CONCEPT OF SATKARYAVADA AND ITS APPLICATION IN AYURVEDA
Dr. Hari Krishna Shriwas* and Dr. Rupendra Chandrakar
Ayurveda is a Sarvaparishada Shastra which means this system of medicine is related to al its scriptures, takes into account even the mutual y divergent views expressed in various philosophical systems so far as they do not oppose the Ayurvedic concepts. The most nearest branch of Ayurveda is the Darshana Shastra (philosophical texts). There are similarities of some concepts of Ayurveda and Darshana Shastra, but as the Prayojana (aim) of both Shastra are different, they have been advocated in a different way. One such concept taken by Saankhya Darshana is “Satkaaryavaada,” which is mentioned in respect to Srishti (evolution of universe). This theory is taken as it is in Ayurveda but applied in different manner.
Keywords: Ayurveda, Darshana, Saankhya, Sarvaparishada, Satkaaryavaada.
