Hiroo Komine is a Japanese who has studied Ayurveda, Traditional Indian Medicine often translated as Science of Life, in Gujarat Ayurveda University and is currently working in HATAI CLINIC since 2008, a private clinic delivering alternative medicines in Tokyo Japan. He is the first Japanese male to complete the course and registered as official Ayurvedic practitioner in the state of Gujarat. Besides his main work, he also teaches in few Ayurvedic schools. His notion of the common public view of Ayurveda in Japan and to some extent in West is that it is highly inclined to images of “modern day yogic spiritual practices.” He thinks Ayurveda is much more than reciting mantra “Om.....” and be vegetarian, confined with in the rigid picture of modern day “Yogic Spiritualism,” which you see in the magazines. Ayurveda is to be much more free thinking, it is to be “playful,” with the world itself, thus he reckons Ayurveda is about “hacking life and everything around us.” He is interested in fusing traditional Ayurveda and Life Hacking with DIY bio approaches and wishes to present Ayurveda more freely. He has been trying to self- teach himself some of DIYbio, along with its peripherals but it seems he has not been very succesful implementing due to ups and downs of life experiences.
