'From Sensation to Synergy' is a
mega seminar on homeopathy that will be conducted on January 10th
and 11th at Bajaj Auto's headquarters near Pune. It will be chaired
by Dr. Rajan Sankaran. He is a global thinker on homeopathic system of
medicine. It is expected that about 500 doctors and students will be present at
Rajiv Bajaj, Managing Director of
Bajaj Auto holds immense passion for science. He declares with least hesitation
that Dr. Sankaran is the best of homeopaths in the world. "He is truly the
pioneer and has taken it forward which includes all the latest advances in the
last 20 years. He is now our doctor and a very close friend," says Rajiv Bajaj.
'Prana' has been set up recently to
combine yoga and homeopathy. It is the first of its kind in the world. The
passion for science has brought both fields together through this center.
Dr. Rajan runs his very own
institute 'The Other Song' (TOS) in Mumbai and Bajaj Auto supports Prana, the
At Prana, the patient first
consults a homeopath and gets suitable remedies for his ailment. After which,
he can take a walk to meet the yoga expert who will suggest appropriate
pranayamas or asanas to practice. This may involve changes in daily diet. "By
combining the homeopathic remedy and the asanas, you can become a healthier
person," Bajaj says.
When asked Rajiv Bajaj about his
source of inspiration, he mentions BKS Iyengar in Pune who recently passed
away. "He was my teacher and his student, Amit Pawar, is now my teacher and
looks after the yoga side of Prana," he says.
"There is no doctor like Dr Rajan
and his ability to get it right the first time is unbelievable. To talk to him
for an hour is an experience. This was equally true for Guruji," Bajaj says.
Both places, Prana and TOS insist
on creating high-quality teachers and doctors. People will begin to take it as
vital if results become repeatable. The survival of this science depends
greatly on the success of results. This calls for best practises from teacher
"Guruji's entire emphasis was to
create good teachers of yoga. Dr Rajan's (emphasis), beyond research and
treatment of patients, is to train and educate good homeopaths," Bajaj says.
There is one challenge in this
pursuit. Since the combination of yoga and homeopathy is an artistic process,
it looks into individualism. This can cause homeopaths to err with growth and
almost all things become commercial. "By definition, artistic things cannot be
scaled up like mechanical things be it pizzas, burgers, gyms, fitness centres
and the like," Bajaj says.
"They try to scale up homeopathy on
the lines of allopathy but it cannot be done. It requires understanding the
person for which the skills required are so intricate and subtle with so many
nuances that it is much tougher and will take years," Bajaj says.
