Smritiveda is a platform for promoting smriti meditation, an Ayurvedic Psychotherapy technique.
The founder of the Smriti meditation is Dr. K V Dilipkumar
Ayurveda identifies root cause of the disease as Prjnaparadha (intellectual blasphemy). Piled up emotions interlocked with memories from our childhood to till date can influence the responses of body and mind. That determines our physical and mental health. Ayurveda considers that every individual is capable of being aware of negative emotions within them and transform into positive. Unfortunately in modern times we trained not to look inward. This lack of internal awareness is the major cause of many psychosomatic diseases.
Smriti meditation is a unique technic developed to transcend to subtle layers of our being. A person trained in smriti meditation can give interactive guidance for a smooth transfer to the deeper layers. This helps the person to identify the root cause of the disease and uproot them.
This is an effective method in all most all psychosomatic diseases like migraine, arthritis, asthma, thyroiditis, insomnia, panic attacks, depression, phobias, irritable bowel syndrome etc.

Science behind the Smriti meditation
Ancient sages of India through their scientific search on the secrets of health and disease, evolved the great medical system called Ayurveda and contributed to the humanity. They had a clear understanding of human existence, from a holistic point of view that portrait the gross body to the subtlest consciousness. The description of the mind, mental ailments and psychosomatic diseases of Ayurveda are unique when compared with the other medical systems in the world. Smriti meditation is a guided interactive psychotherapeutic meditation technique developed based on the descriptions in Caraka Samhita.
Emotions like irresistible attachment, anxiety, delusion and restlessness are identified as the primary cause of the disease. This happens out of the intellectual error (prjnaparadha) which is the primordial factor.
The etio-pathology of diseases is interwoven in body and mind. Any act committed due to lack of intellect (dhee), will to constraint temptations (dhriti) and impaired memory (smriti) of past experience is considered as the intellectual error (prjnaparadha) if it causes an untoward effect. This may be reflected as the disturbances at the psychological level which in turn may result in psychic, somatic or psychosomatic diseases. This happens due to the individually or collectively increased mental doshas raja and tamas. Ayurveda suggests Jnana (knowledge), Vijnana (specific knowledge), Dhairya(courage for sensory control) Smriti (memory) and Samadhi (meditation). These five components give the comprehensive understanding of the Ayurvedic Psychotherapy tools (satvavajaya chikitsa). Among this Smriti is a powerful one in exploring the deeper layers of consciousness. The exploration in deeper layers is rather difficult and sometimes painful but helps to change the attitude and clears emotional blocks very rapidly.
Smriti meditation conceives all the five components of the Satvavajaya chikitsa with special emphasis on smriti and samadhi. It helps to recognize the disease pathology of psychosomatic diseases at a level of mind and can be used as a powerful tool to break the chain of etiopathogenesis. The reversal of the pathogenesis will result in the cure of the disease. In healthy individuals, especially in the vulnerable group, it will be useful to prevent them before manifesting the psychosomatic diseases at physical level. Hence it is very important to promote practice of meditation as a primary prevention in controlling psychosomatic diseases.
Develop and popularize various psychotherapy techniques based on the Ayurveda classical literatures.

Dharma is in social terms is rightly expected social dutyof a person by others. It may differ from person to person. A doctor should be responsible of saving the life of others, parents should be responsible to bring up the children, soldier should safeguard the security of the country, and a politician should be responsible for the welfare of the people. Choice of our dharma should not be out of social pressure or just to make more money or to get more fame and recognition. One should intuitively identify his own dharma when he is not influenced by ego. The real dharma makes one happy, will not cause discomfort to others and one could contribute something good to the society. Psychologically the dharma is the basis of our personality. The challenge of the dharma (called adharma) from internally leads to feeling of guilt. Self-analysis of our actions distinguishes dharma and adharma. If the judgement is against oneself, feeling of guilt evolves and gives internal warning to stop and rectify the wrong actions. Offence is also an emotion evolves out of challenge on the value of dharma. Here the challenge is facing externally from another person or a situation. Here in this situation the person feels that he is a victim and expected ratification from other side. The situation leads to helplessness and manifest as anger or sadness.

What is Smriti Meditation?
Smriti meditation is a guided interactive therapeutic meditation technique. It is an easier and effective method to guide patients to deep consciousness to reveal the etiological factors of their own illness. This recognition will be a partial solution to their emotional and physical problem which helps in the healing process. Smriti meditation assists even an inexperienced or ill person to overcome all the obstacles that prevent the path of progress to the ‘Samadhi’. In repeated practices of meditation when negative emotions settle down, mind become tranquil and the person transcends to more subtle layer of existence. In this state there is harmony between body and mind.
How to do Smriti Meditation?
Meditator is asked to lie in a sleeper/ semi sleeper couch in supine posture. Instructions are given to relax all the muscles starting from toe to head to attain a state of deep relaxation in comfortable pose. Then the guide starts an interaction with the meditator through detailed narration and discussion. During the process the person expands awareness of the environment, body postures, internal organs, function, thoughts and emotions through multidimensional observations. At the stage of swapna (subconscious) the guide directs the patient to recollect the experience of deep memories and attached emotions that are hidden in the subconscious. This helps to clean the negative emotions which block deep trance and thereby reveals the root cause of illness and aids in the healing process.
