In Astanga Hridaya, Vagbhata says – The person who wishes to lead a long healthy life that keeps him competent to achieve the four purusharthas – dharma (Righteousness), artha (Money), kama (desires) and moksha (salvation); should be very vigilant about following the teachings and guidelines of Ayurveda.



Literature of Ayurveda – Brihatrayi – Charak Samhita

Literature of Ayurveda truly starts from the Vedic era.  It’s evolution thereafter, up to the final compilation in the form of Charak Samhita, Sushruta Samhita, etc.


Literature of Ayurveda – Brihatrayi – Sushruta Samhita and Astanga Hridaya

Sushruta Samhita – Sushruta belongs to Dhanvantari school of thought and is believed to be the Father of Surgery in Ayurveda.Kashiraj Divodas, who is believed to be the second incarnation of Lord Dhanvantari, laid the foundation of Sushruta Samhita.


Literature of Ayurveda – Laghutrayi (Subordinate trio)

The  compendia  after  the  period  of  Vagbhata reflect  further  developments  in contemporary  fields  of  science  and  incorporation  of  more  drugs  in  therapeutics. Madhava nidana, Chikitsa sara, Bhaishajya-ratnavali, Bhavaprakasha, Sharangadhara Samhita, Rasaratna samuccaya, and Yoga ratnakara are few examples of the compilations of literature of the ancient and a relatively recent period.


How to interpret a Sanskrit Sutra? – let us keep it simple

 The knowledge of Ayurveda has been documented by various maharishis in the form of sutras. Sutra literally means a thread that holds things together, and more metaphorically refers to an aphorism (or line, rule, formula) or a collection of such aphorisms. Sutra, being the most concentrated form of knowledge, plays a key role in the propagation of knowledge. Therefore to understand Ayurveda in order to become an Ayurvedic doctor, the first step is to know how to interpret a sutra (Shloka).
