Q: Who is a scientist?

Ans: A scientist is the one who is absorbed in science to explore the truth

Q: What is Science?

Ans: Science refers to a body of knowledge which incorporates the Laws of Nature

Q. Is Ayurveda a Science? Why?

Ans: Yes, it is. Because it is a well-systematically organized body of knowledge of life and human beings in their entirety.

Q. Why do modern scientists not consider Ayurveda as Science?
Ans: Modern scientists probably do not know Ayurveda and Science as well.

Q: For years, Ayurveda has been addressed as Tradition; what is the reality and why?
Ans: The reality is that it is not. The reason is that science cannot be a tradition as Science follows innate logics while tradition follows beliefs and experiences

Q: They call it Traditional Science?
Ans: When Tradition is not Science and vice versa, is it fair to mix them?
Q: No. Unfair

Q: What is SBEBA?

A: Science Based Evidence Based Ayurveda

Q: You told me that Ayurveda is itself a Science. Then why do you need to address Science -Based Evidence Based Ayurveda?

A: Why is your name Mr. X Varma when everyone surrounding you knows that you belong to the Varma community?
Q. For everyone to recognise me as Varma

A. The same applies here. For everyone to recognize Ayurveda as Science and not something else, the name SBEBA is given.

Q. Everyone is telling that the introduction of SBEBA is a marketing strategy

A. Is adding your caste name to name for marketing yourself or to reveal your identity?
Q. No

Q. How does SBEBA differ from conventional Ayurveda?
A. Conventional Ayurveda does not practice Ayurveda as it is while SBEBA does. That is the difference

Q. Do you have evidence to show this?

A. Do you have evidence to show that you are not Mr. G?

Q. Yes. I have my identity card to prove

A.  Mr. G if manipulated the details of his identity card as yours, then how will you prove it?
Q. I can present Mr. G right beside me and show the proof

A. Similarly, SBEBA can present conventional Ayurveda by its side and show directly that both are different. Quality of Actions and their impact in the patients are the proof of identity of medical practice. Genuine and fake practices can be thus differentiated.

Q. But all are genuine qualified Ayurveda doctors right; who learn the science of Ayurveda?
A. If you are good at problem-solving in Mathematics but your friend is bad in the same while both of you are graduating in the same discipline, does your discipline of graduation merely ensure that you both do right and fair problem-solving? 

Q. No; for that, we need to know accurate problem-solving techniques and do it correctly. Knowing and doing in the right manner is important to judge right

A. SBEBA teaches that right manner of doing while conventional Ayurveda does not and hence the former is only Ayurveda as it is

Q. I believe that everyone has to learn correctly

A. Ofcourse yes, it is every student’s right to secure the right knowledge. That happens only by quality professional education and training to students and physicians and for that SBEBA is developed and training programs are conducted in the same.

Q. But senior physicians say that after coming out of college, learning starts and you need to learn practice by sitting with elderly physicians

A. Can you learn Mathematics problem solving by sitting along with veterans of Mathematics and copying what they do?

Q. No. For that, I need to learn myself by knowing how to do

Q. Again, they say that theory and practice are different. Is it so?
A. Theory is what is intended to be practiced and an accurate mode of practice verifies the truth in theories. You learn physics theories in the classroom and then go to the lab to verify the truth in the same. Right? What you do in the lab has no connection with what you learned in class?

Q. They are connected

Q. One last question- What is this scientific temper? How does SBEBA see that?
A. Scientific temper refers to adopting the innately logical methods of a particular science in problem-solving by the concerned science. When you have a scientific temper, you analyze an observation/phenomenon logically and interpret it based on the innate logic of science. So the phenomenon is explored in a scientific manner (logically accepted manner of science and devoid of personal bias) thus making it completely transparent and reproducible. SBEBA cultures scientific temper in Ayurveda professional community

Q. Thank you. I will come later with more queries

A. My pleasure and duty and welcome
