This session is dedicated to countless Ayurvedic practitioners of the past from Kerala. Ayurveda would not flourish without the selfless service of those countless vaidyas who have defied all odds to extent their hands to the poor and needy with their knowledge.
All of the practitioners are well versed in both Sanskrit and Ayurveda. Ayurveda and Sanskrit are closely linked with each other. Some of them have made the efforts to make the knowledge available in local Malayalam language.
Only a few of the acharyas of the past are listed here. We also bestow before the thousands of other Ayurveda practitioners, about whom we have no reference or solid knowledge.
