Vaikunthanath Das Kaviraj
Vaikunthanath Das Kaviraj was a homeopathic pioneer with heart and soul. His discoveries for the homeopathic treatment of plants will revolutionize our environment and agriculture.
Enclosed please find an obituary of Cathy Mayer, who was with him till his passing away:
I would like you to know that Kaviraj has passed away at 6.30 pm, peacefully in his sleep. He was fully alert until the end. He stuck to his opinion until the moment of his death.
Even the local allopathic doctor who came to sign the legal papers declared : " So it was a men who fought until death for what he believed in, this makes him highly respectable." And he is so right. But you have to admit that only Kaviraj could pull this one off. Get respect from an allopathic doctor who had never met him before. (Very kind doctor I must say)
When I told him; I loved him, his answer was" I love ALL of you".
I know we will all keep him in our thoughts, so I guess my mission is over here, there is not much more to say or enough to never stop.
Born in the Netherlands in 1946, Kaviraj began working, at the age of 14, in tree nurseries and on organic dairy farms.
He became seriously ill during a trip to India and was cured with homeopathy. The desire to understand what had cured him, when everything else had failed, led to an apprenticeship in the 1970s followed by 10 years running Dr. Chatterjee‘s rural clinic.
His work with plants began in Switzerland in 1986 when a friend suggested he try treating an apple orchard that had developed a virulent bright red rust.
This experience inspired the years of research in Australia and Europe that form the basis of his guide Homeopathy for Farm and Garden.
In his last years he travelled untiringly from country to country to spread his great experience to homeopaths, farmers and gardeners - from Haiti, Kenya, Canada over India and finally to France.
A day before he died he recommended to ask Christiane Maute concerning a question about the homeopathic treatment of plants and said that she would be able to help in the future.
Thank you Kaviraj!
