AN INSIGHT INTO THE ROLE OF VIHARA FOR DHATUSAMYATA
The main objective of Ayurveda is maintenance of Dhatusamyata, which inturn causes health. The concept of Trisutra i.e., Hetu, Linga and Oushadha has been specified for the fulfillment of very aim of maintaining the health of healthy individual and to cure the disease of patient. There is need to emphasize Trisutra of Swastha, as the primary objective of Ayurveda is Swasthasya Swasthya Rakshana. It is said that nothing exists if one is not healthy, so one should take care of himself neglecting anything else. Hence the knowledge of Trisutra of Swastha is the best way to prevent the disease and to protect the health in healthy individuals. The function or main aim of Swasthyaparipalana is to maintain the status of Swastha Lakshanas. All the phenomenon present in universe are contained in individual and vice versa. Loka-Purusha have mutual understanding in regulation of one another which is established by Loka-Purusha Siddhantha. Loka regulates the Purusha through Desha, Kala etc. The Ahara, Vihara of an individual plays important role in state of health. So Vihara of Purusha interlinked with or dependent upon surrounding environment like Desha, Kala and so on. Attainment of Dhatusamya for healthiness or wellbeing in individual is determined by Shareerika and Manasika Karma which are practiced in day to day activities with respect to Ahara, Vihara, Achara, which are the components of Swasthya Hetu. These components determine the Swasthya Avastha (health status) of Purusha. For Arogya or Swasthya Nimittha, always should have Hita Sevana relating to Ahara (diet), Aachara (conduct), Chesta (action). So here an attempt is made to throw a light on role of Vihara i.e., Dinacharya, Ratricharya and Ritucharya, which is one among the prime component of Swasthya Hetu in Swasthya Rakshana.
