Putting an end to debate about Ayurveda from my side

I have decided to put an end to this debate from my side now. Whenever people will ask me about it in future, I shall redirect them here.

I have said enough about it and have spent very precious time of my life thinking, talking and debating about it. But I do not find that I am getting results in proportion to efforts I have put in. If I would have put my efforts in other fields, maybe I would have gained much more than what I am getting today in my honest opinion. As a result I think that debating and even thinking about Ayurveda is a waste of time! It is like unsolved mathematical problem to me. I will be happy if I will be able to solve it, but no one can force me to solve it if I do not wish to.

My suggestion to people who feel interested by the problem is this - do it at your own risk and there is possibility of waste of time. I have really made many honest attempts but I don't understand it. It is confusing and contradictory. People in power are somehow not ready to listen anything about it. I have felt frustrated many times. I am not taking this decision to stop debating about it in one day or month. I have been thinking and reading intensely about this topic since many years. I would say since more than 13 years! So maybe there is a major flaw in the basic theories like Tridosha theory / hypothesis itself or I lack abilities to understand it.

Below I am referring to few articles, blog posts and discussions which interested people can go through. I will be updating this list time to time as and when it will be necessary.

Thanks and regards,

Dr. Abhijeet Safai
