About : 

  • AYUSH systems of healthcare form the foundation of India’s Medical Heritage. These systems are not merely sciences of disease and drug, but have their conceptual spheres touching every aspect of life. Path-finding visionaries have appeared in each of the different streams of AYUSH systems at different times in history and made valuable contributions to the growth and development of respective practices.
  • Department of Posts is bringing out Commemorative Postage Stamps on 12 such Master Healers from different streams of AYUSH systems.
    • Swami Kuvalayananda: A pioneer in scientific approach to Yoga, Swami Ji was instrumental in making it more acceptable to the modern world through his research work on Yoga techniques. He published the first journal devoted to scientific investigation into yoga, namely Yoga Mimamsa. His work established the positive impact of Asana, Shatkarma, Bandhas and Pranayama on humans. Kaivalyadhama Yoga Institute founded by him in 1924 continues to work for the upliftment of society through the application of Yoga in various spheres of life.
