Our story


People who work in Ayurvedic medicine must with great love and light come down to the heart and soul of the client and direct them to an active path of accepting life habits that will strengthen their physical, mental and spiritual health. A person accepts the right and the responsibility to decide on his own about health – life. We need to understand every human being on his life path through the processes of socialization (parents, birth, environment); intellectualization (the abilities through which a person perceives themselves and the surrounding world); cultivation (accepting the culture of present and past generations); humanization (honesty, peacefulness, communication, selfless help).

One learns as long as they live. Sāmkhya is the oldest philosophical educational school in Hinduism, dividing the Universe into two realities: Purusha (soul-consciousness) and Prakriti (human nature). Sāmkhya is an indicator of one’s soul, which comes out of a thread – making correct conclusions, that is, the genetic code that affects the mind and consequently the life path. In Ayurveda Purusha means happiness, i.e. that one maintains and strengthens constantly their physical, mental and spiritual health. Our story through our lectures-therapies and by sharing the knowledge in Ayurveda the established/founder of the Ayur Ashram centre since 1999, Smajo Safić Gupta, vaidya (traditional Ayurvedic therapist/doctor) does not give up in his effort “not to sell Ayurveda” through the lectures which are free.

Smajo Safić Gupta, born to an unusual couple, Bosnian mother and Indian father serving at former Yugoslavia. As a teenager he was spending holidays in India, dedicating much of his time to uncovering knowledge in the centres of temples. After encountering different spiritual world and eastern methods in understanding human biological balance, he became focused to study Naturopathy Medicine. He received education in Ayurveda as a Gandhi scholar in the Ramakrishna Mission Vivekananda community in the Indian state of Sikkim. Much of the practical knowledge he gained from members of the Guni community (traditional healers) and the Adivasi (tantric system) supported by the Indian government for their knowledge of the botanical and medicinal traits of plants – from their abundance of knowledge came what is today known as Ayurvedic pharmacology.

Smajo Safić Gupta, through the Ayurvedic work within the Ayur Ashram (Founder) centre where Ayurvedic experts from India gather to work on several fields: joint work, conducting training courses and studies for Ayurveda therapists, doing workshops and lectures for the public and promoting acknowledged natural healing treatments. In his Ayurveda practice, he also uses traditional acupuncture, which is based on Naturopathy Sushiveda healing technique (one segment of Tibetan medicine – Sowa Rigpa). Since 2000, he has held a number of free workshops and given lectures in order to bring Ayurveda as close as possible to the people on the territory of Southeast Europe. He is the author of the books Ayurvedic Medicine for Physical, Mental and Spiritual Health and Adivasi, energy for a happy life; Booklets Ayurveda Masseur / Therapist and a vast number of articles on Ayurvedic medicine published in international journals or presented at professional meetings and congresses.

Smajo Safić Gupta, lasting work and activity his commitment to working with people, the desire to understand a person as well as his sense of responsibility keep inspiring him to explore the various recognized programs of natural medicine in India, Himalayas and Tibet. Ayurveda used to be passed on for generations through a chain of student heritage from a teacher to a student, like all Vedic science. When acquiring Ayurvedic knowledge, initially the teacher plays the key role, Gupta would say, but the success of it depends solely on the student who enters the “temple of knowledge”, “lives and works”, like Smajo Safić Gupta does, through the “temple of knowledge”, the knowledge that comes primarily from the clients – people we meet in life!

In our lives, there are many important things and surely, the most important thing is our health and the health of our loved ones. With a positive attitude and good interpersonal relationships, you will be the best doctor to yourself and to your loved ones. Communicate with others, have a sense of belonging, find yourself soul mates whom you can feel and establish mutual understanding with in order to achieve love and peace in your soul.
