Introduction by Erin Casperson, Dean of the Kripalu School of Ayurveda

The Doctor from India is a meditative and immersive portrait of the life and work of Dr. Vasant Lad, the holistic health pioneer who first brought the ancient medical practice of Ayurveda from India to the west in the late 1970s. Integrating his gifts as both a healer and a mystic, Dr. Lad has dedicated his life to sharing what is considered the oldest healthcare system on earth in the complex medical landscape of the United States. This is the beautiful and inspiring story of a man who has for decades been quietly at the center of a revolutionary movement to change the way we care for our bodies and our spirits.

“The Doctor from India radiates effortlessly with a heartfelt earnestness... As we continue to re-incorporate our ancient health systems into contemporary medical sciences, there is much we need still must learn about what constitutes healthy living. While the debate still rages about the utility of Ayurveda, Lad continues to be a source of inspiration and healing to the communities he and his clinics serve. This film spotlights a niche of the human culture well worth exploring”
