Preserving an ancient medical heritage

Sri Ramana Maharshi Natural Remedies Society started in 1997 as a Shanthimalai project for conserving and cultivating medicinal plants and producing herbal medicines. In 2003, the Society became fully independent under the direction of Mr. Shivakumar - one of its original employees. Today, it employs 10 people and provides healing remedies to local markets and visitors from around the world. The Society also supplies the Shanthimalai medical clinic.

"When we started, it was a wasteland here. Now more than 200 varieties of plants grow on this land. It is truly God's gift, there are no other words to say."
