About GAF

Dear Friends,

Greetings from Global Ayurveda Festival 2020!

Civilizations have endorsed intellectual conclaves as their existential necessity. When great minds met history was made…or unmade. Powerful thoughts have changed the course of politics, countries and mankind. Whenever human being felt it difficult to “be”, guiding thoughts have come as saviors. It was this profundity in a blessed few that helped the advent of Ayurveda from its celestial abodes, as the myth exalts. An impeccable system of thinking and communicating kept this sastra alive, helping it keep an unbroken continuity, helping it trounce intimidating invasions and innumerable adversities. Let us salute those masters and their minds!

The sparks of the quest for knowledge and experience have expunged all boundaries and we stand with our traditional wisdom facing a global community represented by simple clientele to serious scientists. We are happy to invite you for the Global Ayurveda Festival IV, planned to make the most needed dialogue to happen on Ayurveda in a contemporaneous setting. It will be for 5 days from 16 to 20 May 2020.  Angamaly, Kerala will become the venue for us to see new dreams about Ayurveda and to get guided to materialize them.

This year's GAF will have three major components, an International Seminar, a Global Ayurveda Exhibition and an International Cooperation Conclave.

Centre for Innovation in Science and Social Action (CISSA), in association with the governmental and non-governmental bodies, is organizing this Global Ayurveda Festival. As in the previous Festivals, we are bringing together the best for the Ayurveda fraternity– to learn, to experience, to collaborate, to progress and to expand. It will be an event that meets the needs of all - from students to scientists, from practitioners to policy makers and from educationalists to entrepreneurs.

Welcome – the World of Ayurveda is waiting!
