Nothing is better than “our” story. She guides people and teaches them to become aware of their health. Smajo Safic Gupta, a Vaidya (traditional Ayurvedic therapist and doctor) and founder of the Ayur Ashram Center, has been teaching in a unique way since 1999. Through his free lectures, he does not give up his effort “not to sell Ayurveda”. People who practice Ayurvedic medicine descend into the heart of the client with great love and light and guide them on an active path of accepting life habits in strengthening their physical, mental and spiritual health. A person accepts the right and responsibility to decide for themselves their own health and life.

Smajo Safic Gupta, advocates an understanding of the importance of the environment to the human race. In their life path, every human being, through interpersonal relationships, should also know the living processes: socialization (birth, parents, environment); mystifications (abilities through which a person perceives himself and the world around him); cultivation (acceptance of the current culture and the culture of previous generations); humanization (sincerity, peace, communication and selfless help).

Smajo Safic Gupta was born to an unusual couple, a mother from Bosnia and a father from India. As a teenager, he spent spring school holidays in India, devoting much of his time to acquiring knowledge in temples. In his youth, he was actively involved in sports, basketball and successfully pursued a professional sports career. His superior talent and journey was interrupted by an injury that directed him to find the purpose of his life. In India, the land of his father and ancestors, he discovers different spiritual worlds and Eastern methods of understanding human biological balance. He focused on the study of Naturopathic Medicine through activities of practical acquisition of knowledge in Tibetan medicine – Sowa Rigpa. As a Gandhi scholar, he received his education from Ayurveda in the Ramakrishna mission of the Vivekananda community in the Indian state of Sikkim. He gained most of his practical knowledge from the Guni community (traditional healers) and the Adivasi community (tantra vedanta system), which are supported by the Indian government for their knowledge of botany and medicinal properties of plants – from their treasury of knowledge comes today’s Ayurvedic pharmacology.

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.
