AYURVEDA

Agnivesa was Bharadvaja’s disciple. He wrote an exhaustive work on Ayurveda in the seventh or eighth century B.C.

Charaka is the next famous teacher of Ayurveda. He lived in the second century B.C. He collected all previous knowledge of the science in his book Charaka Samhita. In its revised form, this is the standard work on Ayurveda even today. It is written in the Sanskrit language. In fact, all works of Ayurveda are in Sanskrit.

Charaka says that every student of Ayurveda should take an oath. According to it, he must remain a bachelor, always speak the truth, be free from envy or hate and avoid violence. Above all, he should dedicate his whole life to the science.

Charaka describes in detail in his book how the child grows in its mother’s womb; the human system; symptoms of diseases; how diseases should be found out and treated. Charaka’s medicines have all to be made out of herbs.
