Jignasa is a pan India movement initiated by Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad to provide a common platform to address all aspects related to AYUSH systems - Ayurveda, Yoga, Unani, Siddha, Sowa Rigpa and Homeopathy.

As you all know, JIGNASA 2020 - National Arogya Fair and Internationl Conference was rescheduled to 10 - 14 June, 2020 due to the threat of COVID - 19 across India as well as all over the world. Current scenario of the spread of COVID 19 in India and especially in the cities is increasing day by day. Due to this, it has not been possible to communicate with various Government departments regarding the conference as most of the departments are involved in the management of Covid 19. For the safety of people, government has banned public gatherings and events which gather huge crowd that could spread the infection. In view of public interest, Government of India has decided to postpone the event and the rescheduled dates will be announced as soon as the Government gives the permission to conduct the event. Jignasa 2020 is expected to be conducted soon and we want to assure all the delegates that their registration along with their participation in various competitions for JIGNASA 2020 International Conference, the Sponsorships/ Co-sponsorships/ Exhibition/ Stall bookings will be valid.
In the interest of our beloved nation and health of our people, we once again apologize for the inconvenience caused and expect continued co-operation and whole hearted support for the rescheduled JIGNASA 2020 International Conference and National Arogya Fair.

Vision, Mission and Action

The philosophy, concepts & practical utility of AYUSH systems in Bharatha stands unchallenged even today despite the great advancements by leaps & bounds in medical sciences & technology.

Unfortunately, the philosophy and concepts, studied and practiced since time immemorial is still under utilized or not properly recognized particularly in the realms of Public health and Primary health care in Bharata. The immortal philosophy , time tested concepts and unchallenged principles of Ayurveda and other Bharatheeya sastras are relevant and can be practiced in any part of the world as they are governed by universal principles in tune with Nature, utilizing locally specific resources. Hence the theory and practice of particularly Ayurveda and Yoga have great role to play in achieving Sustainable Development Goals ( SDG) through Universal Health Coverage. It is in this context, when the whole world is suffering from innumerable life style diseases and mental problems, AYUSH systems particularly Ayurveda and Yoga can help and need to be practiced in every nation in the world as they are holistic.

Following the philosophy of "lokah samastha sukhino bhavantu" , Jignasa thrives to inculcate unrelentedly the deep rooted wisdom of Bharatheeya Sastras and its practice to every medical student in Bharatha and abroad. Through authentic learning and practice, Jignasa aims to instill conviction, confidence and practical skills in every budding medical student and practitioner. The immortal Bharatheeya sastras particularly Ayurveda are relevant even today, to address the health and climate challenges facing Nature and its inhabitants as a whole in today's turbulent world.

For the realisation of 'Ayushman Bharath' the mantra for Public health is 'स्वास्थ्यस्य स्वास्थ्य रक्षणम्, व्याधितस्य परिमोक्षणम् |' Sincere efforts are required from the AYUSH community to achieve Universal health coverage for a healthy world.

Aacharya Charaka has said,
" शास्त्रं ज्योति: प्रकाशार्थं दर्शनं बुद्धिः आत्मनः |
ताभ्यां भिषक् सुः युक्ताभ्यां चिकित्सान न अपराध्यति ||"

  • Empowering AYUSH students from campus to community
