There is no need to fear traditional medicines to treat people, Art of Living founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar said on Saturday.

He was speaking at the inauguration of BRICS Wellness Workshop which aims to highlight the benefits of Indian systems of medicine.

"No need to be prejudiced towards the age-old systems of medicine. They were discovered thousands of years ago and our ancestors have proved their worth centuries back. Now, the entire world is looking at India thanks to yoga and other health-related concepts. Many foreign countries are adopting our traditional medicines as well as yoga. It is time we hightlight them in India too," he said.

"India could share its traditional wisdom in a systematic and scientific manner with the rest of the world. The need of the hour is to marry traditional medicine with modern drugs," Sri Sri pointed out.
