He was speaking on the occasion of laying the foundation stone for the Mahayogi Guru Gorakhnath AYUSH Vishwavidyalaya at Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh today.
Addressing the gathering, the President said that many traditional and non-conventional systems of healthcare and healing have been prevalent in our country since ancient times.

“The Government of India has made continuous efforts for their development. For the systematic education and research of these systems of medicine, the Ministry of AYUSH was formed in 2014,” President said.

He noted that the Government of Uttar Pradesh had also established the Department of AYUSH in 2017. He was confident that with the establishment of the Mahayogi Guru Gorakhnath AYUSH University, AYUSH medical institutes of the state would be able to do better work in their respective fields by being affiliated with this university.

The President said that it is believed that Baba Gorakhnath has been one of the pioneers who have prepared medicines from minerals and metals as emergency medicines. Therefore, the naming of this University as “Mahayogi Guru Gorakhnath Ayush Vishwavidyalaya” is quite appropriate.

The President said that India is the best example of unity in diversity. People of India do not hesitate in adopting whatever is in the public interest, beneficial and accessible to all. The practice of different types of medical systems in our country is also the result of this thinking. Yoga, Ayurveda and Siddha are India’s contributions to the world.

“Today, the idea of Integrative System of Medicine is being recognized all over the world. Different medical systems are helping in curing the people as a complementary system to each other,” said President Kovind.

The President said that although the tribal society has a rich tradition of knowledge of herbs and herbal medicines, in the past two decades, the popularity of AYUSH systems of medicine has increased across the country.

“The demand for medicinal herbs and plants has surged which is resulting in increasing income of farmers and forest dwellers as well as generating employment,” President said.

He expressed confidence that the establishment of Mahayogi Gorakhnath AYUSH University in Gorakhpur would further boost the education and popularity of AYUSH systems.
