*Vd. Nitin Bhirud, Vd. Nitin C. Jadhav and Vd. Sanjay Nandedkar

Abstract

Ayurveda is one of the traditional medicinal systems of Indian. The philosophy behind Ayurveda is preventing unnecessary suffering and living a long healthy life. Ayurveda involves the use of natural elements to eliminate the root cause of the disease by restoring balance, at the same time create a healthy life-style to prevent the recurrence of imbalance. In Chakara Samhita, it was stated that the Ayurvedic teaching is transferred by Indra to Bhardwaj, who in turn taught this to Atreya. The disciples of Atreya wrote their own samhitas, with Agnivesha Samhita being the one well-accepted. It is then revised, edited and supplemented by Chakara about 800 years later. Among all the drugs which is described in Asthapanopag gana of Charaka Samhita, maximum drug are Tikta or Katu or Kasaya Rasa Pradhana and most of the drug are Ushna in Virya. It can also be said that the drugs having Katu, Tikta, Kashaya Rasa, Laghu & Ruksha Guna, Ushna Virya and Katu Vipaka play major role in the treatment which is often use in Panchakarma Chikitas as a Kashay Basti (decoction enema). This review made a humble effort to highlight the Asthapanopag gana’ from Charaka Samhita as a natural and safe remedy use as a treatment of Panchakarma Chikitsa.

Keywords: Ayurveda, Asthapanopag Gana, Basti, Charaka Samhita.
