It was supported by the Ministry of AYUSH.
Talking about the event, Chhagan Jangid, National President, NASYA, said, “NASYA is keen about helping Ayurveda students become better Vaidyas tomorrow. Reading Samhitas is an important requirement to grasp the knowledge of Ayurveda in its complete dimensions. NASYA took this challenge as an opportunity to come up with the unique concept of the Largest Class of Charak. This will not just motivate the students, but practitioners as well.”
Commenting on the the grand success of the event, Dr. Pooja Kohli, General Secretary, NASYA, said, “A class of this large magnitude has never been organized in the history of Ayurveda. Thousands of Ayurveda practitioners, students and dignitaries attended the event from different parts of the country. Apart from being the record breaking International Book of Records Largest Class of Charak, this day has also registered its significance as a milestone for Ayurveda to set new benchmarks in nurturing the future league of bright and learned young Ayurveda practitioners.
