Abstract

Prajnaparada (Intellectual Blasphemy) is willfully ignoring one’s inner knowing and going against norms, intuition and common sense. It is the root cause for all diseases. Involving in verbal, mental or physical activities which are un-favorable to self, harms both body and mind. Actions generated by Prajnaparada aggravate Tridosha (bodily humors) and stimulate Rajas and Tamo Gunas (psychological attributes) allowing disease to be established.
