Ayurveda College

na caurahāryaṃ na ca rājahāryaṃ
na bhrātṛbhājyaṃ na ca bhārakāri।
vyaye kṛte vardhata eva nityaṃ
vidyādhanaṃ sarvadhanapradhānam॥

No one can steal it, no authority can snatch it.
Not divided among brothers, not heavy to carry.
As you spend, it increases, as you share, it expands.
Knowledge is the most important wealth.

The Aryavaidya Patasala was started in the year 1917 at Calicut by Late Vaidyaratnam P.S.Varier, the founder of Arya Vaidya Sala and was run by the Arya Vaidya Samajam, a registered society. The Patasala was financed by the Arya Vaidya Sala, Kottakkal. A four-year course leading to the diploma ‘Arya Vaidyan’ was conducted. In 1924, the Patasala was shifted to Kottakkal to give practical training to students in Arya Vaidya Sala Charitable Hospital. The Arya Vaidyan course was abolished in 1958, and the ‘Diploma in Ayurvedic Medicine (D.A.M) course was introduced. In 1959, the Aryavaidya Patasala was upgraded to an Ayurveda College.
