We live Ayurveda!
We, that is Gudrun Buchzik, Deputy Managing Director, Shantanu Banerji, Managing Director, and our dedicated team.
For us, Ayurveda is an important principle of life. We apply it to our work; our daily work with Ayurveda would not feel congruent if our actions and our products were not entirely geared towards the well-being and health of those who trust us.
„Authentically living Maharishi Ayurveda, increasing the public's knowledge of it, and being able to support our customers with top products, information, and tips, has delighted me every day for over 20 years“
Gudrun Buchzik, Deputy Managing Director
„Balance. This is the key word of Maharishi Ayurveda. Living daily life in balance, both professionally and within the family – that's what I decided to do. This is accomplished by paying attention to the body's messages, routine, and adjusting my diet to my Dosha type; in essence Ayurveda is quite simple.“
Shantanu Banerji, Managing Director
„Ayur“ means „life“ or „life span“ and „Veda“ means „knowledge“. Ayurveda is the holistic knowledge of a long and healthy life. Its origins date back thousands of years.
As a result of major cultural upheavals the holistic science of Ayurveda became fragmented until the ending of the seventies. Then the great Vedic expert Maharishi Mahesh Yogi inspired the best Ayurvedic experts from all over India, as well as Western doctors and scientists, to gather and complete the ancient traditions of Ayurveda and verify them through modern scientific methods. This complete, holistic form of Ayurveda is called Maharishi Ayurveda. He also established an international network of doctors, clinics and schools.
The first Maharishi Ayurveda product was the famous and thoroughly researched universal tonic "Maharishi Amrit Kalash". As early as 1987 the first production facilities were opened in Noida and Faridabad, India, to produce this precious rasayana in its original, pure form.
Shortly afterwards great dedication and commitment made it possible to add further rasayanas as well as natural cosmetic items, oils and ghees to the product range. Currently, we offer more than 900 high-quality and authentic Ayurveda products. All products were and are prepared strictly according to millennia-old formulas using the classical, complex and traditional production methods.
Today, Maharishi Ayurveda Products (MAP) is the leading brand for authentic, high-quality Ayurveda products. 2,000 employees in India alone are dedicated to serving the health needs of our customers. Ayurvedic experts or Vaidyas advise doctors and customers how to use our products for optimum results. In over 50 countries, including India, Germany, the USA, Canada, Japan and Australia, millions of people are enjoying the vitality and zest for life brought to them by Maharishi Ayurveda.
Unlike many other Indian production facilities, MAP India always places great emphasis on quality assurance. The most up-to-date techniques, production facilities, control systems as well as the excellent and reliable quality are the basis for the many international certificates and distinctions awarded to MAP.
The 'Golden Triangle' project
MAP is the only manufacturer of Ayurvedic products appointed to the 'Golden Triangle Partnership' project (GTP) of the Indian Health Ministry. Together with the 'Department of Ayurveda, Unani, Sidha & Homeopathy (AYUSH)', the 'Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR)' and the 'Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR)' we are working on the further dissemination of Ayurveda and growing scientific recognition.
The pivotal reason for MAP India's inclusion in GTP is its exemplary working practice: '... production units and laboratories fulfil the standards for production, and evaluation of herbo-mineral preparations and Bhasmas (Ayurvedic treatment of mineral-products) ...'
Authentic knowledge at first hand
Our cooperation partners, the German Ayurveda Association (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Ayurveda) and the German Ayurveda Academy, provide healthcare professionals and interested laypersons with first-hand information and a variety of courses and seminars. These include:
- Training and professional development
- Seminar trips
- Presentation events
- Scientific symposia
- Yoga courses
- Ayurveda cosmetic courses
A healthy, balanced lifestyle – this is an aspiration we also pursue for our own employees.
We organise work processes to take the greatest possible account of the specific needs of the individual. Mutual respect and consideration are for us natural foundations for a good atmosphere and a harmonious working environment. At our headquarters in Herkenbosch in The Netherlands we make sure all meals are freshly prepared every day and carefully constituted according to Ayurvedic criteria. We also offer our employees relaxation techniques and give them scope to perform their personal meditation.
In addition, we learn new things every day about our health and how we can promote it simply and effectively. The fact that we get to work with high-quality, naturally pure products and materials at the same time rounds off our friendly working atmosphere perfectly.
