From centuries, Scholars have amazed at a single question: Origin of universe? And with this single question there comes so many in a row about the basic entity, its dimensions. These all questions have no proper description till now but: Each and every scholar has a different opinion according to their intellect knowledge and conscience, but the essence of all is same: Ayurveda through the way of keeping healthy attains you a stage of liberation (Moksha).
The subject with its object
Life its processes and the living states are primary concerns of the science of Ayurveda. It covers the basic knowledge by passing through all the aspects of life viewing the same through the spectacles of living individuals. This whole theme deals with the proceedings of five senses within the instrumentality of mind. The dealing through mind are referred as inner instruments, and the one which deals with our sense and its conscience is known as external instruments. The sense are the only means which can bridge the gap between our inner sphere and outer sphere. They provide us with the views of universe.
But why do we need mind for that, Answer being obvious is: Sense connects us to the outer world but what leads sense to do that is our mind. The basic correlation of mind referred to as Samyoga is the key to process of perception.
Modern Science and Ayurveda
The above context has been highlighted many times in modern science. From proper look it was tested too and related after that defined again and again. Ah….don’t consider we have made something like that, it is a proper referral to the words of P. Ouspensky, the leading mathematician and philosopher of Russia. He stated “Cognition of space and time (it may be noted here that Kala and Dik or time and space are considered as Dravayas or substances by the Vaisesikas), arise in our intellect, during its touch with external world by means of the organs of sense and do not exist in the external world apart from our contract with it”.
Now this makes us shift a bit and tell you about the Charaka’s conception of this subject:
- Phenomenon ánd Noumenon: The fundamental teaching on which the ayurvedic ideas of physiology, pathology, pharmacology, prescription and therapeutics were established are known as the precepts of Panchbhutas. These regulations have been elucidated, among others, by the pitiful darsanas or the six philosophical frameworks of India. Of these, Ayurveda has generally depended on the Nyaya- Vaisesika and Sankhya- Yoga frameworks. It must be watched that the term reasoning utilized here ought not to be mistaken for religion, as it is by and large on the off chance that. Customarily, this term has regularly been mistaken for religion, as it by and large the case. Commonly this term reasoning utilized here ought not be mistaken for the saying super characteristic and the superstitious. On the other hand it has been comprehended and utilized as a part of the past as in the present , to mean, “the science which goes for the clarification of all phenomena of the universe by extreme reasons” and “as the science which goes for a clarification of all phenomena as clarified by and determined into circumstances and end results”. The term a phenomenon here means, the structure through which, it (the thing) gets to be known to the sense and comprehension. It is inverse of noumenon, which signifies “the obscure and mysterious substance or thing as it is in itself”
- Universe and Man: “Man is the epitome of the universe. There is in him as much diversity as in the universe outside him and there is universe as much similarity as in man”
Ref: Ibid 5;3.
- Life or Ayus: “The life spoken of by such synonyms as the union of body, the sense, the mind and spirit: the support, animation, the flux and the link (between the past and future)”
Ref: caraka, sutra 1;42
- The tripod that constitutes man: “The mind, the atma and the body together as it were, are the tripod, the universe endures by the reason of cohesion and all things were established by them”
Ref: Ibid 46
So these were all the basic in a short go but surely we will be back again by the description further. Till then hope it helped a bit of your knowledge. Stay tuned for more. Stay healthy and Happy
