BOON OF ACHARYA VAGBHATA - THE VATA PENTAD
Vata is one among the Tridoshas that contributes to 80 types of Nanatmaja Vikaras. It can also leads to the manifestation of other disorders where Vata plays the role of an Anubandha Dosha. To understand the Avasthavishesha of any Vyadhi, the contribution of each Doshas should be separately identified. This is possible by knowing the Dosha Vruddhi Kshaya Lakshanas. The first step in the Chikitsa is Nidana Parivarjana. Because the Rogautpatti starts with Nidana Sevana. For this, detailed knowledge about the Prakopa Nidanas are essential. Among the Brihattrayees, Ashtanga Hrudaya of Vagbhataacharya stands unique in explaining the Vishesha Prakopa Nidanas of Panchavata in 19th chapter of Nidanasthana, Vatashonita Nidana. The knowledge about the Vishesha Prakopa Nidana of each Vata throws a clarity about the etiology and pathogenesis of all diseases, especially Vata Vyadhis. This article aims at exploring and analyzing the Vishesha Prakopa Nidanas said by Acharya Vagbhata in Ashtanga Hrudaya.
