Abstract

UTILITY OF VAYA AND AYU PARIKSHA ACCORDING TO AYURVEDA

*Dr. Hari Shankar, Prof. Mahesh Dixit, Prof. Hari Mohan Meena and Dr. Namo Narayan Meena

ABSTRACT

The word Ayurveda comes from the Sanskrit root Ayu which means span of life. The purpose of examination of Ayu is to obtain knowledge regarding longevity, residual span of life in diseased person and rate of the mortality. The purpose of Dashavidha Pariksha is to obtain knowledge regarding Dosha Bala (Vyadhi Bala), Bala (Rogibala) and Ayu of the patient as described in Charak Samhita. Commonly Ayu and Vaya are regarded as synonyms but they are not similar terms. Hence, description of Vaya and Ayu is separately mentioned in Charaka as well as Sushruta Samhita. Description exclusively on Ayu Pareeksha described in Charaka Viman Sthana, Charaka Chikitsasthana, Charaka Indriya Sthana and Charaka Shareer Sthana. In Indriya Sthana, Ayu Pariksha indicates the residual life-span of the diseased person. In Sushruta Samhita, Ayu is classified into three broad headings namely Dirghayu, Madhyamayu and Alpayu and explained the characteristic properties of all the three.

Keywords: Dashavidha Pariksha, Vaya Pariksha, Ayu, Ayu Pariksha.
