Mrityunjay Mission announces its Eighth Training Course in Marma Science and Therapy, the ancient method of maintaining health and treating disease through stimulation of vital points in the body. The course will be conducted under the leadership and guidance of Dr SK Joshi, senior Ayurvedic Physician and Surgeon.
Marma Science is an ancient medical science and remained ‘hidden’, gupta vidya, for a long time, known only to kings and as methods for warfare. But it was also the basis for many religious practices and a healing art. This aspect was lost in antiquity and though known in modern times to some practitioners in a limited way; its full scope for healing and scientific basis remained unknown. Prolonged research yielded a major breakthrough in Marma Science and provided a powerful therapy for Mrityujay Mission’s work. Marma Science is based on the Sushruta Samhita and the 107 vital points in the body, which can be anatomically located in the five constituents of ligament, blood vessel, nerve, muscle and bone. Energizing these vital points through pressure from trained therapists and follow-up by others can stimulate the brain centers that control organs and limbs and set right diseases as well as relieve pain. Like Yogic practice, regular self-marma therapy / practice can maintain health in a healthy individual and gradually awaken spiritual centers.
Marma Science has been an untouched chapter of Indian surgery, having its genesis in the Susruta Samhita. It is an ancient knowledge that has been researched and brought down to the present. Establishing, spreading and utilizing this knowledge for treatment is a major objective of Mrityunjay Mission.
Venue: Prem Nagar Ashram, Haridwar, Uttarakhand.
Dates: 28th April – 2nd May 2014
