What is SVA - Shaka Vansiya Ayurveda?
SVA is a millenial ayurvedic living tradition - Vaidya Ramakant Mishra, primary Ayurvedic Physician, Researcher, Educator, and Formulator, comes from a long lineage of ayurvedic experts, who once also served as Raj Vaidyas - personal doctors to the royalty of India. The name of the lineage is “shaka vansiya” - from the island of shaka. SVA stands for Shaka Vansiya Ayurveda.
Vaidya Mishra’s has had formal ayurvedic college education followed by years of private training with his father, Vaidya Kameswar Mishra. During his internship he was handed down specialized knowledge passed down from his SVA lineage, makes him a foremost authentic expert in herbal pharmacology, identification, selection, storage, preparation, detoxification, and formulation.

What are SVA Formulations?
Unique pranically charged formulations that are user-friendly, effective, and safe, using multiple advanced delivery systems: oral, transdermal, transmucosal, including protocols for the Transdermal Marma System (TMS).
ALL SVA formulations:
1. have their roots in the ancient ayurvedic knowledge of combining and assembling herbal preparations. a) shastra-s, ancient vedic knowledge; they come from the shastras -
2. have only been improved upon to adapt to modern concerns not existing when the original formulas were put together. The SVA lineage allows specific guidelines for improving upon a formula for contemporary needs based on life-style changes, environmental changes, levels of environmental toxicity, stress factors, and any other factors not originally addressed;
3. are backed by Vaidya’s Mishra’s 40 years of expertise and experience in clinical practice and modern ayurvedic research, in India, Europe, England, Canada, and the United States.
Quality control and quality assurance: our quality control starts from the collection of herbs, spices. We collect from the source, in season, in small batches, by hand, whether it is wild-crafted or organically grown - whenever and wherever available. Many rare herbs are gathered from remote villages where they are grown in small batches. Vaidya personally examines all batches to confirm quality a
and purity, either on one of his many trips to India, or once the herbs arrive at the Southern California premises. Any herbs or raw materials that do not meet the SVA standards are rejected.
Careful cleaning, drying, extra-care during processing, particularly protecting the pranic energy, in addition to the physical energy during processing, are our main focus, in terms of quality
control, and we make sure that every batch we follow the same protocol and care. Vaidya Mishra himself travels to India to meet with herb suppliers, vendors, and local farmers, to find the best
sustainable crops. Otherwise, his son, Rajanikant Mishra, oversees the operations throughout the year.
Assured Purity, Guaranteed Safety
We take your well-being seriously. We rigorously test for heavy metals (lead, arsenic, cadmium and mercury); residual pesticides, and microbiological contamination (E. coli, coliforms, staph and salmonella, etc). We further insure safety and purity through our unique sterilization method involving ozone, gentle steaming
and UV light. This method sterilizes the herbs without any compromise of their effects.
Good Manufacturing Practices
All our products are made in strict accordance with the established GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) at each stage of production and packaging, in state-of-the-art manufacturing premises in
India, and the USA. All the initial sifting, selecting, and primary processing occurs in India. Herbs are then sent over to California, for specific blending and processing to go into the SVA formulations.
Trusted Organic & Wild-crafted Sourcing
Our products are made with organic or wild-crafted herbs sourced from reputable s
mall-yield farmers and regional tribals. Wild-crafted means grown in nature on unpolluted land without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides. Our well-established
working relationship with those who know the land the best allows us to bring the best to you.
Advanced/Alternate Delivery System
SVA formulations include Vaidya Mishra’s unique transdermal creams/roll-ons, Herbal-Memory Nectar drops, Transdermal Body Oils, & Oral Mists. This Advanced/Alternate Delivery System has an advantage over crude herbs as it by-passes the liver and the digestive system (often compromised by toxins and modern diet/lifestyle) for fast, safe delivery to the deepest level of the cellular system.
Proprietary Pranic Preservation
We do Not use chemical preservation - No benzoin, No parabens, No SLS. The original vibrational intelligence of our raw materials are full of Prana. We then maintain the lively prana with the proprietary SVA pranic-preservation system, handed down to Vaidya Mishra through his ancient lineage. This proprietary system maintains the prana found in the living plant. The herb does not ‘die’ at any stage - either during harvesting, packaging, or during the shelf-life of the formulation.
Our Promise for Quality
We never compromise on quality or take short-cuts. For example, we use only pure organic shea butter in our soaps, not the cheaper glycerin found in other ‘natural’ brands. Our spice mixes smell freshly ground because they are! Made only in small batches. And because we do not use fillers, chemicals, or coloring agents. Our massage oils are made with a base of high-grade grapeseed oil and the herbs are classically processed in highly filtered, deodorized sesame oil and/or organic coconut oil. Most other Ayurvedic massage oils are made in undeodorized sesame oil and quickly become rancid and unusable. At www.chandika.com, quality matters.
