Ayurveda was once passed down through the chain of student heritage – from teacher to student, as omniscient knowledge. In the acquisition of Ayurvedic knowledge, the teacher initially plays a key role, but the key to success depends solely on the student who enters the “Temple of Knowledge” and lives and works as does Smajo Safic Gupta, Vaidya, through the “Temple of Ayurvedic Knowledge”, knowledge that comes primarily through the students, clients, and people we meet in life in general. Smajo Safic Gupta, Vaidya, through work and activity, commitment to working with people, wants to understand the person, and his sense of responsibility keeps him inspired to explore various recognized natural medicine programs in India, in the Himalayas, Nepal and Tibet.
