... He just used to say- wait for right time....and if you really wish anything from bottom of your heart, lord will make it! One day Dr. Indulal sir from AVP said- then if you really wish to come n stay here, come during your college holidays- as a volunteer for our big event IGCC 2008... (I will always be grateful to Indulal sir ) Those 2 months when I stayed in AVP and meet Guruji everyday, learnt, made me different Prachiti altogether... I became stronger - mentally! Few learnings from Him which I really want to share with all, so that I can rewise- n they will definitely make difference in our life - 1) Keep time, then only Time Keeps you. Be punctual! Respect everyone's TIME. 2) Let your emotions be your strength! Not weakness... don't allow others to know your fears.... 3) Take sms from. LORD... he is sending signals... your duty is just to keep yourself alert n interprete them... just follow, surrender, n see Miracles ! 4) Dream Dream Dream...amd DO..DO..DO! You can give 100 excuses for NOT doing some work, but find ONE REASON TO DO IT! &... just DO! 5) Last learning which he tried to teach... but I couldn't learn - last year when we. Met- ( cant believe it was for last time)... when I started to cry before leaving, n said I will miss you, he said- now you are a mother, do your duty as a mother, as a Vaidya, and learn the art of Detachment.... now you should not come HERE for Gurupaurnima.... I couldnt understand his real meaning.... but now I am trying to realize n accept... Yes Guruji, now I wont need to fly every now n then to coimbatore.... now you are here with me always.... as GURU TATVA is - VIBHU.... Yes, I will try to follow your teachings and be a better version of myself... that you would love to see... Mauli is there for me... and yes, with your blessings which were, are, and will always be with me I will do something Good as your shishya... Miss you Guruji... -Your kittu... MAULI!

അനിയേട്ടനിൽ നിന്ന് കൃഷ്ണകുമാർ ജി യിലേക്ക്

----------------------------------------- അനിയേട്ടനിൽ നിന്ന് കൃഷ്ണകുമാർജിയിലേക്ക് ഒരു അനുസ്മരണം ----------------------------------------------- അനിയേട്ടൻ നമ്മെ വിട്ടുപോയി. ആ യാഥാർത്യം അംഗീകരിക്കാതെ തരമില്ല.അത് അംഗീകരിച്ചു കൊണ്ട് ഒന്ന് പിന്നിലേക്ക് തിരിഞ്ഞു നോക്കുമ്പോൾ ,അടുക്കും ചിട്ടയും ഇല്ലാതെ മനസ്സിലേക്കെത്തുന്ന ചിലത് ഇവിടെ കുറിക്കാമെന്നു കരുതുന്നു. ഏകദേശം 45 വർഷം പുറകിലേക്കൊരു മടക്കയാത്ര. ഒട്ടുമുക്കാലും എല്ലാ വേനൽക്കാല അവധികളും ചിലവഴിക്കുന്നത് അന്ന് അച്ഛൻ പെങ്ങളായ പങ്കജ വല്യമ്മയുടെ വസതിയായ കോയമ്പത്തൂർ രാമനാഥപുരം ഉള്ള രാജമന്ദിരത്തിൽ ആയിരുന്നു. വല്യച്ഛനും, AVP യുടെ സ്ഥാപകനും ആയ രാമവാരിയിരുടെ കാലഘട്ടത്തെ കുറിച്ചു വളരെ ഒരു നേരിയ ഓർമ മാത്രമേ എനിക്കുള്ളൂ എങ്കിലും അന്നുമുതൽ തന്നെ അനിയേട്ടനെ അടുത്തറിയാനും, അടുത്തിടപഴകാനും കഴിഞ്ഞിട്ടുണ്ട്. എന്നെക്കാൾ 12 വയസ്സോളം മൂപ്പുണ്ടായിരുന്നെങ്കിലും, അനിയേട്ടനും രാജേട്ടനും ഒഴികെ വല്യമ്മയുടെ മക്കളും കൊച്ചുമക്കളും അടങ്ങുന്ന ആ വലിയ കുടുംബം മൃഗീയ സ്ത്രീ ഭൂരിപക്ഷം ആയതിനാലും, അനിയേട്ടനോടും രാജേട്ടനോടും ഒരു ഇഷ്ടക്കൂടുതൽ അന്നേ എനിക്ക് അനുഭവപ്പെട്ടിരുന്നു. രാജേട്ടനുമായി വളരെ പ്രായവ്യത്യാസം ഉള്ളതിനാലായിരിക്കാം, അനിയേട്ടനോട് അതിലും നല്ല ഒരു മാനസിക ഐക്യം അന്നേ എനിക്ക് തോന്നിയിരുന്നു. ഒരു ജേഷ്ഠ സഹോദരനോടുള്ള എന്റെ ആഭിമുഖ്യവും, ഒരു സ്വന്തം അനുജനോടുള്ള അനിയേട്ടന്റെ മനോഭാവവും ഇന്നും ഞാൻ വേദനയോടെ ഓർക്കുന്നു. ആ കാലഘട്ടത്തിൽ, AVP യുടെ മുഴുവൻ സമയ സാരഥി അല്ലാത്തതിനാൽ, പല സാമൂഹിക ,രാഷ്ട്രീയ,സാംസ്കാരിക പ്രവർത്തനങ്ങളിലും ഏർപ്പെട്ടിരുന്ന ഒരു personality ആയിരുന്നു അനിയേട്ടന്റേത്.ആ സന്നർഭങ്ങളിൽ പുറത്തേക്ക് പോകുമ്പോൾ, പാലപ്പോഴും എന്നോട് കാറിൽ കയറി ഇരിക്കാൻ പറയുകയും, ഞാൻ കൂടെ പോകുകയും ചെയ്യാറുണ്ട്.അന്നുമുതൽ അനിയേട്ടനെ അടുത്തുനിന്നും ദൂരെ നിന്നും നോക്കികാണാനും, പല കാര്യങ്ങളും പരസ്പരം സംവദിക്കാനും എനിക്ക് അവസരം ലഭിച്ചിട്ടുണ്ട് . അത്രയൊന്നും പക്വമല്ലാത്ത ആ കാലഘട്ടത്തിൽ പോലും,പല കാര്യങ്ങളിലും, പരസ്പരം യോജിക്കാനും വിയോജിക്കാനും ഞങ്ങൾക്ക് അവസരം ഉണ്ടായിട്ടുണ്ട്. രാഷ്ട്രീയമാണ് ഞങ്ങൾ വിയോജിക്കാറുള്ള മേഖല.അന്നേ അദ്ദേഹം ഒരു RSS അനുഭാവിയും ഞാൻ കറകളഞ്ഞ ഇടതുപക്ഷ അനുഭാവിയും ആയിരുന്നു. അതിനാൽ സ്വാഭാവികമായും ഞങ്ങൾക്ക് വിയോജിക്കാറുള്ള വിഷയങ്ങൾ ധാരാളമായിരുന്നു. വിയോജിക്കുമ്പോൾ പോലും അനിയേട്ടൻ അതിൽ നിലനിർത്തിയിരുന്ന പരസ്പര ബഹുമാനം അഥവാ സഹിഷ്ണുത എന്നെ പലപ്പോഴും അത്ഭുദപ്പെടുത്തിയിട്ടുണ്ട്. ഏറ്റവും വലിയ അനിയേട്ടന്റെ ക്വാളിറ്റി ആയി ഞാൻ കാണുന്നതും ഇതുതന്നെ. ഞങ്ങളുടെ യോജിപ്പിന്റെ ഒരു മേഖല, ഫുട്ബോൾ ആയിരുന്നു. ആ കൊല്ലങ്ങളിൽ, കോയമ്പത്തൂർ വെച്ച് നടന്നിരുന്ന നാഗ്ജി ഫുട്ബോൾന്റെ VIP പാസ്സും ആയി ഒട്ടുമുക്കാലും, എല്ലാ കളികൾക്കും, ഞാനും അനിയേട്ടനും സ്ഥിരമായി പോകാറുള്ളതും, ഇന്നലെ കഴിഞ്ഞ പോലെ എന്റെ മനസ്സിൽ ഇപ്പോഴും വിരിയുന്നു. അന്ന് അനിയേട്ടനിൽ work ചെയ്തു തുടങ്ങിയിരുന്ന സാമൂഹിക, രാഷ്ട്രീയ വീക്ഷണങ്ങളിൽ അധിഷ്ഠിതം ആയ പ്രവർത്തി മണ്ഡലമാകാം, പടർന്നു പന്തലിച്ചു പിന്നീട് അദ്ദേഹത്തെ എല്ലാവരുടെയും "കൃഷ്ണകുമാർജി" ആക്കി മാറ്റിയത് എന്ന കാര്യത്തിൽ ഒരു തർക്കവും ഇല്ല. പക്ഷെ എന്നെ സംബന്ധിച്ചു അനിയേട്ടൻ ഇന്നും, കൃഷ്ണകുമാർജി അല്ല ,ജേഷ്ഠസഹോദരൻ ആയ അനിയേട്ടൻ തന്നെ ആണ്.80 കൾ വരെ തുടർന്ന ആ സൗഹൃദം പിന്നീട് എന്റെ കോളജ് വിദ്യാഭ്യാസം തുടങ്ങിയതോടെ കുറച്ചൊന്ന് പുറകോട്ട് പോയെങ്കിലും,(കോളേജ് വിദ്യാഭ്യാസ സമയത്തു ഇതുപോലെ coimbatore പോയി താമസം കുറഞ്ഞതിനാലും, പടി പടി ആയി അനിയേട്ടൻ തന്റെ കർമ്മ മണ്ഡലങ്ങൾ വിപുലീകരിച്ചു, ഇന്നുള്ള കൃഷ്ണകുമാർജി യിലേക്കുള്ള പ്രയാണം ആരംഭിച്ചതിനാലും പരസ്പരം ഇടപഴകാനുള്ള സ്പേസ് തുലോം കുറഞ്ഞിരുന്നു) ഞങ്ങൾ തമ്മിലുള്ള യോജിപ്പിന്റെയും വിയോജിപ്പിന്റെയും ആശയ സംവാദങ്ങൾ തുടർന്ന് കൊണ്ടേ ഇരുന്നു. അദ്ദേഹത്തിന്റെ മഹത്വത്തെയും ,പരസ്പര അംഗീകരിക്കലിന്റെയും കൈയൊപ്പുള്ള രണ്ട് സംഭവങ്ങൾ കൂടി അനിവാര്യതക്ക് വേണ്ടി ഇവിടെ കുറിക്കട്ടെ. എന്റെ 11 ആം ക്ലാസ് വേനലവധി കാലത്താണ് അനിയേട്ടന്റെ നേതൃത്വത്തിൽ കോയമ്പത്തൂർ തടാകത്തിൽ ഗുരുകുല വിദ്യാഭ്യാസ രീതിയിൽ ഒരു ആയുർവേദ കോളേജ് ആരംഭിക്കുന്നത്. 10ആം ക്ലാസ് കഴിഞ്ഞവർക്കാണ് പ്രവേശനം എന്നുള്ളതിനാലും, അന്ന് stake holders കൂടുതൽ കേരളത്തിൽ നിന്നായതിനാലും ,ഒരു പ്രവേശന പരീക്ഷ യിലൂടെ ആവണം പ്രവേശനം എന്ന് അനിയേട്ടൻ തീരുമാനിക്കുകയും, അതിന്റെ ഭാഗമായി ,physics ഉം GK ചോദ്യങ്ങളും ഉണ്ടാക്കാൻ എന്നെ ഏൽപ്പിക്കുകയും ചെയ്തു.16 വയസ്സു മാത്രം പ്രായം ഉണ്ടായിരുന്ന, എന്നിലുള്ള വിശ്വാസത്തിന് മനസ്സാ നന്ദി പറഞ്ഞുകൊണ്ട് ഞാൻ ആ ധൗത്യം എനിക്കാവുന്നത് പോലെ നിറവേറ്റി എന്ന സന്തോഷം ഞാൻ ഇവിടെ പങ്കു വെക്കട്ടെ. മധുര ആര്യവൈദ്യനിലയം സാരഥി രമേശും, കോട്ടക്കൽ ആയുർവേദ കോളേജ് പ്രിൻസിപ്പൽ ജയനും, എന്റെ ഈ ചോദ്യങ്ങളിലൂടെ കടന്നുവന്നു, കോളേജിൽ പ്രവേശനം നേടിയവിരിൽ പെടുന്നു എന്നാണെന്റെ ഓർമ. രണ്ടാമത്തെ എന്റെ അനുഭവം തുലോം അടുത്ത കാലത്തെയാണ്. അനിയേട്ടന്റെ മരുമക്കൾ തുടങ്ങിയ കൈത്തറ ( അനിയേട്ടന്റെ warriam കൈത്തറ വാര്യം അഥവാ ചൂരക്കോടു വാര്യം ആണ്.എന്റെ അച്ഛന്റെ വാര്യം കൂടി ആയ കൈതറയേ ഞാൻ തമാശക്കായി Hantex വാരിയo എന്നാണ് വിളിക്കാറ്).അനിയേട്ടനടക്കം ഞാനും ആ ഗ്രൂപ്പിൽ അംഗങ്ങൾ ആയിരുന്നു. പരസ്പരം പലതും അതിൽ പോസ്റ്റ് ചെയ്യുകയും വാദപ്രതിവാദങ്ങൾ അനുസ്യൂതം നടക്കുകയും ചെയ്തിരുന്ന ഒരു ഗ്രൂപ്പ്. അനിയേട്ടൻ അതിൽ അംഗം ആയിരുന്നതിനാൽ, ഈ എല്ലാ വാദപ്രതിവാദങ്ങളും വായിക്കാറുണ്ടെന്നു തീർച്ച. വ്യക്തമായ രാഷ്ട്രീയ വിദ്യാഭ്യാസവും, വീക്ഷണവും ഉണ്ടെങ്കിൽ പോലും ,എതിർ വീക്ഷണ ങ്ങളെ സഹിഷ്ണതയോടെ നോക്കികണ്ടിരുന്നതിനാൽ എന്റെ ഒരു പോസ്റ്റ്ന് പോലും ഒരു എതിർ പ്രതികരണം അദ്ദേഹം നടത്തിയതായി കണ്ടിട്ടില്ല. ഈ വാദപ്രതിവാദങ്ങൾ ,മൂര്ധന്യത്തിലെത്തിയപ്പോൾ, ഈ ഗ്രൂപ്പിൽ നിന്ന് എന്നെ ഒഴിവാക്കാൻ ഇതിന്റെ സ്ഥാപക അംഗങ്ങൾ കണ്ട വഴി, ഈ ഗ്രൂപ്പ് തന്നെ പിരിച്ചുവിട്ടു പുതിയ

Aniyammaman - The epitome of kindness, love, humility, generosity, cheerfulness, punctuality, optimism, determination, energy, courage......On your birthday today, I recall the visual experience of watching an interaction between your pets and you in Navakkarai. The cats were so restless and impatient from the time you got out of the car and took your seat after meeting a few members of the staff. The hyperactive who were smart enough to first land on your lap suddenly became so quiet when you started fondly caressing and having an involved conversation with them. The others who weren’t the first ones were impatiently waiting for their chance but the ones on your lap wouldn’t let go of their privileged seat !! It was a sight to behold - the joy on your face and the slow eye blink of your cats saying “Eye love you” - who was more fond of the other ?!! You loved LIFE and believed in living it to the fullest without expecting anything in return from anybody - which you demonstrated by being a nishkAma-karma-yogi. Not fame, not money was driving you. It was something higher and loftier than that. May you continue to inspire scores of others to live a “meaningful” life with a “purpose” built on the strong foundation of spirituality. Om Shanti

An offering

Patanjalipuri is our haven, the experience that each person has in this place is unique but more so due to the presence of our mentor and guide, Krishnakumar ji. I don't really know what propelled me to stop at his kutir, on the 1st day of Tatwaprakashini Coimbatore 2017, I offered to sing a song, and that turned out to be only the beginning. After that , every night, post dinner, we had a session of singing. The entire place would be quiet and you could feel every bit of nature surrounding you, becoming a part of नाद.Pushya A. Gautama Bharadwaj S Prasad , the three of us were got the unique bhagyam of seeing ji, close his eyes and listen peacefully. Today is his date of birth, I'd like to dedicate this song by kavi Kabir Das , to him, thanking him for the role he played on our lives . Lyrics गुरु बिन कौन बतावे बाट गुरु बिन कौन बतावे बाट बड़ा विकिट यम घाट भ्रान्ति की पहाड़ी, नदिया बीच में अहंकार की लाट । बड़ा विकिट यम घाट... काम क्रोध दो पर्वत ठाड़े, लोभ चोर संघात । बड़ा विकिट यम घाट... मद मक्षर का मेधा बरसत माया पवन बह जाए बड़ा विकिट यम घाट... कहत कबीर सुनो भाई साधो, क्यों तरना यह घाट बड़ा विकिट यम घाट

Sirji

I would call him Sirji and he would call me SS. Almost always, his conversations with me would be peppered with jokes about how I am a professional + an MBA degree holder and therefore limited in my understanding of the world. I agreed with him wholeheartedly- because I had the privilege of spending time with him. As hard as it is to come to grips with my Sirji being away from me - I will always carry his values in my heart.

Heart-felt condolences

Condolences on the sad demise Vaidya PR Krishnakumar (1951-2020), one of the foremost thought leaders of the #Ayush Sector. Through his leadership, Krishnakumar Ji ushered in new avenues for Ayurveda, like creating an awareness about #Ayurveda at the World Health Organization (WHO) and thereby making this ancient science to be known the world over. The Arya Vaidya Pharmacy (AVP) of #Coimbatore acquired a culture of innovation under his stewardship, and also become known in India as well as abroad as a house of authentic #Ayurveda. He was instrumental in setting up the first Gurukula Ayurvedic College in the country which offered 100% free boarding, lodging, books, clothes and tuition. The first collaborative research project in any Indian Traditional medicine discipline with the World Health Organisation happened in the field of Ayurveda, thanks to his initiative. Vaidya PR Krishnakumar launched a popular journal of #Ayurveda in English in the 70’s, and through it took the ancient science of living to the masses. He established the #Ayurvedic Trust Hospital and Research Institute at #Coimbatore. He also had the vision to set up a number of centers and Joint Institutions in many parts of the country, and roped in partners like Hindustan Lever Ltd., Taj Group etc. into Ayurvedic projects. That modernization of production units were permitted within the traditional pharmacology norms was also thanks to his foresight. He had the confidence and ambition to take #Ayurveda to new lands by setting up centers in different parts of India and abroad. A Padma Shri awardee, he also served as the Chancellor of Avinashilingam Institute of Home Science and Higher Education for Women and was involved in resolving women’s issues with a spirit of positivism.

Heart-felt condolences

I do not know where to begin. I do not have words, which is frightening for someone who always does. Kricshnakumarji (Padmasri P.R. Krishnakumar) was my mentor in more ways than I can name. I remember the day I visited his office in Coimbatore - disheartened, uncertain about my future in Ayurveda. My first thought was, strangely, that surely his chair must have been placed on some kind of step behind his desk - for even sitting, he was taller than me. It was only later that I realized that his chair was indeed placed on the floor, and that he was, in reality, a giant of a man. This larger than life image of Krishnakumarji was not restricted to his person alone, but also his presence. He awed. His presence commanded respect. He transformed any space he was in, and filled it with warmth - genuine, unsentimental, clean warmth. It is his presence, more than anything, that I will miss - a presence that nothing can replace. The day I met Krishnakumarji, he asked me, "Do you want a degree, or do you want knowledge?". I looked long at him, and finally answered, 'Knowledge". I had dropped out of the college I was studying in after a year, and was on the verge of quitting Ayurveda, depressed with the state of my current college education. My mother had taken me to meet Krishnakumarji as a last resort - believing that if anything could change my mind, it was him. I did not know on the day I met him, that my life was about to change forever. He told me that day, that if I wanted knowledge, there were over 70 Vaidyas in the institute (the Arya Vaidya Pharmacy, Coimbatore), and that I could approach as many of them as I wanted. He opened every possible learning avenue at his disposal to me - the medicine preparation unit, rounds with doctors, consultation rooms, yoga, ongoing projects, the research centre... he created for me, in AVP, a modern day Gurukula. But he made one thing very clear - I was not to bother him with daily nitigrities. I was only to approach him for absolutely important things. Beyond having opened up this opportunity, there was nothing he could do for me. In front of me, he sent a mail to all his colleagues introducing me as a student of Ayurveda, who was there to learn. "If someone doesn't accept to teach you, it is not their fault, but you who is undeserving of it. Make yourself deserving of a Guru," he said. I did not believe he would really leave me so alone at the time, but very soon realized he actually meant every word. And there, a journey of extraordinary learning began. Over the span of one year, I learnt how to make medicines; I learnt to read, write and speak Malayalam; I studied the Ashtanga Hridaya almost completely under Vaidya Krishnan Nambiar and Vaidya Vasudevan Namboothiri; Dravyaguna with Rashmi ma'am; I studied the Hatha Yoga Pradeepika with Hari sir, and Sanskrit under Priya teacher; I got to observe and learn about Panchakarma, and interact with stalwart physicians like Vaidya KG Raveendran and even go on rounds with them occasionally. I served food everyday in the temple Annadanam hall, and occasionally even helped with cooking. My day began with Yoga. I do not say this to show off, but to describe what an extraordinary opportunity Krishnakumarji opened up for me. I found myself in the unique position of being friends with the sweepers, cooks, therapists, temple priests, junior doctors, senior doctors and Krishnakumarji. I learnt to survive. I learned to learn - with humility and tentativeness. My education in a Krishnamurti school had left me with a degree of entitlement in knowledge seeking - of course it would come to me, and I could decide what to do with it, and whether it was worth it or not. I am not decrying the value of my Krishnamurti education, but Krishnakumarji did something different - he put me in a space where I was the seeker of knowledge - I had to find the agency to learn, learn to deal with people's scorn and incredulity at my having left a college education for this, learn to go back and once again ask people to teach me, learn humility and resilience - I learnt the hard way, that in knowledge, there can be no entitlement. I learnt patience. I learnt, as Krishnakumarji would say, "in learning, you do not exist. Throw yourself out, and knowledge will come." Krishnakumarji was one of the most compassionate people I've met - he was compassionate enough to let me learn my lessons the hard way, but was always there for me in ways I cannot fathom - His pride when he heard about my college achievements, his presence in the Hridayamritam finals in 2015, his readings with me whenever he found the time - the Bhagavad Gita, Osho, Tagore, Shankaracharya ..., his constant reminder to me, even after college, that I must do something with all the knowledge I had gained, his unwavering support and questions about my career - driving me to find my calling, my path. Even if I did not see him, I always knew he was there. Krishnakumarji was always there for me. His loss means things I cannot begin to articulate. Even these many words I have written feel meaningless, for they cannot, do not capture, the man or what he meant to me. I feel as if I have lost an anchor, a foundation stone - and am engulfed in the deepest emptiness. How can you fathom something you can't see? Is it possible to feel sorrow so completely, that all words feel like faint imitations? Others will write what his many contributions to Ayurveda were, of the unparalleled visionary he was, and of his numerous achievements. But all I know is that I have lost a mentor, a guide, a friend, today, and it is a loss that can never be replaced. I pray with all my heart, that wherever he is, one of the greatest human beings I will every know, Krishnakumarji, is at peace, and that his blessings will show me the way in my darkest hours, as they always have. With the deepest love and Pranams Dr. Pushya A Gautama, PhD scholar, National institute of advance studies.

Condolences

My Beloved Guruji I am from Brazil, South America. I did not have the honor of being close to Sree Krishnakumar Ji for long periods, only at each year, when I visited Coimbatore. But at each meeting, his greatness inspired me, his words, his Light, his sweetness pacified my Mind. In my humble Western ways of prayer, my beloved GuruJi will always be guiding me. Om Shantish.

My fond memories of dear Aniamama

My fond memories of our dear Aniaman Right from childhood, I have always been in complete awe of Aniamama. His personality, his loving and jovial nature endeared him to all. I value some very very beautiful memories of the few years in Chennai... My Dad got transferred from Calcutta to Chennai when I was in 9th std. The year was 1979....the next few years we had Aniamama visiting us very frequently... almost every week. He would bring home very eminent people and this gave me and my siblings an opportunity to meet them. He would take us to Tharangini studios where we would watch film shootings, song recordings etc and spend hours there. He would also take us to see cricket matches live.... And take us to dinners at the hotels where the teams were put up. I will never forget the day when we entered Taj one evening with him for dinner and many fans ran up to us thinking he was Imran Khan. In 1984 I got married and moved to Kuwait. He was instrumental in making all enquiries about my husband Raju who was working in Kuwait then. Such were his contacts worldwide. Soon after our marriage, he insisted on our going to Kancheepuram to seek blessings of Kanchi periyavar. He would encourage me when I started dance classes in Kuwait and would proudly tell everyone about my achievements in Kuwait. During the Gulf War when we were forced to return, Aniamama was a huge support along with my parents. He was instrumental in helping us organise kathas of Pujya Premaji in Kuwait. Much later when my father fell ill and passed on, Aniamama stepped into those shoes and he was there at every moment we needed him. Two years back we came back and settled in Coimbatore... And we consider ourselves extremely fortunate we could have him bless our new apartment. I would often cook all his favourite food and send it to him.... He would never forget to call and appreciate whatever I sent. I will definitely miss him... Such was his love and character....many many more memories keep flooding my mind all of which cannot be put in words.... love you always dear Aniamama. Prayers, Suju.

Aniyammaman - The epitome of kindness, love, humility, generosity, cheerfulness, punctuality, optimism, determination, energy, confidence, courage......On your birthday today, I recall the visual experience of watching an interaction between your pets and you in Navakkarai. The cats were so restless and impatient from the time you got out of the car and took your seat after meeting a few members of the staff. The hyperactive who were smart enough to first land on your lap suddenly became so quiet when you started fondly caressing and having an involved conversation with them. The others who weren’t the first ones were impatiently waiting for their chance but the ones on your lap wouldn’t let go of their privileged seat !! It was a sight to behold - the joy on your face and the slow eye blink of your cats saying “Eye love you” - who was more fond of the other ?!! You loved LIFE and believed in living it to the fullest without expecting anything in return from anybody - which you demonstrated by being a “nishkAma” karma yogi. May you inspire scores of others to live a “meaningful” life with a “purpose” built on the strong foundation of spirituality. Om Shanti

I miss you my dearest Appa

Appa you would have been 69 today. A day of excitement, merriment, hope and exultation has turned into the most sorrowful day. I cannot believe it has been one week since you have left us. I still remember every birthday of yours was so special for our family since you were a day older than my father. After I lost my father, you came as a SPECIAL angel into my life, and everyday has been beautiful ever since. You helped me empower myself and instilled the confidence that I had completely lost after my father left me. You helped me dream, hope, and look at life differently. Every day the time I spent time with you was filled with so many miracles and blessings. It pains me to think you have left us and even the most profound words, the best adjectives and innumerable reams of paper would NEVER suffice to describe the amazing experiences you blessed me with. I was so lucky to have met so many great people. You always treated my family as your own and you were such a HUGE pillar of strength to all of us. I still remember the countless times I would trouble you with in the most trivial conversations and you would listen with such keen interest and make me feel so important. The lessons you taught me will always remain with me forever. Memories that I have of you are innumerable and you will always be my world. You led by example, teaching us so much and showering us with so much love and always taught us to GIVE rather than EXPECT. You made every person feel that that they were the most important in your life. You were selfless and only looked for the smallest opportunity to help and serve people. Your punctuality was amazing, and you kept up every commitment you made. Your life was an inspiration to many, and I am so grateful that despite your hectic schedule, you made time for me every day. Your spirituality was unique, and you were so adorable in every possible way. You had a great sense of humour and you always loved to make people laugh and feel happy. I feel so blessed to have been a part of your life and got an opportunity to serve and be so close to you. You treated me much more than a daughter and I really hope you in a happier place today. Thank you Appa for the countless blessings you showered me with. The void you have left behind is too much and it is impossible to come to terms with it. I love you and miss you very much Appa. I offer my humble Namaskarams and will continue to cling on to your feet and pray you bless me and guide me in everything I do.

Bhaktipurvak Shraddhanjali to my Dearest Bhai.

Sweet and soft pat of Krishnakumarji

Krishnakumarji was personally known to me from my college days. He was a leader in every sense of the term; rather a go-getter. He used to visit Kottakkal ayurveda college to organise collective campaigns to improve the standard of learning and empowerment of student community. I had occasions to hear his enchanting speeches which made me one of his admirers. He made it a point to write to me personally appreciating the humble efforts I have made to write a few books on Ayurveda for general public. I vividly remember one occasion, perhaps the last one wherein I could interact with him. It was a webinar conducted on the occasion of 100th birth anniversary of Vaidyabhushanam Titumulpad Sir. I was also given an opportunity to speak a few words there . The moment I concluded the speech, Krishnakumarji called over phone giving a pat on my back, which still remains soft and sweet. With constant thought and silent tear, I remain....

Life of KK and my reflections.a brother

Dear Kasturi.Geetha.Durga.Ambika other members of family. I do not know what to write to U all at this hour of grief. I spoke to Krishnakumar through video 6 days ago thru Dr.Thomas Alexander who was kind enough to connect us. KK was very close to my heart having known him for 25 years as a brother.always addressed me Chetta and was always a great host whenever I visited Coimbatore giving me the best vegetarian meal and sitting with me. We met first time at Sivanada Ashram in Val morin .Canada and strengthened our friendship over many years. I miss his smile and warmth..His service to community was enormous.and supported academics connecting Ayurveda and allopathy. I can only pray for KK to rest in peace. Rene my wife and daughter Nitya joins me in the prayers and expressing our condolence to all of you who are bereaving.his loss for me is irreparable Warm Regards, Sincerely yours, Georgi Abraham

Few Lines about Anian

Dr P.R. Krishnakumar was one of a rare species of human beings that one seldom meets in one’s lifetime of existence. Much has been written and said about his qualities of head and heart, and about his stewardship of AVP at a critical juncture in the Company’s progress. I can add little to this. As someone who knew him as a child, and witnessed how he emerged as one of the rarest of rare individuals who never lost the common touch, was a guiding light to many, had a kind word for everyone, and above all conveyed a feeling of warmth and kindness, he was to my mind the very epitome of a Shrestapurush. May his soul rest in peace, and may he continue to provide us enlightenment even though he is no longer with us. Warm regards,

RESPECTFUL CONDOLENCE for the AVP family

Dear friends, and spiritual brothers, from Ayurveda, Our story with Padmasri P.R. Krishna Kumar started in 2010 when in January we Leilah da Sá and Erick Schulz arrived at the AVP headquarters in Mankarai for the first time. It was a dream for us to be able to visit and study in a place as sacred and traditional as The Arya Vaidya Pharmacy, when we arrived in Coimbatore and found out that we were going to stay at the Mankarai headquarters and that Sri Krishna Kumarji had ordered the site prepared to receive the foreign students were very touched, because the AVP Manakarai is very special and our joy of every year being able to visit this place with the blessings of Sri KrishnaKumar will always overflow our hearts of joy. From that moment on we were sure that we were in the right place to study and to take our students from Brazil and Chile and other countries that speak Portuguese and Spanish. It has been 10 years and there have been countless visits to the AVP and in all of them Sri Krishna Kumarji was always there to welcome us with something new, with surprises, always with beautiful words to the students and unique teachings that we received directly from him. It is difficult with words to express our great gratitude for his great work of keeping Ayurveda present and practicable by anyone and this was a point that he always talked about in his classes and speeches, Ayurveda is for everyone! Now Padmasri P.R.Krishna Kumarji is part of the great universe as pure energy, and from this space we will be united with him. We will always remember it and we will follow the path of Ayurveda, practicing and honoring this ancient tradition with love, compassion and eternal gratitude with the mission of bringing Ayurveda knowledge to as many people as possible. We would like very much at that moment to be all together singing mantras together and remembering a beautiful moment next to dear KrishnaKumarji, but unfortunately the world moment is not propitious, and our RESPECTFUL CONDOLENCE is through this email. We continue with Ayurveda as we were taught, and we continue to spread this beautiful knowledge as Sri Krishna Kumarji always wants, that Ayurveda reaches the largest number of people. Namaste Erick Schulz Naradeva Shala Brazil Leilah de Sá Ayurvida Chile

Heartfelt condolences

Please convey my condolences to the family of Mr Krishna Kumar. His passing is a big loss. I pray to God to keep him in His care. My deepest sympathies to all of you at AVP. Take care and stay safe.

Our beloved Guru Krishnakumarji

Our Japanese group first visited to AVP at 2016. Since then we have come to AVP every year. Whenever we came, He always came to see us and gave us deep Ayurveda lecture. But more than the word, His life is his message. Though his body is no more but I believe his spirit is always guide us to the right path. Best regards Dr Kenji from Japan

My memories of Aniyettan

My earliest memories of Aniyettan go back in time to the late seventies and early eighties. I was in my college and remember the young man with long hair, tall and handsome, coming to pay his respects to my father in Delhi. Aniyettan’s father, the late PV Rama Varier, who was also the founder of the Arya Vaidya Pharmacy, Coimbatore, and my father were sons of the late Munshi Kunhan Varier, a renowned Sanskrit scholar and an acclaimed ayurvedic physician. What struck me about Aniyettan then was his presence, which to a young man like me was at once, both overawing and disarming at the same time. It was to be many years later before I once again reconnected with him. The occasion was my father’s 84th birthday. I could sense that he had some health issues then but true to his word, he showed up for the occasion. Later, he made it a point to be there for both my children’s marriages. I remember receiving a congratulatory message from him on my appointment as India’s Ambassador to the DRC. I remember referring two people to him while I was posted in Congo. Both of them were effusive in their praise for the way he spoke and heard them out. I would occasionally whatsapp him sometimes and he in turn would send me some message or forward of his own. I think he was one who valued the importance of being proper. Not once in any of his messages would he ever forget or not enquire about the welfare of my aged parents. A year or so back when I contacted him for some advice about the persistent pain in my mother’s knees, he was all care and compassion. He advised me to get her examined by the Navakkarai facility of the Arya Vaidya Pharmacy (AVP). He would unfailingly enquire from me about her every single day of her stay at the place. If a person can set aside his own quandaries and issues and reach out to fellow humans on a compassionate level, that person invariably endears himself to others in ways one cannot quite describe. Aniyettan most certainly had that remarkable and very rare quality in him. May his soul rest in peace! Om Shanti!

Sad denmise of Padmasri Krishna Kumar

Sir, I am son of P Narayanan kutty who was earlier project manager in AVP project.

Shri PR Krishnakumar

To the Family & Colleagues of Sri PR Krishnakumar, I wish to express profound regrets and pay my respects at the passing of this path-breaker in the realm of Ayurvedic treatment and medicine. Back in the sixties and seventies of the last century my late husband, Prof. ML Sondhi of JNU, later ICSSR, and I often had occasion to meet him in Delhi - not only as clients of the Arya Vaidya Pharmacy but as a supporter and promoter of Indian culture and civilization. He lived a full and creative life and has left behind a lasting legacy of life-enhancement and culture. Sincerely, Madhuri Santanam Sondhi

Pranams from Srinivasan - Strategion

Dear Dr Ramkumar & Sri Devidas ji It was a heart rendering and touching moment to have to hear about Sri Krishnakumar ji’s passing by this lifetime. It is difficult to acknowledge the absence of his omnipresence amongst us; at every event of repute, at the temple and as the Chief Mentor of AVP. I have had the fortune to interact with him on many occasions since 1994 when as an advertising professional, I helped rebrand the entire Heal range of products. Further on he had introduced me to Shri K J Yesudass ji for whom I had done work on Tharangini Cassettes that he had promoted. Ever Since PRKji has been a mentor and a father figure to me and always had a word of encouragement / concern whenever we met. His humanness and compassion for all things morally right was what made me look up to him as my role icon. I was also fortunate to interact with him just about a month back (on WhatsApp) for the nomination of MR A V Varadharajan for a Padma Shri for which I had come to the office and coordinated with him through Sanjeev. I will forever cherish my association and the mentorship I have had from him for over 3 decades of my acquaintance with him. At this juncture, I would also like to make-remember my brief association with Shri Chandrashekara Varierji with whom I had a very brief exposure while he put me on an assignment for the Chinmaya International School, Siruvani. I learnt a very important lesson on life from him during that time which I continue to revere and hold dear to my success. I will look forward to continue the association with the AVP family into the future and please be assured that no effort will be spared in supporting any cause or enterprise that you may require my support / expertise on. Here to Serve! SB Srinivasan STRATEGION

Namaste!

It is indeed a great loss for having lost such a great personality. He really touched our hearts in a short span of our association with him and will be in our hearts for ever. Ready to contribute whatever little we can, to fulfill his vision. With prayers Sivaramakrishnan Preetha Amritavarshini Chennai

The untimely and extremely tragic demise of Krisnakumarji

The news came to all of us as a huge shock.I always met Krishnakumarji on my annual visits to AVP for the past twenty years ; his smiling countenance and vibrant personality always radiating positivity and hope. He was involved in so many socially relevant projects and gave his complete life to the community,trying his best to spiritually uplift everyone who met him. AVP was always special for him and he nurtured it with a lot of concern for both the institution and the patients.His emphasis on affordable care rather than profit was very evident. We pray that the departed soul rests in eternal peace at the Lotus feet of Lord Guruvayoorappan. Mr T V Narayana Ayyar,Mrs Lalitha Narayana Ayyar,Mrs Tripti Ayyar,and Mr TNV Ayyar.

Our guiding light!

Where do I even start?! My family's association with uncle started over 20 years ago. He was more than a pillar of strength in the toughest of situations. When my father passed away in 2002, our world had collapsed. But uncle's constant support, care and love helped us move on from the rut. He literally treated my sister and me like his own children. We even used to call him 'appa'. He used to religiously take us to a temple every single week. He wasn't in the pink of health and could not accompany us inside the temple. However, he would urge us to go for darshan and would patiently wait in the car till we returned. Wherever I travelled for work, he would readily have a contact for me there, be it India or abroad, and I would get such a royal treatment from all of them. I had the good fortune of my husband and children also being blessed by him. The innumerable memories, cackles of laughter over silly things, the precious life lessons, will all be etched in my memory forever and will be a ready reckoner on how to handle various situations. He was ever smiling, cheerful and always finding a reason and way to help/serve anyone - friend or fiend. We have had the good fortune of meeting many many great people because of him. The void you have left can never EVER be filled, my dearest appa. But like many others have mentioned, I know you are watching us from wherever you are and will be our guardian angel as always. Love you so so much.

Guiding Light

Last year I had the opportunity to have a long discussion with Aniyamman and this turned out to be one of the best and most valueable conversations I have had in my life. His outlook and perspective on life was a big takeaway for me. We touched upon many topics like - not identifying with body and mind, to meditation and modern technology and I am so thankful that I could have this discussion with Aniyamman and really cherish this.

Review

Aaniyamman was a very inspiring person for all of us. He was a kind, helpful, empathetic and such a wonderful person. One whom we can approach to any time. I will miss him a lot, but he will continue to be in our hearts forever to guide and support us from wherever he is. Thank you Aniyamman for all the motivation and encouragement you have given.

Review

Once , when we were fond of mrng awakening with his wonderful words @ the sat sangh... I joined a students organization , that conducted various webinars and workshops ! We invited a lot of speakers who wanted money in turns for their time ! But being not so well and busy with his own schedule , just for our words kkji agreed and made time for us ! Without any expectations ... We had a lot of problem with fixing the time coz he had a lot of programs to do but he nvr told he won't ! He answered all kinda questions ryt from sleeping while meditating to what is life !Such a kind hearted and humble soul ! He always wanted the students ( one who really wanna learn ayurveda) to be doubtless and awaken ! His simple words made bigger changes in the word ! Even a person who knows nothing about ayurveda knows him and he actually did his part in globalizing ayurveda ! We would always pray for his soul to rest in peace !!!

An Epitome Of How Life Should To Be Lived

5 Years back... I first time, physically met, Padmashree Vaidya P R Krishnakumar ji... who became my Idol During the stay in Patanjalipuri, I used to wake up at 4am, take a quick shower, and go and sit next to him, in the veranda of his cottage. Every morning, I used to find him, enjoying the rising day, in his favorite armchair. We used to talk about everything under the sun, starting from his experiences in London, when he was as young as me, to the fire he had in his youth days, that he used to run from one United Nations Office to another, for the recognition of our mother science. Chirping birds used to join us, along with the rising sun, saluting to the bond, I was creating with him, in those days. Today, he's no more physically with me, but the bond I created, will last for my lifetime, and in the ages to come, when I will create similar bonds, with my younger generation. The promises we made, in that verandah, of his residence in Patanjalipuri, will be word by word, executed by me. I will give my life, to make our science, rise to such heights, that he will feel proud, seeing me from his heavenly abode. And I hope, one day... I will also sit like him, on the armchair, in the veranda of my house, and someone like Sanchit comes to me, asking me about my stories, and remembering them, for his lifetime. A true Idol, and an epitome to me, of how the life ought to be lived. Even if I am able to do 10% of what he did... I will consider my life successful.

Hop ur blessing will be with us always.whenever I saw yu i can felt the divine calm feel inside me guruji we missing yu a lot guruji our memories with you on TP wil remind frevr. Namaste guruji????

My Beloved Guruji

I am from Brazil, South America. I did not have the honor of being close to Sree Krishnakumar Ji for long periods, only at each year, when I visited Coimbatore. But at each meeting, his greatness inspired me, his words, his Light, his sweetness pacified my Mind. In my humble Western ways of prayer, my beloved GuruJi will always be guiding me. Om Shantish.

a legend in the true sense

He was no doubt a legend, not because built many institutions but he was the kindest human anyone would have ever met. Inspite of more than 200 participants being a part of tatwaprakashini every year, every student felt a personal connect with him. we laughed with him, ate with him , shared all our fears, apprehensions, dreams and aspirations with him. He was a patient listener as well as a frank advisor. its a great blessing to have know him in my lifetime because I don't think there can be anyone else like him. Inspite of him not being here in the physical form, all of us know it for a fact that he is amongst us even today as a guiding light when we progress towards being what he wanted us to be - efficient, kind and expert ayurvedic physicians. After his departure, we can only keeping him alive by following his principles and striving to fulfil his dreams.

Miss you uncle dearest

Every time I see people posting your snap today my heart immediately skips a beat and makes me feel like I should text you and ask if you are okay ..this is something I just cannot come to terms with ..my most dearest Krishnakumar uncle .. Someone who knew who my best friends were and knew he was one among them.. Someone who called me his daughter and truly meant it even though he was more of my friend. The only person who made me see a lot of sunrises and a lot of 5.30 am phone call alarms even though he knew I would go back to sleep right after that.. Someone who was just a call away even for a quick pep talk ,To talk about anything under the sun from food to travel to the latest happenings in town.. Popcorn tasting Won’t be the same anymore..

My dear Kunjamacha

Let me begin by telling that this writing is not even half of the many memories and experiences I have had with my dear Kunjamachan. Yes he was called Kunjamachan by me and my cousin Dhananjay, which translates to small grandpa as he was grandpa's younger brother. More than just my grandpa's brother, Kunjamachan has always been another grandfather to me and has treated me like his own granddaughter always. As we used to live with him, there are many memories and fun experiences I would love to share here. The one thing Kunjamachan always emphasized was waking up early everyday. So it was expected of me and my cousin to reach Kunjamachan's room at 5.a.m sharp with a notebook to learn the Latitha Shahastra Namah. Me being the lazy would be late at times and upon receiving a call from him would rush there. The punishment for coming late would be getting splashed by water during the Pooja through which he ensured we weren't sleeping. And we also had special Sunday breakfasts. Another policy of Kunjamachan was never to waste food. I cannot count the number of times I would have been scolded at for wasting food, but now I know to take only the quantity I need. Kunjamachan was a very strong and determined person. One experience that taught me that was, during one Sunday morning walk Kunjamachan had decided to walk for about one kilometre. Me being an insensitive kid did not think that he needed help walking but asked him if we could go for a few more kilometres. Kunjamachan inspite of his difficulty never denied and completed the distance with the same smile he always had on his face. I have spent a quality time with Kunjamachan in Navakkarai, where we had lot of animals. Oh how fond of animals Kunjamachan was and the animals were equally fond of him. We bought home a stray kitten from there and named her Fluffy. She would never leave Kunjamachan's side and would always be on lis lap and next to him. But the same kitten very rarely sat on anyone else's lap. Kunjamachan was also a person who travelled a lot. Me and my cousin were fortunate to travel with him to many places and meet so many great people Kunjamachan knew. It taught me the great respect people had for him and the how he maintained so many relationships awestruck me. He would always take you to the right direction. Once I said I wanted to do MBA he asked me what will you do doing it. And an other time when I said I want to write books he asked this question " how will you get ideas to write a book?" When I said I didn't know the answer he himself gave the answer by telling that you should read read and read and find ideas. In such ways Kunjamachan always made you to think twice before doing something and would always help you to go to the right path. Kunjamachan always inspired me to follow my passions, be it cooking, baking writing or painting, he always encouraged me. Even the last message I sent to him was my coffee painting and the next day when I visited him he said "Ammu I saw your painting it has come out well, there is s painting in the trust go and check it out." This is how he always wanted everyone to improve themselves. The last day I spent with Kunjamachan was 19/08/2020 and we had a Pizza party. Kunjamachan loved pizza that day was waiting for me to come and so we could order pizza. That Pizza party was the last meal I ate with my dear Kunjamachan. Dear Kunjamachan thank you for the so many beautiful memories you have given me. I feel I still haven't learnt a lot from you, but I know that you will continue to teach me from where you are. You will always be with me my dear Kunjamacha.

Krishnavatar

A heavenly Messiah sent to revive the Kaliyuga in the field of spirituality education arts culture and ofcourse Ayurveda medicine

My experience

Many moons ago , possibly 17 years ago, my sister was suffering with metastatic cancer. I heard about the Arya Vaidya Pharmacy through someone, made a blind call, and Krishna Kumarji answered. I still remember how he heard me out patiently, said he would send some thing directly ( to Canada). There was never any talk of money. He sent two couriers without ever asking for anything. It's only on my return from Toronto, that I asked him for the bill. Only certain souls can do what he did. My pranaams to his soul????????

A legend is no more

While Padmashri P. R. Krishna Kumarji, aniyettan or Uncle as I called him was many things to many people, and will mostly be remembered for putting Ayurveda on the World Map, for me he will always be the most beautiful rare human being I have been blessed to know in my life. He posessed a generosity of spirit, strength of purpose and a benevolence of being far beyond anything I had ever experienced. His life was about just one thing: Purpose and for him, that purpose was Ayurveda. Though our families have known each other for years/generations, with my father having treated his father, the late P. V. Rama Warrier, till the very end, he came into my life personally as a gift when he released my book in Coimbatore in 2018..and then went on to support my work at every opportunity ever since. And its not just me, he was the pillar of strength and inspiration for so many people especially students who came his way, either from the Ayurvedic College or the Avanashilingam College that he was the Chancellor of..He had the time to listen to everybody who came to him, and he would do his best to help them. "What can I do for you?" His life was completely dedicated to the service to Ayurveda and humanity and the impact he had on both will live on..far beyond his time. Though he struggled with many health issues, his strength of mind was a source of wonderment to me as he lived an inspired life, seemingly operating on an endless source of energy...from waking up at 3.30 am in the morning and functioning on barely 4 hours of sleep every night, he lived an incredibly busy and full life packing more into his day and life than most people would in many lifetimes. He was a man with a mission and sought to make the most of every second. Time is God he would say. So while he lived a full life, on his own terms, climbed many mountains, achieved the pinnacle of success not just in the field of Ayurveda but in the hearts of people as well.. he leaves behind a vaccum in the lives of those who loved him, shoes that are too big to ever be filled???? Just grateful that our lives crossed at all. His incredible spirit will live on through all those who knew him, loved him and were blessedly touched by his radiance. ????

My Guru

I do not know where to begin. I do not have words, which is frightening for someone who always does. Krishnakumarji was my mentor in more ways than I can name. I remember the day I visited his office in Coimbatore - disheartened, uncertain about my future in Ayurveda. My first thought was, strangely, that surely his chair must have been placed on some kind of step behind his desk - for even sitting, he was taller than me. It was only later that I realized that his chair was indeed placed on the floor, and that he was, in reality, a giant of a man. This larger than life image of Krishnakumarji was not restricted to his person alone, but also his presence. He awed. His presence commanded respect. He transformed any space he was in, and filled it with warmth - genuine, unsentimental, clean warmth. It is his presence, more than anything, that I will miss - a presence that nothing can replace. The day I met Krishnakumarji, he asked me, "Do you want a degree, or do you want knowledge?". I looked long at him, and finally answered, 'Knowledge". I had dropped out of the college I was studying in after a year, and was on the verge of quitting Ayurveda, depressed with the state of my current college education. My mother had taken me to meet Krishnakumarji as a last resort - believing that if anything could change my mind, it was him. I did not know on the day I met him, that my life was about to change forever. He told me that day, that if I wanted knowledge, there were over 70 Vaidyas in the institute (the Arya Vaidya Pharmacy, Coimbatore), and that I could approach as many of them as I wanted. He opened every possible learning avenue at his disposal to me - the medicine preparation unit, rounds with doctors, consultation rooms, yoga, ongoing projects, the research centre... he created for me, in AVP, a modern day Gurukula. But he made one thing very clear - I was not to bother him with daily nitigrities. I was only to approach him for absolutely important things. Beyond having opened up this opportunity, there was nothing he could do for me. In front of me, he sent a mail to all his colleagues introducing me as a student of Ayurveda, who was there to learn. "If someone doesn't accept to teach you, it is not their fault, but you who is undeserving of it. Make yourself deserving of a Guru," he said. I did not believe he would really leave me so alone at the time, but very soon realized he actually meant every word. And there, a journey of extraordinary learning began. Over the span of one year, I learnt how to make medicines; I learnt to read, write and speak Malayalam; I studied the Ashtanga Hridaya almost completely under Vaidya Krishnan Nambiar and Vaidya Vasudevan Namboothiri; Dravyaguna with Rashmi ma'am; I studied the Hatha Yoga Pradeepika with Hari sir, and Sanskrit under Priya teacher; I got to observe and learn about Panchakarma, and interact with stalwart physicians like Vaidya KG Raveendran and even go on rounds with them occasionally. I served food everyday in the temple Annadanam hall, and occasionally even helped with cooking. My day began with Yoga. I do not say this to show off, but to describe what an extraordinary opportunity Krishnakumarji opened up for me. I found myself in the unique position of being friends with the sweepers, cooks, therapists, temple priests, junior doctors, senior doctors and Krishnakumarji. I learnt to survive. I learned to learn - with humility and tentativeness. My education in a Krishnamurti school had left me with a degree of entitlement in knowledge seeking - of course it would come to me, and I could decide what to do with it, and whether it was worth it or not. I am not decrying the value of my Krishnamurti education, but Krishnakumarji did something different - he put me in a space where I was the seeker of knowledge - I had to find the agency to learn, learn to deal with people's scorn and incredulity at my having left a college education for this, learn to go back and once again ask people to teach me, learn humility and resilience - I learnt the hard way, that in knowledge, there can be no entitlement. I learnt patience. I learnt, as Krishnakumarji would say, "in learning, you do not exist. Throw yourself out, and knowledge will come." Krishnakumarji was one of the most compassionate people I've met - he was compassionate enough to let me learn my lessons the hard way, but was always there for me in ways I cannot fathom - His pride when he heard about my college achievements, his presence in the Hridayamritam finals in 2015, his readings with me whenever he found the time - the Bhagavad Gita, Osho, Tagore, Shankaracharya ..., his constant reminder to me, even after college, that I must do something with all the knowledge I had gained, his unwavering support and questions about my career - driving me to find my calling, my path. Even if I did not see him, I always knew he was there. Krishnakumarji was always there for me. His loss means things I cannot begin to articulate. Even these many words I have written feel meaningless, for they cannot, do not capture, the man or what he meant to me. I feel as if I have lost an anchor, a foundation stone - and am engulfed in the deepest emptiness. How can you fathom something you can't see? Is it possible to feel sorrow so completely, that all words feel like faint imitations? Others will write what his many contributions to Ayurveda were, of the unparalleled visionary he was, and of his numerous achievements. But all I know is that I have lost a mentor, a guide, a friend, today, and it is a loss that can never be replaced. I pray with all my heart, that wherever he is, one of the greatest human beings I will every know, Krishnakumarji, is at peace, and that his blessings will show me the way in my darkest hours, as they always have. With the deepest love and Pranams

A tribute from our Research Scholars

We students will remember the values portrayed by our Chancellor and practice them in our life and career

Our Humble Tribute to Chancellor Ji

Chancellor Ji was the one noble soul that I was blessed to meet and acquaint with for a short span of five years. His kind gesture of recognizing, appreciating and applauding every soul around him for their good work is a noble experience that humbled us. He said" I will be with you all in all good work that you do" We miss Ji very dearly and his untimely demise can never be digested. With thoughts of his virtual presence we hope to move forward.

You are a humble man Who holds no greedy plan; Words, works were same, but Never done it for earning fame; Your lips parted in a smile, so pure Which was your all time attire; We gained knowledge by your presence Now pained by your absence; we will see your smile, in every ray of sunshine after rain! Show us a way to get rid of pain! Colours have lost their hue And our hearts are missing YOU...

Atma Shanti

Our dearest Aniyamamma????????????...such an inspiring life for all of us to remember and cherish...He celebrated life in the most positive way possible and led by example???????????? Praying for Aniyamamma's Atma Shanti????
