Ravindra Angadi (Author) The Chaukhamba Ayruveda Studies

Ayurveda, a divine and complete life science, developed in Indian subcontinent by the great ancient sages. It is the oldest medical tradition of the world. The doctrine of Ayurveda is based on the harmony of sarira-manasa dosas viz. vata, pitta, kapha & sattva, raja, and tama. Equilibrium state of sarira-manasa dosas provides healthy status to the human body, where as imbalance status causes diseases. This status is synchronizing by the nature using materials already present in nature. Nature is the abundant source of all kinds of material distributed into the plant animal and mineral kingdoms. Requirement of diet and drug fulfilled from the same.

Under the four pillars of successful treatment (catuspada of cikitsa) drug occupied important second position. Drug is a tool of physician. Appropriate drug can only serve the problem. Hence Bhaisajya Kalpana subject was developed. In the curriculum of this subject all the scattered material and factors related with drug manufacturing and dispensing are compiled and frame the syllabi.
