Raising the Spirit of Humanity
In the almost 40 years of his spectacular career as a dedicated doctor, researcher, teacher and author, Dr. Govindarajan (popularly known as Rajan) Sankaran has revolutionized the practice of homeopathy not only in India, where he lives, but across the world. What he has done to change the way homeopaths understand and practice homeopathy has earned him a prominent place not only in the annals of this increasingly popular system of alternative medicine but also in the hearts of legions of people whose lives he has enhanced, directly or indirectly.
He did his M.D. (Hom) from Aurangabad University in 2006.
Dr. Rajan Sankaran’s trailblazing research and relentless efforts to streamline and bring consistency to the practice of homeopathy have brought into focus a holistic and natural system of medicine that has proved to be very efficacious. His towering contributions to homeopathy have transformed the field, leading to an explosion of new research, study groups and organizations. He has started a movement to educate and enlighten that has rapidly gained momentum across continents. In the process he has brought together diverse schools of homeopathy that are converging for a common cause.
By unstintingly sharing his knowledge across the world, he has helped guide and inspire a whole new generation of homeopaths to look beyond the physical symptoms to the personality and spirit of a patient.
Dr. Sankaran has always led by example, using his pioneering concepts to heal thousands of patients through his Mumbai-based practice. His focus on holistic treatment that combines homeopathic remedies with music, meditation, yoga and diet has had extremely successful results.
In the world of homeopathy, among practitioners and patients alike, his name evokes not only awe and respect but immense gratitude. In his quiet but determined way he has helped bring hope to humanity and this, more than anything, makes him deserving of the rest of the world’s recognition and appreciation.
- Dr. Sankaran works tirelessly and with unflagging enthusiasm on all his diverse teaching and mentoring projects, research activities for new remedies, and his own practice. His passion for learning has been the hallmark of his life and is evident in everything he does. What stands out through is his compassion for his patients, and his enduring desire to bring them back to wellness – mind, body and spirit. Clearly, what drives Dr. Sankaran is his deep love of God and his abiding affection for his fellowmen. He sees himself as an instrument of service with everything he does coming through him rather than being of him.
- He remains in touch with the world beyond homeopathy, as is evident in his acclaimed book ‘Dog, Yogi, Banyan Tree’. A collection of anecdotes from his life, the book reveals the different facets of the son of a renowned homeopath who stepped out from his father’s shadow to become one of the leading lights of homeopathy himself.
Dr. Rajan Sankaran (born in 1960, Mumbai, India), is a Practitioner, Research Scientist, Teacher and Author of Homoeopathy System of Medicine. He lives and practices in Juhu area of Mumbai, India.
Dr. Rajan Sankaran is the illustrious son of the well known Homeopathic Teacher, Dr. P. Sankaran.
He graduated from the Bombay (Mumbai) Homeopathic Medical College in 1981. He was on the Teaching Faculty of that same institution, now known as Smt. Chandaben Mohanbhai Patel Homoeopathic Medical College, as an Assistant Professor of Repertory and was an Honorary Physician. He did his M.D. (Hom) from Aurangabad University in 2006.
He is an internationally renowned thinker, teacher and writer of the homeopathic system of medicine. He is reputed to be a clear and original thinker and is best known for his path breaking concepts in Homoeopathy.
His understanding of ‘disease as a delusion’ followed by his discovery of newer miasms, classification of diseased states into kingdoms (viz. plant, mineral and animal) and the seven levels of experience, brought in much more clarity into understanding diseased states. This paved way to one of the most path-breaking concept of eliciting the vital sensation in the patient, the common thread of experience which runs through the patient at all levels. This method, popular as ‘Sensation method’, was yet not the end of the untiring efforts to simplify the system of homoeopathic practice. The Sensation method has now evolved into a more comprehensive and synergistic approach, which strongly advocates to encompass and integrate the old, classical and traditional approaches with the latest advances. This approach –‘The Synergy of Homoeopathy’, has resulted in a far greater predictability of results than ever before.
Dr. Sankaran also heads ‘the other song’ The International Academy of Advanced Homoeopathy’, in Mumbai.
This academy primarily focuses on imparting advanced clinical training to students and practitioners, integrated with a homoeopathic healing centre.
Dr. Sankaran’s lucid style and simplicity also make him very popular as a teacher amongst homoeopaths worldwide. His seminars and teaching courses have been widely attended in India and abroad. He has lectured in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, England, France, Germany, Holland, Israel, Italy, New Zealand, Norway, Russia, Slovakia, Spain, South Africa, Switzerland and U.S.A. Along with his colleagues, he founded The Homoeopathic Research and Charities, which is an Institution involved in various teaching courses.
Dr. Rajan Sankaran is successfully conducted an online learning programme ‘Wednesdays With Rajan’ (WWR). Watched over 43 countries, with over 700 participants, WWR was one of the most successful online programmes in the present time. A sequel of WWR, WWR-II is also launched.
