Namaste (Welcome)


Ayurveda gives the individual an opportunity for a balanced happy life (Svastha) and the soul, through the Ayurvedic process of joy and clarity (Sattva) and eliminates the negativity that is present in the human body. For a human body to achieve harmony (inner and outer satisfaction – Sukha), Ayurvedic-rubbing massage (Abhyangam) is very helpful. The soul is not a thought, not emotion, not perception, not performance, but that thing in us that thinks, has emotions, senses and is wrapped up in our “Karma”. The soul is consciousness and facilitator of psychological laws, which are older than any religion and philosophy. Welcome to meet and to balance four Purusharthe (Dharma, Artha, Kama, Moksha), which are the foundation of life and health. If we want to be healthy, we need to keep Dharma through the exercise of duty and responsibility to oneself and others. In order to have a creative, positive desire, we need a healthy mind and consciousness, a healthy body and a healthy perception of energy Artha. Kama is always associated with the descendants and family life, producing positive energy for everyday creative work. Even Moksha or spiritual liberation is nothing but a perfect harmony of body, mind and soul.

Namaste (Welcome) all that intuitively
feel Ayurveda in the whole wide Universe

Since 1999, the Institute of Ayurveda and Integrative Medicine, Ayur Ashram (Founder) centre and Dr. Gupta (Owner) is actively involved in South-Eastern Europe, as the connecting factor for improving the quality of life people. Specifically, we will be glad of the person / society, association that invited us to be carried out without payment of thematic lectures of: Diabetes and Nutrition, Stress and Depression, Allergies and Pranayama, Paediatrics and Gynaecology, Postoperative care – after surgery status, Migraine and Thyroid disorder status, Hormonal and Cancer status – Tantra Vedanta system to get a better understanding of Ayurvedic medicine and therapeutic programs implemented in India – the mother of all medicine.

In determining Ayurvedic processes-programs, a key role-plays conversation with the person on the first visit through the process of pulse diagnosis (Nadi Pariksha). We don’t discourage to the client the treatment to which it has been recommended by his/her personal physician or specialist. Welcome to informative days (location, where Smajo Safić Gupta, Vaidya operates in India), up Ayurvedic lectures in environments of the countries: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Slovenia, Slovakia and Serbia. Dhanvantari is the first Ayurvedic physician-surgeon and is known for Vedic tradition as a god (avatar OM Vishnu) of Ayurvedic medicine. The believers of Hinduism pray with the help of prayer for a blessing, so they can have good health and good needs in the family. Namaste (Welcome) everything you intuitively feel in the Dhanvantari country – India.

India packs a lot into a massive space, and you’ll never have time to see it all on one trip. Think about what interests you, what you like doing and how much time you have, and tailor your trip accordingly. Be realistic about how much you can fit in. Rather than trying to see the whole country, you may get more out of your trip if you concentrate on the organized trip from the Smajo Safić Gupta, Vaidya (or their assistants). However, internal flights are plentiful and inexpensive so you can hop from north to south if you want a taste of both worlds. If it’s temples you’re after, you’ll find them everywhere, but in north and central India, you’ll be truly spoiled for choice. There’s the Golden Temple in Amritsar, the erotically carved edifices of Khajuraho, Konark’s rock-carved Sun Temple, and cohorts of exquisitely hewn milk-white-marble Jain temples in Rajasthan and Gujarat. Temples in the south are something else again, with towering, statue-covered gopuram towers; there are stunning examples at Hampi, Madurai, Tiruchirappalli and Tiruvannamalai, and exquisitely decorated temple caves at Ajanta and Ellora, and Elephanta Island near Mumbai.

Fans of Islamic architecture will find some spectacular monuments in Delhi, home to the Red Fort, the mosques and minarets of the Qutb Minar complex and Humuyan’s Tomb. Nearby you can revel in more graceful Mughal splendour at Fatehpur Sikri and Agra, home of the Taj Mahal, before exploring Rajasthan’s captivating collection of Mughal forts, including Jaisalmer, the very vision of an Arabian Nights desert fortress. Head south to enjoy India’s finest beaches. Munch bhelpuri (puffed rice, noodles, green mango and a tangy sauce) on Mumbai’s Girgaum Chowpatty beach before drifting south to the sand and sun in Goa. Take your pick of the Goa beaches – Arambol, Vagator, and Palolem are top spots – or try the black sand beaches of Kovalam and Varkala in Kerala, as well as lesser-known, golden sand in the north of the state. Kerala is also famous for its meandering backwaters, where you can hire a houseboat or a canoe and let the world glide gently by. Similarly serene is beautiful Dal lake in Srinagar in Kashmir, where – depending on the security situation – you can watch the mountains rise out of the mist from the walnut window frame of a traditional wooden houseboat.

Your best chances of spotting a tiger are in the national parks of Madhya Pradesh or Rajasthan, but there are national reserves all over India where you can track down wildlife as exotic as lions (Sasan Gir, Gujarat), wild donkeys (Little Rann, Gujarat), one-horned rhinos (Assam) and wild elephants (Wayanad, Kerala), as well as abundant birdlife (Bharatpur, Rajasthan). Not quite wildlife, but certainly wild, are camel treks through the desert from Jaisalmer or Bikaner in Rajasthan. The north is a playground for adrenaline seekers, with pretty much every outdoor activity imaginable on offer in the Kullu Valley and the high reaches of Uttarkhand and Himachal Pradesh, from treks to skiing and white-water rafting. Shimla, the classic hill station, is a great place to start, as is Manali, still further north. Ideal trekking season is in September/October, after the monsoon. To take adventure up a notch, set off from Manali for the epic two-day journey (possible from mid-June to mid-September) to Leh in Ladakh, whose towering mountain peaks are criss-crossed by epic hiking trails. Rishikesh is another top spot for rafting and trekking, with a famous pilgrimage trail to four sacred mountain temples, and more treks await in mountainous Sikkim.

For religious fervour, Varanasi reigns supreme, with its ancient funeral ghats where Hindus pay their last respects to the dead beside the sacred River Ganges. But you’ll encounter India’s spiritual side all over the country, particularly at pilgrimage towns such as Ajmer and Pushkar in Rajasthan, or the Sikh holy city of Amritsar in the Punjab. If you want to get more involved, you’ll find classes in meditation and yoga almost everywhere, from the Delhi suburbs to the ashrams of Rishikesh. For Buddhist encounters, aim for Tibetan-Buddhist centres such as Leh in Ladakh and McLeod Ganj (Dharamsala), home to the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan government in exile. Many people try to cram too much into a visit to India. To get the best out your trip, concentrate on a few places rather than trying to tick off as many as possible. Seeing one place slowly can be much more rewarding than seeing loads of places, but not having time to appreciate any of them. Spend a few days in a place and you’ll be less stressed, gain a deeper understanding of where you are, and have more time to get to know the people you meet.

With over a billion locals, many parts of India are certainly crowded. The bustle and mayhem can be fun, particularly if there’s a festival in town, but it’s easy to reach the point of saturation. Fortunately, India has plenty of quiet retreats, so plan some relaxing escapes into your journey. To keep your batteries charged, spend some days or weeks in a city, followed by some days or weeks in the countryside or in a small town. For inner (and outer) peace, head south to the backwaters and beaches of Kerala, or north to India’s captivating hill stations or the Tibetan-influenced valleys of the Himalaya in Ladakh, Sikkim and Himachal Pradesh.

No one wants to get ill, particularly if you’re on a shorter trip, so it pays to take steps to avoid a dodgy tum. Never drink tap water, and steer clear of any food that may have been washed in it. As a precaution, avoid ice, ice cream, and salads and fruit you haven’t just peeled yourself. Let your stomach acclimatise for a few days before launching into a street food feast, and whenever buying street food, do a mental assessment of standards of cleanliness. Are the owners freshly cooking the food or has it been standing there for a while? Is the stall busy with lots of customers or only attracting hoards of flies?

Many travellers go veggie whilst in India, and it’s not a bad idea, as a dodgy bit of meat will do you a lot more harm than undercooked vegetables. Plus, many Indians are vegetarian, so the country offers perhaps the world’s most fabulous choice of vegetarian food. If you do eat meat, make sure it’s well cooked, and stick to stalls and restaurants that are packed with locals (the best barometer for hygiene standards). When you’re on the road, you may well find you have to use some less than sanitary toilet stops, but these don’t have to be health hazards. Toilet paper is rarely provided, but the left-hand-and-water-jug method preferred by many locals can be fine if you carry soap with you so you can wash your hands properly afterwards. Anti-bacterial wipes and anti-bacterial gel are also handy to keep in your day bag for a last minute clean up before eating with your fingers.

As well as its beauty and wonder, India has an often deserved reputation for touts, scams, and other hassles. There are ways you can reduce the chances of being overcharged or cheated, but you will have a few encounters with scammers on your trip, so keep your wits about you and remember that deals that sound too good to be true usually are. In particular, be wary of taxi and rickshaw drivers who insist on taking you to specific hotels, shops or travel agencies – the cost of their commission will added to your bill. The single most important piece of advice for any India first-timer is to try to remain calm, no matter what. Frustrations boil over easily in India, and being able to control them, take a deep breath and move on, is key to enjoying your time here. If you’re getting’s stressed about losing some money or being scammed, take a moment to consider how much you’ve really lost and whether it’s worth getting that fussed about. The most secure and cheap transportation Uber taxi – reliable driving in minutes (day or night). Just use Uber taxi to ask for a ride and it’s easy to pay by credit card or cash (www.uber.com/cities.)
