What really makes Buddha Kalari different is the emphasis on tradition. The things, that are experienced here cannot be learned from books, by seeing photos or by watching videos. The oils used for the treatment at our Kalari Ashram are organic and hand-made on site under the direct supervision of the master. The medicines we use in the treatments are made according to the recipes which are thousands of years old. These are contained in ancient palm leaf documents, passed down to Dr. C.S. Suchith from his ancestors and teachers. We see that it is our duty to preserve the traditions of the past for the benefit of future generations.
Buddha Kalari is truly a unique place. It is the only place that you will find a martial art, Ayurvedic healing and a spiritual tradition that are part of one cohesive system. Our Ashram is an ideal centre for those seeking retreat, healing and a place to find inner peace.
The Sri Buddha Institute of Martial Arts (Buddha Kalari), an academy of Kalaripayattu and centre for Marma has the distinction of keeping alive the great legacy of martial arts and marma chikilsa handed down for generations since 1924. During the last eight decades, it has pioneered in Kalari Marma chikilsa, based on Ayurveda and has guided the evolution of the tradition of Kalari Marma Treatment.
