Medical Research

Research in Āyurveda

Dr. Asit Kumar Panja

integral psychology article

Nobody except one with a completely closed mind can deny that there is a wealth of knowledge available in ancient sciences like the Āyurveda. Contrary to our conventional way of looking at the advances of civilisation, it is quite possible that what we are witnessing today is a recovery after a fall from an advanced state of achievement in various forms of sciences and arts. Nevertheless these sciences have to be not only recovered but rediscovered using the methods of modern science since each age has its own dharma. This article throws light on some such aspects of research in Āyurvedic sciences. Read more...

Subhasree Ray


Recently an interaction was found between folate and DNA methylation, explaining an impaired epigenetic control of gene expression due to a deficiency of folate in diet.

MTHFR polymorphism at 677 base pair leads to less production of S — adinosyl methionine (SAM), the universal methyl donour. Read more...


The Divine Body

Sri Aurobindo

Notes on counselling

A divine life in a divine body is the formula of the ideal that we envisage. But what will be the divine body? What will be the nature of this body, its structure, the principle of its activity, the perfection that distinguishes it from the limited and imperfect physicality within which we are now bound? What will be the conditions and operations of its life still physical in its base upon the earth by which it can be known as divine? Read more...
