BHU Rolls Out Course On ‘Bhoot Vidya’ For Doctors

Varanasi: Studying paranormal science is not new in India. Several institutes have supported programmes and research scholars who have remained intrigued by supernatural activities.

Realising the growing demand for the subject, Banaras Hindu University has announced the roll-out of a six-month-long certificate programme on ‘Bhoot Vidya’.

However, unlike other institutes, BHU would be opening the course to doctors only to study the remedies and psychotherapy to treat psychosomatic disorders in patients who might have experienced unnatural activities in the surroundings.

Doctors practicing Ayurveda can also apply for the course.

“Bhoot Vidya is one of the eight basic branches of Ashtanga Ayurveda. It mainly deals with psychosomatic disorders, diseases caused by unknown reasons and diseases of mind or psychic conditions. The faculty of Ayurveda at BHU is the first in the country to create a separate unit of Bhoot Vidya and design a certificate course on the subject,” India Today reported quoting Ayurveda faculty dean Yamini Bhushan Tripathi.

A separate unit of Bhoot Vidya has been created in the faculty of Ayurveda for imparting formal education to doctors about the branch, he said. The academic council of the university, which met recently, has approved the course and creating a separate unit of Ashtanga Ayurveda.
