Knowledge of Life
हिताहितम् सुखम् दुखमायुस्तस्य हिताहितम् ।
मानम् च तच्च यत्रोक्तमायुर्वेदह् स उच्यते ॥
In the expressions of Charaka, Ayurveda is the art of life which clarifies what is favorable, disadvantageous, glad and miserable perspectives, alongside what is great or terrible forever and its estimation.
The term Ayurveda has been gotten from two Sanskrit words: Ayus (life) and Veda (learning). The term, along these lines, truly means the learning/exploration of life. The term, thus, literally translates to the knowledge/science of life.
Ayurveda depends on three fundamental sorts of vitality, known as Doshas: Vata, Pita, and Kapha. Each individual is made of these energies communicating one of a kind mix of physical, mental, and passionate attributes.
On the off chance that the extent of doshas in your present state is near your introduction to the world constitution, at that point your wellbeing will be lively. A dissimilarity between these states, be that as it may, demonstrates a condition of irregularity. Vikruti is the term used to depict this imbalanced deviation far from prakruti.
Altogether, there are three essential doshic states:
Adjusted: All three doshas are available in their regular extents; likewise alluded to as “harmony.”
Expanded: A specific dosha is available in a more noteworthy than-typical extent; likewise alluded to as an “exasperated” or “abundance state.”
Diminished: A specific dosha is available in a not as much as would be expected extent; likewise alluded to as a decreased” or “exhausted state.”
Ayurveda offers particularly customized suggestions for each person, going from general way of life changes to the treatment of dis-ease (truly, a lopsidedness inside our characteristic condition of “ease”).
