Ayurveda Samhita & Sidhhanta

Ayurveda, being a branch of Veda evolved about 5000 years ago. It deals with the principles of the physical and metaphysical aspects of life. It has established its principles based on the Fundamental principles of Philosophies of India. Hence it does not only aim to prevent and treat the diseases but also to attain salvation.

The word “Ayurveda” refers to “Science of Life”. Ayurveda states that Ayu is the combination of Sharira (Body), Indirya (Sense), Satva (Mana), and Atma (Soul). Shareera is formed by Dosha, Dhatu, and Mala and their equilibrium is considered healthy. Ayurveda describes the principles of maintenance of equilibrium state of Dosha, Dhatu, and Mala to maintain health. If diseases get manifested due to the imbalanced state of these, then specific treatment principles are explained to get rid of the disease. Apart from these principles, Ayurveda also enlightens about salvation (Moksha) of Atma (soul) to get rid of the cycle of rebirth.
