Sanjay Rath Keynote: Bhiṣaja guru: Knowledge of Healing and Cure.
Bhiṣaj means medicine, a remedy, healing, sanative, curing, physician, doctor or even a healer. BAVA 2021 is a focus on the healing powers of the world which includes all this and much more. We at BAVA plan to examine the life-force symbolised by Jupiter, the Guru – hence the title Bhiṣaj Guru covers the conference. Deep within us this beautiful life-force resides taking various forms. He is Ishana and the astamurti protecting life energy in the soul. He is Dakshinamurti protecting from premature or abrupt end of the body. He is Vishnu cleansing us at every level. As jyotisha we learn the various ways in which he is constantly healing us for the sake of life itself.
