International Seminar on Vedic Microbiology

Organized by : Rishi Kanva Vedic Microbiology Research Institute (Gujarat), Indian Foundation for Vedic Sciences (Delhi), VishwaDharmayatan Sansthan (Delhi).

In the first ever historic conference - “International Vedic Microbiology Seminar” held in New Delhi on 20th and 21st August 2007, experts from various fields have asserted that Vedic Microbiology has huge potential to brush aside the negative side of modern microbiology. 

Indigenous Knowledge in India is an Ocean, vast, deep & diverse. Its transmission is mostly through non-institutional means. The knowledge is passed down through a person (teacher) to person (student) process wherein the student (shishya) and teacher (guru) are associated with each other by willful and free choice.  And the ‘science of microorganisms’ i.e. Microbiology is no exception.

The ‘invisible’ world of microorganisms has enthralled human race since time immemorial. The intellectual giants of Vedic civilization - Rishis and Ayurvedacharyas had recorded their observation on microorganisms in the coded form of prose and poetry in the Vedas, Ayurveda, Puranas, Smritis, Mahabharata, and many innumerable Sanskrit texts. These ancient investigators affirmed about the potential of microorganism to cause beneficial and detrimental effect on plants, animals and humans. Vedic Rishis by dint of yogic power (soul based infinite intuition) had unveiled the science of microorganism i.e. microbiology.

Vedas are opulently endowed with the distinctive holistic principles and practices of microbiology; based on the universal law and order i.e. Rta. The Vedic suktas namely Kankotan sukta (Rigveda 1.191) by Rishi Agastya; KrimiJambhanam sukta (Atharvaveda 2.31), KrimiNashnam sukta (Atharvaveda 2.32) and KrimiGhnam sukta (Atharvaveda 5.23) by Rishi Kanva and his descendents; Rakshoghnam sukta (Atharvaveda 5.29) by Rishi Chatana; KrimiNashnam sukta by Rishi Badrayani and other such suktas provides instant insight into the microbiology. Additionally, post Vedic literatures like CharakSamhita, SusrutaSamhita, MadhavaNidana, AstangaHridaya, KasyapaSamhita, VrikshAyurveda (science of plans/ trees), Arka Prakasha and many other Sanskrit literatures drastically narrates the science of microbes in great detail. Imperatively, the ‘germ theory of diseases’ is obviously found in the Vedas and allied literatures.

For microorganisms, Vedas provides many scientific terms, prominent are - “Krimi”, “Adrishta”, “Jantuanava”, “Sudrajantu”, “Pischach”, “Durnamaha”, etc. Nevertheless, Vedic Rishis also engineered Yagna-Technology to combat known and unknown causative agents of diseases, besides enumerating large number of antimicrobial/anti-infective herbs, metals, minerals, rasayana, fermented products asava and arista (medicated liquors) etc. For the word Antimicrobial / antimicrobics, the Sanskrit texts employs the commonly used terms like KrimiNashini, Krimihar, KrimiVinash, KrimiVighatan, KrimiRipu etc .

The concept of immunity (VyadhiKshamata) is well described and vaccination was common practice. Overall, our Rishis had premeditated - how society can enjoy disease free life and remain engaged in material and spiritual progress.
