Abstract

Acharya Chakrapani clearly says that the condition free from disease is Swastha and regimens followed to keep the individual healthy are Swastha Vrutta. Acharya Sushruta explains Swastha as a condition where there will be Sama Dosha, Sama Agni, Sama Dhatu, proper Mala Kriya, Prasanna Atma-Mana, which is even now accepted by WHO also where they defined health as a state of complete physical, mental, and social well being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. Netra being the most important Indriya among all the Indriya, it is very necessary to maintain its health. Creating awareness among the people regarding the concepts of Dinacharya, Rutucharya, Sadvrutta helps to decrease the increasing life style diseases. The concept of Ahara is very much important when it comes to Dosha and Dhatu Samyata. Being Nayana Chintakas, it is our duty to explore the things which our Acharyas explained clearly to maintain Swasthya. In this aspect an attempt is made to gather the information which is specifically explained as a part of Swastha Vrutta in relation with Netra.
