Our centre, with its strong roots in Ayurveda, offers free consultation services to promote people’s well-being and nurture the health of the common man. We also encourage students of Pharmacy, Botany, Chemistry, and other related fields to explore the science of Ayurveda by conducting seminars and workshops through signing MOUs with respective colleges. Additionally, we spread awareness about Ayurveda’s role in ensuring human health at various healthcare shows and Khadi expositions.

Foundation of Jīvaka

Jīvaka Phārma was established on November 26, 1970, on the holy day of Sri Dhanwantari Jayanthi, by Dr Samala Ramesh Babu and his brother, Dr Samala Lakshmana Babu. The company is named after Vaidya Jīvaka Komārabhacca, the personal physician of Gowthama Buddha. The brothers aimed to produce high-quality Ayurvedic products at affordable prices, and they were greatly influenced by their mentor, the renowned Guru, Scholar, and Physician Dr Achanta Lakshmipathi.

Dr Samala Ramesh Babu’s vast knowledge of Ayurveda has been instrumental in shaping the philosophy and culture of Jīvaka. However, his contributions are not just limited to Jīvaka. He has significantly contributed to Ayurvedic science through his teachings, literature, formulations, research and treatment techniques. Dr. Samala Ramesh Babu has also played a pivotal role in the successful run of M/s. Academy of Ayurveda, which Dr Namburi Hanumantha Rao founded.

Dr Samala Lakshmana Babu’s leadership qualities and dedication to customer satisfaction have been crucial to Jīvaka’s growth. Additionally, Dr Nagalingam Lakshmi Narasimha Rao and Dr Samala Sachi Devi were the driving forces behind Jīvaka. They were both passionate about bringing new products and improving the quality of health products in various therapeutic segments, which helped Jīvaka support its growth strategy and bring positive change to the community.

Why the name Jīvaka?

Who is Jīvaka?

Jīvaka Komārabhacca is prominent in Ayurveda and Buddhist medical systems and traditions. He is often referred to as the “Medicine King” in various early Buddhist texts, including the Buddha Jātaka Tales, Jīvaka Sūtras, Mahā Vāghamu, and other sources. He is recognised as the founder of Buddhist medicine (Sowa Rigpa) and is known for his admirable personality traits. Jīvaka’s teachings, works, and scriptures can be found in the medical scrolls of Asian countries such as India, China, Thailand, and Tibet.

Why the name Jīvaka?

The story of Jīvaka begins with him as an orphan and ends with him being a renowned physician and surgeon who lived in the 6th and 5th centuries BCE. He served as the personal physician of Gowthama Buddha and his noblemen and the Royal physician of King Bimbisara and Ajathasatru.

Jīvaka was a person who highly valued research, utilised his medical expertise to serve humanity, and committed himself to treating human illnesses with natural resources. He remained devoted and free from worldly desires. Our company, JĪVAKA, is inspired by these principles and strives to uphold them in all our endeavours.
