Abstract




Textual knowledge and practical knowledge is inevitable to learn and practice any scientific subjects. To master the text, one must be mastered the language in which the original text has been written. The science of Ayurveda has written in Sanskrit. Sanskrit is a language which has a scientifically structured grammar. By adding the prefixes and suffixes, it gives varied meaning to a single word. So, one has to learn it perfectly while handling that language. Even the same root can express different meanings as they are listed under different groups which undergo various grammatical processes. The knowledge in the learning tools used is very important in learning the scientific scripts written in Sanskrit.
