Editorial Crossroad Philosophy “Ayurveda is at crossroads” - is the statement of Ayurveda learned community for past two decades. A science developed from many centuries in the shade of multi ethnic, multi lingual, multi racial Indian peninsula exhibited its impact on health uplift and also foreign trade economy. Present day Ayurveda stalwarts' contributions are inadequate to bring back the glory of the past to Ayurveda. One way the Ayurveda is at crossroads. The CCIM (Ayurveda education Governing body), AYUSH (Ayurveda Health & Family welfare body), CCRAS (Ayurveda research directional body) and Scientific Medicine (Alternative medicine for Ayurvedic physician) are the 4 directions sited at crossroad of Ayurveda to approach. Will the Ayurveda Panacea able to get the past glory? When one is at a crossroads in life, what does one do? If you're standing on the Path and you've come to a fork in the road, you might notice yourself saying, “Ahh! What do I do? Do I go left, do I go right, or do I just go straight..?” How does one know which step to take towards which direction? To be in a cross, we should be from either of the way. The common loom to the cross is through CCIM curriculum for an introducing scholar of Ayurveda. When he reach the cross is unable to judge what curriculum is given to him and not able to get the confidence over the system or able to develop the skills. There are many recommendations appear to reform and put forth in practice. The big question from past four decades is whether the Ayurveda student is taught the Samhita based or Subject based teaching. Of course the followed 'subject oriented teacher centered education' is proving the inadequacies. These areas must be bridged with introducing the researches incorporated in to the subject and making the subject stronger with evidences. There by the Ayurveda practicing area is get facilitated with suitable evidences and skills. Crossroad philosophy is too perilous phenomenon where the pessimistic attitudes are developing. Ayurveda even though claim that it is a lifestyle making medical faculty, do not wish to adopt the present day circumstances of lifestyles and advances in the medical practice. The age old traditions must reframe to the present situation and brought forward as skill to the learner. At the cross it is certain that we do not know what is behind curtain. But still with the scientific guidelines available have to take a chance of making something instead of nothing. In this process of adaptations in the field of research a blind follow or plagiarism is increasing. The established patterns of research are to be followed from either CCRAS or WHO alternative medicine guidelines. AYUSH as a governing body has to invite the mandatory research projects from the institutes, centers and even from the dispensaries to improve and standardize the Ayurveda medicines and concepts. Good olden traditional formulations do require the authorization of practice in present scenario either with the help of CCRAS or AYUSH.

SRP Kethamakka, Editorial, JISM, Vol-1, Num-2, pp 52-53 A step towards this direction certainly makes the Ayurveda fraternity to have bright tomorrow. This is a time of epochal change in Ayurveda and to spread across the developed countries who have ability to pay for their better health in the world. It would be a grave mistake if we turned inward as a result of current difficulties appearing at crossroads. We should be confident and outward looking. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . There must be a few times in life when you stand at a precipice of a decision. When you know there will forever be a before and an after . . . . . . . . . I knew there would be no turning back if I designated this moment . . . . . . . . . Each day is a new beginning. You can start fresh, anticipating what today will bring. Or you can just settle for yesterday's doubts, fears, or worries. Which road will you take? Do you take the path to the clear present or the shadows of the past?
