Mantena Satyanarayana Raju Vijayawada Ashram Opening Ceremony



Good news for all the followers of Dr. Mantena Satyanarayana Raju’s Natural Way of Living and all the aspirants of good health. The dream project of Dr. Raju at Vijayawada finally taken shape and started its operations from January 2012. Vijayawada’s Mantena Satyanarayana Raju Nature Cure Hospital is one of the world’s biggest hospitals of its kind with the entire modern infrastructure. Though the operations of the Ashram were started in January 2012 itself, the Ashram was not officially inaugurated as the operations were not fully on due to miscellaneous work under construction. Once the sundry work is completed Dr. M.S. Raju decided to inaugurate the Ashram on the auspicious day of Ugadi, the new year of Telugu speaking people on 23rd of March 2012.

The hospital is located at a very picturesque location of Venkata Palem Village of Krishna District, Andhra Pradesh, India few kilometers away from Vijayawada Town at the banks of Krishna River. 

Countless people are behind the successful completion of this project. But the Pioneer of this wonderful project is the famous industrialist Mr. Gokaraju Gangaraju who is the Chairman of Laila Group of Industries, Nizam Sugars, Delta Sugars and Delta Paper Mills etc. Dr. M.S. Raju during his convention thanked each and every person involved in this project for their support, love and trust on him. He said Mr. Gokaraju Gangaraju is the prime factor for this prestigious project by the banks of river Krishna. He donated 18 acres of fertile lands for the purpose of this project. He helped Matena Satyanarayana Raju Charitable Trust in getting bank loans worth 12.5 crores for the purpose of the hospital from State Bank of India and Canara Bank on his personal surety. He also sponsored the Staff Quarters for the employees of the Ashram which is under construction. He always stands upfront in all the social welfare activities in Vijaywada. Apart from this he has donated lands to various institutions like Ravi Shankar’s Art of Living, Subash Patri’s Pyramid Meditation Center, ISKON Temple, Aqua devils health club and an institution for Vedic studies etc.

I am an ardent fan, follower and a disciple of Dr. MS. Raju for quite some time now. I have been writing a blog on his ‘Natural Way of Living and Mantena’s Kitchen’ on internet since 2009 with an intention to take his teachings to non-Telugu speaking people. I never imagined the blog I started to kill my spare time would gain such popularity among the internet users and the followers of Dr. M.S. Raju all over the world. The funniest part is that I never met Dr. Raju before. I knew him through his programs on TV and his books and CD’s. There was a great transformation in my life because of Dr. Raju. Some of my friends and family members insisted me to meet and tell him about my transformation. But I never seriously thought of meeting him in person, though I had a wish some where in the corner of my heart. Moreover, it was not really important to meet him in person. There was already an etheric bonding between us. It was clear in my mind, if it is there in my destiny, then I will meet him for sure.
 
Two Important dates of my Life:
I will never forget 15th of July 2011 and 22nd of March 2012. These two dates have great importance in my life and they are associated with Dr. M.S. Raju. 15th July 2011 was the day I met the Legendary Yoga Guru BKS Iyengar. I never imagined or even dreamt of meeting the Legend. Just like Dr. Raju I knew him through his books, CD’s and Videos on internet and TV. I practiced yoga through his book Light on Yoga which transformed my life. I am an Eka Lavya disciple for two of these great gurus. Please follow the link for details Guru Poornima with Legendary BKS Iyengar for details. My psychological connection was already established with them. Physical connection was left to the matter of time. Dr. Raju is directly or indirectly responsible for my association with Guruji BKS Iyengar. I had no interest in Yoga before and didn’t even know Guruji BKS Iyengar before joining Yoga. Had I not followed Dr. M.S. Raju’s Natural Way of Living I wouldn’t have developed interest in Yoga and spirituality. When I met Guruji I thanked Dr. Raju within my heart.


22nd March 2012 is the day I met Dr. Mantena Satyanarayana Raju in Vijayawada Ashram thanks to Mr. Sridhar Reddy the Mentor of NLS Yahoo Group. On 17th of March 2012, I received a message in my facebook from Mr. Sridhar Reddy providing information on the inauguration of Dr. MS. Rajus’ Vijayawada Ashram and an invitation to attend the ceremony. Though he was in my contact list for quite sometime we never had a direct conversation on facebook. Neither I nor he ever directly communicated through messages in facebook or by phone. This was the first time he left a message in my inbox. I left my mobile number to enquire few more details about the ceremony. He called me up next morning and provided all the necessary information. So Mr. Sridhar Reddy has become the established compound element in my meeting with Dr. MS. Raju. It would be unfair, if I don’t thank him for the pain he took in taking us to the Ashram and all the hospitality we received out there. He is a very kind gentleman. We never met or spoken before. This was our first meeting but he never made us feel new or uncomfortable. He treated us like his old friends known for very long time. Thank you Sridhar garu for all the kind and unforgettable hospitality.

Journey to Vijayawada:
The day finally has arrived. I booked bus tickets to Vijayawada from Hyderabad along with one of my friend Krishna Mohan and my brother-in-law Mohan on 21st March 2012. Mr. Tirupati Reddy the Mentor of Yahoo NLS Group arrived from Dubai to attend the ceremony also accompanied us in the journey.

We boarded the bus at around 10-30 PM at Hyderabad on 21st March 2012 and reached Vijayawada at 4-30 AM in the morning. Mr. Sridhar picked us from the bus station in the early hours of the morning and took us to his home nearby. We then had our showers, freshen up and had a small session of yoga practice.

My Experiences in the Ashram:


We then traveled to Dr. Raju’s Ashram in his car at around 7-30 AM. It was a breakfast time out there. We visited the dining hall and had some fine breakfast. We had half boiled sprouts, raw sprouts and some fruits in our breakfast. It was really delicious and nutritious for me and for all the followers of Dr. Raju as they are used to eat recipes without the seven elements of taste viz., Masala, Oil, Salt, Sugar, Ghee, Red Chilly and Tamarind. It was a new experience to my friend and brother-in-law. Though it was their first time eating food without those elements of taste, they had no complaints.

After breakfast we met Dr. MS. Raju who was busy making arrangements for the ceremony. Mr. Sridhar Reddy then introduced us to the Doctor. He said this is Mr. Ram Godar from Hyderabad, an Eka Lavya Shishyudu (disciple) who is writing blogs on your teachings on internet for quite some time. Dr. Raju smiled in his usual self and said Santosham (happy). Dr. Raju then enquired about our accommodation and moved away for making arrangements.

We then moved to Dr. Raju’s house in the second block which is his temporary residence to meet his wife Dr. Vishala Raju. This was my first time to see her. She was looking beautiful and very simple in white clad saree, with a soft spoken voice like her husband. It is rightly said, there is a woman behind every successful man. There is no doubt she is the mentor behind all the success of Dr. Raju. She always worked behind the scene for the success of Dr. Raju. NLS Yahoo group members were having a meeting with the madam, so we decided to have a look around the Ashram and moved out.


I along with my friends walked through the banks of river Krishna, where every arrangement is being made to enjoy the nature. Few beautiful kuteers (huts) were built reminding the architecture of Vedic times of the past. We had great time enjoying the river and the atmosphere out there. When we were moving all over the ashram taking pictures, we noticed Dr. MS. Raju working in the fiery hot Sun directing the volunteers and workers. He was personally looking after each and every minute work that was going on out there. In the mean time, he came across us and asked, “Hmmmm! How do you find the ashram? Are you enjoying?” We said, yes sir, we loved it. After a short conversation he again left saying we shall meet again later as you are supposed to stay.

We then walked into the Library which was made with dry grass. It looks like the replica of Schools or Libraries in the Vedic periods. It was so cool inside without any fan, air-cooler or air-conditioner. The Vijayawada temperature was unbearable to us. The moment we entered the Library room we felt a sigh of relief.

My Association with NLS Yahoo Group Members:
Mr. Sridhar and company joined us at the Library after their meeting with Vishala madam. Mr. Sridhar then introduced to some of the NLS Yahoo group members, some of whom have come all the way from Pune, Bangalore etc. I was surprised to know that Mr. J.K. Mehta from Pune, Mr. Nivas from Bangalore already knew me through my blogs. Mehta Ji was really excited to find me there and I also enjoyed his company very much. Mr. Tirupati Reddy and Sridhar Reddy knew me through one of their fellow member Smt. Archana Kolla from USA with whom I used to interact in facebook from time to time. Anyway it was a great association exchanging information and knowledge on various aspects of Dr. Raju’s Natural Way of Living. We missed Archana this time. Hope to meet you in near future with more mentors and moderators of Yahoo Group.


After some chit chat we decided to go for lunch. We had phulkas, brown rice, couple of varieties of salads and fruits. After lunch we got an opportunity to meet Mr. Venkatapathy Raju, the elder brother of Dr. MS. Raju. It is said that the entire administration and management work is looked after by Mr. Venkatapathy Raju. Dr. MS. Raju is the programmer and Venkatapathy Raju is the executor of all their works. It was heartening to see such a bonding between two brothers. One of the dignitaries in his speech said that in Aryan times, Lord Sri Ram had the younger brother Lakshman as his right hand but Dr. MS. Raju has the elder brother Mr. Venkatapathy Raju as his right hand.


We then walked into the kitchen room. On walking through we found "Welcome to Healthy Kitchen" written on the entrance doors of the Kitchen room. There was a big hall to cut vegetables and fruits, separate store rooms for storing grains, pulses, vegetables and fruits, well equipped grinders, juicers and chapati makers etc essential for making mass meals. The entire premise was maintained very clean, tidy and hygienic. Lot of activities were going on at the time. Group of women was making preparations for the dinner, some were preparing sweets for the inauguration ceremony, some were preparing carriages for patients who cannot walk to the dining hall, some were making chapatis or rotis etc.


We later decided to take a nap for sometime. Since our rooms were not yet finalized we decided to take rest in the kuteers (huts) built by the side of river Krishna. After couple of hours of rest we moved to Yoga hall where arrangements were being made for the ceremony next morning. We also helped our hands in making arrangements and decoration till 7-30 PM. We then had our dinner containing different varieties of fruits. At around 8-30 PM we were allotted the VIP suite with central A/c on the fifth floor of Prithvi Bhavan. The suite was really beautiful with a picturesque view of lush green agricultural fields to the end of our sight from the balcony. We then gone to bed at around 9-30 PM.

Amazing utilization of Man Power:

We woke up early at 4 AM in the morning and followed the daily routine of drinking 1.5 liters of water and cleaning the bowels by 4-30 AM. At around 4-45 AM, when I looked out from the balcony the entrance gate was neatly decorated with flowers and banana leaves and branches. Mr. Venkatapathy Raju was personally looking after the decoration work. I then picked my digi-cam and walked down-stairs to have some pictures. When I came out of the building, I realized hundreds of volunteers and workers had worked the entire night without sleep to make the ceremony a grand success.

The opening ceremony was few hours away and still there was lot of work to be done. Hundreds of volunteers and workers were putting their all out effort to finish their task. I had never seen so many volunteers working on a single platform with a single motto of serving the cause of Dr. MS. Raju. Since it was a prestigious project of Dr. Raju, no body wanted to leave any stone unturned. It was not an easy task as all the decorations are made with natural fruits, vegetables, plants, flowers and leaves in a vast area of the Ashram. The traditional village atmosphere of Ugadi festival, the new year of Telugu people was clearly seen. No artificial items of decoration were utilized. By the time of the Muhurat of inauguration every thing was complete and ready.

I experienced the true utilization of man power for the first time in such a large scale. The work was so brilliantly distributed and conducted, all kudos to the entire staff, volunteers and workers of Dr. Mantena Satyanarayana Raju Aarogyaalayam, Vijayawada.

Inauguration Ceremony:

The inauguration of Dr. Mantena Satyanarayana Raju Aarogyaalayam was held on 23rd of March 2012 at 9-30 AM on the auspicious day of Ugadi – the new year of Telugu speaking people. Mr. Murthy Raju garu, the freedom fighter and ex MLA is 94 years young and a follower of Natural way of living for the last 60 years was the chief guest of honor for the occasion. He was personally received at the entrance by Raju brothers with great respect. Mr. Murthy Raju cut the ribbons and opened the Mantena Satyanarayana Raju Aarogyaalayam at 9-30 AM, Prithvi Bhavan at 9-40 AM and Yoga hall at 9-45 AM amidst Vedic mantra chanting and applauds from the crowd.


Speaking on the occasion Dr. Raju said that Mr. Murthy Raju has been following the Natural Way of Living for the past 60 years. Even at this age of 94 he has a clear sight and sound. He still reads on his own and needs no hearing aid to listen. Nature Cure and Natural Way of Living has a great importance in his life. It was under his term as a Minister, Naturopathy was recognized as a Medical Science by the Government of Andhra Pradesh and India. He basically belonged to a big Zamindar family of West Godavari District. He received 1800 plus acres of land from his parents. But today he had no single land on his name. He donated everything he had for the development of schools, colleges and hospitals. He established more than hundred schools but no school, hospital or trust is named after him. They are all named after the great national leaders of India. Such a great donor he is. Dr. M.S. Raju used to meet him occasionally and inform him about his work on Naturopathy from time to time. Inspired by Dr. M.S. Raju’s effort and selfless services to the society Mr. Murthy Raju requested Mr. Gokaraju Gangaraju to provide some land to establish a nature cure hospital. Mr. Gokaraju Gangaraju respectfully obeyed his request and visited Dr. Raju personally and offered the land in Vijayawada for the establishment. Dr. M.S. Raju was then working in Jubilee hills area of Hyderabad. Initially Dr. M.S. Raju was reluctant to leave the city like Hyderabad and relocate at some other place. But after visiting the place and watching the site near Krishna River, he felt this is the ideal place for Nature Cure Hospital and shifted his base to Vijayawada. This was how the journey began.


Later, Dr. MS. Raju thanked each and every individual responsible for the establishment of this prestigious project. He explained about the challenges during the construction of this project and how they overcome those challenges. He also provided information on the treatment, infrastructure, atmosphere and other details of the Ashram.
At the end of the ceremony two books written by the members of NLS Yahoo Group under the guidance of Dr. Vishala Raju has been launched.

Vijaywada Ashram at a Glance:


The hospital consists of five blocks of five storied building each. Dr. Raju has named each building after the pancha maha bhootaas or five elements of nature which are the main source of human survival. The first block is Prithvi Bhavan – the element of Earth, second block is Jal Bhavan – The element of Water, The third block is Vaayu Bhavan – the element of Air, the fourth block is Tej Bhavan – the element of Fire and the fifth block is Aakash Bhavan – the element of ether or space. Naming of the blocks itself conveys a strong message of health. Imbalance in any of these elements of nature in our body leads to diseases or disorders. You visit here to correct these imbalances of five elements of nature through various methods of treatment. As you all know that nature cure treatment doesn’t contain any sort of medicines. Diseases are cured and healed through natural processes utilizing these five elements of nature.

I must say that Vijayawada Ashram of Dr. MS Raju is a fusion of state of the art modern technology and ancient medical science of naturopathy. If you look at the administration work it is at par with corporate entities. On the other hand the appearance of the ashram and treatment methodology is of the ancient India.

Prithvi Bhavan is completed and fully functional at the moment. 90% of the work at Jal Bhavan is completed and is partially functional. The work is still on in Vaayu Bhavan, Tej Bhavan and Aakash Bhavan. The work is stagnant in most part of these three blocks due to scarcity of funds.

Note:
  1. Once the patient is admitted in the hospital, he/she is not allowed to go out of the Ashram premises. Even the visitors are not allowed to enter the premises during the term of the camp. Visitors are allowed only up to the specially built up visitors area by the banks of river Krishna. This is done to stop the flow of outside eatables into the Ashram premises.
I tried my best to provide detailed and correct information to the best of my information and knowledge. Any discrepancies are please forgiven. This is it for now. Keep watching the space for more updates.

    2. Well my dear friend Sudhir! It is good that you got such a thought but restaurant is a business and to be honest, personally I feel people would not come and enjoy such food in a restaurant. You can though open a catering center where you can cater those dishes on demand.

  3. I love this blog. I was wondering about edema and water retention. I have struggled with this my whole life but i havent noticed before resently this year. I always thought i was just fat or big boned/muscle but it seems like i store alot of water in my body. When i drink water it just goes down to my legs and i hold on to the water. I dont eat any salt etc i just eat fruit and veggies. I have only been eating this lifestyle for 1 year but i havent done the 6+ liters of water a day. Will drinking this much water help with my condition? i also work out 2 times a day so i need more water but is this good for weak kidneys aswell? Maybe i need more water to flush out all the crap that is holding the water inside me or ? Im 26 years old male

  5. I respect Raju Sir and his methods of natural curing. I am a great fan of Raju Sir. But everyone should have open mindset and welcome any changes and learnings. I want to give a personal and scientific opinion on one of Raju sir's prescription that one should cut down salt completely and salt is equal to poison. I feel this is highly highly dangerous. If there is no proper levels of salt in the body, it will become weak, all chemical reactions that have to happen will not happen. The person will become extremely weak. One of the first protocol the doctors do on a weak patient is to put saline bottle nothing but injecting salt water into the blood.

    If you look at the history, there are wars for salt. If you look at the human evolution, human beings used to eat raw meat of animals which used to provide sufficient sodium for our survival. But once human beings started to live on plants there is a great deficiency of sodium for our bodies. All types of ills will reach those people who takes less salt. Salt is the first antiboitic in our body. Visit www.saltinstitute.org for more details. Less intake of salt can trigger diabetes in human beings, less blood, less bone mass, weak personality, fussyness, eyes burning, demineralization of tooth,bones all over. Just drinking water will not help anybody. Drink water with sugar and salt to have a balance. Just look at Electral powder, the WHO's advice for water balance in our body. Drinking liters of water will help nothing. It is salt which keeps your body hydrated and retains enough water that is important for the body. Two to three glasses of water is sufficient for our body if proper salt levels are inside. God has given thirst indicator to indicate when to drink water. For vegetarians it is much more important to have more salt in the food. Otherwise they are doing a mistake of their life time. Please don't encourage to cut down salt. The word "salary" that we take as employees came from the word "salt". Salt is highly required for human body. Our kidneys can process upto 10 mg of sodium in a day. Cutting down on salt is not at all advisable. One of the primary reason why village people are much stronger than city dwellers is that the villagers take higher amount of salt comparing to city dwellers. Same is the reason why village children are much healthy and their eye sight is good. I can tell lakhs of benefits of salt. Only one disadvantage is that if the doses become too high it may lead to little bit of blood pressure because your blood volumes might have gone up due to high sodium. This generally happens in very rare case with heavy salt item eaters. Most of the blood pressure complaints are the result of lack of exercise, stress, obesity. Read salt institute's website from first to last page. I myself experimented with less salt, high salt, medium salt. The results are astonishing. Once I started with no salt technique, my tooth started demineralizing and i have become anemic. Medium to high salts are much better than low salt diet. You conduct on yourself and take all blood, urine, weight tests. I challenge you that human beings much better with medium to high salt intake. I beg you not to do marketing on low salt diet. This will be the most retrograde step in human history.

    I don't want you to publish this in the blog which may give a wrong feeling about Raju sir's advises. He is one of the greatest personality we ever had. who is caring about our health. I don't have any problem with any of his other advises, but not on salt. But send this important message to Raju Sir.

  6. sorry i have written 10 mg of salt. It is 10 grams of salt in a day. Our table salt contains 60 to 65% of sodium only. The minimum requirement of body as per WHO's guidelines is 2 g of sodium. However our kidney's can process upto 10 grams of salt which may contain 6 to 7 grams of sodium.

  7. After going through your information thoroughly I can only say that you are not completely aware of Dr. Raju's teachings and his recipes. Half knowledge is always dangerous not the salt. When Dr. Raju is promoting salt free food, it doesn't mean that he is not aware of the benefits of minerals which you are referring to as salt. iron, zinc, copper, selenium, iodine, fluorine and chromium, sodium, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, sulphur, cobolt and chlorine. These are all salts and are very essential for your body metabolism as you mentioned above. Dr. Raju is not opposing the use of these salts. He is only opposing the intake of sodium through table salt. As you said and the doctors say, you need only 1 gram of sodium salt per day and people are simply using it in abundance just to please their tongue causing several problems Dr. Raju is promoting anti salt motion. It doesn't mean that Dr. Raju is not aware of the problems you can get with no salt. He is very much aware of it. You have seen one side of the coin of Dr. raju opposing the use of salt. But you have not seen the other side where he is promoting the food that contains rich substitutes of salt. I recommend you to personally visit the Vijayawada Ashram where cooking classes are being conducted to understand their cause and the hard work behind it. This way you can meet Dr. Raju personally and clarify all your doubts as well. Don't think it as a personal comment and try to get clarity on the subject at the earliest.

  15. Ram garu,

    Are you aware of any youngsters ages 18-24 from US using the obesity camp in Vijayawada? If so any know digestive track issuse, since most food served is in raw form. Since kids from America are not exposed to the environment and don't have immunity, we are concerned. But seriously considering joining the obesity camp in July or August. Please advise and/or provide a contact number

    1. You need not worry about those issues. There are well experienced doctors to take care of every problem. If you are from US, why can't you be the first one to experience yourself instead of trusting the testimony of others?

  23. I've called up the ashram this morning and the rates are revised it seems. The twin sharing room for 1 month is 22,000 and the single room is 30,000. I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings here. Are the rates not too high? Where is the social welfareness in this? Isn't it a profit oriented community?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I agree with the fact that it is not a social welfare. Rs. 700 per day with accommodation, 3 meals a day along with treatment at the best is well worth. You don't call it a profit making community once you experience the facilities in the Ashram. When you are running such a big organization you at least have to meet the expenses and stay safe in the margin to run the hospital further.

    2. Raghurama Raju from Banaglore- Ram it is great effort you are putting and helping many people. I am like you who has inspired by Dr. MS Rajugaru, after hearing and seeing him in MAA TV. I bacme his disciple and advising the needy to follow his way of life and a few are interested to go to Vijayawada for treatment and to know how to leave with out medicines.
      My wife is going to join the Arogyalaya on 16th of this month. I am also going along with her to see Dr. MS Raju and his wife Vishala Raju. A few in the present days can devote their lives for the society like these two. I hope, they will be available on 16th Novenmber in the Ashram. I wish, I will also join in coming years and do my part of service to Man/Womankind.

    I came across the "Cookery Book" App containing the Healthy recipes of Dr. Manthena Satyanarayana Raju garu in Food & Dining section of Windows App Store. This is the best Cook Book App, that I ever have come across. This App helped me to personalize the Cook Book with my OWN NAME. I could consolidate all my recipes at one place and I could share them with my friends and relatives. I could add the recipes of my choice with pictures to this Cook Book, so that I can have all my recipes at one place. Its search function and the ability to create Virtual Books at will make this App the best in the category.
    The add-on virtual book to this app containing the healthy recipes of Dr. Manthena Satyanarayana Raju garu and his health tips are really useful to all of us. I sincerely thank those involved in creating such an app that is of daily use to me and my family. I am sure that this add-on Virtual book containing the recipes of Dr. Mantena Satyanarayana Raju will be a big hit with each one of us.

    1. Dear Vikrant! You said, you feel that you have planter fasciitis. Have you not diagnosed your problem? An x-ray would do that. If you are diagnosed then there are good remedies in yoga which you have to do for some long time. Another thing is that you need to avoid wearing shoes. If you are flat footed add a cushioned arch to your chappals.
